Hope Chapel exists to win the lost and equip God's people for works of service through Teaching, Fellowship, Breaking of Bread, Prayer and Praising God. Eph 4:12,13; Acts 2:42,47, 2Thes 1:3-4, 1Tim 1:5.
Teaching in our large gathering is characterized by God's Word expressed in clear everyday language. Practical application is stressed in the small home groups we call Mini-Churches. The kids in our Sunday School and Youth Groups are taught in the same way.
Fellowship in the Holy Spirit is a result of people committing themselves to real love, understanding and acceptance of each other. This extends from the mutual support of the other churches in our denomination.
Breaking of Bread is remembering the Lord's death and promise as we share communion and eat together in each other's homes, at love feasts, or even over "cups of coffee" at restaurants.
Prayer is talking to God and expressing our dependence on Him. We encourage the sick to ask the leaders to pray for them. We teach Christians to pray with each other and consistently spend personal time with God.
Praising God is attributing worth to the Father for His graciousness to us, to Jesus for His sacrifice for us, and to the Holy Spirit for His work in us. This includes singing, verbal worship, applause, lifting hands, and offering our lives for service.
