WHO WE ARE:    Living Word Bible Church is an independent non-denominational body of believers in the Lord Jesus Christ. We meet for worship on Sundays in Morris, Illinois.

As the Reformers' cry was sola scriptura, we seek to preserve and proclaim the classic truths of God's Word. We desire that all aspects of our worship service, preaching, scripture reading, prayer, and music (whether traditional hymns or contemporary choruses) be brought under biblical authority.

You can learn more about us by reading our Statement of Vision, which describes the purpose, nature, roles, and strategy of Living Word Bible Church. We assemble together, disperse in the world, and disciple families – all TO THE GLORY OF GOD.

HISTORY:    Living Word Bible Church had its beginnings in the summer of 1999, with a few families meeting together in a living room for worship and fellowship.  This group of families grew in number and eventually had to find another, larger location in which to meet.  The owners of the Blackburn-Lanagan Funeral Home graciously allowed the church to meet in their facility on Sunday evenings in the autumn of that same year. 

This growing body of believers formally selected the name "Living Word Bible Church" and began meeting on Sunday mornings at the Channahon Junior High School in December.  After several months of work preparing the Articles of Faith and church Constitution, the first "charter" members officially joined the church in October of 2000.

In November the church's first four elders were confirmed.  In May 2001 Pastor Timothy Greene was named Senior Pastor of Living Word Bible Church by confirmation vote of the congregation.
