Mission of HopeSpring
We exist to glorify God by proclaiming and treasuring Jesus Christ as supreme in all things for the hope of all people.
To Glorify God
The ultimate goal of our mission is the glory of God. We were created
for His glory, the church was founded for His glory, and we will enjoy
His glory forever.
"That we who were the first to hope in Christ might be to the praise of his glory" (Ephesians 1:12)
By Proclaiming and Treasuring Jesus Christ
God is most glorified by a people who proclaim and
treasure Jesus Christ and His gospel. Proclaiming is the preaching,
teaching, and witnessing of the Living Word through the written Word.
Treasuring is loving, obeying, living for, being satisfied in, and
worshiping Jesus Christ supremely.
therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them... teaching
them to observe all that I have commanded you" (Matthew 28:19-20)
"Love the Lord your God with all your heart" (Mark 12:30)
"For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also" (Matthew 6:21)
As Supreme In All Things
Jesus Christ is the center of all things, superior to all things,
unsurpassed in greatness above all things, and sovereign over all
things. He is supreme because He is God Himself, the creating and
sustaining Lord of creation, and the Head of the Church.
"That in everything he might be preeminent" (Colossians 1:18)
For the Hope of All People
We proclaim and treasure Jesus Christ as Supreme so that we and others
would fully hope in Jesus Christ alone for this life and the next. This
a hope that begins with saving faith in Christ as Lord and Savior. This
hope continues on in full confidence in God and the certainty of His
promises in Christ. This hope is fully persuaded that the glory of
Jesus Christ is far more satisfying than anything in this life.
"May the God of
hope fill you with all joy and peace in believing, so that by the power
of the Holy Spirit you may abound in hope" (Romans 15:13)
