Good Hope Presbyterian Church is a congregation of the Presbyterian Church in America (PCA), a denomination committed to preaching the Word of God and upholding the Scriptures as our guide in faith and daily living.
Our church exists to glorify God, and our vision is to be a body that is a worshiping, welcoming, growing, teaching, loving, serving, and sending community of believers, to the glory of God and the promotion of the kingdom of Jesus Christ. We strive to demonstrate our commitment to Jesus Christ, our commitment to our family and the family of believers, and our commitment to the local community and the world throughout our ministries.
The Bible is the inspired and inerrant Word of God, the only infallible rule of faith and practice. There is one God, eternal and self-existing in three persons (Father, Son and Holy Spirit) who are to be equally loved, honored, and adored.
All mankind participated in Adam’s fall from his original sinless state and is thus lost in sin and totally helpless.
The Sovereignty of God
The Sovereign God, for no other reason than His own unfathomable love and mercy, has chosen lost sinners from every nation to be redeemed by the quickening power of the Holy Spirit and through the atoning death and resurrection of His son, Jesus Christ.
Justification is by faith and through it the undeserving sinner is clothed with the righteousness of Christ.
The Perseverance of the Saints
God’s calling is irrevocable. The Holy Spirit will sustain true believers through this life until they are perfected in heaven.
Heaven & Hell
At death the Christian’s soul passes immediately into the presence of God and the unbeliever’s soul is eternally separated from God unto condemnation.
Baptism is a sign of God’s covenant and is properly administered to children of believers in their infancy as well as to those who come as adults to trust in Christ.
The goal of God’s salvation in the life of the Christian is holiness, good works, and service for the glory of God.
Jesus Christ will Return to Earth
Jesus Christ will return to earth, visibly and bodily, at a time when He is not expected, to consummate history and the eternal plan of God.
