PASTOR'S CORNER

VIDEO - Welcome from Pastor Michael

Welcome to Living Truth!

We are glad that you have chosen to visit our website. We are a church fellowship with a passion to reach out to the lost and build up believers in Jesus Christ. The symbol on our logo is a pillar and the pillar sums up what Living Truth is all about. Paul wrote to the young Pastor Timothy in 1 Timothy 3:15; “But in case I am delayed, I write so that you may know how one ought to conduct himself in the household of God, which is the church of the living God, the pillar and support of the truth.”

The people of Living Truth have embraced this threefold description of our name:

1) Living Truth emphasizes Jesus Christ. He is the embodiment of truth (John 14:6, Ephesians 4:21). He is the “God of truth” (Psalm 31:5, Isaiah 65:16). He is the Head of the church (Ephesians 5:23) and He is the Chief Shepherd (1 Peter 5:4). He is also the One we are to become like (Romans 8:29; Ephesians. 4:15).

2) Living Truth emphasizes the power and “aliveness” of God’s Word. “For the Word of God is living and active and sharper than any two-edged sword, and piercing as far as the division of soul and spirit, of both joints and marrow, and able to judge the thoughts and intentions of the heart” (Hebrews 4:12). The church must “preach the Word” (“the truth”) (see 2 Timothy 4:1-5, cf. 2 Peter 2:1-2). It is God’s truth that saves (Romans 1:16) - Specifically the truth of the Gospel of Jesus Christ (Ephesians 1:13; Colossians 1:5; 2 Thessalonians 2:10, 12-13; 1Timothy 2:4). God’s truth sets us free (John 8:31-36, Romans 8:1-2) and sanctifies (John 17:17). God’s Word is alive and powerful and its truth will impact, change and shape lives.

3) Living Truth is what we are all supposed to be about. We are to live (out) truth (1 Peter 1:22-23, 2 Peter 1:12). We are to teach and disciple people to do this in their every day lives, on Sunday morning, at their workplace, school, sports program, hobbies, etc. The church must be mission minded. We, the church, by God’s grace and power need to remember who we are and what we are to be doing. Our prayer is to see an evangelistic fire, a passion for corporate outreach, as well as a desire for everyone in the fellowship to reach their “sphere of influence.” As we collectively live out truth (Ephesians 4:1) people will be touched around us and God will be glorified (Matthew 5:13-16).

This is what we are about! Please check out our website for more information and be sure to listen to some of the sermons so you can get to know us better and don’t hesitate to call upon us if we can help you in any way. May God richly bless you and your loved ones.
