What we believe
At ALCC, we believe in the power of the presence of God. We believe in a family and a body of believers who live in an atmosphere of love and operate in the supernatural power of The Holy Spirit. We believe that any person who has breath in their lungs has a destiny, a calling, and a purpose and here at Abundant Life, we strive to empower believers and send out people equipped with their identity in Christ. As a body, we also believe in the love of the Father and the inability to escape it.
