Our Statement Of Faith
Affiliation & Beliefs
Church Of The Living Word, World Outreach Center is an evangelical, Word Of Faith church. We are affiliated with International Convention of Faith Ministries (I.C.F.M.) Although we are an Independent Church we are inter-dependent for fellowship and accept those from various denominations who believe Jesus Christ is Lord and is the only way to salvation. We believe in ministry to the whole family, with the whole counsel of God to the whole man, spirit, soul and body. We are missions minded and believe in the Great Commission to win the lost and make disciples in every nation.
Building Strong Families In Word and Faith
A summary of our basic Christian beliefs
- We believe the Bible is the inspired and only infallible and authoritative written Word of God (2 Tim 3:16).
- We believe there is one God, eternally existent in three persons: God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Ghost (2 Cor 13:14).
- We believe in the deity of our Lord Jesus Christ, in His virgin birth, in His sinless life, in His miracles, in His vicarious and atoning death, in His bodily resurrection, in His ascension to the right hand of the Father, and in His personal future return to this earth in power and glory to rule a thousand years (1 Cor 15:3-4).
- We believe in the "blessed hope," the rapture of the Church, at Christ's coming (Titus 2:13).
- We believe the only means of being cleansed from sin is through repentance and faith in the precious blood of Jesus Christ (1 Pet 1:18-19).
- We believe that regeneration by the Holy Spirit is absolutely essential for personal salvation (John 3:3-5).
- We believe the redemptive work of Christ on the cross also provides healing of the human body in answer to believing prayer ( 1 Pet 2:24, Psa 103:2-3).
- We believe that the baptism of the Holy Spirit is given to believers who ask for it (Acts 2:4, Acts 2:39).
- We believe in the sanctifying power of the Holy Spirit by whose indwelling the Christian is enabled to live a holy life (Gal 5:16).
- We believe in the resurrection of both the saved and the lost, the one to everlasting life, and the other to everlasting damnation (John 5:28-29).
Church of the Living Word, (COTLW) is a family worship center. We are a Word of Faith, non-denominational ministry. The home and family are a top priority. Revival and long term change begins in our homes. Unity and maturity in the Body of Christ will never be a reality in the world until it is accomplished in our homes and churches.
Church of the Living Word is an evangelistic outreach ministry dedicated to sharing Jesus as both Lord and Savior in every realm and circumstance of life. We are called to be a "lighthouse" to the Rio Grande Valley and its communities. We follow the Great Commission to win souls and make disciples. Our ministry responsibilities are to feed the souls that God brings into the local church, minister to the needy , and promote mission outreaches, We offer ministry and counsel to adults, youth, singles and children.
