Living Way has been presented with a unique opportunity and responsibility. Our location near the High School and our placement on School Road provides us with the ability to be a "lighthouse" to our community. We believe we are directed to help the mountain community find Jesus, find their "fit" and fulfill their call.
FINDING JESUS: It is not difficult to find Him! We all start this spiritual journey at the same place. We recognize sin is present in our life and we need a remedy for the consequences of our actions. Jesus said, "You shall know the truth and the truth shall set you free." (John 8:32). When we believe Jesus is God's remedy for our sin, we can confess our sin and receive His free gift of grace to forgive us of all our sins. Our need to "find Jesus" doesn't stop at salvation. We also need to find Him when we are faced with various circumstances of life. He is a light to our path and will give us direction through His Word, through the "nudging" of the Holy Spirit and through the counsel of His people. We only need to be open and obedient to hear His direction.
FINDING YOUR "FIT": The Scripture teaches us that we are all part of the Body of Christ and each of us has a specific purpose within the body. Part of our discipleship as a Christian is to find a place to serve the body with the gifts we have been given. 1 Corinthians 12 indicates that we cannot say to a particular part, "I don't need you." We also believe that we cannot say to the body, "You do not need me." Christian maturity forces us to look for a place to serve so we can be made complete. Where else are you going to learn how to grow and develop in a healthy environment? Finding your fit is necessary for being a part of God's family.
FULFILL YOUR CALL: You are His workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for the good works He intended for you to do, so that you can walk in them. Ephesians 2:10 What are you created for? You have been uniquely designed and trained to excel in the place you are planted. Do you want to make a difference in the world? Do you have an idea of how to do that? We would like to help you fulfill the unique call God has placed in your heart
