Living Word is a multi-national, multi-generational energetic and grace-filled community, dedicated to proclaiming the unconditional love of God for all people. We welcome people of all faiths and denominations, and those of no faith.
We believe that the message of Christ offers unconditional love and acceptance of all people regardless of race, creed, sex, or social status. It is the message of Christ that empowers us to look beyond ourselves, living out our faith in dynamic new ways.
Our faith finds expression and devotion to God, through our service to the world and to one another. We believe in feeding the hungry, sheltering the homeless, clothing the naked, speaking out for justice and standing up for equality. We believe that we are blessed to be a blessing with our time, talent and treasure.
We are a Perfect Church for Imperfect People; dynamically proclaiming Jesus Christ. We are part of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America, a church that shares a living, daring confidence in God’s grace. Liberated by our faith, we embrace you as a whole person – questions, complexities and all.
To be a living expression of Jesus Christ in the world.
To be a faith community that Welcomes All, Equips All and Sends All.
A Welcoming Church: extending the love of Jesus through hospitality and service.
An Equipping Church: partnering with individuals and families to build and model faith.
A Sending Church: going into the world to be the hands and feet of Jesus.
Our core values are expressed in five unique ways:
Sing: we engage in dynamic worship that inspires us to Christ-centered living.
Serve: we live each day committed to serve the least, the last and the lost.
Study: Scripture informs how we live in a changing world.
Share: we use our time, talent and possession to honor God.
Shepherd: we extend care and hospitality.
