Hope United Methodist Church has a diverse history dating back to 1841.

Through just short of two centuries, Hope Church has seen the foundations of a city, the innovation of flight, and the richness of God’s love. Year after year, Hope’s congregation has faithfully sought after God, taught the Scripture and served it’s community. Its rich heritage has included three mergers bringing together faithful believers in their pursuit of God.

What We Believe

Scripture

We believe that the Scriptures, consisting of both Old and New Testaments, are the inerrant word of God in the original manuscripts. They are the complete revelation of His will for the salvation of men, and are the divine and final authority for all matters of Christian faith and life.

God

We believe that there is one God, the Creator of all things, infinitely perfect, co-equally and co-eternally existing in three persons: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.

Jesus

We believe that Jesus Christ is fully God and fully man, conceived by the Holy Spirit and born of the virgin Mary. He died on the cross as the atoning sacrifice for our sins according to the Scriptures. Jesus Christ rose bodily from the dead, ascended into heaven, and is now seated at the right hand of the Father making intercession for believers as a High Priest and Advocate.

Holy Spirit

We believe that the Holy Spirit presently glorifies the Lord Jesus Christ by convicting people of sin, regenerating believing sinners, and indwelling, leading and empowering believers for godly life and service.

Man

We believe that man was created in the image of God, but sinned and therefore is now lost. Only through the regeneration of the Holy Spirit and the atoning sacrifice of Christ can salvation be attained.

Salvation

We believe that the sacrificial death of Jesus Christ and His bodily resurrection from the dead are the only provision of salvation for all who believe; all and only those who receive Jesus Christ are born of the Holy Spirit, and become children of God by grace through faith alone.

Jesus' Return

We believe in the eminent return of the Lord Jesus and this has a vital bearing upon the conduct and service of the believer.

We believe in an end time, bodily resurrection of all the dead; of the believer to everlasting joy and blessedness in the presence of the Lord, and of the unbeliever to an everlasting and conscious punishment.
