What we believe at Hope Community about Jesus, the Bible, and the Church

Our Beliefs

About God

We believe in one God who exists in three distinct persons: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. We believe that Jesus Christ is the second member of the Trinity (the Son of God) who became flesh to reveal God to humanity and to become the Savior of the lost world. We believe that the Holy Spirit, who is God, fills all who follow Jesus.

About Humanity

We believe that all people were created in the image of God to have fellowship with him but became alienated in that relationship through sinful disobedience. As a result, people are incapable of regaining a right relationship with God through their own efforts.

About Salvation

We believe that the blood of Jesus Christ, shed on the cross, provides the sole basis for the forgiveness of sin. Therefore, God freely offers salvation to those who place their faith in the death and resurrection of Christ as sufficient payment for their sin.

About the Scriptures

We believe the entire Bible is a divine and human work. It is the inspired Word of God and people were moved by the Spirit of God to write Scripture. Therefore, we believe the Bible is without error in all it intends to communicate.

About the Church

We believe that the church is the body of Christ, of which Jesus is the head. The church is made up of those who have trusted in the finished work of Jesus Christ. The purpose of the church is to glorify God by loving him and by making him known to the lost world.

About the Christian Life

We believe all Christians are to follow Jesus in everything. They should live for Christ and not for themselves. By obedience to the Scriptures and daily yielding to the Spirit of God, every believer should continue to mature and be conformed to the image of Christ.
