WHAT TO EXPECT

Connection

We see each person walking through the doors of Living Waters World Outreach Center as family. You’ll be greeted with a smile and a hug (or a handshake if you prefer) because we are truly glad to see you. Experience has taught us that God is a God of divine appointments.  Every time we gather together, we come expecting great things from the Lord.

Worship

We believe God is looking for worshipers who will worship Him in Spirit and in truth. Whether it is loud and expressive or quiet and reverential, for us, real worship is a matter of the heart. If it’s Biblical, it’s acceptable. During worship, there is liberty to stand or to bow, to lift hands or to not, to dance or to be still in reverential awe of God. Though we consider ourselves a Charismatic contemporary congregation we have a deep love and appreciation for musical styles that are both old and new.

Communion

At Living Waters, communion is a time to remember the sacrifice of Jesus and to consider all of its benefits. Each time we partake of the elements, our goal is to slow things down in order to receive a fresh infusion of His life. Paul explains in 1 Corinthians 11:26 that as often as we partake in communion we proclaim the Lord’s death until His return. So, we partake often, usually preceded by a short exhortation by a member of the pastoral staff. In this way, the Holy Spirit brings to our remembrance important truths that help us to overcome life’s challenges.

Preaching of the Word

Pastor Rob brings a message of faith, hope and encouragement on a weekly basis. With a style that is both relevant and practical, you will find yourself challenged, refreshed and inspired to be everything God has called you to be.

 

 

OUR FUTURE

Living Waters Worldfuture_interior-page Outreach Center and Faith Christian Academy are taking steps to expand and relocate to a new campus.

We have engaged an architect to develop preliminary drawings and are working with an engineer to complete site engineering. Phase One of the new campus is projected to provide 17 classrooms, state-of-the art technology as well as worship and administrative space for F.C.A and LWWOC.

Many resources, talents, and prayers have already flooded in, but many more are still needed.

OUR VISION

TO BE A PEOPLE WHO TOUCH THE HEART OF GOD AND RESTORE THE HEART OF MAN

Back in the 90s, we were a small church with a nice name sitting on the side of the road, not yet fully aware of God’s full plan and vision for our lives. We were aware, however, that God was taking us somewhere. In time, He gave us a new name, Living Waters, based upon two primary Scriptures, Jeremiah 2:13 and Zechariah 14:8. These two Scriptures now serve as the foundation for both our vision and mission statements, and they govern everything we do.

For my people have committed two evils; they have forsaken me the fountain of living waters, and hewed them out cisterns, broken cisterns, that can hold no water. Jeremiah 2:13

And it shall be in that day, that living waters shall go out from Jerusalem; half of them toward the Dead sea, and half of them toward the Mediterranean sea: in summer and in winter shall it be. Zechariah 14:8

Simply put, God is the fountain of living waters, and we are the Jerusalem He wants to flow through to a lost and dying world.

 

OUR MISSION

TO JOIN PEOPLE TO GOD, BOTH IN RELATIONSHIP AND IN MINISTRY

We know we’ve been born for greatness, but what, exactly, does that look like? We have found that real greatness is not defined by our cars, our homes, or the people we know but by having a loving and healthy relationship with God. That’s because our hearts, whether we know it or not, are longing to be in a relationship with God.  So, our primary goal is to join people to Him first in the relationship and then in ministry. Just like Adam and Eve – called to intimacy and to tend the garden together –  so it is with Christ and the church.

 

 

STATEMENT OF FAITH

We believe the Bible is the inspired, inerrant, infallible, irrevocable and complete Word of God (2 Tim. 3:16-17).  We affirm that God is triune: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit, three in one (1 John 5:7, Colossians 2:9, Mark 1:10-11).

We affirm that man was created in the image of God, but that by voluntary disobedience, he fell from perfection (Rom. 5:12). We affirm that while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us, signing the pardon of all who believe on Him and confess Jesus Christ as their Lord (John 3:16, Rom. 5:8-10).

We affirm that we have no righteousness of our own and must come to God through the righteousness of Christ (Eph. 2:8). We affirm that upon sincere repentance and wholehearted acceptance of Christ as Lord, we are justified before God (1 John 1:9).

We affirm that the change that takes place in the heart and life at conversion is a literal one and is the result of being born of the Spirit of God (2 Cor. 5:17, Gal. 2:20, John 3:5-7).  We affirm that it is the will of God that we live a sanctified and holy life, growing constantly in the faith (Heb. 6:1).

We affirm that baptism by immersion in water is an outward sign of the inward work of salvation (Matt. 28:19).

We affirm in the Lord’s Supper (Luke 22:19) and do so often in remembrance of Him (1 Cor. 11:26).

We affirm that the baptism of the Holy Spirit is to endure the believer with power and that his empowering is after the same manner as in Bible days (Acts 1:8, 2:4).  We affirm that the baptism of the Holy Spirit is a separate experience from that of being born again and is for every born again believer.

We affirm that the Holy Spirit has gifts to bestow upon the Christian and that we should show spiritual fruit as evidence of a Spirit-filled life (1 Cor. 12:1-11, Gal. 5:22-23, Rom. 12:6-8, Eph. 4:11-13).

We affirm that the truth must be balanced with other scriptural truth in order to avoid any extremism or fanaticism, and we affirm that moderation should be shown in our daily walk as believers (Phil. 4:5).

We affirm that divine healing is the provision of Christ to heal the sick in response to the exercise of faith, the prayer of faith, the prayer of agreement, anointing with oil, the gifts of healing, or the laying on of hands. We affirm that this provision of Christ is for everyone today (1 Pet. 2:24, Matt. 8:17, Matt. 18:18-19, James 5:14-16, 1 Cor. 2:9, Mark 16:15-18, Matt. 24:35, Mark 13:31, Luke 21:33).

We affirm that the second coming of Christ is literal and inevitable (1 Thes. 4:16-17).

We affirm it is our sacred duty to identify and actively participate with the local and visible Church of Christ (Acts 16:5, Heb. 10:25).

We affirm that the laws of the land should be upheld at all times except in matters opposed to the Word of God (Rom. 13:1-5).

We affirm that all shall stand one day before God in final judgment and there receive eternal reward or eternal judgment (2 Cor. 5:10, Rev. 20:11-13).

We affirm that heaven is a literal place, eternally existent (John 14:2, Rev. 7:15-17).

We affirm that hell is a literal place of eternal torment for all who reject the Lord Jesus (Rev. 20:10, 15).

We affirm that soul winning and discipleship is the Great Commission given to the church (Mark 16:15, 2 Cor. 5:18-21, Matt. 28:19).

We affirm that the method ordained of God for the support and spread of His cause is by the giving of tithes and free-will offerings (Mal. 3:10, 2 Cor. 9:7, Heb. 7:8).

We affirm that “acceptable” and “true” worship is prescribed by God Himself in His Word. This embodies individual and corporate expressions of praise and thanksgiving and reverence in holiness (John 4:24, Psalm 150).

We affirm, in our church government, to ensure order, and we affirm our loyalty to those acting in rightful authority as they lead us in the Lord (Eph. 4:11-12, Heb. 13:17).

We affirm that in essentials there must be unity; in non-essentials, understanding; and in all things, love (2 Tim. 4:2-4, Rom. 14:13-23, 1 Cor. 13).

We affirm the one universal Church, which is the Body of Christ.  We affirm Christ as its head.  We affirm all that are born again are its members.  We affirm the church’s purpose as offering worship to God, fellowship, ministry and instruction to itself, and evangelism and service to the world.  We affirm the ministries of Ephesians 4 (apostles, prophets, evangelists, pastors, and teachers).  We affirm the spiritual unity of believers in our Lord Jesus Christ.

We affirm the ministry and presence of angels, the reality of the devil and demonic forces.

We affirm the sanctity of human life and that life begins at the moment of conception.

We affirm chastity for Christian single men and women, and the sacredness of Christian marriage. We define marriage as a union between one man and one woman and that romantic and sexual contact between the same sex is sinful according to Romans 1:26-27 and 1 Cor. 6: 9-10.

We affirm that the “stripes” placed upon Jesus Christ at his crucifixion provide physical healing to all who will believe and receive.
