What We Believe
The Bible is our sole guide and sets forth the criteria for a heaven-bound people. We believe that it supremely declares the Holy Oracles of God, which our confidence in its profound truths is essential for establishing our faith and religious practices. (Heb. 4:12)
We believe the Scriptures, both the Old and New Testaments, are the inspired Word of God, the product of holy men of old who spoke and wrote as they were moved by the Holy Spirit; the infallible authoritative rule of faith and conduct. (2 Tim. 3:15-17; 2 Pet. 1:21; 1 Thes. 2:13)
We believe there is one true God, Creator of heaven and earth and Redeemer of mankind, who has revealed Himself as the eternal, self-existent, immutable, I Am, Jehovah God manifested in three persons (The Trinity), the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit. (Duet. 6:4; Ex. 3:14; Is. 43:10-11, 48:16; Matt. 28:19; Luke 3:22)
The Lord Jesus Christ
We believe the Lord Jesus Christ, the eternal Son of God, has always existed and He too is without beginning and without end. He is the only begotten Son, the Word made flesh. In order to complete His earthly sacrificial mission, He became human being conceived by the Holy Spirit, born of the virgin. Being both fully man and fully God, He lived a perfect life, absolutely without sin. While on earth, He worked miracles, signs, and wonders through the anointing of the Holy Spirit. In order to restore fallen mankind, He willingly shed His blood and allowed Himself to be crucified on the cross as a substitute for our sin.
He descended into hell and on the third day, rose, and ascended into heaven where He sits at the right hand of the Father.
The Original Sin and the fall of mankind
We believe that man was created good and upright for God said, “Let us make man in our image after our likeness”. However, mankind, through willful choice, ignored God’s instructions and engaged in what they knew was wrong and evil. Adam’s transgression and fall allowed sin to enter the world and man received a sin nature resulting in physical and spiritual death, which is separation from God. “For all have sinned and come short of the glory of God. As it is written there is none righteous, no not one”. (Gen. 1:26-27, 2:17, 3:6-24; Rom. 3:10, 23, 5:12-19)
The Salvation of mankind
We believe that Salvation is deliverance from spiritual death and enslavement by sin. God provides salvation for all who believe and accept His free offer of forgiveness. The Bible declares that if you confess with your mouth that Jesus is Lord and believe in your heart that God raised Him from the dead, you will be saved. For it is with your heart that you believe and are justified and it is with your mouth that you confess and are saved. Man’s only hope of redemption is through the shed blood of Jesus Christ, God’s Son, and through faith in the Lord Jesus Christ. In response to placing faith in God’s love and freely given gift of salvation, one experiences the washing of regeneration (or spiritual rebirth), the renewing work of the Holy Spirit, and is declared righteous before God. At the moment of salvation, a person becomes heir to God’s promised hope of everlasting life. (Luke 24:47; John 3:3; Rom 10:9-10, 13; Eph. 2:8)
The Evidence of Salvation
Salvation is received through repentance (i.e. the turning away from sin, a change of heart, attitude, and mind towards God). The Spirit bears witness inwardly that we are saved, while there is definite evidence outwardly of a consecrated life of righteousness and holiness. (Rom. 8:16; Eph. 4:24; Titus 2:11-14)
The Church and its Mission
The Church is the Body of Christ, not intended to be the edifice or institution but the dwelling place of God through the Holy Spirit.
We believe that the true church as described in the Bible consists of all people who have placed their faith in Jesus Christ as their Lord and Savior and He is the only remedy for their sins. The church includes all Christians and has no boundaries as to age, race, gender, or denomination. Christ is the head of the Church and He has made every provision for the fulfillment of the Great Commission. Every true believer, born of the Spirit, is an integral part of the assembly and the names of those making up the Church are written in heaven. (Eph. 1:22, 2:19-22; Heb. 12:23)
God’s purpose for the Church is:
to build a body of saints mature in faith and knowledge being perfected in the image of His Son (Eph. 4:11-16; 1Cor. 12:28, 14:12)
The Ordinances of the Church
Baptism in Water
The ordinance of baptism by immersion is commanded in the Scriptures. All who repent and believe in Christ as Savior and Lord are to be baptized. In so doing, we declare to the world that we have died with Christ and that we have been raised with Him to walk in newness of life. (Matt. 28:19; Mark 16:16; Acts 10:47-48; Rom. 6:45)
Holy Communion (The Lord’s Supper)
The Lords Supper, consisting of the elements – bread and the cup of the fruit of the vine – is the symbol expressing our sharing the divine nature of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ, a memorial of His sufferings and death; and a prophecy of His second coming. This ordinance is to be practiced by all believers in His remembrance until He returns. (Acts 2:41, 10:47-48; Rom. 6:4-5; 2Pet. 1:4; 1Cor. 11:24-38; Phil. 3:10)
The Baptism in the Holy Spirit
All believers are entitled to and should ardently expect and earnestly seek the promise of the Father, the Baptism in the Holy Spirit (KJV “Holy Ghost) and fire. This was the normal experience of the believers in the early Christian church. This experience, which is an endowment of power for Christian life and service, is accompanied by the initial physical evidence of speaking in other tongues as the Holy Spirit gives utterance. With the endowment of power comes the bestowment of the gifts and their uses in the work of the ministry.
Baptism in the Holy Spirit and fire is distinct from and subsequent to the experience of the new birth. With the baptism in the Holy Spirit comes such experiences as an overflowing fullness of the Spirit, a deepened reverence for God, an intensified consecration to God, a dedication to His work, a more active love for Christ, an ever-abounding love for His Word and a desire to see the lost saved. We recognize the operation of the gifts of the Spirit in the believer’s lives according to 1Cor. 12:4-11.
Divine healing is an integral part of the New Testament Gospel as taught by Christ, the Apostles, and the early Church. Deliverance from physical and mental diseases, sicknesses, or ailments is provided for in the Atonement and is the privilege of every believer who will accept it. Divine healing is wrought by the power of God through the prayer of faith, the laying on of hands, and fervent prayer and fasting. (Matt. 8:16-17; Mark 16:18; Luke 5:15; Acts 5:16; James 5:14-16)
Sanctification is a definite yet progressive work of grace as taught in the Scriptures which leads to holiness. Christians should lead a life of holiness “Without which no man shall see the Lord.” Sanctification in the believer is demonstrated by an act of separation from anything considered evil or sinful in the Scriptures and of dedication to God. By the power of the Holy Spirit, we are able to obey the command “Be ye holy for I am holy”. (Rom. 12:1-2; 1Cor. 1:30; Phil. 3:12-14; 1Thes. 5:22-23; Heb. 12:14, 13:12; 1Pet. 1:15-16; 2Pet. 3:18)
The God-Appointed Ministry
We believe God, by the Holy Spirit, calls whom He desires to serve in the five-fold ministry of Apostles, Prophets, Evangelists, Pastors, and Teachers, and anoints those He has called with power, talent, wisdom, and gifts pertaining to that office or offices. “Let every man abide in the same calling wherein he was called.” (1Cor. 7:20, 12:28; Eph. 4:11)
The Blessed Hope
The resurrection of those who have fallen asleep in Christ and in their translation together with those who are alive and remain unto the coming of the Lord is the imminent and Blessed Hope of the Church. “The dead in Christ shall rise first; then we which are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air”. (Rom. 8:23; 1Cor. 15:51-52; 1Thess. 4:16-17; Titus 2:13)
The Millennial Reign of Jesus
The Millennial reign is the return of our Lord Jesus Christ with His saints from heaven to rule and reign for one thousand years on earth as the Scriptures promised. After this, there shall be a new heaven and a new earth. (2Thess. 1:7; Rev. 19:11-16, 20:1-7, 21)
The Final Judgment
There will be a final judgment in which the wicked dead will be raised according to their works. Those who have not accepted the redemptive work of Jesus Christ will suffer eternal separation from God. The devil and his angels, the beast and the false prophet, and anyone whose name is not found written in the Book of Life will be consigned to everlasting punishment in the Lake of Fire which burns with fire and brimstone. This is the second death.
Who We Are
Living Waters Family Worship Center is a non-denominational, Spirit-filled Church located in the heart of Cape Coral, Florida. Founded by Pastor Mack and Toni Walker in August of 2006, Living Waters Family Worship Center grew from a home Bible Study with 5 believers to the church we are today.
Pastor Mack and Toni had a vision for a different kind of church; a church where everyone was welcome and where everyone would feel valued; a church where people could begin their journey with Jesus and would continue to grow in their knowledge and understanding of the things of God; a church that focused on developing leaders who would continue to serve in ministry; a church where people would value others above themselves. This is what Living Waters Family Worship Center has become.
Pastor Mack Walker has served in ministry for over 30 years. He’s served as a worship leader, Bible teacher, associate pastor and now serves as senior pastor at Living Waters Family Worship Center. Pastor Mack is a leader of leaders and is a highly requested guest speaker at venues across the eastern seaboard. His messages are riveting and relevant for people of all ages. While his heart resides with his church family, he has a true desire to reach nations with the message of Jesus Christ. Pastor Mack is an ordained minister and has a bachelor’s degree in business administration, a master’s degree in corporate management, a master’s degree in Theology, and is a doctor of Divinity.
Pastor Toni Walker has served in ministry for over 25 years. She is an anointed worship leader, singer, songwriter, administrator, and teaching pastor. She is a Dove-nominated recording artist and is currently working on her third Christian album. Her desire is to lead people into the presence of God through worship and the Word; to see people set free from the things that keep them bound, and to teach and reach those who do not yet have a personal relationship with Jesus. Pastor Toni is a conference speaker and worship leader. She is an ordained minister and has a bachelor’s degree in education, a master’s degree in educational leadership, a master’s degree in Theology, and a doctorate in organizational leadership.
Both Pastor Mack and Pastor Toni have a sincere desire to see lives changed, transformed by the renewing of the mind; to see people become devoted followers of Jesus Christ becoming a little bit more like Jesus every day.
To build a Church, a house of worship, dedicated to prayer, praise, and the teaching of God’s Word…
~ A Church so Kingdom-minded, Christ-Centered, and dependent upon the Holy Spirit that nothing can stop it, stand against it, or separate us from the love of God that resides in it.
The mission of the church is to glorify God by making disciples
through the gospel of Jesus Christ. God’s mission and the mission
of His Church are inseparably linked.
