Matt Hauck

Christian, husband, father

A once enemy now son, forgiven and freed by Jesus' blood, adopted and called by grace for glory.

I believe God takes sovereign initiative in salvation from beginning to end and that the death of Christ effectively secures salvation. I believe the kingdom of God is a future reality on earth which is different from the church, and yet God has one plan for the ages which includes the church. I believe that Spirit-backed expository preaching of God's word is the heart of the Christian ministry.

Full name is Matthew, most call me Matt, sadly only few call me 郝柏昇. I like puns and corny jokes. I like coffee and theology–especially together. I like ninjas, music, and programming. I love my family. I love most the Lord Jesus Christ, my Savior and only—yet sure—hope.

Born in 1982. Grew up in Murrieta, CA. Studied Applied Math at Berkeley (minored in Computer Science) until 2005. Reborn in 2003: repented and believed in the Lord Jesus Christ at EBCB.  Programmed at BigFix in Emeryville. Began studying Theology at The Cornerstone Seminary in Vallejo. Came to serve as missionary-pastor in Taiwan. Realized I have neither a clear calling nor sufficient training and had to humbly step down. Now working as a programmer.
