"To reach the world for Jesus Christ" completes the mission statement for Living Hope Church, and since our inception it has been part of who we are. You could say that "seeing all nations worship" is part of our DNA ~ the glorification of Jesus in the world, along with a partnership with His Holy Spirit to see people (and nations) come to faith in Him.
We are excited to announce this year's Missions Week, and the theme "Welcoming". Our prayer is that you would personally hear from the Lord during this week-long celebration, as we grow close to Him in worship, Bible study and active service. Just as as Isaiah "saw the Lord" and responded with total surrender to the call of God, perhaps you too will see the glory of God, be awakened to the lostness around you, and be about welcoming those who haven't yet found their way home.
