We desire to see new believers maturing into being disciples of Jesus Christ, then growing into becoming ministers (servants) of Christ and taking on roles of responsibility (leaders) in their areas of gifting and calling.
Our BIBLICAL FOUNDATIONS course is specially designed to help provide new believers with strong foundations and mature them into being disciples of Christ as they master Biblical principles.

While we do not “script” people’s spiritual journeys, we provide all possible resources and encourage relationships that help shape people in their spiritual growth. We encourage people to identify where they need to grow and take initiative to work on those areas, using what has been made available to them.
We encourage people to initiate and take responsibility to foster discipling (nurturing, mentoring) relationships one on one, in group settings (e.g. Life Groups). Discipleship at Light of Hope Missions happens based on relationships, and is more life centric rather than program centric. We build friendships that later leads to discipleship training.
At Light of Hope we believe in discipling in the midst of life (technically, we’d call this hands on training, as well as classroom training). We believe discipleship happens anytime, anywhere. Hence we encourage people to serve in church, go on missions trips and along the way we coach them, build them up.
Growth is normal and is expected. Growth is seen by increase in stature, ability, maturity and responsibility. We discuss how we grow spiritually as we look at Personal Spiritual life. We believe and trust that Spiritual growth causes increase in Christlikeness and fruitfulness as we serve in the Kingdom. Join us in our discipleship training and be equipped to equip others 2Timothy 2:2 .
