About Us

Welcome to Living Word Pensacola!

In 2019 the Lord placed it on Pastor Paul & Tiffani's heart to plant a church, so in 2022 they moved their family from Illinois to Pensacola, Florida to begin that work! In January of 2023, Living Word Pensacola was formed. 

For several months we met in Pastor Pauls home, inviting others to join. We had wonderful times of worship, teaching, and great food! 

 

On September 10th, 2023 LWP officially got our first building! God provided and we now meet on Sundays at 10am.

We Believe...

THE SCRIPTURES

The Bible is the inspired Word of God, the product of holy men of old who spoke and wrote as they were moved by the Holy Spirit. The New Covenant, as recorded in the New Testament, we accept as our infallible guide in matters pertaining to conduct and doctrine. (II Timothy 3:16; I Thessalonians 2:13; II Peter 1:2)  

THE GODHEAD or TRINITY

Our God is One, but is manifested or revealed in Three Persons: the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit. They are co-equal (Phil 2:6). God the Father is greater than all, the Sender of the Word, the Begotten (John 14:28; John 16:28; John 1:14). God the Son is the Word flesh-covered, the One Begotten. He has existed with the Father from the beginning (John 1:1; John 1:8; John 1:14). God the Holy Spirit proceeds forth from both the Father and the Son, and is also eternal (John 15:26).  

MAN, HIS FALL and

HIS REDEMPTION

or SALVATION

Man is a created being, made in the likeness and image of God. Through Adam's transgression and fall, mankind lost fellowship with God, and sin came into the world. "All have sinned, and come short of the glory of God" (Romans 3:23). "As it is written, `There is none righteous, no, not one'." (Romans 3:10). Jesus Christ, God the Son, was manifested to undo the work of the devil, and gave His life and shed His blood to redeem and restore man back to God. (Romans 5:14; 1 John 3:8). Salvation is a gift of God to man, separate from the works of the law by man. Salvation is by grace (unmerited favor), and occurs through faith in Jesus Christ. (Ephesians 2:8). 

ETERNAL LIFE

and the

NEW BIRTH

Every person can have restored fellowship with God through salvation or the "New Birth". (John 3:3-5). Man's first step toward salvation is having a godly sorrow that results in repentance, or turning away from sin. (II Corinthians 7:10). The New Birth is necessary for any man to receive salvation and occurs when a person confesses that Jesus Christ is their Lord. When this New Birth is experienced, it produces eternal life. (I John 5:12).

WATER BAPTISM

Baptism in water is by immersion, is a direct commandment of our Lord, and is for believers only. The ordinance is a symbol of the Christian's identification with Christ in His death, burial, and resurrection. (Matthew 28:19; Romans 6:4; Colossians 2:12; Acts 8:36-39). The following we recommend regarding the water baptismal: "On the confession of your faith in the Lord Jesus Christ, the Son of God and by His authority, I baptize you in the name of the Father, and the Son, and the Holy Ghost. Amen. 

HOLY COMMUNION

The Lord's Supper is to be observed in symbolic remembrance of Christ's suffering and death for our salvation. (Luke 22:18-20, 1 Corinthians 11:23-26). 

BAPTISM IN the

HOLY SPIRIT

The Baptism in the Holy Spirit is a gift from God as promised by the Lord Jesus Christ to all believers in this life, and is received subsequent to the New Birth. This experience is accompanied by the initial evidence of speaking in other tongues as the Holy Spirit Himself gives utterance. (Matthew 3:11; John 14:16,17; Acts 1:8; Acts 2:38,39; Acts 19:1-7; Acts 2:4).

SANCTIFICATION

The Bible teaches that without holiness, no man can see the Lord. We believe in the Doctrine of Sanctification as a definite, yet progressive work of grace, beginning at the time of the New Birth and continuing throughout one's life until the consummation of salvation at Christ's return. (Hebrews 12:14; I Thessalonians 5:23; II Peter 3:18; II Corinthians 3:18; Philippians 1:12-14; I Corinthians 1:30).

THE GREAT COMMISSION

The Church as the Christ-given commandment to tell others that salvation is by no other than Christ Jesus alone. (Acts 4:12).  “And Jesus came and spake unto them, saying, All power is given unto me in heaven and in earth. Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost: Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you; and lo, I am with you always, even unto the end of the world. Amen” (Matthew 28:18-20)  

LEADERSHIP

Each local church has divinely called and scripturally ordained leadership. (Ephesians 4:10-13).  The Bible teaches that each believer, under this leadership, must commit himself to reach others for Christ, to worship the Lord with other believers, and to help build up or edify other believers in the Church.  

DIVINE HEALING

Healing is for the physical and mental ills of the human body, and is wrought by the power of God through the prayer of faith and by the laying on of hands.  It is provided for in the atonement of Christ, and is the privilege of every member of the Church today.  (Mark 16:18; James 5:14-25; I Peter 2:24; Matthew 8:17; Isaiah 53:4,5).

RESURRECTION

OF THE JUST

and the RETURN

OF OUR LORD

“The angels said to Jesus’ disciples, ‘This same Jesus shall come in like manner as ye have seen Him go to heaven’.” (Acts 1:11).  His coming is imminent, and is described as following:  “For the Lord Himself will descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel and with the trumpet of God, and he dead in Christ will rise first.  Then we who are alive and remain will be caught up together with them in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air, and so we shall always be with the Lord.”  (I Thessalonians 4:16,17).  Following the Tribulation, He shall return to earth as King of kings, and Lord of lords, and together with His saints who shall be kings and priests, He shall reign a thousand years. (Revelations 20:6).

HELL AND ETERNAL RETRIBUTION

The one who physically dies in his sins without accepting Christ is hopelessly and eternally lost in the Lake of Fire and therefore has no further opportunity of bearing the Gospel of Jesus Christ or repenting.  The Lake of Fire is literal. The terms “eternal” and “everlasting” used in describing the duration of the punishment of the damned in the Lake of Fire carry the same thought and meaning of endless existence as used in denoting the duration of joy and ecstasy of the saints in the presence of God.  (Hebrews 9:27; Revelations 19:20). 

NEW HEAVEN and NEW EARTH

We look forward to the perfect New Heavens and a New Earth that Jesus Christ is preparing for those out of every era and every tribe and every tongue and every nation that choose Him. “And they sung a new song, saying, Thou art worthy to take the book, and to open the seals thereof; for thou was slain, and hast redeemed us to God by thy blood out of every kindred, and tongue, and people, and nation; And hast made us unto our God kings and priests; and we shall reign on the earth.” (Revelations 5:9,10). “But the day of the Lord will come like a thief, in which the heavens will pass away with a roar and the elements will be destroyed in this way, what sort of people ought you to be in holy conduct and godliness, looking for and hasting unto the coming of the day of God, wherein the heavens being on fire shall be dissolved, and the elements shall melt with fervent heat? Nevertheless we, according to his promise, look for new heaven and a new earth, wherein dwelleth righteousness.  Wherefore, beloved, seeing that ye look for such things, be diligent that ye may be found of him in peace, without spot, and blameless.” (II Peter 3:10-14).
