Mission & Vision
Enjoying. Encouraging. Evangelizing
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.

Enjoying

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 and to die 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)

Encouraging

As a local community 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)

Evangelizing

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)
