Greetings in the name of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ! I am honored and excited to share with you some of the awesome things God is doing here at Living Word.
Living Word Christian Center is a Word of Faith, non-denominational Christ-centered church. Our mission is reaching and harvesting lost souls for Christ, and teaching the Body of Christ how to effectively apply God's principles to their daily lives, causing them to prosper in everything they set their hands to and take dominion in every area of life. This is a place where Believers can come to learn to use the Word of God as the Covenant of God; a place of personal relationship and not vain religion. For too long the church has been living far beneath her privileges.
Traditionally, people have referred to the Church as "non-profit," when in reality, the Church, operating in the power of the Holy Spirit, should be the most profitable entity in the earth. Living Word Christian Center is an instrument in the hand of God to help make this a reality.
I believe that in this last hour God is raising up churches that are completely equipped and committed to managing the great end-time harvest of souls that are coming into the Kingdom. As we have stepped out in faith to complete the work God has called us to do, he has blessed this ministry tremendously. Manifestations of His vision coming to pass here are the Living Word Bible Training Center, Living Word Mission Center, Joseph Center for Business Development, Joseph Center School of Business & Entrepreneurship, Big Joe Media, Cornerstone Bookstore, City Services, Inc. and others. The Lord has taken this ministry from a storefront church with a handful of members on the westside of Chicago to a burgeoning fellowship of well over 8,000 people. And this is just the beginning.
As you explore our website, you will see the various facets that make up Living Word Christian Center and the impact the Anointing has had on each area. My prayer is that your heart will be encouraged and your faith ignited by these testimonies of God's goodness. Our desire is that you will want to go after everything God has promised for you and everyone that Believes. God is no respecter of persons. What He has done here at Living Word is his desire for the Church globally. And God is able to do "exceedingly, abundantly above all that we ask or think according to the power [faith] that worketh in us" Ephesians 3:20.
In His Service,
William S. Winston, Pastor
