I Peter 1:3-5 Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ! In his great mercy he has given us new birth into a living hope through the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead, and into an inheritance that can never perish, spoil or fade -- kept in heaven for you, who through faith are shielded by God's power until the coming of the salvation that is ready to be revealed in the last time.
Matt. 28:18-20 Then Jesus came to them and said, "All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age."
Living Hope Presbyterian Church exists in the Lehigh Valley to glorify God through all we say and do. Our Living Hope in Christ inspires us to:
Worship: All worship at Living Hope is to be guided by God’s Inspired Word and is primarily focused on glorifying God. Our worship will be conducted in an atmosphere of reverent awe and joyful freedom communicating the presence of God to the worshippers. This approach will motivate members to bring non-Christian relatives and friends and keep new visitors coming back.
Growth: Christian Education at Living Hope is designed to be a comprehensive instruction and discipleship program based upon the Scriptures. Our desire is to prepare Covenant children for service in the church, to bring a person from conversion to spiritual maturity, to equip members to naturally use their spiritual gifts in ministry, and to enable them to influence the world through every area of their lives.
Outreach: Evangelism at Living Hope will equip, challenge and provide opportunities for Christians to share the powerful Gospel of Jesus Christ through word and deed with people in their network of relationships. Living Hope Church will reach out to the greater Lehigh Valley through the planting of "Daughter Churches," to the United States through the OPC Committee On Home Missions and to the World through the OPC Committee on Foreign Missions.
