A God Craving

Seeking the Father’s Glory

By Donna Johnson on October 19th, 2017

         Deep in the heart of every human is a longing to have relationship with the Creator. A desire to know Him and be known by Him. Most often this desire is mistaken for a restless emptiness and is therefore filled with whatever will satisfy us in the moment. When we recognize our need for God, and we begin to seek after Him we find that He is the only true satisfaction in this life.


Unrelenting Pursuit

A Love Unlike Any Other

By Gene Miller on September 18th, 2017

      Each of us have our own story of where we came from, and how we first heard about God. Sometimes it is in the environment of an understanding church congregation, or an authentic Christian home, but sometimes we meet God through a distorted lens that works to push us away from wanting to know Him more, or a negative encounter that causes us to run in the opposite direction of what we’ve just experienced. Through it all, God never gives up on us, but instead pursues us faithfully with His kindness and His grace.


Even When it Hurts

Waging War Against the Evil One

               Perhaps you’ve heard it said before that there is a difference between head knowledge and heart knowledge. Knowing the Word of God and walking by faith, although connected in giving purpose to the Christian walk, are two very different things. It is generally easy for us to believe and receive the blessings of our Heavenly Father when all seems well in our lives and situation, but when trials come and we are tested by the brokenness of the world in which we live, our faith becomes a little bit harder to live out.

Embracing His path for Us

By  Joey McAllister on June 16th, 2017


          Too often in our lives we become trapped in an image that is far from what God has designed us to be, an identity that hinders our relationship with our Lord and with others. Not only does God create us in His likeness, giving us life through His breath, but He also shapes and molds us into new creations, far removed from the misshapen figures of the world.


Qualifying the Called


The Ministry of Church Leadership

By Gary Vulgamore on May 19th, 2017


    God doesn’t call the qualified, He qualifies the called. Here at Living Hope Church we believe in the importance of having leadership that is qualified by God and called to care for our church family. Gary Vulgamore, a leader here at LHC, has studied the Word concerning the standards set for elders and deacons.

My Great Commission

By Terry VanLeeuwen on April 15th, 2017

          In almost every account in the Word of God, people are going and doing. From Old Testament to New, the people who knew the word of the Lord were always reaching out to share it with others.
