Abundant Grace Church
“Building Families, Strengthening Lives”

              Everyone is welcome at Abundant Grace Church, we are a church that cares about you. We even have a special section of the parking lot designated for guests so that you get a good spot close to the entrance and can get right in to meet us. Once inside you will find a relaxed and friendly atmosphere.

What you will find here is: – messages that are relevant to your daily life – people from every stage and walk of life – worship that is vibrant and expressive – prayer that is personal and passionate – dozens of ways to connect and reach out – that you matter to God and to us! The Vision: Write the vision and make it plane on tablets.  That he may run who reads it.  For the vision is yet for an appointed time.  But in the end it will speak and it will not lie.  Though it tarries wait for it; because it will surely come, it will not tarry. Habakkuk 2:2-3 (NKJV)

In 1983 while attending Rhema Bible Training Center Carol and I were impressed by the Holy Spirit to return to
Toms River and pioneer a church that would:
1. Teach and preach the uncompromised Word of God to all ages in Church services, teaching seminars, Bible School, Sunday School and from house to house.
2. Build strong, growing believers by teaching them to live a lifestyle of faith in God’s Word, to worship God in Spirit and in Truth, and to equip those believers to be ministers of God’s love and then to take that love along with hope, help, and healing to a lost, hurt and dying world.

 3.  Be a beacon and outreach to our community by building a youth & family life center, in order to minister spiritually, mentally, and physically to children, youth, young adults, singles, families and seniors in our community.

4.   Send men and women out to spread the Good News of God’s love and help them establish churches in the United States and around the world.

How Should I Dress?
No need to feel like you have to dress up. Modest apparel works for most.
What Is The Music Like?
Our contemporary praise and worship ushers everyone into the Lord’s presence where freedom of expressed adoration is experienced.
Who Attends?
We actually have a wide variety of every age group. The core of our church is families with kids and teenagers. We also have singles, young married, and “empty-nesters.” And we have people of various nationalities.
What Are The Messages Like?
Every Sunday our goal is to share practical life lessons from The Word of God that we can apply to our lives every day of the week. The sermons are approximately 45 minutes in length and are dynamic in content and powerful. Pastor Anthony is a wonderful teacher and he keeps it simple, so that you receive maximum understanding.
What If I Don’t Fit The Church Mold?
Awesome! We are not looking for “religious people” from other churches. We desire to reach out to our community and impact individuals that don’t usually go to church. Our church is filled with normal people just like you that face the same real life challenges.
How Big Is Your Vision For Church Growth?
Our goal is to continually reach out to our community and share the love of Jesus Christ. We believe we will always be growing. There is no designated number at which we will pull the shades, lock the doors, and become a Christian club house. Our desire is to faithfully serve and minister to all that God sends to us this week, next week and in the years to come no matter race or the color of your skin.
What About My Baby?
When you walk into our lobby our greeters will direct you to our fully equipped nursery which is located just down the hallway from the sanctuary. You are more than welcome to keep your baby with you in service or in our nursery.
What About My Children?
We value the opportunity for families to worship together. You can choose to have your children join you during “Praise & Worship,” or have them participate with our children’s church “Praise & Worship Team.” Your child will be ministered the Word of God and have lots of fun watching videos, playing games, crafts, and enjoying snacks and drinks. Please advise your child’s teacher of any allergies that they should be aware of. Your child’s overall well-being is our ultimate goal.
Who Will Be Working With My Children?
We carefully screen and do background checks on all volunteers that work with the children and teen ministries. We have an incredible team of loving, caring, and committed individuals to take care of your kids so you can have peace of mind.
What About Youth Services?
