Our Pastor

Hi my name is Justin Hoke, I am the husband of Yatang and the father of Joshua, Peter and Samuel. Firstly, however, I am loved by Jesus Christ.

I believe in Christ Centered expositional preaching, having been strongly influenced by servant ministers like; John MacArthur, Steve Lawson, R.C. Sproul, Art Azurdia, Al Martin and Paul Washer.

I have also been strongly influenced by men of the past like Martin Luther, John Calvin, John Huss, William Tyndale, John Flavel, John Bunyan, George Whitefield, George Mueller, Hudson Taylor, and Johnathan Edwards.

It is not that I seek to overly admire any man - all of the above, like myself are merely clay pots. I seek only to admire and love the great Potter who condescends to use brittle clay pots to bring glory to Himself. May God see fit to take glory for Himself in using a weak clay pot like me.

Our goal at Lake Shastina Community Bible Church is to glorify God through the advancement of His kingdom through the gospel of Jesus Christ. Our lives as Christians are lives of dying to self and living to God, lives of being transformed by God into the image of His dear Son. As we grow in a greater understanding of our sin and need for His grace, we become more and more equipped to stand against the temptations of the world the flesh and the Devil. We also be come more equipped to tell others of the great grace of God through the atoning work of Jesus on the cross.

Our hope is that God will use us to be disciple making disciples, willing to give up all for the cause of Christ and His kingdom to the glory of God the Father.

Thank you for taking the time to look over this site and for your prayers.
