About Us

Our Vision

 "Building a victorious church that lives the Word through the Power of Jesus Christ.”  

We are a diverse group of believers united by our shared faith in a loving God. 

It is our purpose to intentionally equip people to follow Jesus. 

Church of the Living Word takes its inspiration from 1 Corinthians 15:57.

 "Thanks be to God which gives us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ." 

Our mission is simple: To love  everyone  as Jesus has commanded us.  

A place where unconditional love changes lives

 For more than 22 years, it has been our privilege to preach the good news of Jesus Christ.  We are honored to be the servants of COTLW,  preaching & teaching God’s uncompromising Word.  Pastor Eunice and I are excited to fulfill the call on our lives to spread the truth of God’s love.  We believe when you set aside the busyness of life, open the Bible and focus on what it really means to be born again in Jesus Christ, you’ll discover your true identity as a victorious believer.  Christianity will no longer be a religion – it’ll be reality. ​ Our vision is “Building a Victorious Church that Lives the Word through the Power of Jesus Christ.”  Our ministry of revealing the victorious principles of God’s Word began January 3, 1993.   We challenge people to live the Word through the power of the Holy Spirit.  We encourage people to give priority to God’s Word, instead of focusing on the cares of life.     Join us this Sunday……. We are a church that actively promotes diversity because we believe the Gospel makes us one – transcending all our cultural and ethnic differences.  We are committed to being followers of Christ .
