Living Hope Church is located in Laurel, MD. When you walk in you'll probably notice that Living Hope is built around a "come as you are" mindset. There are no perfect people here. We are all human. We are flawed people doing our best to get to know a perfect God. Knowing and accepting these truths allow us to take off our masks and be real. We don't have to pretend we have it all together. We don't have to pretend that there are no problems. So- if you're coming to check us out for the first time- relax, be yourself- we know you're not perfect, and neither are we. We are a multi-ethnic and multi-generational community of faith.
As a community of faith we want our actions and activities to be purposeful. It is too easy to become busy with religious activities and forget God in the process. We want to learn how to love God, others, and ourselves in the way He intended. Below you will see our mission, purpose, and values that are used to keep us on track.
It is our purpose to introduce our city, community, and surrounding area to a growing relationship with Jesus as we gather, grow, and go.
Gather (Loving God)- The Bible teaches us to come together to pray, to worship, and to encourage one another. Each Sunday, we create an environment where people can experience God in a real way through passionate worship and practical teaching. At Living Hope Church, Worship Gatherings are a time for people to celebrate the greatness of God in a corporate setting.
Grow (Loving Others)- Life change happens best through relationships. We’re passionate about providing opportunities outside of Worship Gatherings for fostering community. Life Groups meet regularly and serve as welcoming environments for people to further develop their relationship with Jesus and others. We strongly encourage people to move to a deeper level by getting plugged in to a Life Group.
Grow (Growth Track)- Our goal is to be a catalyst to help people become fully-devoted followers of Jesus and to discover their identity in Him. At Living Hope Church, Growth Track is a series of courses to help believers walk out their faith and use their unique gifts for ministry.
Go (Serving our City, Nation, and World)- We are passionate about reaching people who are far from God and helping them find new life in Christ. It is our desire to invite all people to experience the life-changing message of Jesus. At Living Hope Church, Go provides regular opportunities for people to use their gifts to spread the Gospel and make a difference locally, nationally, and globally.
