WHAT WE BELIEVE
Living Word Church is committed to the cause of Jesus Christ as set forth in the Holy Scriptures of the Old and New Testaments. We believe that Scripture is the ultimate authority for the Church’s teaching and practice. And we're convinced that our God is saving human beings from every people and nation by His grace, which is received through faith in Jesus alone.
Now this is eternal life; that they may know you, the only
true God, and Jesus Christ, whom you have sent. – John 17:3
Since we believe that God is absolutely sovereign in saving His people, we joyfully and confidently proclaim the good news that Jesus died to redeem sinners like us!
Tim Keller puts it well: “The gospel is this: We are more sinful and flawed in ourselves than we ever dared believe, yet at the very same time we are more loved and accepted in Jesus Christ than we ever dared hope”.
