About

Pastor Joel and MaryAnne Sadaphal

What a joy it is to introduce you to our church! You’ll discover that our passion is to provide a place where people just like you can have a life-changing experience with God. We are an evangelistic, Spirit-empowered church in NYC metropolitan area.

At LIVING WORD, our doors are wide open to people from all backgrounds, regardless of where they are on their spiritual journey. What people usually notice first about us is the life-giving nature of our ministry. Our goal is to infuse life and God’s love into people and families through engaging, powerful worship services that offer biblical truth in relevant and practical ways.

But it won’t take you long to discover that we’re more than just a Sunday church. We desire that no one ever feels like just a face in the crowd. Because of that, we offer several small groups, which we call Life Groups throughout the year. If you ’d like to develop authentic and enduring relationships with others, you’ll be glad to know there are several opportunities to join a Life Group.

Together, we’re striving to become the kind of church described in the Bible, where there’s relevant teaching, heartfelt worship, honest friendships, constant prayer, and compassionate care for those in need. In short, we’d like to have the kind of contagious Christianity that can influence and encourage the entire community one life at a time.

So whether you’re a spiritual seeker who’s just starting to ask questions about God, or a committed Christian who wants to sink the roots of your faith even deeper, you can find a home here at LIVING WORD.

I invite you to worship with us this Sunday! In the meantime, hopefully you’ll find everything you need right here to get connected to LIVING WORD. Additional information can also be found in the Common Questions section. If not give us a call, someone from our team will love to chat with you. Enjoy!
