SERMONS

What is it that God wants us to know and do? and why? These are the questions we hope to address each and every Sunday.

THE MESSAGES PREACHED AT HOPE

The Messages preached at Hope are Bible based, Holy Spirit inspired, humanly applied teachings that help us navigate life in Christ but situated in the world. Bible-based in that each message is based on a text or two of the Holy Bible, and are congruent with the over-arching message of the Bible. Holy Spirit inspired in that the Holy Spirit wishes to speak to each and every one of us regardless of life circumstances. Humanly applied in that each message attempts to inform us on how to respond to the words from God.
