where we start
We believe that we serve an all-powerful God "who is able to do far more abundantly beyond all that we ask or think" (Ephesians 3:20). He held nothing back in order to reveal His love to humanity, but gave His own Son to bring us to Him.
With a God that is so EXTRAORDINARY, His followers also should be EXTRAORDINARY. We should love like He loves- all the way, even if it costs much.
As we strive to know the love of Jesus and then carry it forward through the power of the Holy Spirit, we live in constant expectation of divine encounters and miracles because that is what we see in the ministry of Jesus and His followers throughout the New Testament.
We strive to let the Holy Spirit be our worship leader. As a result, every service is different and unpredictable. Extraordinary potential hangs in the air when we worship together. We welcome the biblical manifestation of the Gifts of the Spirit (1 Corinthians 12), but also believe that God is purposeful and not chaotic. Our goal during worship is to connect deeply with the heart of God, to experience His Presence and then see what He does next. We want everyone who attends our services to "taste and see that the Lord is good!" Psalm 34:8.
Our goal is to let God speak to His people with power. We want true conviction from the Holy Spirit to be present in every service. To accomplish this we primarily use expository preaching. That simply means we pull truth out of God's Word instead of trying to inject our own truth into it. When God speaks, extraordinary things occur!
To see God glorified as Jesus makes ordinary people extraordinary through the power of the Holy Spirit.
There are a number of ministries at Living Word Assembly designed to lead children, teenagers and others to a deeper relationship with God.
