Searching For God?

God is Searching For You!


"I am come that you might have life and have it MORE ABUNDANTLY!"

- Jesus -

Here's some good news...

There are a lot of ideas, a lot of different conceptions about God. Among them is that God is angry at us. Because of this idea we spend our lives ignoring God, hiding from God, or trying to appease God's anger through good works!

Even when people were ignoring God or hiding from God, the Father was seeking after them. Yahweh revealed Himself to Abraham, Isaac, Jacob, Moses, Joshua, Rahab, Deborah, David, the Hebrew prophets, and many others found in the Scriptures. In fact, you could say that the Bible, the Old and New Testaments, is a recorded history not of man's search for God, but of God's search for mankind! God the Father, Yahweh, revealed more and more of Himself to each generation until Jesus came into the world to show us in the flesh the love of the Father for His children.

In Jesus, the only true God, Yahweh, the Creator, became flesh and lived in the earth as one of us. He did this to show His great love for us. Jesus performed many signs and wonders openly displaying the love of God toward you!

At the last, Jesus was crucified and died, as prophesied in Jewish Scriptures, as the final sacrifice in your place.

But that is not the end of the story. Jesus was raised again from the dead by the work of the Holy Spirit!

Today, right now, Jesus is alive, and He wants to make Himself real to you.

"He who has My commandments and keeps them, it is he who loves Me. And he who loves Me will be loved by My Father, and I will love him and manifest (make Myself real) Myself to him." John 14:21.God loves you so much that even while you rejected and mocked Him, Christ died for you.

"But God, who is rich in mercy, because of His great love with which He loved us, even when we were dead in our trespasses, made us alive together with Christ (by grace you have been saved)," Ephesians 2:4-5.But God didn't stop there! The Bible also says that God made Jesus Christ who knew no sin, to be sin for you, so that you might be made the righteousness of God. ALL of your sin and rebellion, ALL of your hate and bitterness, ALL of your rejection and weaknesses, ALL OF YOUR SIN - PAST, PRESENT, AND FUTURE - WAS LAID ON JESUS! AND ALL OF HIS RIGHTEOUSNESS, HIS RIGHT STANDING BEFORE GOD, WAS GIVEN TO YOU!

Think about this: God is not holding your sin against you! By the sacrifice of Christ, God has forgiven ALL of your sins!

This isn't all! God went one step further. Jesus recieved our sin so we might recieve His righteousness!

"For He made Him who knew no sin to be sin for us, that we might become the righteousness of God in Him,"2 Corinthians 5:21

In Jesus Christ you are the righteousness of God!

The Church with Answers

Teaching the uncompromised word, walking in faith and victory, where excellence is a way of life.

Living Faith is a servant church...

Jesus gave to us what has been called the two greatest commandments of the Bible: First, love the Lord your God with all your heart, soul, mind and strength. Second, love your neighbor even as you love yourself. John wrote that it is impossible to love God whom we have not seen, and hate our brother whom we have seen.

Living Faith is called to love God and to love people! A servant church. We show our love for God in living our love for one another. The Bible says, we, the believer, have been given the ministry of reconciliation. We have been given a ministry to reconcile those who do not know the God's love for them to the God who sent His only begotten Son to die on a cross for them that they might know Him! He became our substitute!

Our mission is to preach this gospel to all creatures!

Living Faith is a family church...

Those who call on Jesus Christ as their Lord and Savior belong to the family of God. This family is made up of all those who believe on Jesus Christ! We are part of a world community set apart by God to proclaim the gospel of Jesus Christ.

We are called to minister to the spirit, soul, and body; we teach husband and wife relationships as well as total family relationships. Our goal is to hold family seminars and family activities; to establish a Christian counseling center for family counseling; to have a Christian school, K-12!

Living Faith is a teaching center...

Jesus commanded his first disciples to teach those after them "to observe all things that I have commanded you." Our desire is to teach what we been have taught. Jesus said it is better to give than to receive.

We teach the uncompromised Word of God; we teach people how to flow in excellence of ministry and in excellence of vision; we train ministers and leaders; we are a unifying force bringing many factions together in Jesus' name; we are a clear voice with a clear message for this day and hour.

We are a church first, and a ministry second; we provide daily teaching of the Word of God; we provide leadership training for church leaders; and we provide seminars with leading Christian authorities!

Anyone may listen to our MP3 teaching ministry and see our printed materials on our SERIOUS STUDY page.


"Bring all the tithes into the storehouse,
That there may be food in My house,
And try Me now in this,
Says the Lord of hosts,
If I will not open for you the windows of heaven
and pour out for you such blessing
That there will not be room enough to receive it."
-- Malachi 3:10

Every church is a storehouse. Churches are to be storehouses physically and spiritually. A storehouse is where people bring their tithes to God so that they can be shared among those who need refreshing! Living Faith Ministries sets aside 10% of our regular giving, i.e. tithes and offerings, toward missions. The following are some of the missions we support:


Regional John Maxwell Chick-fil-A Leadercast Business Conference

National Day of Prayer Coordinators for Mineral County

Angel Tree Ministry with Charles Colson's Prison Fellowship Ministries


Living Faith is a tithing ministry. With our tithes and offerings we are able to support ministries in the United States and throughout the world. This is a partial list of those we have partnered with and support directly with our tithes and offerings.

Haiti Mission Service

Living Faith Ministries has been leading mission teams to Haiti since 1988. We work with Haiti Mission Services which is made up of native Haitian Christian Pastors. I emphasize this because they have no board of "outsiders" supporting them like many other mission outreaches. God meets their needs according to His riches in glory in Christ Jesus!

Pastor Preval Meritil is the President. Haiti Mission Service has churches in Haiti, the Dominican Republic, and in America among the Haitian people.

Living Faith works with Haiti Mission Service to raise funds for their work, networking churches in America with the work in Haiti. Ministering to over 500,000 people, with hundreds of churches across the island they have raised and taught their own pastors. They operate orphanages, schools, food programs, job training, and anything else you can imagine. But most importantly they preach the Gospel of Jesus Christ to a people trapped in voodoo.

Every year around September Living Faith brings Pastor Preval to the states for about three weeks to speak in area churches.

Word Alive Missions
Ghana, Africa

Living Faith Ministries also works with Pastor Charles Nyane of Ghana, Africa. Pastor Charles is a native of Ghana, graduating from a Canadian seminary in 1996 he has returned to Ghana on the Ivory Coast and is building a ministry center to reach his nation. Having found favor with the tribal king, they have establish an orphanage to save many local children. A native custom believes that every 7th child is a cursed child. These children used to be put to death. Pastor Charles encourages the families to give to him their seventh child that they may raise them.

In 2000, Word Alive Ministries started the first accredited nursing school in Ghana whose attendance keeps growing!

Pastor Gordon

Pastor Gordon's strong teaching ministry with its prophetic edge emphasizing ministry to ministers and raising up and teaching leaders in the Body of Christ has taken him to Haiti; Russia; Togo and Ghana, Africa; England; and Israel.

In the summer of 1969, in a college dormitory, Gordon cried out to God and gave his life to Christ. Graduating from Ohio State University in Columbus, Ohio with a Bachelor of Science in Architecture, 1972, Gordon married Debbie and they both became active in their local church serving in a variety of positions. After three years the Lord dramatically called Gordon into His ministry. Receiving a Masters of Divinity from United Theological Seminary in Dayton, Ohio, Gordon has served in the ministry since 1978. On Palm Sunday, April 15, 1984, Pastors Gordon and Debbie started Living Faith Fellowship in Keyser, West Virginia.

With annual mission trips to Haiti since 1988, Pastors Gordon and Debbie have worked with Haiti Mission Service, an organization of native Haitian pastors. Gordon and Debbie and church members make regular trips to Haiti ministering in the churches and conducting pastor conferences. In 1997 Pastor Gordon traveled to Israel with "American Leaders For Middle East Peace" (A.L.F.M.E.P.), meeting with Israeli and Palestinian political and religious leaders. For several years Pastor Gordon hosted the daily "Living Faith" radio broadcast on He's Alive Radio Network and a weekly radio broadcast on WKLP, and has been interviewed on television and radio. Pastor Gordon reaches across denominational lines having served as President of the Keyser Area Ministerial Association (KAMA).

Pastor Debbie

Pastor Debbie ministers in her own right. Gifted with a powerful teaching ministry, Debbie reveals the Word of God in a clear straightforward manner bringing illumination on a personal basis for each individual. Debbie leads the praise and worship team with her ability to sing and play.

Debbie travels with Gordon on mission trips to Haiti on a regular basis. Communicating in Creole she is able to help bridge the language barrier and has developed great friendships among the people of Haiti.
