Hope of Christ Church is a congregation of the Presbyterian Church in America (PCA) located in Stafford, Virginia. At Hope of Christ Church we seek to glorify God by knowing Jesus Christ, growing in grace, and going into the world with hope.
Knowing Jesus Christ
At Hope of Christ Church we want to know Jesus Christ and the power of His resurrection.
Jesus is the Son of God, sent to earth to restore our lives and relationship with God to what they were meant to be. You don’t have to look very long at the world or even very far around the world to see that something is broken. Most of what makes the news today is bad news. And in our own communities, at work, with our neighbors, and even with our own families, we are all constantly fighting and demanding and offending and being offended.
But Jesus Christ came with good news. This was not the way God had intended for the world to work. Jesus came with a message and means of hope. Through his own death on the cross and subsequent resurrection from the dead, God has begun restoring and repairing what has been broken for so long. At Hope of Christ we long to be a part of that restoration process.
Growing in Grace
At Hope of Christ Church we seek to grow by grace in faith and love for each other and for those around us.
Growing in grace does not mean that we ever grow beyond our full dependence on the cross of Christ. But at the cross we find the strength that we need for living by and growing in grace. At Hope of Christ we seek to be a conduit of the grace of God.
Going into the World with Hope
At Hope of Christ Church we are committed to living public lives of hope. We will show the hope of Christ to our neighbors and the world.
Hope of Christ will work with our community to restore justice for the overlooked and oppressed.
Hope of Christ will work with like-minded brothers and sisters to start churches in the region and around the world. Our vision is to see five to seven new churches begun in Stafford and surrounding areas by the year 2012.
