We Serve Together

We seek to bring God’s word to life in creative, relevant, compelling ways that matter for today’s world.
As members of the redemptive movement of Jesus Christ, we accept the personal ownership for the advancement of our mission.
We believe every life matters. We engage people where they are and walk with them toward a relationship with God.
Acting on the kindness that God has shown each of us, we strive to treat one another with generous kindness – pursuing unity and choosing sacrificial love.
We encourage honesty and transparency for everyone. We seek to accurately define reality even when it’s difficult, and to live in humility with one another.
We won’t try to do everything, but what we do, we want to do well, with earnest effort. The work of the Church is important work, and we treat it as such.
A THREE-STEP EXPERIENCE DESIGNED TO INTRODUCE YOU TO HOPE AND GIVE YOU WAYS TO MOVE FORWARD IN YOUR JOURNEY WITH US.
Discover Hope is a great first step for learning more about who we are as a church family and what it means to have a relationship with Christ.
You will hear about HOPE's history, mission, vision, and values from members of our staff, and learn about ways you can get involved at a deeper level, including through church membership.
We believe that the Bible is inspired by the Holy Spirit, and is the final authority on all matters on which it speaks. On this sure foundation, we affirm these seven essentials of our faith:
We believe in one God, the sovereign Creator and Sustainer of all things, infinitely perfect and eternally existing in three Persons: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.
Jesus Christ is God in the flesh who walked among us, died on a cross as a sacrifice for our sins, and on the third day arose bodily from the dead. He ascended into heaven, and is now our High Priest and mediator.
The Holy Spirit has come to glorify Christ and to apply the saving work of Christ to our hearts. He gives us new life, empowers and imparts gifts to us, guides us into all truth, and seals us for the day of redemption.
Being separated from God and condemned by our sinfulness, our salvation is wholly dependent upon the work of God’s free grace. God credits His righteousness to those who put their faith in Jesus Christ alone for salvation.
The true Church is composed of all persons who through saving faith in Jesus Christ and the sanctifying work of the Holy Spirit are united together in the body of Christ.
Jesus Christ will come again to the earth-personally, visibly, and bodily-to judge the living and the dead, and to consummate history and the eternal plan of God.
The Lord Jesus Christ commands all believers to proclaim the Gospel throughout the world and to make disciples of all nations.
These essentials are important to us, and an integral part of the beliefs in our denomination, the EPC (Evangelical Presbyterian Church). When reading the essentials, we also keep the EPC motto in mind: “In Essentials Unity, in Non-Essentials Liberty, in All Things Charity.”
At HOPE, we participate in the sacraments of baptism and taking communion. Learn more about what this means and how you can participate with us.
Infant baptism involves the acknowledgment that God works in our lives long before we ever know it. This sacrament marks the promise that God is making through Jesus Christ, that forgiveness of sin and new life are offered. When we baptize children at HOPE, we ask the believing parent(s) to reaffirm their personal relationship with Christ, and if married, their vows to one another. We also ask the congregation to express their commitment to encouraging the child to know the love of God and grace of Jesus Christ. We invite families to participate once a month in our worship services.EMAIL US FOR MORE INFO
When we receive Jesus Christ, God washes us clean from sin and adopts us into his family. In baptism, water marks the washing, since water is the universal agent for cleansing. Baptism is a sign that God forgives us, cleanses us from sin, and takes our guilt and shame. When someone accepts Christ as their personal Lord and Savior, they begin a relationship with him. The act of baptism is not what saves, rather, it is an outward expression of an inward transformation and marks the start of a new relationship with Jesus and new life found in him.LEARN MORE ABOUT BAPTISM
Communion is a sacrament that Jesus instituted to represent our continued relationship with him. As we take the bread and the wine together, it is a reminder of the new covenant that has been given to us through Jesus' life, death, and resurrection. Communion is a continual opportunity for us to experience ongoing relationship and new life in Jesus Christ. At HOPE, we offer communion to believers on a regular basis (once a month) in our worship services.
Hope Church began in 1997 with a vision to be a catalytic movement offering the Gospel to as many people as possible as creatively as necessary.
