Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; the old has gone, the new has come!
II Corinthians 5:17
The name Living Word represents the belief that God's word is living and essential for answering the questions for this life, and the life after. It also reminds those searching that this "living" word was not only relevant in the past but meets our every need today!
We believe that the Bible is God's Word and is the final source and guide for faith, doctrine and life. We accept the Lutheran Church's Confessions of Faith as being a true expression of God's Word. We believe that a congregation is an assembly of believing Christians where the Word of God is preached in truth and purity and the sacraments are administered in accordance with the Lord's institution.
We believe in a personal relationship of salvation in Christ as moved by the Holy Spirit. We believe that all believers in Christ are involved in spreading the gospel and furthering the work of the kingdom of God.
We seek through Sunday school, Confirmation instruction, Bible Camp, Youth Fellowship and Youth Ministries to grow our young people to be followers of Jesus Christ. We believe in a strong evangelistic emphasis and with other congregations support mission work in the United States, Canada, Mexico, Cameroon, Chad, Japan and Taiwan.
