Can I attend your church Saturday and a different one on Sunday?

Certainly.  We encourage people to worship God and to learn about Him as much as they can.

I have tattoos and piercings.  Can I attend your church?

Certainly.  God is not interested in what’s on the outside of you.  It’s what is inside that matters.  He wants you and your heart (for more information, please click here) .

I drink alcohol (and / or use drugs).  Can I attend your church?

Certainly.  It is true that God’s Word (the Bible) teaches against drunkenness (Galatians 5:21)On the other hand, we as Christians are to refrain from anything that would hinder our ability to serve God.  Most often, we would not know that you drink / drug unless you (or someone who knows you) were to tell us.  But we would never remove someone from our church due to an alcohol or drug problem.

When people truly accept Jesus as their Lord and Savior, they naturally start removing things from their lives that hinder their loving and serving Him.

You will find that we are loving people, and if you have a problem with alcohol / drugs and would like help, we will be here for you.

I have a bad past.  Can I attend your church?

We have all sinned and fallen short of the glory of God (Romans 3:23).  We all have things in our past that we are not proud of (or maybe even very ashamed).  When we repent of our sins and accept Jesus as Lord and Savior, our sins are blotted out (Isaiah 43:25).  That means when we stand before God at the time of our earthly death, it’s as if those sins had never occurred.  What a gift of mercy and grace!  So if God does not hold your past against you if you are a Christian, who are we to?  We do not get together to judge and condemn (who are we to do that, anyway).  We gather to love each other and God.

I am a Roman Catholic.  Can I attend your church?

Certainly.  We welcome people of all denominations as well as folks of other faiths (including and especially atheists)!

I have no money to donate to the church.  Can I attend your church?

Absolutely.  Our worship services are not like attending a show with an entry fee.  We do NOT pass around an offering plate, so you will not be embarrassed or made to feel guilty about not contributing financially.

God wants you and your heart.  He wants you to love Him.

Abundant Grace Bible Chapel is a not-for-profit organization registered with the IRS as a 501(c)(3) public charity.  Contributions to our church are tax-deductible.

I’m shy.  Do I have to participate in activities?

While we welcome and encourage everyone to attend and participate, we have a relaxed, non-pushy atmosphere.  We understand that sometimes people who are shy are even uncomfortable with saying that they are uncomfortable!  Participate as much as you feel comfortable.
