ABOUT THE CHURCH

Living Hope Community Church strives to be a community of faith that personifies the love and forgiveness of Christ. By living out the story of Jesus through relationships with our community, we believe that faith, hope, comfort and wholeness can be found.

Our Mission Statement is:

“Making Christ and His Word Real
To Our Community
Through Love And Service.”

We believe the kingdom of God is made up of believers from many traditions and denominational backgrounds who express and worship God in their own unique way.

WHAT WE BELIEVE

We believe in one God, revealed as Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.

Deuteronomy 6:4, II Corinthians 13:14, John 1:1

We believe that our Lord Jesus Christ was begotten, not created, very God of very God, truly God, truly Man. He was born of the Virgin Mary, lived a sinless life, died a vicarious and atoning death for the sins of the world, resurrected bodily for our justification, and now reigns in glory until all things be put under His feet.

I Timothy 3:16

We believe that the Holy Spirit indwells all believers, conforming them to the image of Jesus Christ.

I Corinthians 12:13, Romans 8:16-17

We believe that the baptism in the Holy Spirit is an endowment of power, subsequent to conversion, given by God to anoint the believer for sanctification and evangelism. It is our understanding that the supernatural gifts of the Holy Spirit are active within the body of Christ until the coming of the Lord. Furthermore, we believe the development of these charismatic gifts ought to be encouraged under the guidance of local church authorities.

Acts 8:14-17, Acts 19:1-2, I Corinthians 12:4-7

We believe that man was made in the image of God and is the crown of creation. He is now, by reason of the fall, spiritually depraved and alienated from His Creator. Apart from God’s grace, he has no ability to attain to his high calling.

Psalm 8, Ephesians 2:8-9

We believe in the absolute inspiration of the Holy Scriptures, given by the Holy Spirit without error, as He moved upon holy men of old. Furthermore, we believe that the Church has no authority to establish doctrine or practice contrarily to these same Scriptures, which were subsequently accepted as canon by the early Christian Church.

II Timothy 3:16

We believe in the Christian Church imperfectly represented on earth by the various Christian institutions. Her unity is spiritual, her culture diverse and transitional, her mission eternal.

Hebrews 12:18-23

We believe that justification is by grace through faith in our Lord’s sacrifice on Calvary.

Romans 3:21-24

We believe that all of God’s people are to be buried with our Lord Jesus Christ in the waters of baptism, subsequent to conversion.

Matthew 28:19, Acts 2:38, Romans 6:4
