I’M NEW HERE

WHERE AND HOW TO START


WORDS FROM PASTOR AUDIE CLAIRMONT

GREETING MESSAGE

Hello and welcome to our church website,we are pleased and we praise God. We hope you find our ministry to be an inspiration and a blessing. We believe you will find a place of restoration, renewal and relationships here at Church of The Living Word.

This is an exciting place to connect with others on their journey as they seek their purpose in life. It’s a home for the whole family to learn about God in a way that is not only practical but also fun.

Paul wrote to the Romans: …“in Christ we who are many form one body, and each member belongs to all the others.” What is this? It’s a family! We are a purposely intergenerational group, celebrating the diversity of our lives together. Young, not so young, married, single, widowed, different ethnic backgrounds, different economic circumstances…all facets of life are represented in Church of The Living Word.

Jesus established the church to be a community of believers, a family, to encourage each other in unity and to project His life to the world. As a family, our goal is to love each other without conditions or expectations. We confess that we are unable, on our own, to practice the unconditional love demonstrated by our Father, but we pray and desire that He empowers us to demonstrate His love to you and those around us.

If you are searching for a group of people to accept you where you are and challenge you to grow in your reflection of God’s love, “Welcome” for that is our goal. For those who call this “home,” we commit to pray, to listen with compassion, to forgive and to nurture. If you are not perfect, if your are looking for grace and love and an opportunity to be part of something bigger than yourself, something that can change the world, we invite you to experience our church family.

At the present time, if there is a way we can be helpful to you and /or your family, please let us know. We are here for you, and look forward to the opportunity to serve you.

To learn more about the other ministries and opportunities available at Church of The Living Word, please continue to browse the website or contact the church office.

Again, thank you for visiting our website. I’m truly excited for the plans and purposes God has for your life!

Faith Common Questions

People look to a lot of different things for answers and purpose in life. Things like relationships, jobs, money, possessions… Not all of these things are bad, but none of them can provide what we’re really looking for. In fact, only one person can: Jesus.

Jesus loves you – so much, in fact, that He died for you, and then rose from the dead so that you could spend forever with Him. By putting your trust in Him, you can have eternal life!

Should I be Baptized?

Our greatest desire is to help people connect with Jesus and become strong disciples.

One of the first things Jesus calls His disciples to do is be baptized.

Baptism is the opportunity to publicly express to your church, friends and family the commitment you have made to Jesus Christ.

If you have made the decision to follow Jesus and haven’t been baptized, we’d love to help you make it a reality!
