Living Hope Bible Church is a growing non-denominational evangelical multi-ethnic church that is located in beautiful Issaquah, WA, a suburb of Seattle. It is led by a unified team of elders and the Senior Pastor has been with the church
for 25 years. It is marked by a high view of God, expositional teaching of the Bible, sound theology, and a strong sense of family and community in the church. People experience solid Biblical teaching, genuine fellowship, and growth through the sermon, Sunday
school, one of the many small groups, fellowship ministries, youth, or college ministries (on the UW Campus). We are very missions-oriented and promote cross-cultural missions work around the world.
The congregation of ~ 230 is predominately composed of families with children but is also multi-generational. About 50% of the congregation is Caucasian and about 50% Asian (which are the two largest deomgraphics in Issaquah) with a handful of other ethnicities.
The "Eastside" and Seattle area hosts a number of major companies such as Microsoft, Amazon.com, Boeing, Costco, Starbucks, and Zillow making it a magnet for jobs and a mission field opportunity as people move into the area.
