About us

who WE ARE:

Here at Word Alive Church, you will find a group of diverse people who are excited to know the Word of God as it is alive and relevant to their life today! With over 35 years of full time ministry experience, our Lead Pastor, Mark Di Bernardo, is well recognized by other pastors and leaders in the valley as an elder statesman for the Gospel ministry in the state of Arizona.  We are a people with a vision for our community, our state and beyond with the life-changing good news of Jesus Christ.  Our vision includes the completion of our new sanctuary on our property, expanding our preschool and after school care, opening up a North valley campus and world-wide mission trips and more! 

where we meet:

COVID19 UPDATE: We are currently meeting outdoors at our covered stage and seating area. If you prefer to drive up and park and listen, you can do that! 

We meet Sundays at 10:30 am! 

Our congregation owns three acres of land on Val Vista South of Warner. This property is home to a thriving preschool, Great Start Preschool & Daycare, Inc. We are building a large new sanctuary on this property with construction beginning soon! In the meantime we are meeting inside of Great Start Preschool on our property.  If you need quality Christian childcare, check out Great Start. We offer a 10% discount on childcare to all church members. 

what to expect:

Feel free to wear whatever you feel most comfortable in! Most people wear jeans and a nice shirt. We suggest that you come a few minutes early, so we can meet you and chat. The service begins at 10am, with our worship team leading contemporary praise and worship songs, followed by a message from the Bible that is normally about 30 minutes long.

A nursery is available for younger children aged 0-4 fifteen minutes before the service begins. Feel free to drop your little ones off before worship. We encourage the children ages 5 and up and youth to worship along with the adults in the main service. Children and youth aged 5 and up will be dismissed after the worship.  The pastor then shares their sermon to the congregation which is always relevant and full of sound Biblical principles that are life changing. After the service, there is an opportunity for personal ministry and prayer by the designated prayer team and pastoral staff.



what we believe:

Word Alive is a non-denominational, Spirit-filled, Bible-based Christian church. Simply put, Word Alive believes what the Bible teaches and that the Holy Bible, in its original Hebrew and Greek format, is the perfect Word of God which is incorruptible, infallible, completely and totally without error. We should love the Lord with all our heart, soul and mind, and also love our neighbor as we love ourself. The only way to Heaven and the Father is through accepting His Son, Jesus Christ, who died for the sins of all mankind and on the third day rose from the dead and is now seated at the right hand of the Father.

We believe that Jesus is still changing lives and bringing people into a new life through Him. This new life is one that is more fulfilling, meaningful and successful than a life without Him.

We exist to provide a place for people of all ages, races and backgrounds to establish a more fulfilling life in Christ and experience an existence full of rich, loving and lasting relationships.
