PASTORS ADAM & RACHEL GATES
Rachel and I would like to welcome you to the Abundant Life Church website. If someone has invited you to visit or you arrived here on your own, we pray you’ll be blessed. Below
is a little about us!
On a mission's trip to Ukraine, Rachel and I met and fell in love! We got married two months later and moved to Broken Arrow, OK where we attended, and in 2005 graduated from, Rhema Bible Training Center. We felt it was God's plan to move back to Murphy and help Rachel's parents at their church as Associate Pastors. In 2006 her father, and Pastor, unexpectedly passed away. By God's divine hand, she and I were asked to step into the Senior Pastor position of Abundant Life Church and have continued to do God's work in Murphy, NC ever since! We both daily endeavor to seek God's will for our lives and our 2 children, and Abundant Life Church. Rachel and I have seen a lot of change, growth, and victories in every aspect of our ministry over the years! Through this, we have embraced the honor and duty to teach those around us about the spiritual growth of a born-again Believer AND how to address the practical issues of life and ministry with the true, unadulterated Word of God. God has called us to rise up as bold ministers of the Gospel of Jesus Christ, to proclaim the works of the Lord with a righteous indignation, and to create true disciples of Jesus Christ! We so enjoy residing in Murphy, and pray that God will lead you and direct your steps to fulfill His purpose for your life!
On this site you’ll find information about our church. We'd love it if you would visit us at one of our church services at 315 Family Church Road, Murphy, North Carolina (in the Peachtree Community, right across from Tri-County Community College).

whatever your spiritual needs may be, we’re here for you! If you have any questions or prayer needs please contact our office at 828-837-7815.
