We are a West Seattle congregation whose name was taken from a line written by the apostle Peter:

“Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who according to His great mercy has caused us to be born again to a living hope through the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead.” 1 Peter: 1: 3

Outside of the literal bodily resurrection of Jesus of Nazareth, we are hopeless. Since Jesus rose from the dead and lives today, we have a living hope in Him.

But what is this living hope?

It is not that God will give us earthly health and wealth. In fact, we are a congregation with its own share of health issues and people in different economic classes.

It is not that if we follow Jesus and do as He did, then we will be saved. In fact, we are a congregation of sinners, who though trying to stumble in the right direction still sin every day, and need a hope greater than our own daily successes or failures.

Rather, this living hope that we have is God’s promise to forgive the sins and transform the hearts of all who repent and place their faith in His Beloved Son Jesus. God has promised eternal life to all who are in Christ. This great hope, that sinners like us could be known and loved by God, inspires us to try and lead godly lives and preach the gospel to friends and strangers.
