Start Here

Hope Community Church exists to fulfill what Jesus has called his followers to for the past 2000 years, which is to make disciples of Jesus.

For us, that means creating a safe space for spiritually curious people to learn about Jesus. Regardless of what you believe about God, Jesus, or the Bible, you will be welcomed into our community. We welcome your questions. We welcome your doubts. We welcome you.

It also means that we are committed to foster environments where people can grow and be transformed into the likeness of Jesus through worshiping, learning to apply our lives to the teachings of the Bible, praying, and taking the way of Jesus seriously.

But it doesn’t stop there. We believe that every follower of Jesus should be equipped to join the mission of Jesus through tangible acts of mercy, compassion, and love, demonstrating the heart of God to the world.
What does it mean for you to find and follow Jesus Christ and be a part of his mission here? Read More
