Welcome to Hope Talk
What is Hope Chapel? We are coming up to our Homecoming next month at which we will celebrate the completion of our 9th year and begin our 10th year. Those of you who are receiving this bulletin have chosen to attend, develop as a believer, offer service to others, and love one another in the church. Why are you a part of Hope Chapel? Well, we would begin to answer that question with our Mission Statement: To glorify God by fulfilling the Great Commission: Make Disciples. Or maybe stating our Four Pillars:
1. Proclaiming the authority of God’s Word without apology. (2Tim.4:1-5; Heb.4:12)
2. Lifting high the name of Jesus Christ through worship. (Mk.12:30; Jn.4:23-24; Jn.12:32)
3. Believing firmly in the power of prayer. (Jer.33:3; Eph.6:18; Ja.5:16)
4. Sharing the Good News of Jesus Christ with Boldness. (Matt.9:36-38; Ro.1:16; Eph.6:19-20)
And then follow that up with Three Disciple-Making Principles in Christ: Worship, Walk, Work. Some would remember our Values: Vertical, Personal, Simple but is this how we define ourselves? I do know many of you knew this aspect of Hope Chapel but it is not the reason for joining the church. Ask yourself what is the core aspect of Hope Chapel that made me commit to membership here and even thrive here. Then, after you have that answer, ask why has God brought me to Hope Chapel. What does He want me to do here? What service to others specifically does He desire for me in which to be involved to glorify Him and bless others? Do some thinking and pondering on this.
Also, this Sunday is Communion and Testimonies. How does God want you to encourage, exhort, edify those who will be in the service? What things has God taught you that need to be shared with the Church?
