We are a diverse church with people coming together from many different backgrounds to worship God. All Scripture is self-attesting and being truth, requires our unreserved submission in all areas of life. The infallible Word of God, the 66 books of the Old and New Testaments, is a complete and unified witness to God’s redemptive acts culminating in the incarnation of the Living Word, the Lord Jesus Christ. The Bible, uniquely and fully inspired by the Holy Spirit, is the supreme and final authority on all matters on which it speaks.
Hope accepts us where we are, as we are and provides a meaningful and significant worship experience that is not left at the door when we head to our car in the parking lot. It is an experience that continues to have application in everyday life with everyday issues, with struggles as well as celebrations. Through our four “pillars” of community, worship, service and generosity, Hope’s mission is to engage our unchurched neighbors of every age and ethnicity to experience Jesus.
