Welcome to Living Hope.


It’s not an accident that you’re here. We believe that God directs our steps, that His Spirit guides our path to those places where He can reveal Himself to us.

During our services and programs each week, we purpose to create an atmosphere where God’s Spirit can reveal His truth, and a setting where His Body, the church, can be equipped to fulfill His Commission in our daily lives. We value the Word of God.

Whether you’re checking us out for the first time, or have already visited one or more of our services, we’re glad to make your acquaintance, and we invite you to consider plugging into our congregation.

We are a Pentecostal fellowship; our worship gatherings are lively and Spirit-led. We value corporate worship. We believe in the orderly operation of the spiritual gifts during corporate worship, and the ongoing empowering Presence of God in the daily life of the believer. We value the community of worshippers.

We are a member-church of the International Pentecostal Holiness Church, and regionally located within the Cornerstone Conference. Click the links to learn more about our denomination and our corporate statement of faith.

We serve our community; Jesus said the world would know His disciples by their love for one another, and that an attitude of service would characterize everyone who followed after Him. At Whitnel, we value the work of the Kingdom. We endeavor to demonstrate the love and compassion of Christ beyond just our worship gatherings. As you’ll see, we serve others within our church body, as well as in our local community and even across the globe! We believe that selflessly serving others is the most tangible expression of our love for the Savior—and that the most pleasing worship we can offer Him is a consistent witness in our community.
