Our Story

Living Word Lutheran Church was formed in 2009 as a new congregation affiliated with Lutheran Congregations in Mission for Christ (LCMC).  The LCMC was founded in 2001 as an association of confessional Lutheran congregations and pastors from around the world.  LCMC is made up of people who gather around the Word and Sacraments.

Living Word first held meetings at at Ballou Jr. High School, and later secured an office space and moved their Sunday services to the Meridian Habitat Center in Puyallup, WA.

Living Word is firmly committed to the authority of the Bible.  As Living Word's congregational faith statement says:

"This congregation accepts the canonical Scriptures of the Old and New Testaments as the inspired Word of God and the authoritative source and norm of its proclamation, faith and life."

In addition, we as a congregation and as an association affirm the Reformation motto of

"Grace Alone, Faith Alone, Word Alone." 

With these free gifts, we are to "grow in the grace and knowledge of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ" (II Peter 3:18, NKJV) so that "we no longer should live the rest of our time in the flesh for the lusts of men, but for the will of God" (I Peter 4:1 NKJV).
