Living Hope Baptist Church believes in missions. Through the leadership of our pastoral staff and Missions Ministry Team, we desire to bring glory to God by engaging, equipping, and empowering the members of Living Hope Baptist Church to love God and love people in order to reach the world with the gospel of Jesus Christ. We will do this by adhering to the following vision, mission, and goals.
Who is your Mission?
Life change. It all begins with a conversation. The gospel of Jesus Christ is the most profound reality of life. But sharing it with someone can be as simple as three circles. Discover how you can share the gospel with anyone using the Life Conversation Guide. Click below.

Mission: To make disciples of all peoples through church planting in fulfillment of the Great Commission.
In Acts 1:8, Jesus boldly proclaims, “But you will receive power when the Holy Spirit has come upon you, and you will be my witnesses in Jerusalem and in all Judea and Samaria and to the end of the earth.”
This passage of Scripture begs the question, “Where will you go?” As a follower of Christ, he has called you personally to be his witness. We want to develop the entire congregation, from children to senior adults, to live with this Great Commission mindset every day.
