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.

Believing a Lie
Read Isaiah 42:1 through 44:23; Ephesians 4:1–32
No one stops to think, no one has the knowledge or understanding to say, “Half of it I used for fuel; I even baked bread over its coals, I roasted meat and I ate. Shall I make a detestable thing from what is left? Shall I bow down to a block of wood?” (Isaiah 44:19).
The worship of carved statues still exists, but to most Western sensibilities a handmade object seems to have little to no power to deliver anyone from anything. Yet idolatry takes on many different forms. Today people trust in bank accounts and their own ability to build up the accounts. They worship fame or prestige and the talents that gave them the ability to acquire those things. People look to television or computer games to take away pain. And in doing so, they fail to recognize that God provides for them and that He can provide healing, not merely momentary distraction.
If a person loves or trusts in anything more than God, that thing is an idol, and the person has believed a lie. Let’s expose idols for the falsehoods they are, and let’s rely on God.
Prayer Suggestion: God, help me to trust in You alone.
Quicklook: Isaiah 44:12–20
