About Erin Campbell


Erin Campbell  –  Bio
As an atheist for 30 years, many tried to debate Erin into faith with clever formulas, quick wit, logic, and promises, but to no avail.  Her salvation ultimately came when a street-corner evangelist on Bourbon Street at 3:00am showed her something dramatically different than the rest… Jesus Himself.  Watch reenactment
Erin fell madly in love with Jesus Christ in 1993, and just one month following Erin’s dramatic salvation, the Lord brought Matt and Erin together to meet and become husband and wife.  They married in December 1995.
Earning a Bachelors of Science Degree in Computer Science and Philosophy and building a solid career in corporate America, Erin and Matt were both called by God in 2001 to willingly walk away from their lucrative jobs, sell their homes and investments, give away luxury vehicles, valuables and other worldly attachments in order to move to the inner city and turn their lives completely over as bondservants of Jesus Christ.
For 14 years, Erin has  served in full-time ministry in many venues, beginning with  broadcasting. Starting out on a local 1,000 watt station in 2004, Erin persevered through false starts and no money.  But God’s hand was on the message with Water through the Word RADIO and grew the show to national syndication; spreading the Gospel of Jesus Christ to over 23.7 million listeners each week with real-life testimonies.  Guests included:  Anne Graham Lotz, Christine Caine, Joyce Meyer, Pricilla Shirer, Carol Kent, Comedian Chonda Pierce, Actor Stephen Baldwin, Supermodel Kim Alexis, and Jennifer O’Neal;  Best-Selling Authors Liz Curtis Higgs, Laurie Beth Jones, etc.  Recording Artists Ginny Owens, etc. and many others.    
As a full-time conference speaker and Bible teacher, Erin traveled extensively [48 out of 52 weeks] each year with Matt presenting at conferences, weekend retreats, and in pulpits on Sunday mornings.  Erin has shared the platform with many Bible teachers throughout the years, including; Beth Moore at her recent Living Proof LIVE conferences and telecasts.
Erin has written and recorded dozens Deeper Living Discipleship courses and series, including:
  • Hidden Agendas: Boldly Facing Life’s Hidden Traps
  • Forbidden Fruit: Taking the Bite out of Temptation
  • Authentic Faith: Dealing with Life’s Difficulties
  • Radically Undone: Restoring Lost Authority
  • Becoming a Captivating Woman: A Weekend Retreat

Today, Matt and Erin feel God’s call to remain at home and share their lives closely with others.  Many years, many miles, and many friends were accumulated, but they feel God has shifted their focus and time to family and grandchildren, building a ministry team, and discipling believers who are serious about deepening their faith and preparing the way in the days ahead.  They are more in love and committed to the cause of Christ than ever before.

The new Deeper Living Center for Biblical Studies was opened in 2015 to facilitate classes, prayer, worship concerts, special events, and much more.   The public is welcome to join the entire Water through the Word Ministry team at the Deeper Living Center located in Cincinnati, Ohio.

Statement of Faith

The Scriptures: We believe the Bible to be the inspired Word of God, holy and without error in the original writings. And that both the Old and New Testament’s Scriptures are the complete and sufficient revelation of His will for man’s salvation and conduct; the supreme and final authority for faith and life.

The Godhead: We believe in one God, Creator of all things, indefinitely perfect and eternally existing in three persons — Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.

The Lord Jesus Christ: We believe Jesus Christ is God, the Living Word, who became flesh through His miraculous conception by the Holy Spirit and His virgin birth. He led a sinless life, took upon Himself all of our sins on the cross, died and rose again, and is seated at the right hand of the Father as our mediator and advocate.

The Holy Spirit: We believe that the ministry of the Holy Spirit is to reveal and glorify Christ and to apply the saving work of Jesus Christ to mankind. That the Holy Spirit indwells each born again believer to regenerate, convict, teach, seal, equip, and to empower us to live an obedient life, according to the will of our Heavenly Father.

Man: We believe that man was created in the image of God but fell into sin and is, therefore, lost, and only through regeneration of the Holy Spirit can salvation and spiritual life be obtained.

Salvation: We believe that salvation, is by grace, a free gift of God apart from works; through the shed blood of Jesus Christ. His sacrifice on the cross and His resurrection provide the only ground for justification and salvation for all who believe. Those who believe, receive Jesus and are born of the Holy Spirit, thus becoming children of God with eternal life.

The Church: We believe in the spiritual unity of all believers in Christ and that the Church, the Body of Christ, is God’s institution, of which He is the Head.

Christ’s Return: We believe in the personal and imminent coming of our Lord Jesus Christ and that this “Blessed Hope” has a vital bearing on the personal life and service of the believer.
