At Hope, we seek to Offer HOPE, Grow in COMMUNITY, and Be the CHURCH.
One of our desires as a church is to reach out into our community and our world and bring the hope that is only found in Christ! We want to share the gospel both in our words and in our actions.
Jesus answered, “I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.”
Grow in Community
An important purpose of Hope is to see people grow in community. We desire to be a relational body of families that encourage each other in loving relationships – a body that serves together. Our Home Groups dive into each week’s sermon to try to apply God’s truth to their lives and grow closer to Christ and each other. In addition, we have several opportunities each year for families to gather and serve together.
And let us consider how we may spur one another on toward love and good deeds, not giving up meeting together, as some are in the habit of doing, but encouraging one another—and all the more as you see the Day approaching.
Be the Church
God calls us to not only be “hearers” of the Word, but “doers” also. Therefore, at Hope, our desire is to answer God’s call to love others deeply. We believe God’s Word calls us to care about the orphan and widow, the hungry and naked, the sick and the least. God has blessed us to be a blessing to others.
Religion that God our Father accepts as pure and faultless is this: to look after orphans and widows in their distress and to keep oneself from being polluted by the world.
