Living Word International Christian Church

  (Redirected from Immanuel's Church)

Living Word International Christian Church (formerly Immanuel's Church) is a multi-ethnic, conservative, evangelical, interdenominational church located in Silver Spring, Maryland. Established by Charles and Dotty Schmitt in 1982, the church is a large congregation. Living Word is a vigorous advocate for the traditional covenant of marriage.[1]



Founded in 1982, the church has been progressively reaching out to international communities from all walks of life. Focused on equipping the congregants with the Living Word and its application, the church is focused on being a light in the community around them, and the many countries reached through their various missions and outreach endeavors.

While in the original building, the church grew from 400 to 1500. Then in 1996, after a three-year building project, the new worship and ministry center was expanded from 20,000 square feet to 120,000 square feet.[citation needed] The church's attendance is currently estimated at 1000.

The interim pastors here are Michael and Becki McDermott.[2][3]
