I'm currently an ALBI student attending Pastor Matt Jones's class on Mondays. The class has been such a blessing for both my husband, Paul, and I. Thank you and Abundant Life for offering such informative and inspiring courses. Both my husband and I are looking forward to registering in more future classes.
Through a Holy Spirit charged classroom environment, and knowledgeable teaching of the Holy Bible, I learn to pray more effectively. As I correct and understand proper communication with the Father, I can make a better connection to the source of "all things good". The "Prayer Secrets" instruction, materials and activities are a great help in changing me. Classmates may laugh when I say "I REALLY love" that secret cleansing formula but "yes" I believe I should use this daily (lol). "Thank you" to the distinguished staff. ALBI is preparing me to bear more fruit for God's kingdom. (St.John 15:1-8)

A.L.B.I. has been an answered prayer. I prayed before I
moved to New Jersey, in 2003 and started attending A.B.W.C. and my prayer
was, that God would bless me with a Bible College that I could attend and
continue to grow in the Lord. It has been truly a blessing attending the
Bible College, I have grown a lot since I started, and I have learned so
many new and wonderful things. I am thankful that I am surrounded by other
Christians that have desires and struggles just like I have, and that lets
me know that I am not alone in my walk, but we are striving to be the best
that God wants us to be. The teaching at ALBI is outstanding and I am so
thankful to God for blessing me with God fearing, Christian teachers who
love the Lord and is filled with his Spirit to impart such wonderful
teachings about the Lord, and how we should be follows of Christ in all that
ALBI is truly a place of learning and I have been telling others about the wonderful atmosphere, and teaching at the school. My hope is to lead more students to the school who is thirsty and hungry for the knowledge of God, because the word of God is definitely taught there. My prayer is that God will continually pour out his Spirit upon the Teachers and Students who attend the Bible College and that we will all grow in the knowledge of him. I can't put into words how I have been blessed by the teaching at ALBI my life isn't the same neither will it ever be again. I am on my way to doing great and mighty things for the Lord, and he has me at ALBI to be taught the truth about the Spirit of the true and living God, not some watered down version, but the truth that we serve a living God. And as followers of Jesus Christ we are alive too. And in Jesus name greater works will we do. Amen!
Your sermon on 2kings 2;13,14 about the Mantle of God was such a blessing.
Thank you. Once I committed my whole self to God and have the courage to say
" Here I am Lord, use me as thy vessel according toYour will " , God has
shown me many things especially leading me to ALBI. Pastor Joe in his class
"Holy Spirit and You" is truly eye opening
spiritually. I know God has a plan for me as He continues to direct my life
through Pastor Joe's class , I am more sensitive to indwelling of Holy
Spirit in my life and with the help of Holy Spirit, He will lead me to bear
the fruits of the Holy Spirit and not submitting myself to live the old
nature. I am looking forward to taking more classes in the fall .
It has been a pleasure being a member of ALBI. I have been learning of the
importance in striving for a deeper, more sacred relationship with God. I
realize the importance of influencing one person by planting that seed which
may not take root immediately but giving persistent care and love one day
will transform into the most beautiful creature, “a child of God.”
Where I work, I have tried to be a beacon of light in the darkness, and influence my fellow co-workers in the way of the Lord, for a while now. However, because of Abundant Life of Whippany and a more intimate atmosphere called ALBI, I have learned how to put myself in position to be used by God and become a better advocate for Him. I share everything that I learn in class and at Church services and allow others to see the Grace of God in me. I have had the opportunity through the love of Christ to see not just one but two of my fellow co-workers give their lives to the Lord on Easter Sunday. I have been encouraging them to attend Church and with one particular young woman I pick her up every Sunday and we attend services together.
My hope is that for every person that God has orchestrated us to influence, they will go out and do the same for someone else, so that our world will be transformed for Christ one person at a time until there are no fields left to harvest. I know that given the opportunity, to be educated about the love of our awe inspiring God, and the importance of missionaries, we will be unstoppable.
This is why Abundant Life Bible Institute is so indispensable; it is a requirement in the equipping of “little Jesus'” everywhere in the world so that as affective soul winners we will transform our world.
To soar like an eagle, one must learn to fly as an eagle. We cannot do this
when we are satisfied to with the wells of salvation instead of the rivers
of living water. What Abundant Life Bible Institute has done for me,
personally, is to give me eagle’s desire to see with eyes of understanding
into the deep secrets of God, which are stored in heavenly places, as we
spend time personally communing with the God and having Him share His
treasures. I believe this experience has allowed me to go into God’s
treasure house and take hold of God in a very real way through personal
breaking, building and belief that El Roi (the God who Sees) has seen
something in me that He desires to birth for the sake of His kingdom.
When you come together, class after class, with other seekers and pursuers of God, you cannot help but be built up into a spiritual treasure house. Once our houses are furnished according to His pattern and ultimate plan, we will come forth to assist in the further building up of the Body of Christ and to go out and reach the lost so that they might desire, too, to “see” what they have not “seen” before—that men walking on the streets all around us are more than trees. The fruits of the anointed teaching will be that we will share this anointing with all of whom we come into contact and spark them towards a greater desire and passion for God and to be the co laborers for this end time harvest.

ALBI has been such a tremendous blessing to me! The classes cover topics
that are instant in application... they are life-impacting. I am currently
taking Prayer Secrets and The Holy
Spirit & You. They tie together perfectly . The classes are
interactive and the instructors teach at my level. Most often without even
asking, I am receiving answers to questions that I could never ask during a
Sunday morning service. My prayer life has become more meaningful, my
relationship with God more intimate and my understanding of the scriptures
has greatly expanded. I am so thankful that Pastor Joe never let go of his
vision for this school!!!!

I would like to say a big, heartfelt thank you to you, Pastor
Arminio and the rest of the ALBI/ALWC staff who have brought
the vision of a ministry training center to fruition. Though only two
semesters and two classes in, I have already received invaluable knowledge,
imparted by truly great men in the Lord. My spiritual and biblical
foundation has become deeper and stronger as a result of ALBI and this has
been a blessing to not only me, but to my wife, children, neighbors and
others in my life. I anxiously await each new semester and am excited about
all of the future course offerings. Thank you for your dedication,
perseverance and service to the Lord.
I’ve been to many churches over the years and never heard the teaching like
I have at ALBI. It is truly revolutionary. I have put feet to my faith. I
rely believe that what I believe is rely real. I live for God like I’ve
never lived before. God has come alive to me in such away that I know that I
know I am in Gods will for my life. Thank you ALBI !
Although the teaching and preaching at my church is excellent, for many
years I have been longing to get into a serious study of God’s Word. The
kinds of materials available in Christian bookstores have never filled this
need. ALBI is providing Biblical instruction that not only is meeting this
need, but God is using it to transform my heart and mind. I am presently in
my second course, “Prayer Secrets”. I have been a
Christian over 35 years, but have never had any meaningful teaching about
prayer. I am now learning how to have a closer relationship with God, am
learning different kinds of prayer, and how to apply the faith God has given
me in prayer! Prayer is no longer a chore, but a wonderful time in the
Lord’s presence, and I am participating in bringing His will and His kingdom
to fulfillment! The first course was, “Understanding the
Theology of the Call of God”. I have known for years that God
has a call on my life, but did not know to what end. Through that course I
found I am just where the Lord wants me, serving Him in my family and church
as a servant, helping my Pastor fulfill the vision God has given him for our
church and its various ministries. I now know that by faithfully serving in
this capacity, and by being an armor-bearer to my Pastor and the entire
pastoral staff, God is working in my life to bring me into the destiny He
has prepared for me!, and will direct me as I continue to serve Him.
