"I came that you may have life and life abundantly”
"ខ្ញុំមក ដើម្បីឲ្យមនុស្សលោកមានជីវិត ហើយឲ្យគេមានជីវិតពេញបរិបូណ៌"
Abundant Life Church of Christ is a Cambodian Christian Community Church established in late October 2020 during the COVID19 Pandemic. Abundant Life Church of Christ is a newly planted Cambodian church founded by pastor Tola Ten and Sopheap Chhay while attending Springvale South Church of Christ. In October 2020, Tola believed that God has called him to plant a separate Cambodian church with its own church culture and identity as a Cambodian ministry, with the leaders at Springvale South releasing pastor Tola to fulfil this calling. In May 2021, Abundant life Church of Christ was welcomed as a new affiliate at the annual Summit of Churches of Christ Victoria/Tasmania. In January 2021, the church began its first official indoor gathering for worship in Springvale at the Anglican Church of the Ascension Springvale.
The vision and mission of Abundant Life Church of Christ are to be a Bible believing Cambodian community church that upholds the Scriptures as the final authority over the Christian life and practice, directed and guided by the Holy Spirit who enables and empowers believers to live their lives in complete submission and obedience to the Lordship of Jesus who is the head of the Church. Abundant Life Church of Christ seeks to be relevant and missional in the community bringing compassion and hope to the Cambodian Community.
Abundant Life Church of Christ is to be led by pastor/s and elder/s who have been appointed and governed by the church board to lead, minister, nurture, teach and shepherd the flock of God in its unique cultural context; in its expression of worship of God; the study of Scripture; empowered to communal life that reflects
Christ-like character; and obedience as modelled by the early apostolic Church in Acts 2:42.
Every Sunday, the Church will faithfully meet for corporate worship, for prayer, the breaking of bread, the faithful giving of financial resources in tithes and offering, the study of God's Word through expository and topical preaching, to fellowship that seeks to Honor the Lord Jesus Christ and in serving one another in love as Christ has commanded. Our weekly small group programs are structured to meet individuals' needs to develop for discipleship, fellowship, ministry, worship, and evangelism.
