About our Pastor

But by the grace of God I am what I am: and his grace which was bestowed upon me was not in vain; but I laboured more abundantly than they all: yet not I, but the grace of God which was with me.

1 Corinthians 15:10  King James Version (KJV)

Abundant Grace Community Chruch was founded in 2015 by Pastor Christopher Bland and his wife, Stacey Bland as a community church where everyone could feel welcome, and learn why we are to praise the Lord with gladness. This church was originated on a focus towards relationship with God over just religion.

God is using Pastor Bland and the congregation in Fayetteville for His glory, but the road starting out was not easy or straight.  Even before being ordained in 2013 it was clear that the Lord had a plan for him that uses his testimony and the testament of Jesus Christ to reach the broken hearted. The vision of relationship over religion is tied to the continuing work of the Lord in this man of God - still shaping, guiding, correcting, and protecting.  This is his heart towards the people, and just a sampling of God's heart evidenced in His son Jesus!  Amen.

We are under the provision and leadership of the Emmanuel Churches of Christ headed by Bishop Ronnie Banks.


Our purpose…
To glorify God as we celebrate and communicate our love
relationship with Him through Jesus Christ.

Pastor Chris Bland
