Statement of Faith

We believe:

  • Jesus is truly God as taught by the Bible.
  • Our faith is in one God, the Holy Trinity; who is God the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.
  • Jesus Christ, though fully God, became fully human.

We Confess:

  • The Bible is God’s word and teaches about our fall into sin, Jesus Christ, salvation, the church, civil government, and our Lord’s return.
  • We cannot save ourselves because sin has affected every part of our nature. We cannot come to faith by ourselves. God takes the initiative, choosing us in Christ without consideration of any good in us, not even foreseen faith. God’s Spirit alone can work in us the miracle of saving faith that gives us new life in Christ.
  • Our rescue from sin is a free and unearned gift of God through Jesus Christ. Our grateful response is living in faith and obedience to our Lord

Core Values

  • We value Scriptures and its authority as our rule for faith, life and ministry.
  • We value the duty of contending for the faith.
  • We value the spiritual disciplines of the Christian life.
  • We value the importance of mutual edification, accountability and submission.
  • We value biblical unity in the Body of Christ.
  • We value upholding and cultivating a biblical view of God in the church life and ministry.
  • We value the mandate of discipleship of the Lord Jesus Christ for the preservation and propagation of the pure Gospel in our country and to wherever God will guide us.
  • We value the biblical standard for leadership.
  • We value establishing vision and direction for leaders and the local church.
  • We value the promotion of Christ-honoring family relationships.

Mission

Our mission is to uphold and cultivate a biblical and lofty view of God in the life and ministry of the church which includes contending for the purity of the gospel and the biblical faith, standing as the body to which ministers and leaders of member-churches, although autonomous, will be held morally and doctrinally accountable, equipping pastors and workers of churches outside our communion, planting churches where the Holy Spirit will direct, and spreading the message of salvation of Christ Jesus to the world at large. All these things shall we do by the grace of God for the glory of His name until the day of His coming for His church

Vision

LWCCCII seeks to bring GLORY to God, by enhancing the individual and corporate spiritual lives (passion and devotion in the disciplines of worship, prayer, study, meditation and application of God’s word) of its people through the faithful preaching and teaching of God’s word. It seeks to uphold the supremacy of Christ in the individual and corporate life of the church, thereby bringing about spiritual maturity and holiness for both. It likewise seeks to build the local church through discipleship to bring about ministry to the church based on loving relationships, having understood the concept of being part of Christ’s body and God’s household. As part of its commitment to discipleship, it seeks to safeguard the church from false doctrines, churches and teachers. Lastly, it seeks to fulfill the Great Commission in the establishment of churches here and abroad, by the preaching of the Gospel in the power of the Holy Spirit. All of these pursuits are to be sought in dependence and guidance on the power and wisdom of the Holy Spirit.

The Book of Acts in Chapter 20: 35 tells us that Jesus said, “It is more blessed to give than to receive.” Living Word’s ministry is all about the joy and privilege of giving and sharing whatever “graces” we have received. God has made us understand that we have been blessed, undeserving as we are, to be a blessing to people, communities, cities, provinces, our nation, and other nations that God will allow us to connect with. We have come to understand in a deeper way that whatever we have received as a church is an unmerited favor and if God blesses us in whatever way, we want to be a conduit of God’s message and love to others, as a way of responding back to God’s lavishly expressed love and faithfulness towards us.

We have been greatly humbled by what God has allowed us to do in spite of our lack, inadequacies, and even failures. The hand of God has providentially and miraculously multiplied the “two fish” and “five loaves” we have, and we have seen him move, over and above, our prayers and expectations. This website is our way of being a blessing to others by sharing our preaching audios and videos, songs given birth by God’s Spirit, as well as locations where you can reach us and be ministered to personally by us or by our churches. As we share these things, we desire only the glory of God and the extension of His kingdom.

Likewise, we provide information in regard to the people who serve in our church and still want to be of service to you in one way or another. You will likewise be given an understanding of who we are and what we do. As you explore the features of this website, we hope that you will “see” Jesus as your supreme treasure, unrivaled, transcendent and pre-eminent over everything.
