A Message From Our Pastor

Thanks so much for checking out our website! I believe that it reflects who we are….a group of people who are interested in having a serious relationship with God and who have discovered that life is more manageable, worthwhile, and enjoyable through a daily walk with Jesus. We are a church that is excited about ministering to people’s needs and serving Christ in Las Vegas.

Our desire is for you to experience the “abundant life” that comes only by knowing Jesus Christ as Savior. If you like what you see here, you may want to step from the “cyber world” to the real world and come be our guest at Living Water Baptist Church….a place where our commitment is “To Know Christ and Make Christ Known.”

I would like to extend a personal invitation to you to visit Living Water. If I can be of help, please do not hesitate to contact me.

Living Water Baptist Church Statement of Faith

We are a family of believers who have the following fundamental beliefs:

God

We believe that there is one God who exists in three persons: the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit.

Father

We believe that God is the Eternal Father, creator of the universe and the author and finisher of our salvation.

Jesus

We believe that Jesus is the Son of God, was born of a virgin, was wholly God and wholly man, lived a sinless life, shed His blood and died in our place as a sacrifice for the sins of mankind, was buried, arose bodily from the grave, and ascended into Heaven. He is the one and only Savior of humanity who will literally return to earth.

Holy Spirit

We believe that God the Holy Spirit is active in convincing unbelievers of their need for salvation, and is the Comforter and Guide Who lives in every believer.

Bible

We believe that the Bible is the inspired Word of God without any error, the sole authority for life and faith.

Man

We believe that man is a special creation of God, made in His image, but that through the sin of the first man Adam, mankind fell so that all men are sinners and need salvation.

Salvation

We believe that salvation is a free gift of God’s grace, received through repentance of sin and faith in the Lord Jesus Christ alone.

Assurance

We believe that every person who has truly received salvation is eternally secure in the Lord Jesus Christ.

Eternity

We believe that those persons who die in their sins without Christ spend eternity in Hell and those persons who die with their sins forgiven through Christ spend eternity in Heaven.

Baptism and The Lord’s Supper

We believe that water baptism is an act of obedience to the command of Christ and is by immersion after salvation. We believe that the Lord’s Supper is for believers to proclaim Jesus Christ’s sacrificial death and future return.

Church

We believe that the church is comprised of all born again believers, primarily represented through a local body of baptized believers with the Lord Jesus Christ as the Head.

We affirm the articles of faith as stated in the Baptist Faith and Message of the Southern Baptist Convention (June 2000). We believe the Baptist Faith and Message is consistent with scripture and useful in providing further detail on our beliefs as a church. However, ultimately, we acknowledge the Bible as the highest authority in all matters of Christian faith and practice.
