There is Hope TV is the media outreach of Seattle Open Door Church located in Burien, WA. Seattle Open Door Church is committed to Loving God, Loving People, Loving Life. We strongly believe that as a person loves God, they will automatically love people. As a person loves God and People, they cannot help but love life. Too many people are trying to love life without loving people and loving God. They are on a path that does not lead to hope.

At Seattle Open Door Church we say There is Hope through Jesus Christ.

There is Hope TV consists of sermons, teachings, and interviews by Pastor Richard D. Dover. To learn more about There is Hope TV, go to www.thereishopetv.org.

There is Hope TV broadcasts locally in the Seattle market but can be watched 24/7 on the Internet. Click here to watch broadcasts on the Internet.

Seek But Not Find

Some seek for God’s will, some seek for knowledge, but reject godly counsel. In the process they end up being confused and deceived.  For many it is because they let pride and sin block them from finding wisdom interfere in finding wisdom.

He who trusts in his own heart is a fool, But he who walks wisely will be delivered.

Proverbs 1:7
the fear of the LORD is the beginning of knowledge; Fools despise wisdom and instruction. Continue reading “Seek But Not Find” »

If you are a regular viewer of There is Hope TV the format is going to be different. Normally the There is Hope TV format is videos of me preaching or teaching at Seattle Open Door Church. However, I am no longer the Senior Pastor of Seattle Open Door Church. I resigned as the pastor because my wife Carmi and I bought a house in Greers Ferry, Arkansas  last year and now live in our home.

I know that sounds like a big change and it certainly is. Over 730,000 people in Seattle and around 1,000 people in Greers Ferry.  Over the next several months I will be talking about this giant change for Carmi and I and will be sharing biblical principles along the way.
