Discipling Locally to Impact Globally
Vision is not about reality or what is. Vision is about our dreams and aspirations of what can be and must be.
At Living Hope Bible Fellowship Church, we envision:
Planting a multi-ethnic church with a global vision. We desire a church where people of all nationalities and ethnic backgrounds can come to worship with a burden for the lost in the world without prejudice.
Reaching the Lost. We will be creative, intentional and strategic in sharing Christ with the lost. Like the early church in the book of Acts, we will believe God to add thousands of unsaved and unchurched to our church (Acts 2:47). Our desire is to be a Great Commission church, a church that has the heart to reach the world for Christ (Matt. 28:18-20).
Restoring broken lives. Our vision is to be a place of refuge where the hurting, the depressed, the frustrated, and the confused can discover the love, acceptance, help, hope, forgiveness, guidance, and encouragement that comes from knowing God.
Revitalizing communities in the United States of America and in the foreign mission field. Our vision is to rebuild and impact communities through business, economic development, education and job training centers. We see purchasing and renovating homes and renting them to single parents while at the same time beautifying neighborhoods. We also see providing food, clothing, and medical services to needy families.
Reduplicating through church planting. Our vision is to develop a ministry network that supports and plants churches locally, nationally, and internationally. The goal is to extend the ministry vision and philosophy globally. Conferences and training will be provided regularly to develop the leadership of membership churches.
Rebuilding families, our vision is to strengthen the family structure. We see husbands being strong spiritual leaders in the homes and wives joining them in partnership to seek and accomplish the will of God for their families. We envision creating a dynamic environment for singles to discover and fulfill God's calling upon their lives. We see this as being a safe and nurturing environment that partners with parents for the spiritual, academic, physical, and emotional development for children and youth.
Replicating Christ likeness. Our vision is to be obedient to the Great Commission according to Mathew 28:19, "Go and make disciples of all nations" Our vision is to do everything possible to help every person pursue Christ more holistically and consistently. We want to see every person being conformed into the image of Christ, putting on the mind of Christ, and living the life of Christ (Rom. 8:29; I Cor. 2:16; Phil. 2:5).
Reproducing servant-leaders. Our vision is to consistently raised up servant-leaders. The stability of the church rests on the shoulders of strong servant-leaders, who have the commitment to Christ, consistency in character, and compassion for people. Thus, the vision of Living Hope Bible Fellowship is to multiply its leadership to serve as small group leaders, elders, deacons, and staff.
