We believe the church, as the body of Christ on earth, offers hope to mankind. We believe that Hope Center must strive to share the Gospel of Jesus Christ with love, mercy, and compassion.
WE believe that there is only one God who is ever-living, eternal God (Deut. 6:4), infinite in power, holy in nature, attributes and purpose, and possessing absolute, indivisible deity. This one true God has revealed Himself to humanity as Father (Creator), as the Son in redemption (Savior), and as the Holy Spirit dwelling within us (I Cor. 8:6, Eph. 4:6; II Cor. 5:1, Joel 2:28).
about The Bible…
WE believe the Bible is the inspired Word of God and a divine revelation from God to man. We accept the Scriptures as the final authority in all matters of faith and conduct (II Tim. 3:16-17).
WE believe that salvation is only found in Jesus Christ and is appropriated to humanity by God’s grace through the New Testament new-birth experience (Acts 4:12, Eph. 2:8, John 3:3-7).
WE believe that the new-birth experience is repentance, water baptism in the name of Jesus Christ, and the infilling of the Holy Spirit. These steps are the New Testament pattern for all believers to follow as a result of their faith in Christ (Acts 2:38, Acts 10:44-48, Acts 19:5-6).
WE believe in water baptism by immersion in the Name of the Lord Jesus Christ for the remission of sin. Through baptism, we identify with the death, burial, and resurrection of Jesus Christ (Rom. 6:3-6, Col. 2:11-14, Acts 2:38).
WE believe that when a person receives the baptism of the Holy Spirit, that person will speak with other tongues under the inspiration of the Holy Spirit (Acts 2:4, Acts 19:6, Is. 28:11).
about The Church…
WE believe the Church has been “called out” of the world to be a habitation of God through the Spirit (Eph. 2:19-22).
WE believe, as the “called out ones,” that believers are called to live a holy, pure life before God and all humanity (II Cor. 6:14-7:1, Heb. 12:14).
WE believe the church is one body made up of many members, diverse in their gifts and calling of the Holy Spirit. (I Cor. 12:12-18)
WE believe that we are called to a life of service. Our service to God is exemplified by our dedication to prayer. We are dedicated to prayer and service (John 13:15-17).
WE believe that all believers have the mandate to propagate the gospel of Jesus Christ to the entire world (Matthew 28:19-20, Acts 1:8).
WE believe that God’s power is active in the church and that healings, signs, and miracles are available to God’s people through faith in Jesus Christ. (Heb. 13:8, 1 Cor. 2:4, I Pet. 2:24)
about The Second Coming of Christ…
WE believe that Jesus Christ will return to the earth to catch the church away 1 Thessalonians 4:16-17, and shall, after a short time, return to set up His kingdom on earth (Rev. 19:11-16, Mat. 24:29-31)
