At Living Hope Fellowship, we understand that all believers who have submitted to the plan of God for salvation through Jesus’ death, burial, and resurrection are “members” in the Body of Christ. Over the years, Christians have chosen to group together with other like-minded Christians to serve the Lord in a local church. For those who decide to group with us, we like to call you partners in the work of the Kingdom through LHF, which is why we prefer to use the word “Partnership” instead of “Membership.”
We understand that a commitment to serve the Lord with other believers provides a great opportunity for growth and accountable relationships. Those who are interested in committing to partner with others at Living Hope Fellowship, to serve the Lord in a family community together, are asked to complete the Partnership steps.
Please take the time to work through the Partnership steps below as you are able. Our Pastor, Chris Rieber, will contact you after your form is received, and we will then process your Partnership Card and consider you as a committed partner in the Kingdom work of LHF. If you have any questions regarding partnership at LHF, or how to complete the Partnership steps online, please CONTACT us.
Please complete the following 4 steps to complete your agreement to partner with the body of LHF.
Step 1: Take the time to read the “Who We Are” page & the “Our Essential Christian Beliefs” page on our website (these are located under the ‘New Here’ tab)
Give special attention to the seven items listed under the section “Our Essential Christian Beliefs.” We believe these points are essential “non-negotiable” components of being a Christian.
Step 2: Read the Foundational Words booklet
These are the words that describe how we function as a family at LHF. We are committed to walking by these principles for the sake of harmony and spiritual maturity at LHF. Download a copy of the Foundational Words Booklet.
Step 3: Work through “The Abundant LIFE” bible study
This study, written by LHF Pastor Chris Rieber, is written with the hopes that by completing the study you will experience all that God intended for you in your relationship with Him. Download and print out your copy of The Abundant LIFE bible study.
Step 4: Fill out a Partnership Card
You can pick up a Partnership Card from the church office or in a Welcome Packet located in the church foyer.
