What is Hope Lives Today?

We exist to help the souls come to understand that true Hope comes from a knowledge and relationship with the Living God...Jesus. We are part of a family of programs created by Christians Broadcasting Hope (CBH).

Why Hope?


The reality of humans is that, in many ways, most all of us seek the same things.  We long for shelter, for nutrition, for work, for health, for happiness, for peace amid the chaos of our lives, and for our families to be whole.  The forces of this world often work against many of these desired outcomes in our everyday lives.  Yet, there is one thing that keeps us pressing forward believing that the realities we experience can be better...both in this life and the next.  That commodity is HOPE...and we believe true Hope Lives Today in the person of Jesus, the Living God.
