About Living Water Community Christian Fellowship
Our Church

Living Water is a welcoming, accepting, caring, multigenerational, family-oriented congregation of about 100-120. We are a Bible-believing, evangelical-Anabaptist, charismatic church with a strong Mennonite background. Attributes of a Biblical church most strongly demonstrated at Living Water include worship, fellowship, discipleship, ministry and outreach events. Our prayer is to continue to grow in these areas as we attempt to follow and imitate Jesus' life and teachings.

Our Community

  We are located in New Hamburg, Ontario which is a picturesque town built on the banks of the mighty Nith River, midway between Kitchener/Waterloo and Stratford.  There are three public schools and a High school right in our  community, as well as some restaurants and a few parks. New Hamburg is just fifteen minutes from

Kitchener-Waterloo but still has a great small-town feel and has all of the amenities that you might need right in town.

Our Mission

Living Water exists to equip and inspire people to come to a saving knowledge of God.  Our goal is to follow Him and worship Him with our whole lives and show all those around us the love of Jesus. We believe Jesus' words from

 John 14:6 “I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one can come to the Father except through me.”  still apply today.  These words are a cornerstone of our church life and ministry.

Our Purpose

To create a culture of disciple-makers who bring God's love to life by living and loving like Jesus did, and helping others to do the same.

Our Vision

Connecting with God’s family through fellowship
Celebrating God’s presence through worship
Demonstrating God’s love through ministry
Educating God’s people through discipleship
Communicating God’s Word through evangelism
