Abundant Life Church was founded in 1982 by Pastor Herb and Sis. Gladys Beasley, along with 6 other families. They met in a home for several months, growing slowly. They then rented the storefront area of the old Inez Hotel in downtown Brookhaven.
In March of 1986, the church moved to the present facility, which was purchased and completely renovated. Pastor Herb opened his doors to every race of people from every walk of life. This decision to do so, was not a popular one, and he encountered some persecution. Pastor Herb,affectionally known as "Bro Herb" affected the lives of many, many people and continues to do so today.
On March 19, 2006, Pastor Herb turned all pastoral responsibilities over to Pastor Ronnie D. Henderson Sr. Since that time, Abundant Life Church has been aggressively discipling believers and reaching the lost. ALC is a Word of Faith ministry operating under the Spirit of Excellence, that ministers to the whole man, spirit, soul and body.
"The Mission of Abundant Life Church is to present the Gospel of the Lord Jesus Christ to the lost through every available means, and to disciple believers unto full maturity in Christ."
