Description of the Church

Living Word Baptist Church (founded in 1984) is a theologically conservative Southern Baptist church located in Forest VA.  Living Word exists to glorify God by making disciples through gospel-centered, Christ-exalting: Worship, Proclamation, Community and Mission.  We are a diverse congregation with attenders of all walks of life and demographics.

Our church is located just outside the Lynchburg city limits.  We have been placed in a strategic location for reaching Lynchburg and the surrounding areas with the gospel of Jesus Christ.  Come and worship with us!  Sunday School at 8:45 am, Worship Services at 8:30 am, 10:00 am and 5:00 pm; and Wednesday Night at 7:00 pm for Bible Study.
