What we believe
Statement of Faith
HOPE United Church of Christ is a progressive
Christian voice that welcomes diverse people for
reflection and action.
Rooted in the United Church of Christ, HOPE takes the
Bible seriously, but not literally.
As people who are joyfully and unapologetically
Christian, we pledge ourselves completely to the way
of love. We work to express our love as Jesus taught:
by loving God, neighbor and self.
We unite personal faith with social justice, prayer
with peacemaking and spirituality with action.
We passionately believe in the power of hope.
