In his great mercy he has given us new birth into a LIVING HOPE through the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead ... 1 Peter 1:3
We live in challenging and confusing times. Fear and hopelessness are all around us. But Jesus, our living hope, is awakening His people, calling them out of complacency into their authority as the People of God. He's doing a new thing right now, reminding us that we are not inadequate, not unworthy, not disqualified. He is revealing this truth anew, that it is by grace — by what Jesus has done — that we are redeemed, that we are qualified ministers of the New Covenant and that He is with us whenever we step out in faith. It's why Paul boldly says, "I can do all things through Christ..."
We should have that same confidence in God.
Our mission is to seek the lost and bring them the truth of God's redeeming love. It's also to call forth God's people to embrace and stand upon this truth: He has chosen and empowered all of us to be His voice and ambassadors here on the earth. And to move in the unstoppable power of His love by the Holy Spirit within us. The only way to be truly fulfilled as a believer in Jesus is to believe Jesus and to do what He says. And He said this: "I tell you the truth, anyone who has faith in me will do what I have been doing. He will do even greater things than these, because I am going to the Father." John 14:23.
This is the wakeup call for all of God's people. This is the mission of Living Hope Fellowship — to call forth God's people and to encourage and equip them to be used mightily by God. By grace we have been given the Kingdom of God. By discipleship, humility and obedience we learn to walk in it. And by the power of the Holy Spirit and the call on our lives, God will move through us to accomplish His will here on earth and to make us more like Him.
