Mission & Vision

Living Word is a grace-filled community where the messiness of life, the message of hope, and the beauty of Jesus converge.

Our Mission

The Messiness of Life

Come as you are! We recognize that our lives are not neat, clean packages. No matter your life situation, we’re here to offer acceptance.

The Message of Hope

The Gospel is the message of a hope-filled future. We seek to live out this message and communicate it in ways that are easy to understand.

The Beauty of Jesus

Jesus is among us in our daily lives and when we gather together. He is wonderful, loving, gracious, kind, and good. In a word, He is beautiful.


We are called to live in the reality of life. Life takes on a whole new meaning when Christ’s beauty and hope enter into the messiness of our daily experience.

Our Vision

Life Together

At Living Word, we desire to create a sense of warmth, acceptance, and personal connection. We’re a place to call home and a place to celebrate grace.

Jesus Encounters

The ministries of Living Word foster the presence of God among us. We want people to know Jesus, encounter Him, and walk with Him.

Beyond Sunday

We embrace God’s call to live out His presence and grace in the York community and around the world.
