Hope City Church has been serving and worshipping in South Louisville for 100 years, and we hope to be here 100 years from now.
We believe that church should be more than a service—it’s a family. More than just attending a church service we want to help you find people you love and who love you. So we can help each other keep the faith.
While every church has a lot in common, we believe each church aslo has unqiue qualities, passions, and people that make them unique. Our values represent who we are and who we hope to be.
We are a praying church. First because Jesus told us to. He said, “My house will be called a house of prayer.” (Matthew 21:13) But also, because we believe that real spiritual progress can only come from God. So we pray because we want to know Him, and we believe that he can do more in a moment thatn we can do in a lifetime.
We are a serving church. Jesus said that love is what proves we are His disciples (John 13:35). We serive on Sundays to help build the church, but we also partner with local non profits to make our city better. We blieve that faith in jesus doesn’t just change your heart, but it moves your hands too.
We are a church that suffers together. While everyone must endure pain in life, we believe that Christians have a hope that no one else has because we know that God is working everything together for our good in this life or the next. (Romans 8:28) We want to be a church that can grieve, pray, and hope together.
We believe that Jesus makes everything better—lives, families, and a city. So we unapolegtically want to influence as many people as we can to put their faith in Jesus Christ. We strive to be a “city on a hill” (Matthew 5:14-16) in our community that offers intellegent conversation, resources, and service.
We are a generous church. Jesus said that how you spend your money indicates what you love (Luke 12:34) so we give generously because we love His church and want it to flourish. It’s never about equal amounts but equal sacrifice.
