statement of faith

HOPE United Church of Christ is a progressive Christian voice that welcomes diverse people for reflection and action. Rooted in the United Church of Christ, HOPE takes the Bible seriously, but not literally. As people who are joyfully and unapologetically Christian, we pledge ourselves completely to the way of love. We work to express our love as Jesus taught: by loving God, neighbor, and self. We unite personal faith with social justice, prayer with peacemaking, and spirituality with action. 

We live our faith on these Four Pillars:

  • Worship
  • Personal Transformation
  • World Transformation
  • Community Building

We passionately believe in the power of HOPE.
