Inviting Churches to Link Arms, Grow Disciples, and Meet Needs
We invite you to join us on a journey to grow disciples and solve the global water crisis as the body of Christ. Our unity, action, and compassion will be a powerful testimony to a thirsty world. Begin by engaging your congregation on a journey of discipleship and service:
Grow In Knowledge
Living Water offers resources to help church members expand their spiritual insight and understanding of God’s work in the world. Through these resources, individuals can develop a love of mercy and justice, and a heart for seeing God’s kingdom come, on earth as it is in heaven.
Hearing the word of God brings people to faith; experiencing God in action deepens that faith, attracts the seeker, and helps grow discipleship opportunities for all. Through Living Water, congregations can participate in the global body of Christ in ways that give tangible expression to the gospel and help believers grow in faith.
GET ACTIVE IN THESE WAYS
Transform your Christmas with Advent Conspiracy, as an individual or get your whole church engaged
Christ tells us whenever you care for the least of these, you care for him. To make this work possible, the global body of Christ needs the financial investment of those who have been blessed with surplus resources. Whether you can give a small monthly gift, sponsor a water project, or enable an entire WASH Program Area, you’ll know your financial contribution is making a significant impact by proclaiming the gospel in word and deed.
Giving communities access to clean water through local churches has a physical multiplier effect, advancing the community overall. Clean water improves health, keeps kids in schools, enables women and girls, and helps eliminate deaths from water-related illnesses. Plus, clean water raises the economic prospects of communities. For every $1 invested in water, sanitation, and hygiene, there are $4.30 in economic returns, according to the World Health Organization. Over 6.4 million people have received access to safe water and experienced living water, the gospel of Jesus Christ, through Living Water and our partnership with the church over the last thirty years.
Our donor churches say they select Living Water as a missions partner for many reasons. Most often, we hear four explanations:
Fulfilling the Great Commission:
Partnering with other churches through Living Water extends the church’s ability to “go and make disciples” at home and around the world.
Living Out the Great Commandment:
Living Water helps the church to “love your neighbor as yourself” by meeting physical needs.
Helping the Church be Relevant & Engaged:
Pastors tell us that when church members get involved with meeting real needs through Living Water's support and encouragement, they come alive as they experience the relevance and unity of the Church.
Missions pastors appreciate our turnkey solutions for service trips and activities that help congregants expand their experience and grow in knowledge.
Living Water currently works along the Pacific coast of Guatemala. Team members will use an LS300 or a LS400 drill rig with our in-country drillers and help our hygiene team share proper sanitation techniques and Bible stories. You’ll get to experience the rich Guatemalan culture in Antigua, including a coffee plantation tour and Cerro de la Cruz—a beautiful cross set on a hill.
