Abundant Life Church began in the home of Tony and Pam Roberts in December 2005 with eight people present. From that humble beginning the members moved to a storefront at Thompson Plaza in March 2006. From there the congregation walked across Kent Dairy Road on January 4, 2009 and made the present location their new home. Abundant Life Church is a body of Christian believers dedicated to continuing the work that was started by Jesus Christ and his disciples. We believe we are living the continuation of the Book of Acts. We also believe that as born again followers of Christ, we can experience the same power that was demonstrated on the Day of Pentecost. Abundant Life Church is affiliated with the United Pentecostal Church International. If the congregation of Abundant Life Church can assist you or your family in any way, we stand willing to help, and if you do not have a regular place of worship, we invite you to join us.

May God Bless.

What We Believe


We believe in One eternally existing God who created all things and by whom all things exist. God has revealed Himself to us as Father, Son, and Holy Spirit, with distinct personal attributes, but without division of nature, essence, or being. Read About It

The Bible

We believe the Bible is the inspired Word of God. The Holy Bible, and only the Bible, is the authoritative Word of God. It alone is the final authority in determining all doctrinal truthts. We accept the Scriptures as the final authority in all manners of faith and conduct. Read About It

Jesus Christ

We believe that Jesus Christ is the Son of God, who was born of a virgin, lived a sinless life, was crucified on Calvary for our sins, and bodily rose from the dead; and that he has been exalted to the throne of God where he is the only mediator between God and man. He alone is Lord and Savior. We believe that through this death, burial, and resurrection we have personal salvation and power for victorious living. Read About It


We believe that all have sinned and stand in the need of redemption, which is received by grace through faith in Jesus Christ, His death (Repentance), burial (Water Baptism), and resurrection (Holy Spirit). Salvation is a gift from God, not a result of our good works or any human efforts. Read About It


We believe that all people are called to repent – it is God’s will that no one perish, but everyone come to repentance. Repentance is a commitment to turn away from sin in every area of our lives and to follow Jesus fully. Read About It

Water Baptism

We believe that following faith in the Lord Jesus Christ, new believers are commanded by the Word of God to be baptized in Jesus name. Water baptism is an act of obedience which signifies our union with Jesus in death to sin, burial of the old nature, and resurrection to new life. Read About It

Holy Spirit

We believe that the Holy Spirit is active in the world today and that the baptism of the Holy Spirit with the initial sign of speaking in other tongues is the privilege and promise of all believers. Read About It

For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the LORD, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.
