Welcome to Agape Bible Church.
We are a family of believers who seek to love and honor Jesus Christ in all we do. Our hope is that you too will find our family to be a community where you can believe, belong, and be a part of.
Covid-19 UPDATE – June 2020
We are now open for Sunday morning service ! YAAAA! 9:30 a.m.
We will be meeting in the parking lot for the entire service – please bring an umbrella or a pop-up canopy as it could get hot! We would love for you to join us on Sunday morning, but PLEASE – stay home if you are not feeling well. It is important for us to look out for others in our congregation and in our community. Service will be streamed live on facebook for those who cannot attend.
ABC Response to COVID-19
Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death,
I will fear no evil;
For You are with me;
Your rod and Your staff, they comfort me. – Psalm 23:4
As believers in Jesus Christ and in Almighty God, we should imitate the Psalmist and not fear evil in this world. Coronavirus is an evil and must be prayed against and responded to wisely. There are many unknowns, but what we do know is that COVID-19 is a symptom of our fallen world and cursed world. As sons and daughters of God our first duty is spiritual. All of us who know and love Jesus Christ should be taking this opportunity to draw near to our heavenly Father, praying daily against this evil, for each other, for a cure, and for our country and beyond.
While we fear God above the coronavirus, we do respect the facts of life in this fallen world and want to make intelligent and informed decisions.
As your shepherds, we are taking steps to continue to ensure the safety of our Agape Family. Mendocino County presently has a shelter order in place. If you have needs that cannot be met at our local stores or facilities, please call or email the church office. Pastor Paul will be there most days. If you are going to the store, or to Ukiah for anything, and have time to gather supplies for others, please let us know so that we can minimize our footprint as a church family.
Until further notice, we will not be having church services. Home church is advised to all. Please set aside some specific time for prayer, worship, and reading of the Word. Pastor Paul will continue to preach sermons and post them at the Agape Bible Church Facebook page. He is also writing special devotional pieces to be posted there. Also, in addition to mailing your offerings to the church, we are working on other ways to receive your tithes and offerings.
Here are some safety practices that will help us to all stay healthy:
1. Wash hands often with soap and water and use alcohol-based hand sanitizer.
2. Stay home if sick, have a fever, or a cough.
3. Avoid touching face, eyes, nose, and mouth with unwashed hands.
4. Cover coughs or sneezes with a tissue/elbow.
5. Clean and disinfect frequently touched objects, like your phone, water bottle, and keys.
6. Get plenty of sleep and eat healthy to support your immune system.
The LORD also will be a refuge for the oppressed, A refuge in times of trouble. And those who know Your name will put their trust in You; For You, LORD, have not forsaken those who seek You. – Psalm 9:9-10
In His Love,
