Our Heart

 

Here at Hope Community Church, we believe the message about Jesus is a message of hope for all people. We want to give everyone in Wigston the opportunity to hear about this.
Because of this, we want to be:

An authentic community…
The gospel shows us that all of us have flaws, failings and faults yet, in Jesus we can find healing, restoration and a new way to live. Therefore we believe church should be a place where we don’t have to pretend to be perfect! Instead, we come as we are, accept people as they are, use the gifts he has given us, and we work together on the slow journey of becoming more like Jesus, whoever we are and wherever we come from.

…of extravagant worshippers…
We believe in a God who has given to us extravagantly, and so we want our response to be extravagant. We believe worship is a lifestyle of devotion to God, and so we want to live every day with an attitude of worship to God. And when we do get together to sing, we want to do so in a way that reflects all that God has done for us.

…shaped by the Word…
We believe that when the Bible speaks, God speaks. Therefore, we want to be a people utterly devoted to mining the truths found in scripture, both personally, in small groups and as a church family. We want to be a people transformed as we see the glory of Christ revealed through God’s precious Word.

…moving in the Spirit…
We want to be a people open to whatever the Spirit has for us. We believe that God empowers his church for mission and service through the Holy Spirit as he gives the full range of gifts described in scripture. And when we meet as a church family, we expect to encounter the Holy Spirit in life-changing ways.

…driven by prayer…
We want to be a people whose first instinct is always to pray because we know that, without prayer, we are helpless, through prayer, all things are possible. We believe that prayer is the fundamental expression of our dependence on God, and that God loves to answer our prayers with a Father’s heart.

…serving our community.
We long to see God’s kingdom come in greater measure in Wigston. We believe God’s Word calls us to bring blessing and hope to the last, the least and the lost both physically and spiritually. So we will continually seek ways to share the love of Christ practically with our community, and will take every opportunity to proclaim him as we do that.
