Worship Effect is Living Word’s house band. In 2021, we felt the call from God to begin writing and producing our own music, all for His glory and honor. We believe that when we work together to produce the music God has put on our hearts, the whole church will be lifted up by it. Worship Effect has played everywhere from inside Living Word and outdoor community events to Kampala, Uganda. You can be a part of whatever God has next for us.


Living Word’s volunteer community is inviting, fun, and generous. We work every day to be the kind Christian leaders that Paul describes in the book of Titus, and to be ready for every good work.

LW Bible College

Living Word Bible College (LWBC) began as a dream in the hearts of Drs. C. Thomas & Maureen Anderson over 20 years ago when they founded Living Word Bible Church. In 2012, through the extension campus program of Life Christian University, that dream became a reality. Life Christian University was founded by Dr. Douglas Wingate in 1995 with the endeavor to provide the highest quality education possible to ministry students throughout the world. Living Word Bible College is committed to quality education for ministry students here in the phoenix metro area as well as providing distance learning to students nationwide. We were awarded ‘Campus of the Year’ for 2012-2013 and gained accreditation through Transworld Accrediting Commission International (TACI) that same year.
