By God’s grace we pray that HopeUC will always be a body, a church, a family and a home that is defined by God’s presence. Worshipful, missional, prayerful, generational, creative, generous, thankful, authentic and completely passionate about people responding to the message of salvation. And with a shout that resounds through every part of our lives that HOPE is a person, and His name is Jesus.
The Word is our Foundation
James 1:22 NLT
But don’t just listen to God’s word. You must do what it says. Otherwise, you are just fooling yourselves.
Worship is our Honour
Psalm 29:2 NLT
Honour the Lord for the glory of his name.
Worship the Lord in the splendour of his holiness.
Active participation and patterns of worship, explain and express our faithfulness.
Community is our Heartbeat
Reach In: Community of Faith
Reach Out: Mission to people outside of us.
Reach Down: Generational empowerment is our legacy.
Reach Up: Follow a Leader.
Romans 1:11-12 NLT
For I long to visit you so I can bring you some spiritual gift that will help you grow strong in the Lord. When we get together, I want to encourage you in your faith, but I also want to be encouraged by yours.
His Presence is our Passion
Ephesians 1:23 NLT
And the church is his body; it is made full and complete by Christ, who fills all things everywhere with himself.
Alignment with God’s authority & structures,
allows His power and gifts to flow.
