VISION & MISSION

OUR VISION

At Living Hope, we are committed to communicating the good news of Jesus Christ to people of every generation. We seek to personally and effectively communicate the love of Christ in Sunday School, youth group, small groups, Bible studies and worship. We believe every person must personally respond to the offer of Jesus to “follow me.”

 

Many people have made a commitment to Christ in the past and either drifted away, or in some cases been driven away from Christ’s church. Some were turned away by overzealous Christians. Some have become uncomfortable in church because of their own choices. At Living Hope, we believe that every person can begin again, and seek to be a great place to start over for those in need of healing and restoration.

 

2 Corinthians 5:17-20 says, “Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; the old has gone, the new has come! All this is from God, who reconciled us to himself through Christ and gave us the ministry of reconciliation: that God was reconciling the world to himself in Christ, not counting men’s sins against them. And he has committed to us the message of reconciliation. We are therefore Christ’s ambassadors, as though God were making his appeal through us. We implore you on Christ’s behalf: Be reconciled to God.” (NIV)

OUR MISSION

Our mission is to be a congregation committed to ushering people of every background into a positive, authentic relationship with Jesus Christ and His church.

 

We do this by creating opportunities for spiritually hungry people to:

– submit to Jesus Christ
– grow in faith in the context of open-mindedness
– experience understandable and authentic worship
– serve and grow in meaningful, unified relationships with other Christians
