Identity
 
Our hope in God is the core of our identity. It is the foundation from which every other characteristic springs. All that we have in Christ cannot be summed up in one page, however, the center of our hope is that Jesus Christ has taken our punishment so that our sins, shame, weakness and mistakes are all forgiven if we believe in Him. Building on this hope is that
the Holy Spirit is within all who believe and enables them to grow into all that God is calling them to be.
 
This hope forms the three fold mission of Hope Lutheran Church. In this hope we see God’s sacred nature, His holiness, His mercy, and His gifts towards us. We see this and we love God. Love for God inspires us and His kingdom is our calling.
 
Because we love God we love people. We recall how God loves us in our own weaknesses and we offer that same love to all in the same spirit so that they too may find hope for their lives in Jesus Christ.

Our hope also calls us to action. God’s Holy Spirit empowers us to grow and serve. As we become disciples of Christ and in turn help others become his disciples, we each find the unique role God has for us to fill the needs of those suffering around us.
 
 
WE BELIEVE
in the Triune God, the one God who exists in three eternal Persons-Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. We believe that God the Son (Jesus) became a man, died for our sins and rose from the dead, and through Him alone one can receive the forgiveness of sins and eternal life. We believe that faith in Christ is necessary for salvation and those without Christ will not be saved. We believe we are saved by the unmerited grace of God and not by our good deeds. We believe that good deeds are the evidence of our faith.
The Association of Free Lutheran Churches (AFLC)
The AFLC is a fellowship of independent congregations, who have chosen to be interdependent for the purpose of accomplishing service in the Kingdom of God that cannot best be done alone. The Association of Free Lutheran Congregations (AFLC) was organized in 1962 by 40-50 congregations of the former Lutheran Free Church (LFC), and has grown to become the fourth largest Lutheran church body in the United States with over 270 member congregations.  www.AFLC.org
