The Leadership of Word Alive Church

Word Live Church is a gospel-centered community with leadership positions that equip, care for, and shepherd the body of Christ. We believe leadership is empowered by Christ and under His authority, our responsibility as under-shepherds is to release ministry and empower God’s people to effectively and efficiently serve the body of Christ and the world.


Our Statement of Faith

  • We believe the Bible is the inspired and only infallible, authoritative Word of God. (2 Timothy 3:16-17)
  • We believe that there is one God, eternally existent in three persons: Father, Son and the Holy Spirit. (1 John 5:6-8)
  • 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 through His shed blood, in His bodily resurrection, in His ascension to the right hand of the Father, and His personal return in power and glory. (1 Cor. 15: 3-4, 1 Peter 2:18-24, John 3:16)
  • We believe that for salvation of lost and sinful man, regeneration by the Holy Spirit is absolutely essential. (Romans 3:21-30, Galatians 4:4-7)
  • We believe that the full consummation of the Baptism of believers in the Holy Ghost is evidenced by the initial physical sign of speaking with other tongues as the Spirit gives utterance, and by the subsequent manifestation of spiritual power in public testimony and service. (Acts 2:4, Acts 10:44-46, Acts 19:2, Acts 19:6, Acts 1:8, Acts 2:42-43, Matt 3:11)
  • We believe in the resurrection of both the saved and lost; that they are saved unto the resurrection of life; and that they are lost unto the resurrection of damnation. (John 5:24, 28 & 29)
  • We believe that deliverance from sickness is provided for in the atonement and is the privilege of all believers. (Isaiah 53:4, Matt 8:16-17, Mark 16:18, John 5:6-14, 1 Peter 2:24)
  • We believe in the imminent return of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. (1 Thessalonians 4:13-18, Rev. 22:20, John 14:3
