Our Mission

Making, maturing and multiplying faithful followers of Jesus Christ.

Our Values

1. World Missions (Matt 28:18-20, Matt. 24:14, Rev. 7:9-10)
Jesus Christ gave instructions to “make disciples of all nations” and promised that the Gospel would be preached in all the world.

Desiring that all people would live out the abundant life that Jesus offers, we will participate in bringing the Gospel to the world by sending, praying for, and supporting missionaries and international workers.

2. Prayer (1 John 5:14, James 5:16)
God invites us to be in communion with Him, and we believe that everything should be done with constant prayer.

We will individually and corporately live before God in adoration, confession, and thanksgiving, letting requests for ourselves and others be known to Him.

3. Community (Ps. 133:1, Acts 2:42-47, Phil 2:1-5, Heb. 10:24-25, John 13:35)
God’s people are united together in Jesus Christ and are charged to love each other, meet together, encourage each other, meet each other’s needs, share life, and be of the same mind.

We strive to be a community that encourages, supports, and strengthens one another; walking in tenderness and compassion; exemplifying love, encouragement, and humility with one another as we have seen in Christ Jesus.

4. Biblical Instruction (2 Timothy 3:16-17, Heb. 4:12)
God’s Word is the inspired and authoritative foundation of all our preaching, teaching, and life as followers of Jesus Christ.

We are committed to the clear and accurate communication of God’s Word in a way that ministers grace and motivates us to honor, serve and obey our God and Savior.

5. Worship (Rom. 12:1–2, Rev. 4:11, John 4:20-24)
God alone is good, and He deserves all praise and glory as our Creator and Savior.

We acknowledge God’s supreme value and worth, and we desire to foster a culture of worship both in our personal lives and as a corporate body of believers.

6. Family (Deut 6:6-7, Josh 24:15)
The family is the divine building block of Christian community, and marriage is a picture of Christ and His church.

We are committed to providing an environment which supports, nurtures, and strengthens marriages and families. We strive to see a generation of Godly families which will be a heritage for years to come.

7. Evangelism (Rom. 10:14-15, 1 Pet. 3:15, Acts 1:8)
We believe lost people matter to God; therefore, they matter to us. Christ commanded us to proclaim the Good News to all and to make disciples.

We aspire to individually and corporately, share the love of God and good news of Jesus Christ with those around us in the surrounding area.

Our Vision

At Hope Fellowship, we envision a church with a passion to come alongside and partner with missionaries, generously supporting them in prayer, encouragement, and finances. We see our church nurturing, inspiring, and sending out a new generation of Gospel bearers and disciple makers throughout the world.

We envision being a people whose first thought is always prayer; a body of believers who enjoy the presence of Christ in every moment and every context, and who live a life immersed in prayer, whether it be corporately or individually.

We see a community who loves to live life together both within the church and beyond; a church family that is eager to support one another and build each other up. We see a fellowship of believers united in Christ, spurring each other on through encouragement and accountability, bearing each others’ burdens and rejoicing with each others’ blessings.We see a church that is hungry for God’s Word, zealous about instilling that passion in others, and diligent in equipping them with the tools to do so.

We see a church where biblical instruction is truthful, accurate, and brings growth and spiritual maturity; where people are encouraged to meditate on the Word, cherish it, and be “doers” of the Word, not just hearersonly. We envision a thriving Sunday School ministry where all ages have a place to learn and grow in knowledge and understanding of God’s Word; a safe place where people can ask tough questions and get honest answers.

We see a people who, with one voice and their whole being, unashamedly proclaim the Glory of their God and Savior whenever they gather together; a body of believers who see worship as a way of life; who are driven to acknowledge the holiness of God in wonder and awe, and who rejoice in the opportunity they have to connect with Him through worship.

We envision strong and healthy marriages and healing family relationships. We see families who live in integrity and pass that lifestyle on through generations. We see an environment where parents are empowered and equipped to raise up the next generation of godly men and women in knowledge and love of God and maintaining a strong and lasting relationship with Him.

We see people who are excited about sharing the good news of Jesus Christ; people who are bold and always ready to give a reason for the hope that is in them. We see believers who self-sacrificially serve their community in the name of Jesus, and whose joy and hope in Christ is visible and contagious to all who witness it. In the years to come, we see God growing this church, not just from believers moving to town, but from the lost turning to Christ because of our verbal testimony and living witness of Him.

We are committed to sound Biblical doctrine, based upon His written Word, the Bible. We proclaim these truths, believing that they bring about the only life worth living, a life wholly committed to the Lord Jesus Christ.

There is one God,(1) who is infinitely perfect,(2) existing eternally in three persons: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.(3)

Jesus Christ is the true God and the true man.(4) He was conceived by the Holy Spirit and born of the virgin Mary.(5) He died upon the cross, the Just for the unjust,(6) as a substitutionary sacrifice,(7) and all who believe in Him are justified on the ground of His shed blood.(8) He arose from the dead according to the Scriptures.(9) He is now at the right hand of Majesty on high as our great High Priest.(10) He will come again to establish His kingdom, righteousness and peace.(11)

The Holy Spirit is a divine person,(12) sent to indwell, guide, teach, empower the believer,(13) and convince the world of sin, of righteousness, and of judgment.(14)

The Old and New Testaments, inerrant as originally given, were verbally inspired by God and are a complete revelation of His will for the salvation of men. They constitute the divine and only rule of Christian faith and practice.(15)

Man was originally created in the image and likeness of God:(16) he fell through disobedience, incurring thereby both physical and spiritual death. All men are born with a sinful nature,(17) are separated from the life of God, and can be saved only through the atoning work of the Lord Jesus Christ.(18) The portion of the unrepentant and unbelieving is existence forever in conscious torment;(19) and that of the believer, in everlasting joy and bliss.(20)

Salvation has been provided through Jesus Christ for all men; and those who repent and believe in Him are born again of the Holy Spirit, receive the gift of eternal life, and become the children of God.(21)

It is the will of God that each believer should be filled with the Holy Spirit and be sanctified wholly,(22) being separated from sin and the world and fully dedicated to the will of God, thereby receiving power for holy living and effective service.(23) This is both a crisis and a progressive experience wrought in the life of the believer subsequent to conversion.(24)

Provision is made in the redemptive work of the Lord Jesus Christ for the healing of the mortal body.(25) Prayer for the sick and anointing with oil are taught in the Scriptures and are privileges for the Church in this present age.(26)

The Church consists of all those who believe on the Lord Jesus Christ, are redeemed through His blood, and are born again of the Holy Spirit. Christ is the Head of the Body, the Church, (27) which has been commissioned by Him to go into all the world as a witness, preaching the gospel to all nations.(28) The local church is a body of believers in Christ who are joined together for the worship of God, for edification through the Word of God, for prayer, fellowship, the proclamation of the gospel, and observance of the ordinances of Baptism and the Lord’s Supper.(29)

There shall be a bodily resurrection of the just and of the unjust; for the former, a resurrection unto life;(30) for the latter, a resurrection unto judgment.(31)

The second coming of the Lord Jesus Christ is imminent(32) and will be personal, visible, and premillennial.(33) This is the believer’s blessed hope and is a vital truth which is an incentive to holy living and faithful service.(34)
