Here at Hope we believe that our “WITHness is our witness.”
Withness requires us to be with God and with others. We believe being a community of believers on mission together sharing Christ’s love is one of the primary mechanisms of the local church. It’s when we do this that we see heaven and earth come together so that compassion, mercy and justice are unleashed in the world and lives around us. There are many ways to do this, but we value highly loving others out of the posture of transformational “withness” rather than transactional witness.
There are four primary areas we have identified for avenues in which we can have impact in our world. In Acts 1:8 we see Jesus’ words to his disciples post resurrection, “...and you will be my witnesses in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the ends of the earth.” These four locations serve as a metaphorical map for ways in which we believe God has provided opportunities for us to be “Hope on Mission” together.
