What we believe at Hope Church about Jesus, the Bible, and the Church
There is only one true God who is eternal King, Creator, and Redeemer of all that is. We believe that Jesus is the only one who can reconcile us to God. He was born of a virgin, lived a sinless and miraculous life, died on the cross in our place, and rose again to prove His victory and empower us for life. We believe that Jesus Christ is coming back again as He promised.
We believe that the Bible is the inspired Word of God. It is infallible, accurate, authoritative, and applicable to our everyday lives.
We believe in one eternal God who is the Creator of all things. He exists in three Persons: God the Father, God the Son and God the Holy Spirit. He is totally loving and completely holy.
We believe that all mankind are lost in sin and need to turn from it and trust personally in the Savior, Jesus. All need to be born anew by the Holy Spirit's power into God's family.
We believe that we are saved by God's grace, through faith in the person and work of Jesus. Anyone can be restored to fellowship with God through repenting, believing and receiving Jesus as their Lord and Savior.
We believe the Holy Spirit lives in us as believers and brings love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, humility, and self control into our lives. He works in and through us with His charismatic gifts.
We believe in the power and significance of the Church and the necessity of believers to meet regularly together.
