      LWCF began in the mid 90’s, as a bible study held by several members from different churches and walks of life, seeking God in a greater measure than what religion had shown them.

     Here they began to foster a greater relationship with the Lord, holding firm to the statement made by Jesus in Mark 16:17-18.

Mark 16:17-18 17     And these signs will accompany those who believe: In my name they will drive out demons; they will speak in new tongues; 18 they will pick up snakes with their hands; and when they drink deadly poison, it will not hurt them at all; they will place their hands on sick people, and they will get well.

    Soon enough those bible studies, became much more. Many people, by the power of Jesus Christ, saw deliverance, outpouring of the Holy Spirit, healings, miracles, signs, wonders and visitations from the Lord!

    Since then, L.W.C.F. has grown to become a body of Christ with many facets including community, national, and international outreaches, a center for teaching and deliverance, along with an adult and youth ministry that has gone out to the mission field.    

    Our goal is to equip believers for the effective work of the ministry, by giving them the necessary foundational teachings and guidance in order to maintain a lasting walk with God and to help create a believer who can impact, motivate, and ignite others to do the same, thus spreading and advancing the Kingdom of the Lord.

    All who enter our doors are welcome to come as they are! Allthough, you will not leave the same person. We worship, we pray, we fellowship and we expect God to show up.

EASTER EGG EXTRAVAGANZA – An annual event, held the day before Easter Sunday, in which we take in excess of 20,000 plastic eggs filled with candy and scriptures (along with some special prize eggs the children can redeem for prizes at the prize table) out to a community center for low-income housing and bury them under mounds of hay.

     Many children we have seen since starting this event, have come for years after, and some have even brought their own children back!

     The event starts off with the children hearing the gospel of Jesus Christ, and then the prayer of Salvation is given, many if not all give their lives to the Lord.

     Then when the egg hunt begins, all children (and even some parents) go hunting for both regular and prize eggs! Some children are even lucky enough to find several prize eggs (there are at least 100 prize eggs every year).

     Check out our photo album to see pictures of our egg hunt!
