This Sunday, Pastor Wayne will preach on the Parts that must be crucified. His sermon is based on Ephesians 2:20-21. Paul says that he has been crucified with Christ. He died, and now Christ lives in him; we are not nailed to the cross as Jesus was, but we are to die spiritually as we come to a relationship with Jesus: 1. our feet; 2. our hands; and 3. our hearts.

LPC will start an Instituto class on Zoom on Mondays, beginning October 19. The topic will be “Church History from the Apostles to the Pre-Reformation.” If you are interested, please message the church on Facebook. More information soon.

Pastor John Linton will continue with study from the book of Ephesians. No doubt another powerful message by John from the scriptures. Be prepared to be challenged, comforted,  and encouraged. Join us; you will be so glad you did,

We are all familiar with First Responders. They are the ones who rescue those in imminent danger. They do what we cannot do for ourselves. The power of sin is our greatest danger and makes us dead men and women walking with no way to save ourselves. We cannot rescue ourselves from the most fearsome danger we face in this life. We are powerless, but God is able to rescue us from the slavery of sin and make us alive together with Christ.

Anything that is master over us, we are a slave to: pride, anger, bitterness, hatred, unforgiveness, lust, selfishness, slander, addictions, and nameless others, all which makes us a slave to these sins.

Last Sunday Pastor John Linton gave several excellent examples from scripture of our Conquering Christ who triumphs over all competing powers of this evil age in our study of Ephesians. Jesus is now seated at the right hand of power. 

God alone through faith in Jesus Christ can save us. He is our Divine Warrior. This First Divine Responder is the one we can depend on for our eternal destiny.

Abundant Life Church

A covenant of love is a promised based on a firm decision to love.  Love as an emotion is nice and we all enjoy it but this kind of a promise is not based on a feeling but rather something else entirely. This kind of love is not dependent on a feeling but on a covenant between two people. A man and woman form this type of covenant when they decide to marry and as long as they both live, honoring the promise the other has made the same.  This type of covenant is similar to the promise we share with God. He makes a love promise with us as we serve Him with all our heart. Come this Sunday, Oct, 11, as we go to the scriptures to discover how we often limit the way God can love us because of our own wondering heart.  

The service is limited to 50 people, so be one of the first to arrive. Those who cannot be with us in person will enjoy our services both on our Facebook page as well as our YouTube channel and at abundantlifec-hapala.com.

Abundant Life Church is affiliated with the Assemblies of God of Mexico. English Bible study is Wednesdays at 3 p.m. Spanish-language services are Sundays, noon, and Spanish-language Bible study is Friday, 6:45 p.m. Abundant Life Church, Carretera Chapala-Joco 140, San Antonio Tlayacapan.
