About Us​​......  

For more than 22 years, it has been our privilege to preach the good news of Jesus Christ.  We are honored to be the servants of COTLW, preaching & teaching God’s uncompromising Word.  Pastor Eunice and I are excited to fulfill the call on our lives to spread the truth of God’s love.  We believe when you set aside the busyness of life, open the Bible and focus on what it really means to be born again in Jesus Christ, you’ll discover your true identity as a victorious believer.  Christianity will no longer be a religion – it’ll be reality.
​ Our vision is “Building a Victorious Church that Lives the Word through the Power of Jesus Christ.”  Our ministry of revealing the victorious principles of God’s Word began January 3, 1993.  We challenge people to live the Word through the power of the Holy Spirit.  We encourage people to give priority to God’s Word, instead of focusing on the cares of life.  Join us this Sunday……. We are a church that actively promotes diversity because we believe the Gospel makes us one – transcending all our cultural and ethnic differences.  We are committed to being followers of Christ .

His Servants,
Bishop Gregory and Pastor Eunice Woodard 


Christ-Centered: Church of the Living Word activities are Jesus Christ centered.   We strive to emphasize what God has done through His Son and what God can do for each person today.

Bible-Oriented: To understand God and His will, one must pray and study the Word of God. Through the preaching, during worship services and teaching during Bible Study and Christian training, people are confronted with the life-changing Word.

Person-Oriented: Jesus came to seek and save the lost.   Counseling, visitation and prayer are a few ways in which we seek to encourage people.

Family-Concerned: Believing the family is the basic and foundational unit of society, we offer  programs during the year to promote family unity. Each family at Church of the Living Word has a Deacon/Deaconess assigned to minister to them. The Youth Ministry provides social, spiritual and service opportunities for young people.

Praise-Filled: Together we celebrate Jesus and the joy of God’s blessings.  People express their feelings in spirit and truth through corporate worship.

Mission-Involved: Seeking to fulfill God’s commission to reach all people for Christ, we are involved in ministering to others. Personal involvement and support through prayer and financial giving allow us to proclaim the Good News of Jesus throughout the world.
