Spiritual Growth Path
Some places may require you to do many things in their spiritual growth path and some places may not even have a spiritual growth path. We believe that the simpler the path the more likely you are to achieve it. At Hope Church there are just four things we want to help you focus on in order to grow spiritually & relationally with God & others. We believe that if you do these in ever increasing measure you will be on the right track to becoming the person God desires for you to become.
Hope Church exists to lead people into a personal and growing relationship with Jesus Christ by encouraging and equipping them to:
Here we focus on loving others. You accomplish this by joining a Life Group and/or Discipleship Class and developing relationships with others. Developing & growing in your relationship with other believers is a necessity of growing spiritually.
“If one falls down, his friend can help him up. But pity the man who falls and has no one to help him up!” - Ecclesiastes 4:10
We believe that life change happens best through community. Life Groups and Discipleship Classes are the best environments to open God's Word together, pray together, grow together, be held accountable, be cared for, and experience being part of a "family".
Are you in a Life (small) Group? Are you attending a discipleship class? Do you have someone holding you accountable for your spiritual growth?
JOIN THE MISSION
Here we we focus on using the talents & abilities that God has given us to serve others both inside and outside the church. You accomplish this by joining a Strategic Service Team and participating in Adopt A Block and in our Servant Evangelism outreach projects.
“Each one should use whatever gift he has received to serve others, faithfully administering God's grace in its various forms.” - 1 Peter 4:10
Strategic Service Teams are people gathered together to serve within the church. People serving are vital to Hope Church and we look to them to facilitate and potentially lead the environments we have created to help lead people into a personal and growing relationship with Jesus Christ.
Are you involved in a Strategic Service Team? Are you serving in a ministry at Hope?
Adopt A Block is our weekly outreach where we focus on building relationships and meeting practical needs in our community. Servant Evangelism is sharing the love and message of Jesus Christ through practical acts of service and kindness.
Are you participating in Adopt a Block and/or in our Servant Evangelism projects?
Here we focus on being a good steward of our finances and modeling our giving after the life and message of Jesus. You accomplish this by giving regularly and sacrificially. We strive to be a generous church with generous people. When you give to Hope Church you help us fulfill our vision to empower a leadership revolution that transforms lives, influences our community, and inspires hope.
Are you giving regularly? Do you give sacrificially?
BRING A FRIEND
Here we focus on developing relationships and being a positive, godly influence on those outside the faith. You accomplish this through building relationships with those outside the faith and by giving out Invite Cards and participating in our Invest and Invite Strategy.
“Be wise in the way you act toward outsiders; make the most of every opportunity.” - Colossians 4:5
Influence with outsiders helps keep the focus on the fact that all believers have the responsibility of carrying out the great commission in their circle of influence.
What are you doing to intentionally connect with someone in your circle of influence who does not know Christ? Are you regularly inviting others to Hope Church?
