HOPE Welcomes You

HOPE has moved to...

Reputation of Radical Generosity

Two gentlemen were walking down Gannett Street and met one of HOPE’s ushers.  They recognized that he was from HOPE and asked him for $50.00.  The usher didn’t have $50.00 to give them, but he began talking with them and learned that HOPE is quite well known around the community. They shared that, their interaction with churches has all been the same; they have to go to the church to get help. But not HOPE, HOPE goes to the people and offers help. And, because HOPE has developed such a reputation of generosity, the men felt bold enough to ask for $50.00 instead of just a couple bucks. Our radical generosity is causing people to react in boldness and great hope!

Statement of Faith

  • HOLY BIBLE:  The Holy Bible, and only the Bible, is the authoritative Word of God.  It alone is the final authority in the determining all doctrinal truths.  In its original writing, it is inspired, infallible and inerrant (see 2 Tim. 3:16; 2 Peter 1:20, 21; Prov. 30:5; Rom. 16:25,26).
  • TRINITY:  There is one God, eternally existent in three persons:  Father, Son and Holy Spirit.  These three are coequal and coeternal (see 1 John 5:7; Gen. 1:26; Matt. 3:16, 17; 28:19; Luke 1:35; Isa. 9:6; Heb. 3:7-11).
  • JESUS CHRIST:  Jesus Christ is God the Son, the second person of the Trinity.  On earth, Jesus was 100 percent God and 100 percent man.  He is the only man ever to have lived a sinless life.  He was born of a virgin, lived a sinless life, performed miracles, died on the cross for mankind and thus, atoned for our sins through the shedding of His blood.  He rose from the dead on the third day according to the Scriptures, ascended to the right hand of the Father, and will return again in power and glory. (see John 1:1, 14; 20:28; 1 Tim. 3:16; Isa. 9:6; Phil. 2:5, 6; 1 Tim. 2:5).
