'Lewende Woord' - Full Gospel Church of God, Parow

'Lewende Woord' is a Word-centred congregation where the Word of God is preached, and Jesus Christ is glorified as the Son of God. Jesus is our Saviour, Lord and soon-coming King.

Our congregation worships the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ through the Spirit. Praise & worship is important to us as it is a means by which we enter and experience the presence of God.
