Our church family has decided that the first thing of importance to us is the Presence of the Holy Spirit. We believe the presence of God changes everything and distinguishes us from other religions and systems of beliefs. Without the presence of the Holy Spirit, we are just playing church, but with His presence we can see Heaven on Earth.
Then Moses said to him, “If your Presence does not go with us, do not send us up from here. How will anyone know that you are pleased with me and with your people unless you go with us? What else will distinguish me and your people from all the other people on the face of the earth?” And the Lord said to Moses, “I will do the very thing you have asked, because I am pleased with you and I know you by name.” Then Moses said, “Now show me your glory.” - Exodus 33:15-18 (NLT)
Everyone wants to be celebrated and not just tolerated. Every individual is infinitely valuable to God and should be to us. No matter what color, race, nationality, education, economic status or past, every person is invited to experience the transforming love of Jesus Christ. The love of God is stronger than fear, prejudice, hate, shame, guilt and every other vice of destruction. We are the family of God and welcome you to be part of our family.
A mission gives our lives focus. At Living Word, we believe that as a church family we have the responsibility to help each other discover our purpose and mission in life. We have two growth tracks for individuals to find out their strengths and to utilize them in a life giving way. For those that want to go even deeper in their self discovery, we offer leadership training tracks that will position individuals to live out of their hearts and strengths.
God has given us a promise that He wants to release the reality of the kingdom of heaven here on earth. Sure, He could just speak it into existence but He chooses to use us, His sons and daughters. What would it look like if every believer believed and lived out this conviction that God wants to demonstrate all of the attributes of the kingdom of heaven here on earth? Can you imagine what a great place that would be? Come join us to see this reality happen here on earth.
