Welcome to The Elijah Family Group web site. We are part of Living Water Ministries. At Living Water Ministries, we are a partnership of followers of Jesus Christ whose purpose is to: 1.Worship the true and living God. 2. To equip disciples of Jesus Christ through instruction from the whole Word of God, to build relationships that edify through fellowship and to evangelize the world in the power of the Holy Spirit.
Our Pastor, Rick Crocker, succeeded his father, Rev. Harold Crocker who served this congregation as Pastor from 1964 until retiring. Pastor Rick grew up filling various positions in the church and has been on staff since 1995 serving as Administrator and Worship Leader and was responsible for Christian Education & Youth Ministries of the Church. Rick transitioned to become our Pastor in January of 2004.
At LWM we believe The Holy Bible consisting of both Old & New Testaments, is verbally inspired revelation of God to man. Therefore, the scriptures are the infallible, authoritative rule for all matters of faith and conduct.
We believe in The One True God, who is the eternally self-existent Creator and Redeemer of mankind, who has revealed Himself as Father, Son and Holy Spirit. Almighty God is omnipotent, omniscient and omnipresent.
We believe in The Deity of the Lord Jesus Christ, the Son of God, who is God manifested in the flesh. The scriptures declare: His virgin birth, His sinless life, His miracles, his redemptive work, His bodily resurrection, and His exaltation to the right hand of God.
We believe in The Spiritual New Birth of repentant sinners, which is necessary because sin and death are common to all mankind. Salvation is for all those having faith in the Lord Jesus Christ and His resurrection and who receive the regenerative work of the Holy Spirit. This experience, provided by the vicarious death and redemptive work of the blood of Jesus Christ, brings a person into a personal relationship with the Lord Jesus Christ.
We believe in The Baptism of the Holy Spirit, as experienced in the early church, is promised to every believer in Christ, imparting to them spiritual manifestations and enhancing spiritual gifts to edify, encourage and equip the Body of Christ.
