The call of God on the church is to go and make disciples. We believe God has given us a vision for a church of 500 disciples with a community focused building for 500. We believe God has called us to create an environment for significant growth by:
- Being Engaged – where every member of the church according to their passions, temperament and gifting are fully engaged in the life of the church and its mission into the community.
- Being Excellent – where we seek to pursue excellence in our delivery of all aspects of church life.
- Being External – where our focus is to practically care and provide for the needs present in our community, build authentic relationships and give all the opportunity to experience the Kingdom of God and respond to it.
We are a member of the Evangelical Alliance, the largest body serving evangelical Christians in the UK: working for a united Church, confident in voice and inspired for mission. We subscribe to the Evangelical Alliance basis of faith.
Hope Community Church is part of a wider Apostolic family known as Relational Mission, an initiative of Newfrontiers. Relational Mission presently consists of around 50 Churches from the UK, Europe and Canada who look to Mike Betts for Apostolic oversight.
Mission is much more meaningful when shared with dear friends. Relationships prosper wonderfully when there is a shared sense of purpose. We have discovered over the years the fact that we can accomplish more together than we can apart.
We are committed to advancing the Kingdom through restoring the church, making disciples, training leaders, starting churches and reaching the nations.
With Relational Mission we are currently working with 26 church plants in the UK & Internationally.
Hope Community Church is fully committed to safeguarding and promoting the safety and welfare of all its members and visitors, especially children and vulnerable adults, at all times. We expect the whole community to share this commitment, and training, monitoring and reporting procedures are in place to ensure this commitment is realised.
