Our dream is... ... to serve as a connection point to help people grow their relationships with their faith, family, and friends. This will be accomplished by providing connection in these areas through worship, evangelism, discipleship, fellowship, and service. ... to be a place where the hurting can find hope. Where the lonely can find love. Where the broken can be restored. Where the fallen can be forgiven. ... to be a place where the whole Gospel is shared with the hundreds of thousands in the Metrolina region. ... to grow Abundant Life Church - Matthews to a membership of over 500. ... to plant one new Abundant Life Church in the Metrolina area each year to evangelize this region, including works among many language groups, eventually bringing the membership of Abundant Life Church into the thousands. ... to equip every believer for the work of the ministry by helping them discover their unique gifts and talents, then empowering them to use those gifts and talents to their fullest potential for the building up of the kingdom of God. ... to become a church that is not just blessed, but becomes a blessing by sending out men and money to fulfill the Great Commission. ... to develop the current campus to include new sanctuary, classrooms, office complex, and sports facility to minister to the body of Christ and as a connect point for those who desire to discover Him. ... to be a place where we can all come to "the unity of the faith, and of the knowledge of the Son of God, unto a perfect man, unto the measure of the stature of the fullness of Christ:" ... to develop a staff of people who can help us fulfill this dream!
