Our Beliefs

Jesus

At Living Word Church we believe everything is about Jesus. We exist because of him and it is in him that we put our faith. We believe he was a real person who actually came down from heaven, took on the form of a human being, proclaimed the message of the kingdom of God through his words and deeds, died on the cross, rose to life, ascended to heaven, is right now seated with God the Father and will be back again!

Word

At Living Word Church we believe in the true and inspired word of God i.e. The Bible. We are extremely intentional about the fact that everything we say and do at Living Word finds it’s grounding in the Bible. This is a non-negotiable.

Spirit

At Living Word Church we believe in the active and ever empowering presence of the Holy Spirit at the initiation and continual working out of our salvation. He is the one that enables us to do the work of the Father by graciously giving us gifts and producing visible fruit in our lives.

City
At Living Word Church we see ourselves as servants of this great city, Mumbai. We love Mumbai and consider it our responsibility to serve its spiritual and practical needs. Being part of Living Word means seeing yourself as one involved in seeking the welfare of the city.
