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.
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.
Bishop Cedric A. Miller
Bishop Cedric A. Miller, a maverick in his own right, is anointed, radical and determined. He is called by God, as a possessor of the five-fold ministry gifts; to reach the lost, minister to the brokenhearted and bring liberty to the captive.
At the tender age of eight, Cedric accepted the Lord as his Savior and developed an insatiable love of the word of God. In his teen years 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, 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. Pastor Cedric also founded Living Word Christian Fellowship, Kingston, Living Word Christian Academy, Living Word Child Care Center, Living Word Community Development Corporation 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; Masters of Theology as well as a Masters of Divinity from King’s Seminary, Van Nuys, California. Pastor Miller’s professional secular employment was that of an accountant, auditor, payroll director, realtor, as well as adjunct professor of mathematics at Kean University. Bishop-Elect Miller is currently a professor for Eastern Bible Institute of Irvington, New Jersey as well as Pneuma Life School of Ministry, Rahway, NJ.
On November 21, 2021, Bishop Eric Kincaid Clark of Cleveland, Ohio announced the nomination of Pastor Cedric A. Miller to be elevated and consecrated to the office of Bishop in the Lord's Church in the year of 2022.
Bishop Miller is married to the former Kim Jones for 40 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 his preaching and “uniting people to God and people to people”.
