Our Mission & Purpose

LWC is built on the foundation of God’s Word, especially Romans 10:8. “The Word is near you, in your mouth and in your heart, that is, the Word of Faith which we preach.”
We have over 35 years of ministering the Word of God with pureness of heart and without compromise. We are a Word of Faith Church affiliated with ICFM, the International Convention of Faith Ministries. We have created a family oriented church in which all are welcomed and ministered to, no matter the age. LWC is a place where individuals and families can grow together and flourish in their faith in Jesus Christ and discover God’s plan for their lives. When you leave one of our services you will find yourself both encouraged and inspired with the knowledge that God loves you, and your life will be changed through the ministry of the Life of God!
