Learning and sharing the good news about Jesus Christ.
Living Hope Lutheran Church was established in 2005 as a lay-led start and held its first worship service on September 11, 2005 in the chapel at California Lutheran High School. In 2007, Living Hope called Pastor Michael Schroeder to be its first full-time pastor.
Living Hope is a small to mid-size family church. We are the type of church where people have relationships with one another and "know your name". If you want to be involved, whether in studies or fellowship opportunities, there is a place here for you. We enjoy growing and learning together and find our church family to be one that worships together, studies together, plays together and supports one another. Your spiritual growth is also important to us and we welcome you to become a part of our family.
Living Hope Lutheran Church is a member congregation of more than 1200 churches called the Wisconsin Evangelical Lutheran Synod or WELS. The WELS is a world-wide church body with congregations serving in all fifty of the United States, as well as 26 foreign countries throughout the world.
As Lutheran Christians, we are fully committed to the threefold foundation of the Reformation:
This means that we believe
and teach that salvation is ours only by the grace of God through faith in Jesus Christ, as taught in the Word of God, the Bible. Our whole purpose is to bring this knowledge of the Savior to those in need of it.
