WHO ARE WE?
ABOUT ABINGDON BIBLE CHURCH
It might seem obvious, but it is worth stating that Abingdon Bible Church is first and foremost a church--not a club, not a political entity, not a cultural tradition, but what the New Testament describes as a church. That means we are a family. We are committed and connected to each other like parts of a body. And we have been bought by Jesus Christ and are preparing to meet Him soon.
"As the Holy Spirit uses the Word to draw a church together and make it more like Jesus, he also makes us effective as an embassy of the High King—both to model to a rebellious world what life ought to be like, and also (and even through that life) to proclaim the good news of King Jesus’s offer of mercy to that world.
The fact is, the church is not a social club or a cruise ship to heaven. It’s a military unit, and one under constant assault from the enemy. So the author of Hebrews says we should not “neglect to meet together,” but rather “stir up one another to love and good works” and “encourage one another” (Heb. 10:24–25). Similarly, Paul tells us part of what we do as a church is keep watch over each other, restore each other when we fall into sin, and bear each other’s burdens and sorrows (Gal. 6:1–2). We pray for one another, confess to one another, watch out for one another, and encourage one another to press on—and all because we know that one day soon our King is coming back to take us home (James 5:16; Heb. 10:25)." ~ Greg Gilbert
We are not perfect, but this is who we strive to be as a congregation - a Bible-saturated, grace-chanelling church.
