FULL-GOSPEL: God is for the total person – soul, mind, body, and spirit. He can save our souls, heal our minds and bodies, and fill our spirits. He offers total deliverance for the total person and the total family. And...He still works miracles today! Now, that's good news!
SPIRIT-FILLED: God wants every believer to be filled with His Spirit...today. In fact, we invite God's Holy Spirit to fill us – to live, move, and operate through us – every day. We also invite His presence and power into every service. His anointing lifts every burden, destroys every yoke, and empowers every believer to effectively serve God.
BIBLE-PREACHING: We preach nothing but the Word of God. God has not called our church to reach out with personal opinions, motivational thoughts, or psychological insights. We're called to bring the fullness of the revelation, truth, and power found only in the Bible. Faith comes only by hearing the Word of God preached. That's all you'll hear at Living Waters.
We believe that the Bible is the inspired and the only infallible and authoritative written word of God.
We believe that there is one God, eternally existent in three persons: God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit.
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, in His personal future return to this earth in power and glory to rule a thousand years.
We believe in the blessed hope - the rapture of the Church at Christ's coming.
We believe that the only means of being cleansed from sin is through repentance and faith in the precious blood of Christ.
We believe that regeneration by the Holy Spirit is absolutely essential for personal salvation.
We believe in water baptism by immersion. The redemptive work of Christ on the cross provides healing of the human body in answer to believing prayer.
We believe in the baptism of Holy Spirit, according to Acts 2:4, is given to believers who ask for it.
We believe in the sanctifying power of the Holy Spirit by whose indwelling the Christian is enable to live holy life.
We believe in the resurrection of both the saved and the lost, the one to everlasting life and the other to everlasting damnation.
