We believe that the Bible is the inspired Word of God (2 Timothy 3:16). As such, it is inerrant (without error) and completely true in all its parts (John 17:17).
We believe that there is only one way to heaven and that is through Jesus Christ. He is the way, the truth, and the life (John 14:6). Salvation is found in no one else (Acts 4:12).
We believe that we are called to be salt and light—separated from the ways of the world—and that this difference is to be reflected in the life of the congregation (Matthew 5:13-16).
We believe that we are on a mission to make disciples of all nations (Matthew 28:18-20; Acts 1:8).
We believe that the congregation is the right form of the Kingdom of God on earth, with no authority above it besides the Word of God and the Spirit of God (2 Corinthians 3:17).
We believe that the sacraments are God’s means of grace for His Church (Matthew 26:26-28; Acts 2:38; Romans 6:3-4). At Living Word, we practice infant baptism and admittance to the Lord’s Supper for all baptized and instructed believers who are trusting in Jesus for the forgiveness of their sins.
We believe that we are sinners and are in need of a Savior (Romans 3:23-25; Ephesians 2:1-10). Because of the grace that we have received from Jesus, we also strive to extend forgiveness to one another (Ephesians 4:32).
