Who We Are

Our Mission

Living Light Christian Church is made up of people with varied backgrounds and experiences who are joined together by the saving work of Jesus Christ. We are passionate worshipers of our great God, who care for one another in a loving community, and live with a common vision for God’s Kingdom and his Church.
Our focus is on an ever-deepening relationship with God, the restoration of the Church and the proclamation of the good news of the Kingdom of God expressed to the whole world. Our mission is three-fold: Worshiping God (Ephesians 3:21), Discipling Believers (Ephesians 4:12-13), and Bringing Good News to the World (2 Corinthians 5:18-20).

Worshipping God

Recognizing that we were created in the image and likeness of God (Genesis 1:26-27), and therefore to show forth His glory in the earth, we’re committed to living lives that demonstrate and declare the wonder of who He is (1 Peter 2:9). The Christian life is to be characterized by constant thanksgiving, praise and worship to God, and that should be no hardship for those who truly realize what He’s done for them and know the reality of a relationship with Him (Matthew 12:34).

We also recognize that worship is much more than a response in song; true worship is the joyful and willing submission of the whole of our lives to God (Romans 12:1-2).

Discipling Believers

The expectation in Living Light is that individually and corporately we’ll be continually growing in our relationship with God, in the undeniable evidence of His work in our lives, and in our fulfillment of everything He’s calling us to do. We’re thankful to Him for providing the Holy Spirit, the Bible and the Church to enable that growth.

In all of this, we are motivated by the exciting prospect of Christ’s return. He will come back for a Bride who has made herself ready (Revelation 19:7) – the mature Church referred to in Ephesians 4:13. That maturity comes about as we all realize who we are in Christ and find where we fit and how we function in His body (Ephesians 4:16). The Church is being made ready for the return of Jesus – what a privilege to be involved in this together!

Bringing Good news

Living Light is made up of people who’ve received and responded in faith to the good news of the Gospel, and who now experience the presence and power of God as a result. Jesus commanded His followers to “ … go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you” (Matthew 28:19-20).

We want to see this commission fulfilled in our families and communities, and across the globe as God leads us and gives us opportunity. This is not a responsibility to be delegated to a select few or to be limited to occasional projects or events – it’s to be a lifestyle for everyone who knows and loves God.

Our Story

Living Light Taunton has a prophetic root. It started in 2003/4 when a small group of people clearly heard the call of God to come to Taunton to be part of a new work.

No one really knew why God led them to Taunton but during the early years of the church, it became clear. God began to show us that He wanted a local church strong in the Word and in the Spirit built on an apostolic and prophetic foundation that would model New Testament church.

Vibrant expression of worship and strong musical gifting is another key characteristic that we are to bring to Taunton. Another reason God brought us here is for the unity and oneness of the whole church in Taunton.

God also spoke to us about a series of lights along the M5 corridor - so far we have gone on to plant churches at God’s prophetic leading in Wellington and Bridgwater.

B1 Churches

We have been heavily involved in the B1 group of churches in the town for many years - in response to Jesus’ prayer in John 17 that ‘we would be one as the Father and Son are One’  - this is why we refer to ourselves as ‘part of the church in Taunton’.
