Hope Community was launched in January 2017, but the story starts years before that.
Hope Community was born out of a God-given desire to create a different kind of church, a church where all people could discover hope unhindered:
All People. All people regardless of age, race, gender, or socioeconomic status. Families of all types. Been-to-church, never-been-to-church. People who long for purpose, people looking for hope.
Can Discover. We believe that following Jesus is a lifelong process. It isn’t something we arrive at one day, but rather a daily journey of finding out just who Jesus is and who we are because of him.
Hope. Real, lasting hope. Not hope that will fade tomorrow or the next day. Not hope that’s found in a relationship, job, substance, government, political party, or thing. True hope. We believe that hope is found in Jesus.
Unhindered. We don’t want anything to get in the way of people discovering hope in Jesus. We know that there are things about church and Christianity that keep people from discovering God, and turn them off from following Him. But we also know that the good news of Jesus is just that, good news for all people. So we asked, what if we could create a church where the things that keep people from discovering God were cleared away?
