Everything we do at Hope is about and informed by the gospel, or the jaw-dropping good news of what God has done in Jesus and is doing through his Spirit. By God's kindness and grace we are made aware of His goodness and love. We become like Him, striving to love Him and our world. We are "gospel-centered" in all we do.
As a church we pursue four pillars of the Christian life: worship, formation, community, and mission.
We were created to worship God, acknowledging His beauty and greatness while loving and serving Him above all else. Our weekly corporate worship renews us toward this goal as we also pursue personal, daily rhythms of prayer and praise - for all of life is worship.
Each of us is being formed every moment of every day - either away from conformity to Christ or into the image of Christ (Romans 8:29, Galatians 4:19). We utilize private practices and corporate activities that effectively transform us into the image of Christ (Romans 12:1,2).
God is a community - a trinity and each of us, being made in his image, must be enveloped in loving, grace-filled relationships in order to live and grow. Our church pursues intentional, authentic community that is transformational and gospel-saturated.
God has called every Christian to be a missionary engaging in His mission of making all things new. Our church not only supports efforts, agencies, and missionaries that seek to bless our world, but our members strive to embody the mission of God in our actions and words every moment of the day.
