Who we are

A Christ-Centered Bible Church

Living Word’s vision is to grow a family that experiences every promise of God. This means strengthening your family, and also, recognizing that we as a church are a family. We are a church that is for ALL. The A stands for acceptance. We accept you just the way that you are. The L stands for laughter. We think church can be a place full of laughter instead of stuffy and boring. And the L stands for love, meaning that we love you when you walk in, and we like to have our people walk out loving those in our community.

DISCOVERING JESUS

We are a faith church. Faith is the substance of things hoped for, and the evidence of things unseen. Faith comes by hearing the Word of God, and so we have a very strong focus at Living Word in teaching the Word of God. The Bible says it is impossible to please God without faith (Hebrews 11:6).

a family

BUILDING STRONG FAMILIES

We believe that strong families make for a strong life, a strong church, and a strong community. Our families are built upon our foundation in Christ. Your family is your first church. For this reason we ask that people put Christ first, then family second, and ministry third.

What we do

Our Services

We use music, video, and other creative elements to communicate truth in a contemporary way. You will find out we really enjoy laughter and think a “family gathering” ought to be joy-filled. We hold a high reverence for our Most High God, but we never take ourselves too seriously. We want you to leave our services feeling uplifted and ready for success. The world can be tough all week – we want your church experience to be a “re-charging” experience!
