Living Faith Church of the Brethren became an 
official congregation of the Church of the Brethren on 
October 28, 1999.  Living Faith is a result of the merger of the Bachelor Run, Flora, and Pittsburg Churches of the Brethren in Carroll County, Indiana.  

Purpose
To proclaim Jesus Christ, His way of life, 
and His saving power in this community and 
throughout the world.  
The name "Living Faith" speaks to the congregation's desire to live and work in the Spirit of Jesus Christ as it worships, preaches, teaches, evangelizes, and serves.
AFFIRMATION OF FAITH
This congregation:
                                         The Church of the Brethren symbol 
                                    upholds images of life in Jesus Christ

                                     IMAGES TO LIVE BY



The CROSS recalls our baptism into Christ's death and resurrection (Romans 6:4) and testifies to God's plan to bring "all in heaven and earth...into a unity in Christ" (Ephesians 1:10 NEB).

The CIRCLE, partially defined, represents the world into which we are sent by Christ (Matthew 28:19).  The circle also affirms that as members of Christ's body we are members one of another  (Romans 12:5) - a people who confess "one Lord, one faith, one baptism" (Ephesians 4:5).

The WAVE connotes new life in Christ, "born of water and the Spirit" (John 3:5).  The wave further evokes the waters of justice (Amos 5:24), the cup of water offers in Christ's name (Mark 9:41), the basin and towel (John 13:5), and "springs of living water" 
(Revelation 7:17).

Images central to life in Jesus Christ thus are lifted up 
as images by which the Brethren are to live
