A Disciple is follower of the Lord Jesus Christ. The literal translation means “a learner.”
Hopewell wants to help you answer the question, “What does it mean to be a fully engaged follower of Jesus?”
We believe salvation is just the beginning point of serving the Lord. Service is a hallmark of the Christian life. We are not saved by works (Ephesians 2:8-9) but we work because we are saved and love the Lord and desire to follow His example. (Mark 10:45).
At Hopewell, we also believe that life is better connected. We desire for disciples at Hopewell to make connections. We want all believers to be Connected to Christ (salvation), Connected to the Church (Membership and Sunday School), Connected to Ministry (service), and Connected to the Community (outreach and missions).
