Here at Hope Church the vision is this, One Prayer: to Seek God, to Serve others and Share the love of Jesus with a lost and dying world.
SEEK GOD – “Love the Lord your God with all your heart…” “…teaching them to obey…”
Keep the conversation with Jesus going and growing. Prayer is simply talking time to talk and listen to God. It truly makes a daily difference. Get closer to God by regularly studying His teachings. Want to know how to relate to your spouse? Success at your job? Forgive an injury? It’s all here.
Give honor to God and celebrate God’s presence in worship. The church exists to worship God. How do we love God with all our heart? By worshiping Him! It doesn’t matter if we’re by ourselves or with a large group like at church. When we express our love to God we’re worshiping.
SERVE OTHERS – “Love your neighbor as yourself.” “…baptizing them…”
Help someone. It’s that simple. Serve at the homeless shelter, help at the church – choose to make a difference! Make a habit of serving others; you’ll be surprised by the good it does you. In reality, we demonstrate God’s love through service to others.
Cultivate friendships that define “meaningful.” Develop reciprocal relationships with people who will encourage you to become the person God meant you to be. People who expect you’ll so the same for them. More than attending, you are connecting with others and have a sense of belonging.
SHARE – “…go and make disciples…”
Share God’s love through outreach. Sometimes you’re given the perfect opening to invite someone to church. Other times, you need to find common ground and cultivate it before you can extend the invitation. Do whatever it takes to “open the door” for others.
