Our hearts are restless until they find their rest in Christ. Knowing Jesus Christ and the power of His resurrection is our defining Story.
Knowing Jesus Christ
Indeed, I count everything as loss because of the surpassing worth of knowing Christ Jesus my Lord. For his sake I have suffered the loss of all things and count them as rubbish, in order that I may gain Christ – Philippians 3:10
There are many things that we can strive for and be defined by in this world. Hope of Christ seeks to be defined by what Christ has accomplished and is accomplishing in us.
From the seeds of faith to its mature flowering, Christ supplies all we need to grow in grace. We grow together by the strength each person supplies.
Growing in Grace
Speaking the truth in love, we are to grow up in every way into him who is the head, into Christ, from whom the whole body, joined and held together by every joint with which it is equipped, when each part is working properly, makes the body grow so that it builds itself up in love. – Ephesians 4:15-16
We are not redeemed to be lonely but to grow together in grace. We seek to be instruments in the Redeemer’s hands – one for another.
His love has been poured out into our hearts and it overflows to our community and throughout the world that all may know Him.
Going in Hope
But you will receive power when the Holy Spirit has come upon you, and you will be my witnesses in Jerusalem and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the end of the earth. – Acts 1:8
We are redeemed and gifted by God to be a blessing to others. We seek to love our neighbors where we live and share the Gospel to all who ask. We are committed to the planting of Churches in this area and supporting the Gospel throughout the world.
