The Mission

The Mission of Living Word Ministries is to equip saints for the service of the Lord. There are three functions in our mission: A family church, a teaching center and an outreach community.

Family Church 

Living Word is interested in helping families become complete as they learn to apply God’s Word and allow him to be in control of their lives. It is our desire to reach the youth and encourage them to use their talents to glorify the Lord.

A TEACHING CENTER

“Free Knowledge, bring your own container.” In order for us to be equipped for the work of the Lord, we must learn who we are in Christ and how to exercise our spiritual gifts. As a teaching center, the ministry stands on the scripture II Timothy 2:15: “Study to show thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the Word of truth.” Through Sunday School and Bible Study, living Word endeavors to train its members on how to integrate the scriptures into their lives through prayer, fasting, and practical application.

“I been a member since the age of 13 and I can’t leave home I love my church  now I’m 21 and my church is truly home.” – Makesiha Pannell

Outreach 

As an outreach center, Living Word adheres to Mark 16:15 which tells us to “Go ye into all the world, and preach the gospel to every creature.” We believe that this can only be accomplished by taking the Gospel of Jesus Christ outside of its four walls and into the neighborhood.
