Abundant Life Church supports missionaires around the world and

To do so, please make your check out to Abundant Life Church and write in the note section "Missions." If you want to specify a particular missionary, project number, or region, please note that as well. Examples of the COG World Missions project
can be found at www.cogwm.org .



Jullie Martinez is one of our World Missions missionairies in Cambodia (above).



Here are a few excerpts from this website at www.cogwm.org :

Church of God World Missions seeks to fulfill the Great Commission of our Lord Jesus Christ to "Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit,..." (Matthew 28:19). Robert H. Glover defines Christian missions as "the proclamation of the Gospel to the unconverted everywhere according to the command of Christ."

 

 

 

 

 

The Scriptural purpose of the involvement of the Church of God in missions is:

 

 

 

 

 

To fulfill the Great Commission of Christ (Matt. 28:19-20, Mark 16:15, Luke 24:17, John 20:21).

 

 

 

 

 

To share Christ's love for the world (Luke 10:2, Matt 9:36-38, Matt. 18:10-14).

 

 

 

 

 

To minister to the totality of human need (Matt. 25:31-46, Luke 16:9, Luke 16:19-31, Luke 10:2).

 

 

 

 

 

To bring men & women to knowledge of God & to His redeeming grace(John 3:16, Rom. 10:13-15)15)

 

 

 

 

 

To obey Christ by confessing Him to the world (Matt. 10:32-33, Matt. 25:41-46).

 

 

 

 

 

Our purpose is to help (1) unchurched or nominal Christians to become committed disciples of Christ, and (2) non-Christian people to become Christians. For this reason we send missionaries to preach the Gospel of Christ, to train national leaders, to proclaim the Gospel to their own people and to other nations, to help relieve people who are suffering, and to develop mature disciples for the Kingdom of God.

"A Place of Hope and Healing"

One time donations of any size as well as ongoing financial support are

You are able to sponsor a child for as little as $20 a month. The funds are for the support of the child while they are on the campus. It enables the home to provide clothes, personal items, special recreation and entertainment activities, extracurricular activities and houseparent support. Each sponsor will be assigned a child and become a monthly sponsor for this child. You will given a

And, it is a place of security that allows them to dream of a life so much different from their past it could only be considered a miracle. From The Home many have launched forward to have healthy families and successful careers in many areas that continue to contribute in
a positive way to our society.
