Water of Life (WOL) is an approved, allowed and registered NGO through the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the Government of Cambodia. It provides education, medical assistance, life skills and Christian discipleship to over Khmer on a weekly basis. Randy Fleming is the Director, with Cambodian leaders Rith Sang, TongChou Chiu and Channa Bo assisting. The ministry center in Phnom Penh is home to young men between the ages of 14- 25 who needed assistance in life, and resources to complete their education. A house for college age girls to receive college education and/or life skills is also located nearby. The Children of Hope Home also finds its shelter under the wings of Water of Life and is home to about 20 children between the ages of 1-13. Each week the ministry center offers courses in English, computer science and fine arts the students attend in addition to their normal schooling. The classes are open to the community and provide an opportunity for our young men and women to share the love of Jesus with their peers. Our desire is to help people but only Jesus can fill their lives with hope. For that reason, the heartbeat of our ministry is the study of God’s Word. Jesus said, “You shall know the Truth and the Truth shall make you free.” Such has been the impact of God’s Word on our lives here at Water of Life. Each night the ministry center hosts student led Bible studies and worship times. Our boys and girls take turns teaching from passages read in their one-year, daily Bible reading plan. It’s been amazing to see the healing power of God’s Word changing their lives in ways secular programs and counseling could never do. Because of their love for Jesus and desire to serve Him a church has been birthed and many of the students are now serving as children’s ministry workers, worship leaders, youth group leaders, sound technicians and even pastors! The work is now spreading to various provinces and villages as they desire to share the life changing message of the gospel with whoever will listen.

Water of Life –Statement of Faith
WE BELIEVE that there is one living and true God, eternally existing in three persons, the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit, equal in power and glory; that this triune God created all, upholds all, and governs all.
WE BELIEVE that the Scriptures of the Old and New Testaments are the Word of God, fully inspired without error in the original manuscripts, and the infallible rule of faith and practice.
WE BELIEVE in God the Father, an infinite, personal Spirit, perfect in holiness, wisdom, power and love; that He concerns Himself mercifully in the affairs of men, that he hears and answers prayer; and that He saves from sin and death all who come to Him through Jesus Christ.
WE BELIEVE in JESUS CHRIST, God's only begotten Son, conceived by the Holy Spirit. We believe in His virgin birth, sinless life, miracles and teachings, His substitutionary atoning death, bodily resurrection, ascension into heaven, perpetual intercession for His people and personal, visible return to earth.
WE BELIEVE in the Holy Spirit, who came forth from the Father and Son to convict the world of sin, righteousness, and judgment and to regenerate, sanctify and empower for ministry all who believe in Christ; we believe the Holy Spirit indwells every believer in Jesus Christ and that He is an abiding Helper, Teacher and Guide. We believe in the present ministry of the Holy Spirit and in the exercise of all the Bible gifts of the Spirit.
WE BELIEVE that all men are sinners by nature and choice and, therefore, under condemnation, that God regenerates by the Holy Spirit, those who repent of their sins and confess Jesus Christ as Lord; that Jesus Christ baptizes the seeking believer with the Holy Spirit and power for service, often subsequent to regeneration.
WE BELIEVE in the universal Church, that living spiritual body, of which Christ is the Head and all regenerated persons are members.
WE BELIEVE that the Lord Jesus Christ committed two ordinances to the Church; 1) baptism and 2) the Lord's Supper. We believe in baptism by immersion and communion open to all believers.
WE BELIEVE in the personal, visible return of Christ to earth and the establishment of His Kingdom; in the resurrection of the body, the final judgment and eternal blessing of the righteous and endless suffering of the wicked.
WE BELIEVE that the Bible is the inspired Word of God, complete and entire, by which authority is given through the Holy Spirit to test all things to see whether they are of God or not.
(I Corinthians 2:13)
