What makes Hopeful Baptist Church different than other churches? 
Our primary focus is: 
"Learning to be Disciples,  Praying to be Inspired".

While attending Hopeful Baptist you will Learn:

  • The Basics of Christianity, Its Love and how to surrender to Jesus while coming to understand the essentials and importance of his salvation.
  • How to read the books of the Bible: Learn the bible's willed intention, its biblical historical/grammatical meaning and the inspiration of God the Spirits revealed truth in whole for your situation in Life.
  • To Love, Know and Worship God with significances for who he is while being forged in a New Life by him for his Glory. 
  • To embrace a strong Christian Ethics Worldview: Loving the world but not the things of the world through the wisdom and mercy of God.
  • How to be a Befriending Christian: in the Family, Community, Nation and World for God's Will to be done on earth.
(Romans 10:17 So Faith comes from hearing and hearing the word of God)

At Hopeful Baptist we believe the bible is inspirational, true and without error (the willed intention is infallible and inerrant). Meaning that what the authors of the Bible convey regarding matters of developing faith (In Gods Word), applied practice (active Christian life perspective and ethics), and matters of fact (history, geography, science, etc.)  was inspired by the Holy Spirit and is God the Fathers truthful intended will for the Human race. The Holy Scriptures will never lead us astray. 

We believe that the authority of the Holy Scripture is extremely important and sufficient for life both physically and spiritually in this and every age. Those who profess faith in Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior are called to humbly, lovingly and faithfully surrender their life to Jesus as the Holy Scriptures "God's Holy written Word" commands. 

We believe that recognition of the total truth and trustworthiness of the Holy Scripture in everything we do in life is in actuality an adequate confession of its authority. 

Centering our heart and behavior on what God reveals is echoing all that he intends us to be. It also gives residence to God, Jesus and the Holy Spirit in our lives for the world to see.

In effect we believe that this sets us free from lifes troubles, grants us new uplifting life and respectfully gives God the Glory for all that he has decreed.

Come visit us as we join together as one body bringing God all the Glory.
