LIVING HOPE RALEIGH (LHR) is the English Ministry of First Korean Baptist Church.
LHR is a community of believers who believe that God created and sustains all things, and gave us the Scriptures to know God and His ways. We believe that people were created to worship God, but have sinned against Him and justly deserve His punishment, but God demonstrated His love for human beings in offering us salvation, by His grace, through the life, death, and resurrection of Jesus Christ. We believe that salvation is by grace alone and faith alone in Jesus Christ alone. We believe that salvation continues on in the believer’s sanctification and will persevere to the end. We believe that we are united in the Church in the name of Jesus Christ and made visible in the local body of believers where God’s Word is preached faithfully, God’s Word is taught and learned faithfully, and where Christ is exalted through all that we believe and do. We believe in the hope that we have now and the hope that will arrive on the Day of the Lord.
We believe the best way we can grow together is through deep discipling relationships. It is the English Ministry pastor’s vision for the English Ministry to be a community of disciples of Jesus making disciples of Jesus.
In addition to our adult ministry, we have a youth ministry of middle and high school students [the youth currently worship together with the adults], children’s ministry [K to 5th grade], and Pre-K ministry. Babies are more than welcome to join the Sunday service, but we have a separate room where both parents and babies can worship via live stream.
Everyone is welcome to join us for our Sunday Services and weekly Bible studies.
FKBC / LHR actively supports full time missionaries all over the world, and we have a few short term missions trips throughout the year.
Living Hope Raleigh is part of a church where both Korean and English speaking congregations worship. Even though the two ministries are separate, we are united in our heart to know Christ more and to make Him known. Both the English Ministry and Korean Ministry lead pastors are committed to mutual spiritual growth and health of the church.
If you wish to know more or are interested, please visit us on a Sunday or contact us. We would love to hear from you and see you.
