Our Story

How it all started...

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.

Expanding the vision...

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.

Where we are headed...

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.
