I have been thinking of going to the Living Word of God church in Burkesville and I was just wondering what their beliefs are. Anyone have any information on this?

I dont know anything about the church but I have heard they do some weird stuff I mean in their everyday life. If some of what I have heard is true its dicussing and shouldn't be aloud.

Why ask the people on this forum? Why don't you just go and talk to Pastor Gary, he will tell you straight, like it or leave it.

If you visit their website, it clearly states they believe in speaking in tongues. A very common scripture used to validate speaking in tongues is Mark 16:17, which says (in NIV) "And these signs will accompany those who believe: In my name they will drive out demos; they will speak in new tongues." The next following verses talk of drinking poison, and taking up serpents (common ordinances found in various churches, especially in eastern and southern Kentucky).
The book of Mark found as a part of the Dead Sea Scrolls. The particular scroll was dated to be approximately 200 years older than the book of Mark that was used when the current Christian Bible was canonized. The last 3 verses of Mark (17-20) were not part of the older, original version of Mark. As a matter of fact, if you look VERY closely at the syntax, wordage, and diction used in the last few verses of Mark, they do not match up properly with the rest of the book.
Hence from this, one can easily determine that the last several verses were added by someone, long after Mark was dead, and are not part of the original book.
I say all that to say that this most commonly used verse to verify the scriptural support of speaking in tongues (as well as taking of poison, and taking up of serpents) is in fact NOT scripturally supported, and is therefore not to be considered an appropriate ordinance, or spiritual "gift".
This is my interpretation of it anyway. You can judge for yourself, but it has been proven by ALL of the Dead Sea Scroll scholars that the verses of Mark 16:17-20 were not part of the original book of Mark.

Well I dont go to their church, I have no desire to. However I will say that pastor Gary spoke at my mothers funeral (she was a member there at that church) it was without a doubt amazing there was no feeling you were in church and that someone was preaching at you. It was all truly about celebrating her life and how amazing she was. He is a wonderful speaker.

What you gonna do with Isaiah 28: 11 that says "with stammering lips and another tongue will I speak to this people". Gonna say that prophecy isn't in original book?

We love Pastor Gary and his family at Living Word Ministries in Burkesville. They are dedicated to God and worship. Pastor Gary is a great preacher and my husband and I have been there on Sundays when everyone in the congregation really doesn't want the service to end. You can feel the Spirit there.

So, if you're looking for a "spirit filled" church then go to Living Word; if not find another good church. We sing worship songs and praise our Lord for about 1&1/2 hours and then Pastor Gary delivers a good message and there is always an invitation given for souls to be saved. We are thankful and feel blessed to have found such a good church with a GREAT Pastor and just good fellowship. People there are kind and caring. Pastor Gary is involved in his community as well.

If you are really seeking God, keep your eyes on God. Don't let what others say cause you to go in a different direction. Just think, if you keep your eyes on God, then you won't have time to tear others down or listen to senseless gossip.

The few times that I have had contact with the church or church members proved to me that they are very cold and rude. Did not feel any "Spirit Filled" atmosphere at all. As the name says, only "My Opinion".
