Welcome to The Living Word Church & World Outreach Ministries

¬†It’s no accident that you are on this website at this moment and I count it as a privilege to have you visit it. The word of God says, “…if you seek, you will find. If you knock, the door will be opened.” As you seek to know God, He is just as eager to know you intimately. He desires a love relationship with you that is real and personal. I believe that we can help you in the discovery process. If you have questions, God has the answers.

Apostle Lesley & Pastor Rosella Ford

We believe the following:


The Bible

The Bible is the written word of God inspired by God. II Timothy 3:16.


God is one person expressed in three persons. Matthew 3:16-17. God the Father, Almighty, the author and creator of all things. John 14:20; Matthew 6:8. God the Son, Jesus, the second person of the trinity. John 1:1; Matthew 1:18,25; Romans 5:10. The Holy Spirit is God the spirit, the third person of the trinity. He is co-equal and co-eternal with God the father and God the son. John 14:16-17.

Jesus Christ

His substitutionary death and redemption through His blood for mankind. Isaiah 53:4-5. His bodily resurrection. Matthew 28:6-7,17. His ascension to the right hand of the Father. Mark 16:19; Acts 2:33. His personal return to glory and power. Revelation 19:11,16. The deity of our Lord, Jesus Christ. John 1:1.

The Holy Spirit

We believe in the indwelling of the Holy Spirit and the baptism of the Holy Spirit with the evidence of speaking in tongues. Acts 10:46; Acts 19:1-6. The Holy Spirit has present day ministry in believers through the distribution of gifts. Acts 1:8; I Corinthians 12:1; I Corinthians 3:11


The reality of Satan and his present control over unregenerate man. John 10:10; II Corinthians 4:4.


Man was created in the image of God but fell into sin. Therefore, man is lost. This makes it necessary for man’s rebirth through confession of sin and his belief in the Lord, Jesus Christ. Genesis 2:16,17; Genesis 3:6; Romans 5:12.

 Baptism and Communion

We believe in water baptism by immersion of the total body after accepting Christ as your personal savior. This is a testimony of death to sin and resurrection to a new life. We believe in baptizing in the name of the Lord, Jesus Christ and the authority in the name of the Lord, Jesus Christ. We believe The Lord’s supper is a memorial service setting forth in a sacred and symbolic manner, the death of the Lord, Jesus Christ. All true believers and only believers should share in it.

Future Events

After death, eternal life begins in heaven for believers or in hell for unbelievers. Matthew 25:34,41; Revelation 20:11-15.


We believe in tithing (10% of all your income) and bringing offerings into the local church. We also believe in giving alms (money or goods) to the poor, sick, homeless and otherwise unfortunate. Malachi 3:8-11.
