LIVING WORD CHURCH - A CHURCH ON FIRE

 

Jesus did not come to earth to condemn this world, but to save it.

He died for us, and we will live for him. Freely & boldly we stand firm upon the word of God and the gifts of the Holy Spirit.

 God has called us to love one another just as he has loved us.

We are called to be his hands and feet, to shine the light of Jesus in a world full of darkness.  

We want to once again help set the world on fire with the word of God, and help ignite a true passion for Jesus. No longer do we have to live with our burdens. Jesus wants us to come as we are, broken so he can make us new.

We are not a church of religion but one striving to develop a deeper relationship with our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.

We believe every individual has a calling on their life. Everyone has gifts, and unique skills that can be used to glorify the Kingdom of God. We desire to learn and grow in the word to help develop each individual’s passions, talents, and gifts, as well as reaching out to a lost community to spread the love of Jesus. 



If anyone be in Christ he is a new creature;
old things pass away and behold, all things become new.

2 Corinthians 5:17
 
OUR VISION AND PURPOSE
 
A vision, a dream from God, is imperative for all churches as well as for families and individuals.  It gives direction and a purpose for being.  It gives hope and inspires and motivates those who catch hold of it.
 
The Bible says that without a vision everyone goes his own way and is unrestrained, without a common purpose (Proverbs 29:18).  The vision helps bring people into one mind and one accord, into unity that releases the power of God to fulfill the dream.
 
The different parts of the vision below show us what God has called us to be and to do:
 

To be a place of WORSHIP where people can offer to the Lord both celebrative praise and reverent worship.

To PREACH UNCOMPROMISINGLY the full Gospel under the anointing of the Holy Spirit.

To be a COUNSELING CENTER in which counselors operate in the gifts of the Holy Spirit according to the 
Word of God.

To be a DELIVERANCE CENTER where people can be set free from bondage, in Jesus' name.

To be an EVANGELISM CENTER that equips Christians to go forth to share the Gospel of Jesus Christ with others,
bring them into salvation, and help them to become His disciples.
 
To BUILD UP THE BODY OF CHRIST, the church, into its full stature of maturity.

To be a CENTER OF FELLOWSHIP for Christians of all ages, where life-long friendships may be established.

To be a TRAINING CENTER FOR MINISTRY.

To send out a STAFF MISSIONARY to devote full time to spreading the Gospel on the foreign mission field.

To be a HEALING CENTER where people can be healed in body, soul, and spirit.

To SUPPORT OTHER MINISTRIES and aid them in their outreach.
