WHAT WE BELIEVE

WE BELIEVE God is one God in three persons: The Father, Son and Holy Spirit.

WE BELIEVE the Bible is the Word of God and is the foundation for our faith and for our lives.

WE BELIEVE God wants to have a relationship with us, and that He sent His Son Jesus Christ to live and die and rise again, so that we might have new life in Him.

WE BELIEVE sin is disobeying God’s law and living outside of God’s will. The only way to escape the punishment we deserve is to accept Jesus Christ as Savior and Lord.

WE BELIEVE salvation is by grace: it is a gift from God, not because of our works, but freely given by Him.

WE BELIEVE God calls us to live in the world, not to conform to the world, but to be His agents to bring the message of change and transformation to all areas of life.

WE BELIEVE our only comfort in life and in death is to belong to our faithful Savior Jesus Christ.


OUR CORE VALUES



Be Real

We encourage one another to be real. We want to create an authentic environment where people don’t feel the need to wear masks.




Be Free

We desire to create a space where each individual can worship God freely.



Be United

We are a diverse body of believers, but we remain united in Jesus. We join together to lift high the name of Jesus in our community.



Be Involved

We believe that an involved church is a healthy church. We encourage all to use their God given gifts to serve Living Hope Community Church.


OUR THEOLOGY

Our ability to grow together as a church stems from what we hold central—Jesus and our commitment to the biblical narrative. By the grace of God, this story becomes our story and we perpetuate it by the power of the Holy Spirit, as we serve our local and global community, and invite others to participate in this pursuit of Jesus together.

Demonstrating a harmony of both orthodoxy [right thinking] and orthopraxy [right living/practice], this narrative seeks to not only guide our thoughts and minds, but the way we live our lives. To highlight these key themes in the biblical narrative and offer direct insight into the theology that is central to our teaching, leadership, and ministries, we have provided key topics, themes and theology for you to explore so that you can dive deeper into learning about what we believe here at Living Hope Community Church.
