Psalm 145:4 says "Each generation will announce to the next your wonderful and powerful deed". There is much to tell to the next generation - how Jesus powerfully saves and transforms lives, how He still heals and delivers and brings us out of our old lives and makes us new.
We invite you to meet Jesus. He is the center of the people in Abundant Life. As a church we want you to know that GOD has a plan for your life. Abundant LIFE Church is a Spirit-filled--- a 'come as you are' church in the heart of Altoona, PA.
We have some very exciting and powerful events coming in the next few months. Please check out our church calendar on the website or our weekly bulletin for updates. You are personally invited to come along and share in all that Abundant Life has to offer. We want to meet the needs of each person, every family and our community.

The Power of Repentance
Read 2 Chronicles 5:1 through 7:22; John 7:14–36
“If my people, who are called by my name, will humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, and I will forgive their sin and will heal their land” (2 Chronicles 7:14).
Although Israel seemed to be at a spiritual high point, God knew His people would not remain there. They would sin, and He would punish them. But the punishment would not have to last indefinitely. God promised the people that if they would repent and seek Him, He would forgive them and end their punishment.
While that promise applied directly to the ancient Israelites, its principle applies to God’s people today. When Christians sin, God can and will punish them; however, repentance and prayer will bring forgiveness and restoration for God’s people today just as it did in ancient times.
When Christians become aware of personal sin, they should repent and seek God. An awareness of national sin should also drive Christians to pray.
Prayer Suggestion: Lord, forgive us and heal our land.
