NEW TO JESUS AND THE BIBLE?

If you are new to Jesus and the Bible and wish to learn more about God’s plan for you, please contact us or visit us. We would be honored to partner with you in your journey.

Call or text at 503 852 1701

Please leave a name, number, and reason for your message and you will be contacted as soon as possible.

In the meantime, we recommend following these easy steps:

  1. Pray that if God is real, he will show you by opening your heart and mind to whatever he has to show you.
  2. Read an easy to understand translation of the book of John from the Bible.
    1. You can easily read most translations in app form by downloading the Bible app for iPhone or Android.
    2. We have also found biblegateway’s clean interface and many translations to be of great help to us.
    3. Read in a translation that is easy to understand. For a plain language easier translation, we recommend you try the NLT. We use this version in our church for its ease of language. Below is a chart showing which versions are easiest to follow.

3. Visit a local, Bible-believing church and tell the pastor about your journey and your needs.

  1. Most churches maintain a website where you can learn a lot about them. A quick google search can yield fast results.
  2. View their sermons online to see if their style might resonate with your learning needs.
  3. If you want assistance in finding a Bible-believing church, we can help. Please fill out the church placement survey and we will see what churches near you will fit your individual needs.

We will contact you to share your journey and check-in on your progress


 

I WANT TO LEARN MORE ABOUT MY FAITH

At ABF, our heart is to educate the masses. We specifically feel called to the sincere believers in Christ in the local churches who have become disenfranchised from their local bodies, from the Scriptures, and from doctrine. Our resources are crafted to reground these Satellites to the gravity of God’s revelation and truth. To this end, we have developed several surveys meant to better inform us how to accomplish this task. Please take the time to fill out the appropriate survey below and (if asked for) someone will contact you shortly with ways that we can partner in your journey toward God.

I WANT TO LEARN ABOUT MY FAITH

Education Survey: This survey will help us to understand where people are at educationally, where they want to be, and how they digest information.

I WANT TO FIND A CHURCH HOME

Church Placement Survey: This survey will help us to understand what an individual might be looking for in their church experience. We realize that God makes different churches just as he makes different parts. Not every church fits every person. It is a primary goal of ours to find that right fit by connecting you to the right church. The more vulnerable you are with us, the better we can understand how to place you in a church that you resonate with.
