About LWM

The vision of Living Word Ministries was born in 1983 when a Bro Emma Okorie, itinerant Evangelist combing parts of Nigeria and West Africa for souls – God affirming his Ministry with signs and wonders, heard expressly from God to change the course of his Ministry.
God ordained him an apostle and asked him to give new born-again Christians a more formidable foundation – ‘building a memorial for God’ that will last forever.

Hence, Living Word Ministries is an apostolic ministry ordained by God for equipping of the saints (born-again Christians/believers in the Word of God). The Ministry’s main vision is the establishment of Living Word Training Centre – the mother of the whole Ministry, where people are trained, and their graces called forth.

At Living Word,

Everybody is somebody, and Jesus is Lord!

What We Believe


The Bible is 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 New Covenant as recorded in the New Testament, we accept as our infallible guide in matters pertaining to conduct and doctrine (11 Timothy 3:16; 1 Thess. 2:13; 11 Peter 2:21).

Baptism in water is by immersion and is a direct commandment of our Lord, and is for believers only.  The ordinance is a symbol of the Christian’s identification with Christ in His death, burial, and resurrection (Matthew 28:19; Romans 6:4; Colossians 2:12; Acts 8:36-39).

Man’s first step towards salvation is godly sorrow that worketh repentance.  The new birth is necessary to all men, and when fulfilled produces eternal life (11 Corinthians 7:10; 1 John 5:12; John 3:3-5).

Healing is for the physical ills of the human body and is wrought by the power of God through the prayer of faith, and by laying on of hands.  It is provided for in the atonement of Christ, and it is the privilege of every member of the Church today (Mark 16:18; James 5:11-20; 1 Peter 2:24; Matthew 8:17; Isaiah 53:4-5).

The Baptism in the Holy Ghost and fire is a gift from God as promised by the Lord Jesus Christ to those who are believers in this dispensation and is received subsequent to the new birth.  This experience is accompanied by the evidence of the speaking in other tongues as the Holy Spirit Himself gives utterance (Matthew 3:11; John 14:16-17; Acts 2:38-39; Acts 19:1-7; Acts 2;4).

The Bible teaches that without Holiness no man can see the Lord.  We believe in the doctrine of sanctification as a definite, yet progressive work of grace, commencing at the time of regeneration and continuing until the consummation of salvation (Hebrew 12:14; 1 Thessalonians 5:23; 11 Peter 3:18: Philippians 3:12-14; 1 Corinthians 1:30).

The angels said, “This same Jesus shall soon come in like manner”.  His coming is imminent.  When He comes, 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” (Acts 1:11; 1 Thessalonians 4:16-17)  Following the tribulation He shall return to earth as King of Kings, and the Lord of Lords and together with His Saints, who shall be Kings and priests, He shall reign a thousand years (Revelation 20:6).

The one who physically dies in his sins without Christ is hopelessly and eternally lost in the lake of fire and therefore has no further opportunity of hearing the gospel or for repentance.  The lake of fire is literal.  The terms “eternal” and “everlasting” used in describing the duration of the punishment of the damned in the lake of fire, carry the same thought and meaning of endless existence as used in noting the duration of joy and ecstasy of the saints in the presence of God (Hebrew 9:27; Revelation 19:20; Hebrew 6:1-2).

We partake of the Lord’s Supper to show the Lord’s death till He come (1 Cor. 11:23-31).  The bread symbolizes the Lord’s broken body (Isaiah 53:5; 1 Cor. 11:24).  The cup represents the new covenant in His blood, which provides us forgiveness and relationship with God (Hebrews 9; 1 Cor. 11:25).  We judge ourselves and realize that this is our salvation and receive it unworthily — without giving it honour as our salvation, we are guilty of the body and blood of the Lord (1 Cor. 11;27).
