Mission & Vision
Enjoying. Encouraging. Evangelizing

Though we are a church plant, at the top of our list of priorities is taking our place in God’s plan to advance the gospel throughout all nations.

Here’s how we are involved:

  • We partner with our denomination as we sacrificially and strategically support local churches across the world. Find more information here.
  • We financially and prayerfully support the Pannell family. Josh Pannell is the Dean of the Pastor’s College in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia, which seeks to train local pastors for the work of the ministry.

Living Hope Church exists to Passionately pursue Christ and his mission of making disciples.

The three ways in which the church practically embodies this mission is by: Enjoying, Encouraging, and Evangelizing.


Jesus is the Lord and King over all of His creation. He became a human being to live the perfect life God requires of all people. He died the sacrificial death that all people deserve due to their sin against God so that those who trust in Him as their Savior could be redeemed and reconciled to God.
As a church, we exist to Enjoy Him through:

• Delighting joyfully in the gospel (1 Cor. 15:1–4)
• Preaching the Bible expositionally (2 Tim. 3:14–17)
• Singing Christ-exalting songs (Col. 3:16)
• Praying faithfully and fervently (Eph. 6:18–20)
• Pursuing personal holiness (1 Pet. 1:15–16)


As a local community of Jesus’ disciples who have been redeemed and brought into the family of God (Eph. 1:5), we gather together often to celebrate Jesus through and encourage one another by:

• Receiving the sacraments (1 Cor. 11:24; Matt. 28:19)
• Participating in biblical fellowship (Acts 2:42; Heb. 10:24-25)
• Serving one another sacrificially (Rom. 12:13)
• Practicing the spiritual gifts (Rom. 12:6; 1 Cor. 12:7; 14:1)
• Giving joyfully of our finances (2 Cor. 9:7; Prov. 3:9)
•Equipping the saints for the work of ministry (Eph. 4:12)
• Developing faithful leaders (2 Tim. 2:2)


As a local community of Jesus’ disciples who desire to obey the Great Commission (Matt. 28:19-20), we display His love to our neighbors through:

• Cultivating relationships with them (Gal. 5:14; Rom. 15:2)
• Proclaiming the gospel to them (Matt. 28:19; Ps. 105:1)
• Engaging the brokenness of our city (Jer. 29:7; Deut. 15:10-11)
• Planting churches (Acts 1-28)
• Supporting local and global missions (Phil 4:16-18)
