The Living Streams Seventh-day Adventist Church, located at La Croix in the Marriaqua Valley, was dedicated to the honour and glory of God on Sunday, March 20, 2011.{{more}}

The church started as a result of an Evangelistic crusade which was held in March 2005 in which two hundred and thirty six persons gave their lives to the Lord after five weeks of powerful, penetrating, Pentecostal preaching by the dynamic Evangelist Pastor Claudius Morgan.

The new members opted to remain together for nurturing and conservation. They adopted the name “Living Streams”, which indicates that the church is a viable, moving, living organization, with members coming from a wide cross section of the Marriaqua community.

The group was officially organized into a full fledged church on December 29, 2007, with a charter membership of 152. In August 2009, a parcel of land was purchased on which a permanent church structure was erected, much to the generosity and collective sacrifice of the members and well wishers.

At the dedication ceremony, the laying of the cornerstone and the delivery of the sermon was done by Dr. Eugene Daniel, President of the Caribbean Union Conference of SDA, while the unveiling of a commemorative plaque and the prayer of dedication was done by Pastor Dermoth Baptiste, Coordinator of the St Vincent and the Grenadines Region of SDA. Greetings were given by Girlyn Miguel, Constituency Representative, Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of Education, while brief remarks were presented by Maxwell Charles, Minister of Ecclesiastical Affairs, National Reconciliation, Labour and Information.

The cutting of the ribbon was done by the matriarchs, Jenny Samuel and Sadie Bacchus, while the opening of the main door was done by Bertram Bacchus, the first Elder and chairman of the Building Committee.

The mission of the Living Streams church is to proclaim the good news of salvation to every household within its territory through preaching, teaching, and personal witnessing, thus influencing people from all walks of life to have a viable relationship with the Lord and to be ready to live in His presence.
