Faith Statement

We believe...

  • that there is one God eternally existing in three persons: the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit. (Genesis 1:26, John 1:1)
  • the Bible is God's written revelation to man and that it is verbally inspired, authoritative, and without error in the original manuscript. (2 Timothy 3:16-17, 2 Peter 1:19-21)
  • in the personality and deity of the Holy Spirit, that He performs the miracle of new birth in an unbeliever and indwells believers, enabling them to live a Godly life.(2 Corinthians 5:17-19, John 14:16,17 and 26).
  • that creation, as described in Genesis, was an act of God, and not the result of evolution.(Genesis 1-2)
  • that people are created in the image of God, but because of sin, are alienated from God.(Genesis 1:26-27, Romans 3:23)
  • the only way people can be saved is to believe in Jesus Christ, the one and only virgin-born Son of God, who died to take upon Himself the punishment for the sin of mankind. We believe in the deity of Jesus Christ, His virgin birth, His sinless life, His miracles, His death on the cross to provide for our redemption, bodily resurrection from the dead, His ascension into heaven, His present ministry of intercession for us, and His return to earth in power and glory. Through receiving Jesus as Lord, we are made spiritually alive. This begins a relationship with the living Savior. (John 1:1-2, 3:3-7, John 3:16, John 5, John 14:6, Hebrews 9:11-28, Matthew 3:16-17, Matthew 28:19, Acts 1;9, Titus 2:11-14)
  • God ordained marriage and the family, and that biblical marriage is a sacred covenant relationship between one man and one woman, symbolizing the union of Christ and His church. (Genesis 2:18-25, Matthew 19:4-6, Ephesians 5:22-25)
  • God wonderfully and immutably creates each person as male or female. These two distinct, complementary genders together reflect the image and nature of God. Refutation of ones biological sex is a denial of Gods good design (Gen 1:26-27)

Mission Statement

The mission of Living Hope Co-op is to join together to assist each other in our effort to homeschool our children. We believe parents are ultimately accountable to God for the instruction and training of their children. Our goal is to offer a variety of educational classes and an environment for like-minded fellowship. Our desire is that our children will learn to think clearly, concisely and critically with character reflecting that of our Lord Jesus Christ.

As a co-op we value:

  • excellent academic instruction from a Biblical Christian worldview
  • families bringing a willingness to serve so the co-op will run smoothly
  • wholesome relationships that honor Jesus Christ, and
  • teens pursuing Christ-like friendships at co-op rather than boyfriend/girlfriend relationships.
