I welcome you to the corporate website of the St. Augustine's Anglican Church, Abonnema, the premier Church of the Kalabari people. Like the rest of the Church in the Diocese of the Niger Delta, St Augustine's Abonnema is spiritually dynamic, united, disciplined and self supporting. It is committed to pragmatic evangelism, social welfare and epitomizes the genuine love of Christ.


This site provides you with information on the activities of the Church and also includes a daily devotional, which will lead all (Anglican and non Anglicans) alike on the path to heaven. Our focus is on the total being and it shall be spiritually, theologically, and doctrinally sound against the backdrop of heresies in the Christian world.


I pray that as you go through our pages and commit your life to the service of our Lord Jesus Christ, the almighty God will shower His blessings on you.

“KEEP FAITH TO THE END”
“. . . If that which ye have heard from the beginning shall remain in you, ye also shall continue in the Son and in the Father” (1John 2:24b)

More often than not people had embarked on journeys and forgot their preliminary activities at the boarding park or airport. Sometimes even the prayers offered and they echoed the ‘Amen’ are  forgotten just few kilometers from the take off point. Some started as Christians but ended the journey as infidels.

Our beloved Elder John in the text for our meditation this week, urges us to keep what we heard from the beginning of our Christian race. He urges us to remember the preliminaries of our journey which are the foundation, bedrock or benchmark of our faith. “So then faith cometh by hearing and hearing by the Word of God” (Romans 10:17).

Listen again to what John says, “If that which ye have heard from the beginning shall remain in you, ye also shall continue in the Son, and in the Father”. In other words, our continuing in Jesus Christ and His Father depends on our keeping faith with what we hear to the end - i.e. - what we have heard, believed and practiced from the beginning.

Beloved, as we continue our forty days wilderness journey with Jesus Christ, we are being reminded to remain steadfast and focused to the end. We should not allow our neighbours or circumstances to draw us back or weigh us down. For, to be drawn back or weighed down is to DISCONTINUE WITH JESUS CHRIST and be DISCONNECTED FROM DIVINE COMMONWEALTH.

Keep faith and stay connected.
