Missional Connections

Partners in Ministry

Locally Committed

We are committed to a vibrant testimony to the life-changing power of Jesus in our local community through ministries of the church and partnership with local Christian outreaches.

Regionally Commissioned

Since it's inception, Living Word has felt called to plant churches. Rather than grow one large congregation, God gave us a vision to plant many smaller churches across the region. In 2006 we planted our first church, Crosspoint Church, into Crown Point, IN. This was an exciting first step into the reality of the vision that God had given us. Since then we have planted Mercy Hill into Munster, IN (2009) and Hope Church into Griffith, IN (2013).
