What do we mean by "Living Abundantly?"

God is limitless, and serving Him as He calls us to should make a difference in our lives.

We are called by God out of sin and fear and weakness into His marvelous light. Jesus healed people who had spent their everything searching for healing, brought people back to life, and He told His disciples to not worry about their future because He would care for them. Jesus changes the way we live and He called it “more abundantly".

Living abundantly is better than being just wealthy. Consider happy Christian families who are secure in their relationships and helping others, and then contrast how the richest most famous people in our world are killing themselves, are addicted, and can't keep their spouses or their children.

There's more to life than the goals of money and fame. There's Jesus, the Holy Spirit, and being a part of the kind of Church that God established through the Apostles. There is the purpose and the abundance of God. 

These “Next Steps” are simple and early ways that we have seen people make a Christian change. Our world is full of the fear-of-missing-out and scarcity thinking. Jesus offers an abundance in the Fruit of the Spirit, in Friendship, in the Hope of Heaven, in Purpose with Direction, and His Holy Spirit. It's not easy to make that switch from scarcity and our culture to Jesus with His abundance, and these activities help. 

So please choose your Next Step and let us know so that we can pray for your progress, and be ready to help.

In Jesus name,

- Pastor Seagraves
