Hope Church, while not part of a denomination, is also not independent. We are part of a family of churches called Lifelink Chicago. Those churches are Living Word Church in Lansing, Illinois, CrossPoint Church in Crown Point, Indiana and Mercy Hill Church in Munster, Indiana. Together, the four churches work to bring the love and power of Jesus to the south suburbs of Chicago and Northwest Indiana.
Lifelink Chicago relates closely with a number of other churches in the US and UK, as well as having other relationships throughout the world. This gathering of inter-related churches, called LifeLink International, is a family of evangelical charismatic Christian churches who share in the common vision and purpose of wanting to see the Kingdom of God fully established across the world in this generation.
LifeLink International has an apostolic team that provides wisdom, input and direction for churches within the network. Alan Scotland, Ian Rawley and others lead this team, and their apostolic and prophetic ministry is an essential part of helping us attain to all God intends us to be.
LifeLink International itself is part of Global Horizons, which is a UK based Christian charity that desires to spread the message of the Gospel of Jesus Christ in the 21st century. Global Horizons includes churches, colleges, training centers and humanitarian partnerships. We encourage you to check out the website and read about the values, vision and reach of Global Horizons around the world.
New to Lifelink Chicago is the Visible Music College, which originated in Memphis, Tennessee and now has a campus in Lansing, Illinois. The mission of Visible Music College is to train and equip musicians, technicians, and business professionals in skill and character for effective service in the music industry and in the church.
