What We Believe
Hope United Presbyterian Church is a particular congregation of the Presbyterian Church (USA). Our mission is to be a family of disciples that gathers together in Christian learning with a commitment to be sent into the world to do God's will. We live this out through innovative worship, practicing hospitality, and living out our mission through our hygiene pantry.
These are the spiritual qualities we as a congregation strive to manifest in our life together:
Christ-Centeredness: Christ is Lord of every aspect of our lives;
Inspiring Worship: Worship is the heartbeat of our life of faith. We bring before God our very best in worship;
Theologically Grounded: We teach, preach, and nurture all members in ways that are biblically-based, intellectually honest, and informed by the best resources of the Presbyterian and the Reformed theological tradition;
Nurture: We welcome and care for one another in ways that encourage us to grow together into the image of Christ. We practice hospitality and encourage a culture of gratitude;
Diversity: We build bridges to those different from us, racially, economically, theologically, and spiritually, and welcome discussion of issues, questions, and ideas, including controversial ones;
Stewardship: We live as faithful stewards of all that God has entrusted to us;
Christian Education: We pass on the faith from generation to generation in ways that challenge and encourage all members toward maturity in Christ and obedience to God's will in all of life.
