We believe that the local church should be a blessing to the city, so we encourage people to look beyond the walls of Hope for ways to serve. Listed above are the organizations that we have decided to partner with. We wholeheartedly support their efforts to tangibly bring the Gospel to our Cities, and we’d love for you to connect with them.

Hope believes deeply in impacting our city, our state, and the world. The church is not a bomb-shelter to hide in from the “dangers” of the world; it is a forward-moving, living body, called to storm the gates of Hell with the Gospel. (Matthew 16:18, Genesis 12:2-3, Jeremiah 29:1-11)

As the body of Christ we are called to bring the Gospel in all its fullness to those around us. The Gospel is not an intellectual assent to a list of doctrinal truths; the Gospel, rather, is the all-powerful, wholly transforming person and work of Jesus Christ. (Ephesians 2:1-10; 2 Corinthians 5:17-21)

The purpose of outreach through Hope is to see people, institutions, neighborhoods, and cities impacted and transformed by the person of Jesus Christ, displayed through his body, the church, in word and in deed. (Colossians 1:3-14; 1 Thessalonians 1:2-10; 1 Peter 3:15-16)
