We believe that the Bible is God’s written Word. The Holy Scriptures are both infallible and inerrant in their original writings. The scriptures were verbally inspired, both Old and New Testaments. By this we understand that the Holy Spirit inspired the thoughts of the writer. The Bible is the final authority in all matters of faith and practice for the believer. Living Hope is committed to God’s Word as the standard and final authority in all that we say and do as a body of believers. 1 Corinthians 2:13; 2 Timothy 3:16-17; 2 Peter 1:20-21
We believe in a Triune Sovereign God. We believe He exists eternally in three persons: Everlasting Father, His only begotten Son Jesus Christ, and the Holy Spirit, the giver of all life. All three are eternal in being, identical in nature, equal in power and glory, and having precisely the same attributes and perfections. Deuteronomy 6:4; 2 Corinthians 13:14
Man’s Creation and Fall
We believe that man was created in the image and likeness of God. Our first historical parents, Adam and Eve, sinned by rebelling against God’s revealed will, and thus became alienated from God (separated both physically and spiritually), acquired a sin nature, and came under the judicial sentence of death. All human beings are consequently born with a sinful nature that leads them to sin in thought, word, and deed.
At Living Hope, we strongly believe in doing something about the faith in which we have placed our lives. We not only believe that this body of doctrine is a sacred trust to be always preserved and taught in its purity, but we also believe it teaches a life to be lived and a Gospel to be preached.
