Gather, Grow, Go
Our mission field is not merely across the sea; it is across the street. It is our vision at Living Hope to share the explicit Gospel within our community and the city of Charlotte. To accomplish our mission, Living Hope must be actively engaging the community and city through our WITNESS and WORK.
Reaching our Neighbors through our Witness
Goal: It is our goal at Living Hope to provide motivation and the momentum to reach our community with the Gospel of Jesus Christ.
A "Big Day" is an all-out push toward a single Sunday for the purpose of reaching as many people as possible for Jesus. Big Days provide the means to grow current members at Living Hope and the momentum needed to reach others in the community. Throughout the calendar year, we plan a big day every quarter (Easter, VBS, Fall Festival and Christmas).
Reaching our Neighbors through our Work
Goal: We desire to serve and engage five ministry partners in and around the Charlotte area.
Human Coalition of Charlotte
Along with our monthly support, the Living Hope family will recognize the third Sunday of January as “Sanctity of Life Sunday.” To support our ministry partner, Living Hope will help serve with the Human Coalition to assist women who are seeking an abortion.
Metrolina Baptist Association
The MBA is a partnership of over 100 churches that are committed to reaching Charlotte with the Gospel of Jesus Christ. The MBA also provides support to area pastors through training, fellowship and prayer.
Baptist Children’s Home of North Carolina
One of the most important ministries of the Baptist State Convention of NC is the BCH. They are a wonderful ministry with the passion to reach at risk and troubled children. The Living Hope family has developed a relationship with the Mills Home in Thomasville, NC. Each year, Living Hope actively pursues opportunities to serve the Mills Home.
McAlpine Elementary School- Community Partner
The Living Hope family has partnered with one of our area schools, McAlpine Elementary School. Each year, we assist our community partner with supplies, teacher luncheons and other assistance throughout the school year.
The Telugu Ministry meets once a month and is specifically focused on reaching those who speak the Telugu dialect with the Gospel of Jesus Christ. Living Hope has partnered with the Telugu Ministry by providing them a place to hold their meetings. It is our goal that through this ministry people of the Telugu dialect will come to know Christ and always feel welcome in our Church family.
The last words of Jesus were "go make disciples of all nations."
Missions is not just for missionaries; God's call is for all. At Living Hope, our desire is to support and pray for our global mission partners.
We consistently support our mission partners with the Southern Baptist Convention. However, Living Hope is also committed to supporting other missionaries from Gospel-centered organizations. Currently, Living Hope is supporting missionaries in Asia, India, Africa and South America.
Lottie Moon Christmas Offering
It is our desire to support the International Mission Board. The IMB currently has 4700 missionaries serving Christ world-wide. In order to fund the Great Commission, the Lottie Moon Christmas Offering is a vital part to support global missions. Living Hope will actively support and promote the Lottie Moon offering annually.
