"Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who according to His great mercy has caused us to be born again to a living hope through the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead, to obtain an inheritance which is imperishable and undefiled and will not fade away, reserved in heaven for you, who are protected by the power of God through faith for a salvation ready to be revealed in the last time."
- 1 Peter 1:3-5
Our Name is Living Hope International Ministries. As Christians we are to have a living hope to anchor our souls and motivate us towards obedience until the kingdom comes.
Our Purpose is to glorify God. Humankind was created to glorify God. Thus, everything that is done by this ministry falls in line with the ultimate goal of giving praise to our Creator. We worship the Father, Yahweh, as the one true God and desire to facilitate corporate and individual worship through our ministry.
Our Mission is to evangelize and disciple all who are willing. Since we believe that the gospel is necessary for salvation, we are dedicated to preaching the life-saving gospel of the kingdom and the cross. In addition, we are committed to developing Christians by the process of discipling in an effort to help people to live a holy life (following the commands of Christ).
Our motivation is the love of God. The most important thing is to love God with everything and then to love others as Christ loved. This transcendent divine love was demonstrated when God sent His own son to die for our sins. Our Heavenly Father's love for us melts our hearts to such a degree that we want to share this love with others. He loved us so we love others.
Our goal is to help as many people as possible to enter the kingdom of God. According to one of the songs recorded in Revelation, the kingdom will be a place on earth full of people from every tribe, and language, and people, and nation. We want to reach out to as many as possible and help them to enter this glorious kingdom through our ministry.
We function as the family of God. Every single member of the family of God is important. God is our Father and we are all brothers and sisters of His son Christ Jesus. Everyone is uniquely equipped to play a role in the family. No one is expendable, we are in this together, and we need to stick together through fellowship if we are going to remain faithful until the end.
Living Hope International Ministries provides many services to the believer including Teaching, Counseling, and Fellowship.
