Who We Are …

LIVING WATERS CHURCH was birthed on the corner of 9th and Broadway with a vision to fulfill the Great Commission in the Alexandria area. Through the years our vision has grown to reach people of every age group with the goal of developing and maturing our relationship with Jesus Christ and build authentic relationships with the people of God, spurring each other towards a Kingdom revolution.

We are excited to see what God has in store for Living Waters. There is a deep sense of purpose being realized. This journey has involved an age-old quest of seeking the heart of God, His desires, His destiny and His purpose for us and Alexandria. In our quest, there will always be the unknown. But as we continue following in the footsteps of Jesus, we will remain resolute in what He has designed and called us to. He is here, watching, guiding, shaping, loving and using us to reach out to our world until the day He returns.
