Living Water Bible Church has been home for my wife and I since we planted this church back in 2013. Our Lord has blessed us with wonderful people who have hearts for the work of Christ. I trust that you will not only become acquainted with the ministry, but would come and see us in the near future if at all possible.
Should you have any questions, please feel free to send us a note or call the church offices at 856-628-4601.
Please pray for us and for the work that our Lord is accomplishing at Living Water. We would love to see you soon! God bless you.
Pastor Fred Cruz
We believe salvation is available to all who would put their trust in the Lord Jesus Christ and so we are inviting you to our church. Our mission is to be fully devoted to Jesus by opening our arms to those in search of the truth. We show God’s love and concern for our fellow man at every opportunity. Through works of charity and opening our doors to listen and love, we feel that we are walking in the footsteps of Jesus Christ.
QUESTIONS AND ANSWERS
Our church has always had an open-door policy. Feel free to ask any question about any ministry. We welcome your questions. Below are answers to some of the questions we are frequently asked.
What's in the name Bible?
This church is a Bible Believing church built on biblical convictions and principles, not by affiliation to any denomination. This means that we believe the following: the Bible is our sole authority for all matters of faith and practice. The church should be autonomous or self-governing. The believer does not need a priest, other than Jesus Christ, to come boldly to God. Every Christian has equal access to God personally. God's Word gives us two ordinances for the church-baptism and the Lord's Table. Each person is individually responsible for his decision to accept Christ. The separation of church and state is biblical. The believer is eternally secure and cannot lose salvation. There are two biblical offices in the church—pastors and deacons.
What does it mean to be an independent church?
As an independent Bible believing church, we are not affiliated with any particular denomination or ruling body. Because of this we can support our own missionaries, select our own leaders, and support institutions that believe as we believe. In short, our church answers to the headship of Jesus Christ rather than a denominational body. There are currently more than 10,000 independent Bible believing churches in America and thousands more throughout the world.
How can I be involved in ministry?
There are two types of ministry involvement at Living Water Bible. A number of people help with various projects. If you would like to volunteer, contact the church. If you are interested in teaching, helping, singing, or other visible positions of leadership; an appointment must be set with the ministry leader. Often a waiting period and a spiritual gift assessment are required.
What does the church do to help widows?
One of the primary responsibilities of each deacon is to assist in caring for the widows of the church. On a monthly basis, the needs of each widow are personally addressed and cared for.
What is the church's approach to financial giving?
We have never practiced pressure techniques or fund-raising schemes. Rather, we choose to occasionally preach and teach what God's Word says about Christian stewardship and giving. How you respond to that teaching is a heart issue between you and the Lord.
