Our Core Values

Hope Community Church in Pembroke Pines.

Our Mission
Our Vision

The vision of Hope Community Church looks like this:

Hope will be a place of worship for all who seek God.

Our genuine expression of praise will reflect the diversity of our neighborhood. Worship honors the character of God and celebrates the movement of God in this community and in His people. Jesus will be obvious in all our songs and sermons.

Hope will lead people into a holistic commitment to Jesus.

The Savior of our hearts must rule all the aspects of our lives. We are not a Sunday church.  We are the church all seven days of the week. We will provide Biblical literacy for our people and build authentic relationships that encourage each other to love and to do good works. We will empower people to grow in their relationships with God in a way that impacts all of their relationships with people.

Hope will be a sanctuary for families to thrive to overcome the cultural attacks.

We will provide support for marriages to endure the hard times and grow into deeper intimacy. We will support parents in training their children through grace-based parenting. We understand that single parents need the most love and care, and that people who are single or divorced need a committed community surrounding them. Groups, seminars, counseling, and retreats will be consistently offered to provide multiple access points for families to grow. Our Hope Island themed children’s ministry will teach the gospel in a fun interactive way that engages children to beg their parents to come to church.

Hope was placed here by God to serve Pembroke Pines!

We will be known in our city as a place that welcomes people and as a place that volunteers where the community needs us. Our actions will validate our message. Hope will live out the gospel as much as we preach the gospel. We want the residents of Pembroke Pines to say, “I know that church, they are always helping people.”

We are all about Jesus.

(Colossians 1:14-20) Jesus is our source of life and forgiveness. We do not want to become more religious. We want to follow Jesus with all our heart, mind, soul, and body; and we want to help other people come along with us.

Your family is worth fighting for.

(Joshua 24:15) Our culture is set on destroying your marriage and your family. We believe that our church can be a place of peace for you and your family. God’s Word holds the answers for raising a family and God’s Spirit gives you the power to protect your family.

God loves Pembroke Pines.

(John 3:16) Hope is here to serve our community. Whether you are inside the church or outside the church, God loves you and wants to have a relationship with you. We can show God’s love to our community through witness and service to help our city see Jesus.

We celebrate what God celebrates.

(Luke 15:7) God celebrates when people come to Him. God enjoys His creation and proclaimed that it is very good. We are a church that celebrates when God moves in our midst and when people are obedient to God. The main purpose of man is to obey God and to enjoy him forever.

We become leaders by serving.

(Matthew 20:28) Jesus is the King of kings and He served people in the most humble ways. We are ready to serve one another in any way that God presents to us. Serving is the way to lead. 

God deserves 100%.

(Romans 12:1) Everything we have is a gift from God: our life, our health, our family, our ability, and our money. No matter how much we give, we can’t out-give God. It is not a sacrifice to serve God, it is a privilege.

Our Vision

Partnership

Hope is a member of the Evangelical Presbyterian Church. We are in full agreement with their theological perspectives and church practices. We invite you to read our beliefs and positions here:

Doctrinal Statement

THE BIBLE

We believe the Bible (composed of both the Old and New Testaments) is the authentic, authoritative, infallible and inerrant Word of God. It is the complete revelation of His will for the salvation of all who receive Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior. As such, it is true in everything it affirms and is the divine and final authority for all Christian faith and life.  (1 Thessalonians 2:13; Galatians 1:11–12; 1 Timothy 3:16; 2 Peter 1:20-21; 1 John 5:9; Revelation 22:18–19)

GOD

We believe there is only one true God, uncreated, infinitely perfect and sovereign, eternally existent in three distinct persons: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit—the Trinity. He is the Creator and Sustainer of all things. (Genesis 1:1; John 10:30, John 10:37-38; Deuteronomy 6:4; Matthew 28:19, 2 Corinthians 13:14, Colossians 1:16-17)

JESUS CHRIST

We believe in the divine nature of Jesus Christ. He is perfectly God and perfectly man, having been conceived of the Holy Spirit and born of a virgin. He lived a sinless life and died on the cross as the only acceptable sacrifice for our sins as prophesied throughout the Old Testament Scriptures. He physically resurrected from the dead, ascended into heaven with all authority, to the right hand of God the Father, where he now intercedes for every believer. He will return to earth, visibly and physically, in power and glory. (John 1:1; Isaiah 7:14; Matthew 1:23; Luke 1:35; Hebrews 4:14-15; Hebrews 7:25-26; 1 Corinthians 15:3-4; John 2:11; Hebrews 9:12; Ephesians 1:7,20; Mark 16:19; Colossians 1:14; John 11:25; Acts 1:11; Revelation 19:11-16)

THE HOLY SPIRIT

We believe in the active power of the Holy Spirit and his ministry of glorifying the Lord Jesus Christ and in this present age to regenerate and convict the sinner’s heart to repent and believe in Christ alone for salvation. Then, to continually indwell, guide, instruct, and empower the believer for Godly living and service. (Titus 3:5; John 15:26; John 16:8; Ephesians 5:18; Ephesians 4:30; 1 Corinthians 3:16, 1 Corinthians 6:19-20)

SIN & SALVATION

We believe man was created perfect, in the image of God, but fell into sin and is, therefore, lost. Due to this, every person born is by nature a sinner and deserving of God’s justice and wrath. Only through regeneration by the Holy Spirit can the gracious gift of eternal salvation be received and spiritual new life be obtained, by trusting only in the atoning blood sacrifice of Jesus Christ. Neither by works, nor by any other means, is there salvation apart from Jesus Christ. (Genesis1:27; Romans 5:12; John 3:16-19, 5:24; Romans 3:19,23; 5:8-9; Ephesians 2:8-10; Titus 3:5-6; Acts 4:12)

BAPTISM & THE LORD’S SUPPER

We believe that water baptism and the Lord’s Supper (Communion) for the believer are sacraments to be observed by the church during the present age. They serve as visible signs of God’s promises accomplished in Jesus Christ. While important, they are not to be regarded as means of salvation. (Matthew. 28:19; Romans 6:4; 1 Corinthians 11:23; Ephesians 4:5)

RESURRECTION/LIFE AFTER DEATH

We believe in the bodily resurrection of the dead. The Christian believer is raised to everlasting life and joy with Jesus Christ, while the unrepentant sinner is raised to judgment and everlasting punishment. 

(1 Thessalonians 4:13-18; John 5:28-29; 1 Corinthians 3:11-15; Revelation 20:11-15; 1 Corinthians 15:51-54)

THE CHURCH

We believe the true church is composed of all people, who through saving faith in Jesus Christ, have been born-again by the power of Holy Spirit and are united in the body of Christ of which He is the Head. The church consistently lives in light of its mission to glorify God, proclaim the gospel, and make disciples.

(1 Corinthians 12:12-14; Romans 8:9; Galatians 3:26-28: Matthew 28:19-20)

SANCTITY OF LIFE

We believe the creation of all human life from first to last, is by the direct act of God and made in his image. Human life is therefore sacred and of immeasurable value in all its forms, including pre-born babies, the elderly, the physically or mentally challenged, and any other stage or condition from conception through natural death. As image-bearers of God and followers of Christ, we are thus called to defend, protect, and highly esteem all human life.  (Genesis 1:18-26, Genesis 5:1-2; Psalm 139:13-16; John 10:10)

HUMAN SEXUALITY

We believe that God has uniquely created us male and female, and we affirm that God’s plan and beautiful design for human sexuality are found within the context of Christian marriage between one man and one woman. We affirm the goodness of sexuality in the context of Christian marriage, the importance of purity, fidelity, and the sacredness of marriage. Furthermore, we affirm that God alone has decreed in his eternal wisdom he who is naturally and biologically male and she who is naturally and biologically female, affirmed from birth and not of any human choice or intervention. Thus, we disagree with any alteration of the divinely created human form to represent something other than what Scripture defines as male and female. (Genesis 1:26-27; Genesis 2:23-24; Matthew 19:4-5; Mark 10:6-9, Jude 7).
