What we believe
About the Scriptures
We believe the entire Bible is the inspired Word of God and that men were moved by the Spirit of God to write the very words of Scripture. Therefore, we believe the Bible is without error.
We believe in one God who exists in three distinct persons: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. We believe that Jesus Christ is the second member of the Trinity (the Son of God) who became flesh to reveal God to humanity and to become the Savior of the lost world. We believe the Holy Spirit is the third member of the Trinity and He is our source of power to do the works of Jesus, maturity and for conformation into the image of Jesus.
We believe that all people were created in the image of God to have fellowship with Him but became alienated in that relationship through sinful disobedience. As a result, people are incapable of regaining a right relationship with God through their own efforts.
We believe that the blood of Jesus Christ, shed on the cross, provides the sole basis for the forgiveness of sin. Therefore, God freely offers salvation to those who place their faith in the death and resurrection of Christ as sufficient payment for their sin.
About the Christian Life
We believe all Christians should live for Christ and not for themselves. By obedience to the Word of God and daily yielding to the Spirit of God, every believer should mature and be conformed to the image of Christ.
About the Church
We believe that the church is the body of Christ, of which Jesus Christ is the Head. The members of the church are those who have trusted by faith the finished work of Christ. The purpose of the church is to glorify God by loving Him and by making Him known to the lost world.
Since our beginning, we have held to the value that God loves the entire world. Jesus’ final words to His disciples were to make disciples of all nations. Accordingly, Living Hope has and will continue to give away 20% of tithes and offerings to support missionaries from different nations around the world. Additionally, we are continuously involved in special fund raising projects to meet specific needs of our missionaries ministry needs. These type of needs include things like digging fresh water wells, church building projects, orphanage building projects, facility repair and maintenance, the purchase of vehicles and virtually any other kind of need that may come up.
