In August of 2002, Pastor Carter established The Living Word Christian Ministries. The ministry is the realization from the vision that God birthed in Pastor Carter who was led to provide a venue where; the presence of God abides, where the people are taught truth and where a warm family atmosphere is encouraged. Our initial services were held in Berry Elementary School located in Waldorf, Maryland.  God blessed us a few years later as we moved into our own leased building. As the ministry vision continued to grow, God provided.  We were able to purchase property on Bunker Hill Road, site of our current location.  The building known formerly as The Proctors Inn was transformed into a house of worship.

We have since sold the buildidng to a growing Christian congregation and have moved to an on line ministry with a sunday mornring broadcast. We invite you to join us at 11:00am on Facebook or YouTube for some relevent insighfull instructions. 

We remain a 
Kingdom Minded Ministry; Purposed to Educate, Develop and Impact Lives. 
We desire that people are Liberated, Informed & Empowered by God's Word, to His glory.
