Living Word invites you
to experience the life-changing power of Jesus Christ.
Living Word Church is located at 1705 Barracada Road in Walterboro.
Living Word is all about faith, hope, and love. We welcome all people from all backgrounds.
Living Word exists to share faith in Jesus Christ with the world.
Jesus came to change our lives. None of us have lived a sinless life, so Jesus came to live a sinless life for us. We all deserve to die for our sin, but Jesus died in our place, accepting our punishment for our sin. Jesus died that we might live—not for ourselves, but for Him. When we accept Jesus by faith, God begins to change us from the inside out. Old things pass away. All things become new. Grace continues this change until we are conformed to the image of Jesus Christ (2 Corinthians 3:18;5:17).
Living Word exists to share the amazing grace of Jesus Christ.

Living Word exists to offer hope
through God’s Word to all who struggle.
The Bible was written to teach us and encourage us by giving us hope (Romans 15:4). It reveals Jesus, the Son of God, Who is our source of hope. Jesus comes to us. He seeks us out. He says if we understood the generosity of God and Who Jesus is, we would ask Him for a life-changing experience. We would allow Jesus to be our source of life change and our source of eternal hope (John 4:10-14).
Living Word exists to share the amazing hope in Jesus Christ found in the Word of God.
Living Word exists to love God and love people
through the power of the Holy Spirit.
“But if a person isn’t loving and kind, it shows that he doesn’t know God—for God is love.”
1 John 4:8 The Living Bible (TLB)
The Holy Spirit wants our love for God to result in acts of love for other people. The Holy Spirit dwells inside us, filling us with God’s unconditional love. Helping us to grow in our love for God and teaching us how to love others the way God loves us.
Living Word exists to share the amazing love of God.
The Bible is filled with stories of faith that tell us where we came from and where we are going. Stories that tell us where things went wrong in the world and what God is doing to bring order back from chaos. All these stories involve faith, because God wants us to have faith (Hebrews 11:6). He gives us His Word to help us make sense of our lives here and now. Through His Word, God reveals eternity and tells us we were designed to enjoy His presence forever. The proof of God’s love is revealed in Jesus Christ, Who died to bring us into a relationship of faith and forgiveness with God our Father.
God is called the “God of hope” (Romans 15:13). His Word offers hope (Romans 15:4). God shares His divine nature with us to give us hope in our battle with our selfish, sinful nature and to help us overcome the corruption and lusts of this world (2 Peter 1:4). God’s Word works inside of us to replace our sinful, selfish nature with God’s divine nature. God floods our hearts with His love through the Holy Spirit and gives us a hope that will never let us down (Romans 5:5). Through His Word and His Spirit, God transforms our hearts and minds so we can think, desire, speak, and act in ways that honor God.
If we could speak in all languages in heaven and earth—known and unknown—but not love others, we would only be making noise. If we could see into the future—know everything about everything—but not love others, we would be nothing. If we had great faith to accomplish great things we would still be worth nothing without love. If we gave all to the poor, or even died for Jesus—but not love others—it would all be of no value without love (1 Corinthians 13:1-3). In this life we have three great lasting qualities—faith, hope and love. But the greatest of them is love (1 Corinthians 13:13).
Faith. Hope. Love. This is why Living Word exists. Here are a few ways we offer faith, hope, and love through Jesus Christ at Living Word.

God’s Higher Thoughts & Ways
“For My thoughts are not your thoughts,
Nor are your ways My ways,” says the Lord.
“For as the heavens are higher than the earth,
So are My ways higher than your ways,
And My thoughts than your thoughts.
Isaiah 55:8-9 (NKJV)
By allowing God to work through us in faith, hope and love we embrace God’s higher thoughts and higher ways. We see life differently. We experience life differently. When our thoughts and ways line up with God’s thoughts and ways, positive change takes place in our lives. Our purpose in life become less about us and more about God and others.
