affirmation Of faith
We believe in God the Father Almighty, Maker of heaven and earth: and in Jesus Christ, His only begotten Son, our Lord; who was conceived by the Holy Spirit, born of the Virgin Mary, suffered under Pontius Pilate, was crucified, died and buried.
He descended into hell, on the third day He arose again from the dead and ascended into heaven: and sitteth on the right hand of God the Father. From thence, He shall come to judge the living and the dead.
We believe in the Holy Spirit, the Universal Church, the Communion of Saints, the forgiveness of sin, the resurrection of the body and life everlasting.
uniting people To GOD AND PEOPLE TO People
Living Word Christian Fellowship was formed under the unction of the Holy Spirit to exalt the Lordship of Jesus Christ; to provide a medium for people to experience God through wholehearted obedience to the inerrant word of God, the Bible; to further demonstrate our faith by loving one another and forming strong conventional relationships; to identify, nurture and celebrate the ministry gifts of every individual and bring them to maturity in Christ; to extend His kingdom to every sphere of life through the recovery of the arts, sciences, music and drama; and to spread the message of the gospel throughout the world through every available means, thus fulfilling the mandate of the church to make disciples of all nations.
For over 40 years, Bishop Cedric A. Miller has lived by the mantra that, “The Ways of The Lord Are Right”. He has dedicated his life to studying, teaching and preaching the uncompromising Word of God. He is called by God, as a possessor of the five-fold ministry gifts; to reach the lost, minister to the broken hearted and bring liberty to the captive.
At the tender age of eight, Bishop Cedric accepted the Lord as his Savior and developed an insatiable love of the word of God. In his teen years Bishop Cedric was ordained as a minister and began evangelizing throughout the United States preaching everywhere from modest store front churches to large cathedrals and national conventions. He has always been humble in his ability to minister the word of God with such precision and insight beyond his chronological years, relying solely on the Holy Spirit.
At the age of twenty-five, Bishop Cedric yielded to the call of God to the office of pastor and later founded the Living Word Christian Fellowship church in March, 1987. Living Word is a non-denominational Christian church comprised of people from diverse racial, cultural and ethnic backgrounds. Bishop Cedric also founded Living Word Christian Fellowship, Kingston, Living Word Christian Academy, Living Word Child Care Center and Living Word Church of Plainfield, New Jersey.
Bishop Cedric not only has a love for God, but also for education and family. He has earned his Bachelor of Science in Accounting from Trenton State College (currently, The College of New Jersey); Master of Theology as well as a Master of Divinity from King’s Seminary, Van Nuys, California. Bishop Miller’s professional secular employment was that of an accountant, auditor, payroll director, as well as adjunct professor of mathematics at Kean University. Bishop Miller also serves as a professor for Eastern Bible Institute of Irvington, New Jersey as well as Pneuma Life School of Ministry, Rahway, NJ from time to time. Bishop Miller is a staunch supporter of granting scholarships and financial aid to the underprivileged.
As a Chief Shepherd and Overseer, Bishop Miller travels throughout the United States and abroad doing the missionary work of God. He serves as mentor, overseer and the pastoral trainer for sixteen Pastors throughout the country of India including some tribal areas.
Bishop Miller is married to the former Kim Jones for 41 years. Their children are Jazmyne, sons Andrew and his wife Chanel, Garfield and his wife, KaShona, Danielle and her husband Tyree Stokely, Christyn and her husband Fidel Wilson, Victoria and her husband Jason Butcher; ten granddaughters, Paige, Jalynn, Kendall, Lauren, Mikayla, Jade, Jocelyn, Autumn, Mickenzie and Mikenna; four grandsons Xavier, Anderson, Jason Jr., and Jordan Anthony.
Bishop Cedric Miller continues to be a life-giving gift to the body of Christ as he reaches the world through preaching, teaching and “uniting people to God and people to people”.
