At Living Word we’re growing a family that experiences every promise of God. We’re a church for ALL–equipping families to win through Acceptance, Laughter, and Love. We believe in Jesus. His teachings and ministry embody unbridled love and acceptance for all who are weary. Through His example, our church equips its family to succeed in the world of today. Through acceptance, laughter, and love, our services and ministries show people just how valuable they are to God, and just how much they can accomplish in this lifetime through Jesus. That’s what church is about. We hope we see you soon!



Pastor Paul and Christi Earle

Pastor Paul & Christi Earle grew up in Mesa, AZ. On March 24, 1994, in his late teens, while attending Living Word Bible Church, Pastor Paul found Jesus and was radically saved from a life of drug addiction. Shortly thereafter, he met and married his best friend, Christi. Enrolling at Phoenix First Pastors College, Paul & Christi began training for ministry under the leadership of Tommy Barnett. They helped build New Life Family Church in downtown Gilbert, and becoming Lead Pastors in 2012. NLFC became Living Word Gilbert in 2018, rejoining Pastors Paul and Christi to their church home. The Earles have four kids, love the TOWN (not city) of Gilbert, and are passionate about seeing people fall in love with Jesus & keep that fire burning bright.
