Who We Are

We are a full gospel, Bible believing, Pentecostal, family-oriented church. We belong to the family of Open Bible Churches, distributed in over 40 countries of the world, with headquarters in Des Moines, IA.

Our Roots

Living Word Open Bible Church was established by founding Pastors Karl & Dyrie Francis, on April 11, 1993, in the City of Pembroke Pines, Florida. From the outset Bible teaching, prayer, and the family were important core values. After six years of constant growth, the church relocated to a beautiful 10 acre ministry campus in CooperCity, which God miraculously provided. The church community is dynamic, with a rich blend of cultures, a multiplicity of families, gifted and energetic children and youth.
