We are ready to move to El Cerrito

God called us to move with him, and we are ready.


When we launched Lineage in the Fall of 2004, we were convinced only of one thing: that there is no brokenness that cannot be mended in God’s presence. And so our goal and sincere desire has always been to introduce people not merely to a religion called Christianity, but to the living presence of the Living God. Our move to our first permanent facility in the city of El Cerrito in 2021 will enable us to make more room for more people to encounter God in this way.

Why Is This Important

Opening a permanent facility in a community like El Cerrito will make it possible for us to extend the message of God’s love and grace to more people than ever before. Plans are well underway for the renovation of our 12,000 square foot building with a 200 seat auditorium and permanent spaces for kids Birth-12th grade!


We believe this facility will continue to pave the way for us to make it easy for people to experience God Truly Among Us! This is truly the most exciting season in the history of Living Hope to date!

Our New Home

We are so close to coming home to our new permanent space in El Cerrito! Drawings have been submitted to the city for review and we are ready to begin construction as soon as plans are approved. Take a look at some of the plans for our building project and what it will take for us to finally move into our new home.


Our new facility will not only be absolutely beautiful, it will be completely outfitted with everything we need to reach more people and to make our vision, God truly among us, a reality.

Hear Our Stories

Hear the stories of why and how our people are saying yes to God and putting the Kingdom first in their lives.


“We’re giving to Kingdom First because God has changed our lives and we want to see lives changed.”

Hear why our members are putting the Kingdom first in this tangible way.


“This is what we’ve been missing all these years.”

Hear how God has moved in the lives of some of our members and why they’re choosing to move with Him now.


“It was in that season that God said, ‘I have chosen you, I have called you.’ And finally after 30 some years of my life, I finally responded yes to him.”  
– Nicole Jung


“I’m going to continue to be faithful. I’m going to keep giving because I’ve seen God provide out of nothing. From here the sky’s the limit, and God can do more than I can imagine.” – Chinwe Omani Venable


From day one, God called Lineage to be a mission minded church. Check out the impact of our house, and the opportunities God has given us to serve his people here in the bay and all over the world.
