Through the power of GOD's Spirit in us and the clarity and understanding of His Word, the mission of the Door of HOPE Christian Church is to bring the people of the world into harmony and friendship with GOD. (IICor. 5:18)
Our purpose at the Door of HOPE Christian Church is to equip and empower individuals to develop meaningful and enduring relationships with our GOD and one another. (Rom. 12:1-5, ICor. 12:12-27)
In fulfilling our mission and purpose, there are four major components, we call them values, and they are at the center of all decisions made in our services to the LORD and His people. They are:
WORSHIP of our GOD!
"But the hour cometh, and now is, when the true worshippers shall worship the Father in spirit and in truth: for the Father seeketh such to worship Him. GOD is a Spirit: and they that worship Him must worship Him in spirit and in truth." - John 4:23-24
"Let every thing that hath breath praise the LORD. Praise ye the LORD."
- Psalms 150:6
INSTRUCTION in GOD's Word!
"Search the scriptures; for in them you think you have eternal life..."
- John 5:39
"Study to show yourself approved unto GOD, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth." - IITim. 2:15
FELLOWSHIP with our Christian family!
"And they continued stedfastly in the apostles doctrine and fellowship, and in breaking of bread, and in prayers...And they continuing daily with one accord in the temple, and breaking bread from house to house, did eat their meat with gladness and singleness of heart, praising GOD, and having favour with all the people..." - Acts 2:42-47
EVANGELISM to the world!
"You are the light of the world. A city that is set on an hill cannot be hid...Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father which is in heaven." Matt. 5:14-16
JESUS CHRIST said to them, "Go into all the world and preach the good news to all creation. Whoever believes and is baptized will be saved, but whoever does not believe will be condemned." - Mark 16:15-16NIV
As we operate in these areas of Christian living the members of the Door Of HOPE Christian Church are strengthened and equipped to fulfill GOD's divine PURPOSE, PLAN, and WILL for their lives. Independently individuals become secure in who they are and in GOD's grace. Interdependently we work together to accomplish more for the Kingdom of GOD.
Wherever there is GOD there is HOPE!
