welcome to living word church!

Living Word is a church that LOVE is building! For over 35 years, we've been passionate about serving our community. Whether you're just curious or seriously seeking a "church home", you are absolutely welcome here!

We're a non-denominational, full gospel Christian church that was started in 1980 in a storefront in downtown Chadbourn. Today our ministry occupies 20 acres east of Chadbourn on old Highway 74-76. Our congregation is multi-ethnic and culturally diverse, with a casual atmosphere, vibrant worship

and relevant teaching. Everything we do here is designed to help you and your family

take your next steps with God.
