Living Word Church is made up of people from all walks of life who face the same challenges as you. In Luke 6:47-49, Jesus tells us how to prepare for the challenges of life by coming to him, hearing his words and then doing them. That's what we are focused on, here is how we see it, and we invite you to join us.


COME  Coming to Jesus in prayer, worship, listening and God's Word is what we love to do. Sometimes the first step in coming to Jesus is hanging out with others who follow Jesus. We love that too! It's all about relationships.


HEAR  Hearing the Words of Jesus is about intentionally listening to all Jesus says in His Word and from His Spirit. We hear from Jesus in our personal devotions, in connect-groups of a few people, and all together in large gatherings.  


DO  Doing the words of Jesus is both challenging and rewarding. Jesus says we are to love our neighbors, serve humbly, give generously, use our gifts for the common good. He also says - have faith, forgive, make peace, and encourage others. As we do the words of Jesus we love one for another, show kindness to our community, start new churches in our region and support ministry around the globe.

Statement of Faith


The Scriptures are true, authoritative, and sufficient. The Word of God is the same yesterday, today and forevermore. God’s Word is relevant today and is a source of life and direction. (Psalm 19:7-11; 2 Timothy 3:16; 2 Peter 1:20-21).

There is only one true God, Creator of heaven and earth, who eternally exists in three distinct persons: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.  All of creation is good and humans being made in the image and likeness of God, are declared very good.  As being made in God’s image and likeness, humans are created for relationship with God and with one another, and together are given stewardship and rule over creation.   (Genesis 1:26; Deuteronomy 6:4; Isaiah 45:5-6, 46:9-10; Matthew 3:13-17, 28:17-20; John 17:3; 1 Corinthians 8:4-6, 12:4-6; 1 Timothy 2:5). 

Humans rebelled against God, and the relationship with God and creation was broken.  As such, humans are sinful in both birth and action; and the deserved penalty for sin is physical and spiritual death for humans and a creation that is cursed (Genesis 1-3; 6:5; Psalm 51:5; Jeremiah 17:9; Romans 3:23, 5:8-21, 6:23, 7:18; Ephesians 2:1-3; James 1:14-15).

Jesus Christ is the eternal Son of God, was born of a virgin and is both fully God and fully human and is without sin.  Jesus Christ came to save humanity from sin and death by dying as a sacrificial substitute to pay the penalty for sin.  Only through faith in the person and work of Jesus Christ and repentance from sin can one be reconciled to God and experience rebirth by God’s Spirit.  As renewed humans, we join God in the work of reconciliation and restoration of His creation. (Matthew 1:20; Luke 2:52; John 1:1-4, 1:14, 1:29, 3:18, 10:1-8, 14:6; Acts 4:12; Romans 3:21-26, 5:8; 1 Corinthians 15:1-4; 2 Corinthians 5:21; Galatians 1:4; Colossians 1:15-20; 1 Timothy 2:5-6; Hebrews 1:1-3; 1 Peter 3:18)

Jesus Christ physically rose from the dead as victor over sin and death, he ascended into heaven and sent the Spirit on the day of Pentecost.  The Spirit helps, guides, fills, and transforms those who have been reborn and reconciled to God through Jesus.  The Spirit also empowers, strengthens, gives gifts, sanctifies, and moves freely.  Those who are reborn are to seek the infilling of the Spirit, walk by the Spirit, practice the gifts of the Spirit, and bear the fruit of the Spirit in line with the scriptures.  All ministry of the Spirit is to be done in order, for edification and for the glorification of God.  (Romans 12:3-8; 1 Corinthians 12-14; Galatians 5:16-26; Ephesians 4:1-16).


Jesus Christ is the head of the church.  The church consists of God’s gathered people who have been reborn of the Spirit.  The church meets regularly for worship, fellowship, communion, giving and serving in the love and truth of Jesus, with the main goals of making disciples of all nations, baptizing in the name of the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit and teaching the Word of God so that all can obey.  The local church is led by Elders and is grateful for the gifts given by Jesus for the maturation of the church through apostles, prophets, evangelists, pastors and teachers.  The church works together towards healthy relationships and unity, and offers instruction, encouragement, correction, and discipline to that end.  The church honors God’s plan for singleness, as well as marriage, which is a lifelong covenant relationship between one man and one woman.  When the church or any particular member of the church falls short in loving God or loving one another, the Word of God calls for confession of sin, repentance from sin, and reconciliation with God and with one with another. (Genesis 2:24-25; Exodus 20:1-17; Leviticus 18:22-23, 20:1-27; Matthew 18:15-20, 19:4-6, 26:26-29; Luke 22:19-21; Romans 1:18-31; 6:3-4; 1Corinthians 6:9-20, 11:23-29; Galatians 3:27; Colossians 2:12; I Timothy 1:8-11; 1 Peter 3:21; Jude 7).


Jesus Christ will physically return to earth to righteously judge the living and the dead, to gather all who belong to Him, and to renew Creation - a new heavens and earth where righteousness dwells.  For those who have refused the person and work of Jesus Christ, the penalty of sin and death remains eternally, but those who have received the person and work of Jesus Christ by faith are saved from the penalty of sin and death and given eternal life.  Jesus Christ teaches that no man knows the day nor hour of His return, so we are to be watchful and ready, and remain faithful until that Day. (Matthew 24:15-30, 25:13, 28:1-20; Mark 16:1-8; Luke 12:40, 24:1-53; John 14:3; Acts 1:11; 1 Corinthians 15:12-34, 15:51-52; Philippians 3:20; 1Thessolonians 4:13-18; Titus 2:13; Hebrews 9:28; 2 Peter 3:13; 1 John 3:2; Revelation 1:7, 21:22)
