Jesus is the Foundation and Cornerstone of the Church
The Purpose of Living Streams and WaterShed Café and Books is to provide a gathering place and educational center promoting Jesus and the Gospel, in an atmosphere of love, example and encouragement.
We do that by opening our bookstore, coffee bar and event center to the public for various events. These events including concerts, speaking engagements, scheduled meetings and specific educational events that are beneficial to those interested.
Living Streams and WaterShed Café and Books is a hybrid ministry that is dedicated to bringing the Gospel to the public in a direct manner.
Priority of The Word
A primary distinctive of Living Streams is to declare to people the whole counsel of God. The Word of God is what builds us, corrects us and draws us closer to The Lord. We teach the Bible verse by verse, from Genesis to Revelation in its entirety. It is the Word of God that builds the believer.
Rapture of The Church
Looking for that blessed hope, and the glorious appearing of the great God and our Savior Jesus Christ; Jesus plainly declared that he would return to bring us home in the rapture. Keeping that perspective is what keeps us on track in these last days. We are servants waiting for our Masters return.
Empowered by The Spirit
But you shall receive power when the Holy Spirit has come upon you. Jesus said; without me, you can do nothing. True ministry is not about programs or human ability. It is about God working through us in the power of the Holy Spirit. We believe without that anointing our efforts are in vain.
Supremacy of Love
By this shall all men know that you are my disciples, if you have love one to another. Without love all the gifts and knowledge are meaningless. We put great emphasis on our fellowship with one another and believe the true evidence of a growing fruitful relationship with Jesus is our love one to another.
