A Message from the Pastor:

“Jesus told us: “By this shall all men know that ye are my disciples, if ye have love one to another.” (John 13:35)  Love, poured out on us by the Holy Spirit, is what makes Hope work. We are not trying to be the “cool” church, the “intellectually stimulating” church, or any other kind of church contrived by human wisdom. Our motto, “Friends Seeking God Together,” is not simply a catchy phrase. It’s us. We want to be a community of friends where God demonstrates His wisdom by the power of the Holy Spirit every time that we meet together. If your heart burns for this kind of place, come see if I am telling the truth or just giving you another church sales pitch. Jesus lives at Hope.”
