Church History

The Lively Stone Church was born in 1986 as a result of God's instructions to the Pastor and founder, Pastor Ronald David Smith.  The church he envisioned had Christ as its Head, Evangelism as its goal, Truth as its foundation, and Love as its mantraA group of approximately 25 saints, with their children, were the first to rally to the call from Pastor Smith. They were characterized by their Love for others and commitment to serving the Lord, by serving those inside and outside the Kingdom

We are part of the Pentecostal Assemblies of the World, Inc., an enduring Pentecostal Organization which embraced a wide spectrum of churches in the 1910's. The PAW Organization adheres to Apostolic Doctrine, and was among the first in North America to embrace The Oneness Doctrine, baptizing in the name of Jesus. We are active participants in the Texas State Council of the PAW, Inc.

The Lively Stone Church has served communities on the east and west sides of San Antonio, Texas.  Auxiliaries that include Christian Education, Women of Excellence, Ministers and Deacons Wives, BrotherHood, Youth Ministry, Music Ministry (Choir), and Evangelism are rounded out by Praise Dancers, Ushers and other ministries of help to undergird and support the Pastor and his Ministry Team. We are striving to fulfill the VISION until JESUS returns for a GLORIOUS CHURCH without Spot or wrinkle.
