The Living Word Ministries was born for the purpose of spreading the Good news of our Lord Jesus Christ to all man. Know that Salvation is personal, and unless you are Born-Again, you are not saved.
Our Gospel is Simple: The Finished Work Of Jesus Christ On The Cross for mankind; Those Who Believes In Him! “For I determined not to know any thing among you, save Jesus Christ, and him crucified.” (1 Corinthians 2:2) “For by grace you have been saved through faith, and that not of yourselves; it is the gift of God, not of works, lest anyone should boast.” (Ephesians 2:8-9) “Sirs, what must I do to be saved?” So they said, “Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ, and you will be saved, you and your household.” (Acts 16:30-31) “ For I delivered unto you first of all that which I also received, how that Christ died for our sins according to the scriptures; 4 And that he was buried, and that he rose again the third day according to the scriptures:” (1 Corinthians 15:3-4). Jesus Christ is the center of The Gospel. "Nor is there Salvation in any other, for there is no other name under heaven given among men by which we must be saved," (Acts 4:12), Only Jesus Christ!
We also believes in the Spiritual anointing of Christians to be Ambassadors for the spreading of The Gospel in the Power Of The Holy Spirit, doing Signs and Wonders. “The Spirit of the Lord God is upon Me, Because the Lord has anointed Me To preach good tidings to the poor; He has sent Me to heal the brokenhearted, To proclaim liberty to the captives, And the opening of the prison to those who are bound; 2 To proclaim the acceptable year of the Lord, And the day of vengeance of our God; To comfort all who mourn, 3 To console those who mourn in Zion, To give them beauty for ashes, The oil of joy for mourning, The garment of praise for the spirit of heaviness; That they may be called trees of righteousness, The planting of the Lord, that He may be glorified.” (Isaiah 61:1-3 NKJV)
It is the Mission, Vision and Commission of The Living Word Ministries Evanston to Educate, Equip and Empower members and our community members to effectively utilize their God's given Gifts (Entrepreneurial and Leadership skills etc) for the development of their families and community alike, thereby furthering the building of the Kingdom of God.
In the area of education and career development, our focus is primarily on the youths and the adolescents in the community. We believe that education is the formidable foundation for a better future. To allow these youths to live life in illiteracy is not only ignorance, but profoundly ungodly. We are called to break and dismantle every barricade that prevent individuals from experiencing abundant life in Jesus Christ. As The Savior, Jesus Christ paid for these in full and at a very high price.
In implementing the vision divinely given to us, we hope to minister to the youths against the apparent deluge of drug use, and violent tendencies in the community. Equally, we hope to redirect their lives to positive activities that will steer them in the direction that will catapult them to a productive, economic and socially fulfilling lives.
“He (Jesus) said to them, “Go into all the world and preach the gospel to all creation. Whoever believes and is baptized will be saved, but whoever does not believe will be condemned. And these signs will accompany those who believe: In my name they will drive out demons; they will speak in new tongues; they will pick up snakes with their hands; and when they drink deadly poison, it will not hurt them at all; they will place their hands on sick people, and they will get well.” (Mark 16:15-18 NIV)
