Who We Are

Living Word’s services are characterized by a friendly and relaxed atmosphere of tender worship that brings you closer to God’s heart.

With each service, we offer practical instruction from the Word of God that will equip you to be a doer of the Word. Personal ministry is provided after each service, including prayer for healing and any other needs as well as general counseling.

FOUNDERS

Nevil & Rina Norden

“Can a nation come back to God?” Your answer determines your involvement! Since the birth of Living Word in 1986, it has been Nevil and Rina’s desire that Living Word will be and will remain a true renewal congregation.

This means that we will be one of the congregations where Christianity will again be experienced as dynamic in the book of Acts (Acts 3:19; Acts 2: 42-46) – dynamically, liberating, and lovingly convincing society for Jesus! The Bride of Christ must begin to rule everywhere with Jesus, the Bridegroom, from heavenly places.

It was not possible before, because the ministry of apostle, prophet, evangelist, shepherd and teacher was not fully restored (Eph. 4: 11-14). Also, the process of discipleship was not thoroughly in place. We believe that we are part of God’s answer for Pretoria / Tshwane, South Africa and internationally.

Our ministry is aimed at raising your spirit, soul and body (1 Thess. 5:23) so that you will live up to your creative purpose. It is my desire to truly make people hungry for the Living Word of God and to see that the Word grows with power. (Acts 19:20)

MANDATE STATEMENT

“Can a nation come back to God? Your answer determines your involvement.”

The strategic alignment of LW in the body of Christ is based upon our mandate and vision. We achieve our mandate through the process of discipleship: win, establish, equip and send.

VISION STATEMENT

“The establishing of a loving, Word-based Kingdom community.”

The vision of Living Word defines its purpose and describes the purpose and function that God sees for Living Word within the body of Christ. (Matt. 6:10; Matt. 28:19-20; Matt. 6:33; 1 Pet. 1:22; 1 Joh. 3:11; 1 Joh. 4:7, 11-12; Luk. 17:21; Joh. 13:34-35, 15:12; Heb. 4:12; Isa. 55:11; 1 Joh. 2:5; 2 Tim. 2:15; 2 Tim. 3:16-17; Heb. 10:24-25; Acts 2:1; Col. 3:14)

MISION STATEMENT

“To become a passionate doer of God’s Word.”

Jesus calls us to become fishers of men (Matt. 4:19; Mark 1:17) and to follow in his footsteps (Luke 9:23; Matt. 16:24-26). These fish need to be caught (‘win’), cleaned (‘establish’), prepared (‘equip’) and made available as food (‘send’). (Matt. 7:24-27; Luk. 6:46-49; Jam. 1:23-25; Ps. 119:103, 105; Joh. 14:15, 21-24; Joh. 15:10-14; 1 Joh. 2:3-5; 1 Joh. 4:20-21; 1 Joh. 5:2-3; Isa. 55:10-11)

We believe in one God who exists forever as three persons: Father, Son and Holy Spirit.

LIVING WORD'S
LOGO EXPLAIN

 

The emblem symbolizes the Word and the cross, with the words separated from the graphic forms to establish a stronger recognizable emblem.

The “embrace” speaks of the “life” in “Living Word”, it speaks of dynamics and movement. The cross is never static – it invites us to meet with the Way, the Truth and the Life – Jesus Christ. The cross is red – Jesus was fully human; His body was torn to the cross – His blood penetrated red into the cross.

Red speaks of passion (Song 8: 6-7), love (John 3:16) and life (John 15:13). Furthermore, the “embrace” also speaks of Living Word’s core values, especially oneness, love and grace.

The Word is blue, the color of royalty. The Word portrays the Lord’s merciful Kingship in our lives (Rom. 2: 4). Jesus is the Living Word (1 John 1: 1 and John 1: 1-3). Jesus is our King! Finally, the text: “Lewende Woord” (Afrikaans) printed in shallow, bold letters creates a more modern look, with “Living Word” (English) in dark gray capital letters, so that an international or English-speaking audience will immediately understand what “Living Word” means.

The cross, as an internationally known symbol, speaks of the person of Jesus Christ of Nazareth. The cross thus personifies Jesus and with the Word, our Jesus, the Living Word.
