What is worship like at AHBC?
I am so glad you found us online. If you're new to the Camden County area, let us be one of the first to welcome you. This is a beautiful area of the country we live in on the Atlantic coast.
Friendly... Family... Fresh... Fun... those are just some of the words we hear from our guests as they describe their first Abundant Harvest Baptist Church experience. We hope you'll give us a try and find that to be true! We know your time is precious and we know trying out different churches is stressful. So, our promise to you when you try out Abundant Harvest Baptist is an experience without all the stress and anxiety.
While our purpose is "To know Christ and to make Him known as we grow together and serve others." our vision is unique. Our vision is to "Change the way you think about church!" If you've gone to church in the past, you may find some things to be different at Abundant Harvest Baptist . But different in a good way. From casual dress to blended music to practical teaching you can apply to your everyday life, we believe church should be a place you actually enjoy coming to.At Abundant Harvest Baptist Church we believe that worship is our authentic and unceasing response to God's presence. Worship requires us to offer all we are as living sacrifices to God, revealed in Jesus Christ.
We are very simplistic in our worship.
There is no strict dress code to attend any service. On Sunday, some men wear a suit and tie while others come casual wearing jeans & a shirt. No matter what is worn, it is our desire to honor the Lord in modest attire.
At 11:00A.M., each Sunday morning, our congregation comes together to live these words out. In practical terms, here's what that means.
The service atmosphere is small, informal and inviting. You will find your heart being touched; your spirit being refreshed; and your life taking on new meaning and purpose. We believe this service will help you experience deeper intimacy with God.
During our songs, we listen to a blend of traditional and contemporary music. We like to clap and even tap our toes. You will even find some close their eyes and soak each word, lyric and beat into our hearts. You will find others with an “Amen” on their lips. It’s widely understood that Baptist’s love our music.
Our offering time is an extension of our worship. As a guest, you are welcome to worship through giving, but please do not feel obligated.
We consider the preaching of the Word of God to be the best and the most important time of the service. I Corinthians 1:21 reads, "...For after that in the wisdom of God the world by wisdom knew not God, it pleased God by the foolishness of preaching to save them that believe.."
We believe that the best help you can get in any struggle of life is from the Bible and that preaching is that help.
At the end of the preaching, the pastor will ask everyone to stand & will give an invitation. This is a time for many to respond and make a life changing decision by walking down the aisle & praying with the pastor or one of our spiritual counselors. A decision may be to trust Jesus Christ as personal Savior or to become a more devoted Christian.
Whatever your decision may be, you are invited to join others during the invitation time. If you would like someone to pray for you or would like to make your decision public, members of the church will be available to pray with you.
