Paul instructs Timothy about the wealthy in the church. In worldview, the vast majority of Americans would be considered wealthy, therefore, we should all be generous. We should be generous, not only with our money and possessions, but with our time and talents, in order to serve the church and unbelievers. If generosity is not […]
We are called to fight a spiritual battle. But how are we to fight? What role do we play in this struggle? We love the idea of “Let go and let God,” to surrender to God and let him fight all of our battles for us, but is there more to it than that? We […]

What Do We Do When People Leave the Church?
At some point in our lives, people will abandon us. This happens in our personal relationships and it happens in the church as well. When it does happen, what do we do? And, is there anything we can do to stop it?
Honoring Leaders Well
The Bible tells us that we should honor leaders well. In life, we often notice when leaders are bad, but what about when they do well? Do we recognize and respond to that? How is the best way to honor good leaders? In this sermon, we try to answer these questions.
The Family of God
Often when people think of the church, they think of a cold, distant and intimidating organization. The Bible however, describes the church as an open, warm family community centered around loving people and preaching the truth of Jesus. How did we get away from this?

A Church That Believes and Preaches the Gospel
Living Hope Church is a church where the Gospel is present and central. Where each service has time allotted into it to allow God to speak through his people in whatever way he deems. Unlike your more traditional American church, Living Hope highlights a number of speakers. While 80% of the messages are given by Jeff Gates and Christopher Robins at the St. Joseph location and Mike Sandusky at the Maryville location, there are multiple other speakers being trained up.
While the messages are good, the real reason Living Hope Church is my home is because it is filled with caring people whose goal is to build a genuine Christian community where we care for each others needs as we pursue Christ.
This church is always talking about Jesus...
I'm a member of the Living Hope Church campus in St. Joseph and the thing I always appreciate about the teaching is that it's about Jesus. I don't think I've ever heard a self-help type of preach before, they seem to always be focused on teaching about Jesus and living the Christian life.
The atmosphere is always relaxed and casual, plus there is just a good sense of community, people seem to genuinely care for one another. It's also a great church to invite my friends to who may be spiritually searching or are just curious about who Jesus is and what Christianity looks like.
The teaching is always relevant, the worship is authentic and focused on God and I always laugh! Jeff is a funny, down to earth guy who has a real teaching gift. Come check it out!
