Welcome to Living Waters Christian Fellowship!
Welcome to Living Waters!
It is rather
intimidating to walk into a new place, and especially a new church, for the
first time. Many questions flood our
minds: Where do I park? Where do I enter? Where do I take my kids? What should I wear? What does the worship service consist of and
how long will it last? We would like to
answer some of those questions for you before you walk onto the church campus.
We are located on
Talbert Avenue just west of the Brookhurst/Talbert intersection. You can turn into the first driveway on the
right after the stoplight on Foster/Cashew Street. Our 'guest' and 'families with small children' parking is located in the marked stalls on the first row of the lot.
through the two Worship Center doors on the right side of the building where
you will be greeted by volunteers, typically with a hug or a handshake placing
the monthly bulletin and any other relevant information into your hands. Should you arrive before the services begin,
complementary coffee, water, and donuts are available in our Guest Service
As you enter the Worship Center you will see casually dressed attendees in clothing ranging from
jeans to suit jackets (men), jeans to dresses (women). The music is contemporary – featuring a choir, live
band and vocal team leading the songs. The messages are given by members of our
pastoral staff, utilizing the Bible for practical instruction for living life
victoriously. The length of a normal
service is one hour and thirty minutes.
Once a quarter we
host a Family Service where the entire family is together in the worship
service. These services are energetic
and feature our children, youth, and adults on the stage leading the
service. The message for Family Service
is geared towards our children, yet relatable to the youth and adults, and
typically utilize dramas and illustrations to focus on the topic. Family Service length is about one hour.
We hope this alleviates some of your anxiety about your first visit to Living Waters. We are excited to meet you.
A Place To Connect...
In order to fulfill what Jesus said in Matthew 28:19, "Go therefore and make disciples of all nations..." and learning from the missional church example from Paul in 1 Corinthians 9:19-23, our mission at Living Waters Christian Fellowship is to be a resource to each individual so that we all personally.
We believe in Families: whatever that may look like in your particular family (singles, married - with or without children, single parent, etc.). We committed to walking alongside each person that attends Living Waters helping them navigate through life.
Our theme is based on Mark 8:22-25: - Jesus Heals a Blind Man at Bethsaida
22 They came to Bethsaida, and some people brought a blind man and begged Jesus to touch him. 23 He took the blind man by the hand and led him outside the village. When he had spit on the man’s eyes and put his hands on him, Jesus asked, “Do you see anything?” 24 He looked up and said, “I see people; they look like trees walking around.” 25 Once more Jesus put his hands on the man’s eyes. Then his eyes were opened, his sight was restored, and he saw everything clearly.

Meet Our Team
Fountain Valley Church of God, later renamed Living Waters Christian Fellowship, was established in February of 1973, under the leadership of Pastor Don Miller and his family. The small congregation of twenty-seven met at Faith Lutheran Church in Huntington Beach, California until the spring of 1973, when the congregation purchased and broke ground on this present two-acre site and began construction of the first sanctuary in July of 1974.
In June of 1979, Pastors Dan and Finnabea Moore
accepted the pastorate of Living Waters. Pastor Dan believed that God had given him a
mandate to reach the lost of Orange County committing to excellence and
integrity through Care and Development, Global Evangelism, Christian Education,
and Christ-centered Worship. In 1984,
due to incredible growth, construction began on a larger sanctuary, and in
1992, with over 300 in attendance, construction of an education and office
building began. The congregation
cancelled its debt of approximately $850,000 in 1998. With continued growth, the congregation began
a final construction project on this site, a 2.25-million-dollar reconstruction
of the facilities in January of 2015, creating larger children’s space, larger youth
space, and redesigned office space.
In February of 2017 Pastor Dan Moore assumed a
new role as Pastor Emeritus and on Sunday, February 26, 2017 passed the pastoral
mantle to Pastors Deena and Kevin Querry, installing them as Co-Lead
Pastors. Living Waters reaffirmed its
commitment to be a Family Focused Fellowship by concentrating attention on sharing
the Gospel of Jesus Christ and ministering to the entire family. We believe that every member of the family, no
matter the age, can find and develop a life-changing, Spirit-led personal
relationship with Jesus as Savior and find a place to belong, develop
relationships, connect, and serve.
Since its existence, Living Waters continues the
mandate to connect with the lost and hurting families of Orange County. God continues to breathe new life into the
church. He leads us on an exciting
journey in fulfilling a purpose that will lead us to realize dreams that are beyond our imagination.
