ABOUT US

We are an open book. We want to be as transparent as a church as possible. We are very open with our goals and ambitions through Christ. Feel free to ask us anything you need.


It is our hopes that this pages answers three basic questions. We want to make sure that you understand the personality of the church. We love God, love people, and would love for you to join us. 



WHY WE EXIST

We exist for three main reasons that feel very strongly about. We believe that focusing on these three things is what God calls for us to do. We trust in the Lord and follow his will. 


LOVE OF THE WORD

The Bible is the blueprint on how we should live our lives. We strongly believe that if we follow the Word that we will grow stronger as a community, and close to God. We rely heavily on what the Bible says so that we may not stray away from the path that God has set before us.

LOVE OF GOD

The Bible say's You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind.  At Living Word we are striving to love God with 100% of our being.  God gave us emoitonal love as well as intellectual love!  We aren't perfect but we strive to grow deeper everyday in our relationship with our Father!

LOVE FOR HIS CHILDREN

As long as we love one another we will grow stronger as a community of believers. We feel that engaging in fellowship is a very important tool that God calls for us to do as often as possible. If we continue to reach the lost and broken, and extend grace, God will bless us for our efforts.

TESTIMONIALS

"I felt right at home when I walked through the doors of Living Word Community church for the first time. Everyone was very welcoming and I felt no pressure by any means. I have now been going to the church for a number of years and love connecting with everyone here."

Laura Mcginnis

"I would highly recommend this church to anyone who is feeling lost, empty, or just looking to connect and grow with God. I wasn't really connected with a church before coming to Living Word and now I have had a chance to build my relationship with Christ. It has been an awesome experience."
