ABOUT US

ABOUT US

The Word of Life Church is a multigenerational church with a tremendous heart. Every member is truly valued and a part of the ministry. The church was organized in May of 2012. Reverend Rickey Reed is pastor and visionary of the Word of Life Church. He has a passion and love for the Word of God and the people of God. There are four foundational pillars of the church. These pillars have been succinctly embedded in the fabric of the ministry. 

The first is Engagement. Its focus is on the individual’s faith, followship, and fellowship with the members of the body of Christ. A strong faith, followship, and fellowship gives a pictorial image of what the church should look like. Jesus said, “by this shall all men know that ye are my disciple, if you have love for one another.” (John 13:35 KJV). Acts 2:42 states, “And they continued steadfastly in the apostle’s doctrine and fellowship, and in breaking of bread, and in prayers.”

The second is Equipping. Equipping is vital to church growth. The Apostle Paul expresses its importance in Ephesians 4:11-13a. “And he gave some, apostles;and some, prophets; and some, evangelists; and some, pastors and teachers; For the perfecting of the saints, for the work of the ministry, for the edifying of the body of Christ: Till we all come in the unity of the faith…” We, the Word of Life Church, believe the Bible is the Word for LIFE!

The third is Empowerment. We are empowered by the Spirit of God. It is the Holy Spirit that leads and guides us into all truth. The enemy is always on the attack, doing its job, which is to steal, kill, and destroy. But the Word again directs our path in 1 John 2:26, 27 “These things have I written unto you concerning them that seduce you. But the anointing which you have received of Him abideth in you, and ye need not that any man teach you: but as the same anointing teaches you of all things, and is the truth, and is no lie, and even as it hath taught you, ye shall abide in HIM.” Thank God for His promise. He did not leave us comfortless.

 

The last, but not least is Encouragement. This one is dear to the heart and fellowship of our church. No matter how saved one believes to be, how many achievements they have accomplished, how gifted, skilled, talented, or anointed one might be, WE ALL GET TIRED AND NEED ENCOURAGEMENT. It is our mission to keep one another encouraged. There is a challenge in trying to maintain, simultaneously, family, faith, and work.
