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.
If we can assist you in any way --- please contact us. We would love to have the opportunity to pray for you or answer your questions along with helping you along life's journey.

Read Psalm 78:1–39; Acts 24:1–27
Paul was outnumbered as he stood before Felix. Leaders from Jerusalem, including the high priest and a smooth-talking lawyer, were well prepared and determined to win their case against him.
“We have found this man to be a troublemaker, stirring up riots among the Jews all over the world. He is a ringleader of the Nazarene sect” (Acts 24:5).
Paul had every reason to feel threatened and anxious. He didn’t have an attorney to speak for him. His thoughts may have raced and his heart may have beat faster as the governor motioned for him to speak. But God was with him. Clearly and calmly he answered his accusers. He affirmed his faith in God and did not deny that he was a “follower of the Way.”
Today it is becoming more and more common for Christians to be intimidated and harassed for taking a biblical stand about moral issues. They may end up in costly court battles for choosing to do what is right in God’s eyes. Jobs may be lost, livelihoods destroyed, but God will not abandon His people. He will help them.
Challenge for Today: What price are you willing to pay for your faith?
Quicklook: Acts 24:1–14
