The Word Church

Worship Location: 44190 Waxpool Road Suite 152 Ashburn, VA 20147

The Word Church was birthed out of the vision of two Pastors, Rev. Dr. Randy M. Haynes and Pastor Tony Ray Smith, with two separate and distinct churches to do more together for the Kingdom of God. Open the Book Ministries and The Empowerment Church first joined in partnership by sharing a worship location beginning in November of 2015. Upon the announcement of Rev. Dr. Haynes' retirement, a prayerful decision was made to merge both churches and hold one worship service starting in March 2016 with the anticipation of a new ministry commencing in January 2017. Relationships grew and God was truly glorified as OTB/TEC became one body during those nine months of worship and fellowship.

Mission: The mission of The Word Church is to lead people into becoming "Active Believers."

The "Kings Table" Fellowship is happening this weekend. Have you registered yet? Please let us know that you are coming. We want to be prepared for your presence at the Table with other Kings. Http://

[12/13/19]   Journey through Luke to Christmas

Today's reading is: Luke Chapter 13
This Chapter of Luke is jam-packed with one of Jesus’s most recognizable forms of teachings; Parables. Parables are earthly stories told to teach a heavenly or spiritual truth. For the sake oof brevity I picked one of the parables in Chapter 13 and have provided a few observations.
The Disabled Woman –Luke 13:10-17
• This scripture is one of many accounts that could be called “Kingdom Reversals” (Luke 13:1 – 14:24)
• Jesus teaching in in a synagogue on the Sabbath, encounters a woman who had been disabled by a spirit for 18 years.
• We learn 5 things from reading these verses about her healing.
1. Her Life
 She was a faithful Jew (Daughter of Abraham)
 Lived in region of Perea
 Attended the Synagogue on the Sabbath
2. Her Illness
 Disabled 18yrs by a spirit
 Back issue (Bent over and couldn’t Straighten up)
3. Her Healing
 Jesus laid hands on her
 Her health was restored
 She Glorified God
4. Her Challenge
 She was bound by Satan for 18 years
 Religious leaders criticized Jesus for healing on the sabbath
5. Her Redeemer
 Jesus humiliated thehypocritical religious leader using a parable
 Jesus restored her health.
In the service of God We are going to bound by some things (sometimes we fight through years of struggle), People are going criticize you and those who try to come to you aid. How will you respond to the attacks and the critics? Will you always remember to point the Glory to God?
