Hope Church Jersey City

ABOUT

HopeJC-054.jpg

We are a community called to connect people to

Christ’s tangible love

 
 

CHRIST

We are all about Jesus. He is the center of all that we do at Hope. We believe He is the Way, the Truth and the Life—for it is through him that we find the one and true God.

 

CELEBRATION

Christ was so lavishly generous that he came in time to rescue us, therefore we have no choice but to celebrate. In a region marked by cynicism and anxiety, celebrating the person and work of Jesus moves us towards delight and wonder.

COMMUNITY

Life change can only happen in community. Therefore we long to build and cultivate friendships with people we live in close proximity. As we seek to embrace our common humanity and brokenness, together we can acknowledge our desperate need for God.

COMPASSION

God is at work to heal and renew the world. We have the greatest privilege in joining him in the work of making all things new. So we do justice and compassion, engage in social and cultural renewal, and commit to pray and live for the flourishing of our City and our world.

  • the church as a fellowship of believers

  • a conscious dependence on the Holy Spirit

  • the reality of freedom in Christ

  • the centrality of the word of God
