About Us


We believe God changes lives, builds up faith, inspires hope and empowers with love. God’s power is to give you a new vision for life. It involves a deeper relationship with Christ and Growing in Community. His power works through you to change you for the better and impact the world around you.

If you are seeking to deepen your relationship with Christ, then you can plant deep roots here at Living Hope. We believe that at Living Hope, Christ tills the soil of your heart and cultivates you by taking out the weeds that drain you of life. Here God grows you by pouring waters of grace, planting the seed of His Word, and shining His love on you. As you grow here, you will be rooted in community, grow in glory and display God’s power in your life. Here at Living Hope we are all in the process of growing and we know we are all at different stages in that process, but we are all one family. We recognize that we are all a garden together growing in different ways.

We invite you to belong to something greater than yourself, to believe in God and to be-loved by Christ and the Living Hope family. We are rooted in Fox Lake community with a vision to welcome all people from all walks of life who are thirsting for God in their lives! At Living Hope you will be loved and challenged to grow in your relationship with God and with others.



WE BELIEVE God is one God in three persons: The Father, Son and Holy Spirit.


WE BELIEVE the Bible is the Word of God and is the foundation for our faith and for our lives.


WE BELIEVE God wants to have a relationship with us, and that He sent His Son Jesus Christ to live and die and rise again, so that we might have new life in Him.

JESUS CHRIST as Savior and Lord

WE BELIEVE sin is disobeying God’s law and living outside of God’s will. The only way to escape the punishment we deserve is to accept Jesus Christ as Savior and Lord.


WE BELIEVE salvation is by grace: it is a gift from God, not because of our works, but freely given by Him.


WE BELIEVE God calls us to live in the world, not to conform to the world, but to be His agents to bring the message of change and transformation to all areas of life.


WE BELIEVE our only comfort in life and in death is to belong to our faithful Savior Jesus Christ.

Our History

A Spiritual Home to Belong to…
A Spiritual Home to Belong to…

NOV 23. 1993 – LHC WAS BORN
Our story begins with a small group of people desiring to find a place where they belong. They were looking for a place where they can worship and be free in expressing their love for God. They went searching for a place where they could explore the depths of God’s love, discover the grace and purpose God has for them and then authentically live out the vision God has for them individually and the mission God has for them as a community. In short they were searching for a place to spiritually grow, raise their families and pursue Jesus Christ and His Kingdom.

Starting a Place to Belong…
Starting a Place to Belong…

As a result of searching for this place that existed in their hearts in November 1993 they birthed a new community called Living Hope Community Church. This place exists to let everyone know that here they can find a place to belong, a place where they can explore their relationship with Christ, a place where all people can come as they are and seek God through worship and find God’s vision for their life.

On November 23, 1993 the first official worship service was held at the Fox Lake Town Hall. The space was just large enough to hold all of us! After worshiping in that facility for about 2 months we moved to Bethany Presbyterian Church in Randolph, WI.

Our time at Bethany was a time of growth but we continued to feel God calling us to the Fox Lake area and the surrounding community. In February of 2003 we moved to the Fox Lake Elementary School. Shortly thereafter we opened a Ministry Center downtown Fox Lake to help us better reach the Youth of Fox Lake.

Planting Roots: Our Commitment…
Planting Roots: Our Commitment…

In 2005, we decided it was time to make a long-term commitment to Fox Lake. By God’s grace, we had reached a unified point that it was time to build a new facility in Fox Lake. Despite our fears, doubts and short-comings, we were being compelled to move forward and build in faith. We were able to start our building project in early 2006, and we had our first service there on New Year’s Eve, 2006.

Living Hope Community Church…

Currently searching for the next pastor of LHCC, and trusting God to direct us into this next chapter.
