Who We Are
At Livingway our purpose is to lead you into a relationship with God and with others. We strive to cultivate a life-changing, life-giving atmosphere that surrounds you with the presence of God and the love of community. We believe each worship experience is a chance for you to encounter Jesus and take your “Next Step” in life with Christ. Our goal is to give you the opportunity to Know God, Find Freedom, Discover Purpose, and Make a Difference.
The saving gospel is the good news that Jesus died for our sins, was buried, and rose again. We obey the gospel (II Thessalonians 1:8; I Peter 4:17) by repentance (death to sin), water baptism in the name of Jesus Christ (burial), and the baptism of the Holy Spirit with the initial sign of speaking in tongues as the Spirit gives the utterance (resurrection). (See I Corinthians 15:1-4; Acts 2:4, 37-39; Romans 6:3-4.)
Lead Pastor Brent Keating
Brent and Cyndy Keating moved to Lake Charles and became the lead pastors of Livingway Pentecostal Church in March of 2019 with their two children Dallas and Baleigh. They have lived a life devoted to God’s kingdom and have been in ministry for over 25 years. Their heart for God is evident in their passion for people and service which overflows into their vision for Livingway and our community.
Bishop C.R. and JoAnn Nugent
Bishop Nugent and his wife JoAnn served as the lead pastors of Livingway for over 30 years before retiring and continuing their ministry as our Bishop. He is a natural-born leader who has always been ahead of his time. Anytime you hear the bishop speak, you will leave motivated, inspired, and laughing.
