Spiritual Foundation

Baptism of the Holy Spirit

Romans 5:12; Ephesians 2:8

Man is a created being made in the image of God, but through Adam’s fall, sin came into the world.  Salvation is God’s gift of redemption to man through faith in His son, Jesus Christ.

“Write the vision down. Make it plain on tablets that he who reads it may run.”                       Habakkuk 2:2

Statement of Purpose

“He has given unto us everything we need pertaining to life and godliness in the knowledge of Him."   2 Peter 1:3

Abundant Living Bible College programs exist to train men and women in the knowledge of the Scriptures.  The Bible college is designed to bring the hearer to a place of knowledge to live their best life ever.  As they discover through instruction over some time, the goal is that each person has a basic understanding of who God is in their life, who they are in Christ, and the authority they possess.  Each student will be able to navigate through the scriptures to discover the deeper things of God and what His promises are to those who believe.

Abundant Living Bible College program provides quality Spirit-filled Biblical instruction, academic training, and practical education to men and women desiring Biblical training, or those who are called into ministry.

Statement of Faith

The Scriptures

2 Timothy 3:16, 17

The Bible is the inspired Word of God, an infallible guide for life.

God is one, manifested in the three persons:  Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. Each member serves in different functions, and they each possess equal power and authority.

The Fall of Man & Redemption

Romans 5:12; Ephesians 2:8

Man is a created being made in the image of God, but through Adam’s fall, sin came into the world.  Salvation is God’s gift of redemption to man through faith in His son, Jesus Christ.

Eternal Life

John 3:15, 16

Jesus is the total substitutionary sacrifice.  He was made sin that we might be righteous; He was made a curse that we might be made rich.

The Godhead

1 John 5:7; Genesis 1:26; Matthew 28:19

Water Baptism

Matthew 3:13-16, 28:19; John 3:22

Baptism in water is by immersion and is for believers only

The Baptism of the Holy Spirit

Acts 1:5, 2:1-4

The Holy Spirit is a gift promised to all believers accompanied by the evidence of speaking in tongues.

Divine Healing

1 Peter 2:24; James 5:14

Healing is provided through the atonement of Christ for every believer.

Great Commission

Mark 16:15; Matthew 28:19-20

Every believer is called to proclaim God’s message of freedom and liberty.  We believe God has endowed us with His power, His wisdom, His love, and His anointing.

Return of Christ

1 Corinthians 15:51-53;

2 Peter 3:13; Revelation 21-22

His coming is imminent.  When He comes, the dead in Christ shall rise first; then, those alive and remain shall be caught up together in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air.  Following the tribulation, He shall return to the earth with His saints, and He shall reign forever. 

Statement of Final Authority for matters of Faith/Belief & Conduct

The statement of faith does not exhaust the extent of our beliefs. The Bible itself, as the inspired and infallible Word of God, speaks with final authority concerning truth, morality, and the proper conduct of mankind. The Bible is the sole and final source of all that we believe. ALC’s senior pastor and leadership are the ALBC’s final interpretive authority on the Bible’s meaning and application for faith, doctrine, practice, policy, and discipline. 

Statement on Marriage, Gender, and Sexuality

We believe that God wonderfully and immutably creates each person as male or female. These two distinct, complementary genders together reflect the image and nature of God. (Genesis 1:26-27) Rejection of one’s biological sex is a rejection of the image of God within that person. 
We believe that the term “marriage” has only one meaning: the uniting of one man and one woman in a single, exclusive union, as delineated in Scripture. (Genesis 2:18-25) We believe that God intends sexual intimacy to occur only between a man and a woman who are married to each other. (1 Corinthians 6:18; 7:2-5; Hebrews 13:4) We believe that God has commanded that no intimate sexual activity be engaged in outside of a marriage between a man and a woman.
We believe that any form of sexual immorality (including adultery, fornication, homosexual behavior, bisexual conduct, bestiality, incest, and use of pornography) is sinful and offensive to God. (Matthew 15:18-20; 1 Corinthians 6:9-10) 
We believe that in order to preserve the function and integrity of ALBC and to provide a biblical role model to all ALBC students and the community, it is imperative that all persons in service with or in attendance at ALBC, in any capacity whether paid or as a volunteer, agree to and abide by this Statement on Marriage, Gender, and Sexuality. (Matthew 5:16; Philippians 2:14-16; 1 Thessalonians 5:22) 
We believe that God offers redemption and restoration to all who confess and forsake their sin, seeking His mercy and forgiveness through Jesus Christ. (Acts 3:19-21; Romans 10:9-10; 1 Corinthians 6:9- 11) 
We believe that every person must be afforded compassion, love, kindness, respect, and dignity. (Mark 12:28-31; Luke 6:31). Hateful and harassing behavior or attitudes directed toward any individual are to be repudiated and are not in accord with scripture nor the doctrines of Abundant Life Church or ALBC.
