Enduring Truth Ministries


Enduring Truth Ministries founder Paul Earl Sheppard has been senior pastor of Abundant Life Christian Fellowship in Mountain View, California, since 1989. Under Paul’s visionary leadership, this church has become one of the most unique congregations in northern California, developing from a small African American church of 34 members into a thriving multi-racial fellowship of more than 6,000 followers of Christ.

A native of Philadelphia, Paul has studied at the University of Pennsylvania, the Center for Urban Theological Studies, and the Southern California School of Ministry. He holds a Master’s degree in Ministry and a Doctorate of Divinity.

Paul is a board member of NRB (National Religious Broadcasters Association) and has served as a speaker for major Christian conferences across the country including those sponsored by Promise Keepers, Family Life, Hawaiian Island Ministries, and many other organizations.

Paul is also an author whose newest book entitled Build A Bridge And Get Over It! is scheduled for release by Spring 2009 through Xulon Press. This book deals with improving relationships and walking in unity despite denominational, cultural, and personality differences among members of the body of Christ.

Abundant Life Christian Fellowship is a unique community and a special place to worship. A church that is centered on the shared identity in Jesus Christ and this reality is lived out in the culturally, generationally, and socio-economically diverse congregation.

The church is committed to dynamic, practical, and Bible-based teaching. They are deeply involved in serving their local community, and their fellowship extends to hundreds of small groups which meet for connection and spiritual growth in homes all over the Bay Area.

Message from Pastor Wayne L. Jackson of ALCF.

It is with great sadness that we announced this past weekend (December 19-20) the resignation of Pastor Paul Sheppard from our church. Pastor Paul had been the Senior Pastor of Abundant Life for the past 20 years, and his ministry touched countless lives. We honor God for Pastor Paul’s service and the good fruit borne of his ministry, even as we regret the circumstances of his resignation. Please join us in keeping Pastor Paul, Sister Meredith, and their family in prayer.

Missing The Truth NEW
by: S. FieldsAnonymous

Dear Pastor Paul Sheppard:

I miss hearing the truth of God's word coming from your ministry. Please don't give up...we all make mistakes in life, that's why God gives us another chance. Where are you...where have you gone? Please embrace us again with your loving, kind, God-giving spirit, and comical demeanor. You always brought a smile on my face and joy in my heart knowing that you are a true man of God. We need more people in the world like you. Please come back to us.

With much love always, God bless you!

In Prayer
by: Linda J.

I enjoyed the teachings of Pastor Paul E. Sheppard. I don't know the circumstances behind his announced failures. However; I know that he has asked for God forgiveness, then he has been forgiven. It takes alot to stand before the whole world, and proclaim that that you have sinned. I beleive this process will make him a better person spiritually if he continues to have a strong spiritual connection with God. I am awaiting to hear future sermons from this great Pastor. He and his family will continue to be in my prayers.
