  • Prayer is the essential foundation for all effective ministry.

  • Lost People matter to God and must matter to His church.

  • God's truth must be communicated with doctrinal integrity and cultural relevance.

  • Authentic and loving relationships are essential to spiritual growth and should permeate every aspect of church life.

  • God has called every Christian to utilize his/her gift(s) in ministry.

  • The church most visibly evidences the love of Christ by ministering with compassion and care to the poor, sick hurting, lonely, rejected, and forgotten people of the world.

  • Uplifting Attitude: We keep a positive focus and hopeful outlook because nothing is impossible for God.

  • Applaud Meaningful Measurement: At Living Hope you are not just a cog in the wheel. You are a vital part of adding peace, joy and meaning in people's lives.

  • Give Personal Attention: We don't simply care about what you can accomplish, we care about you as an individual.
