WELCOME TO CENTER OF HOPE
We are a family of believers that are being transformed by the love of God.
We have found that God truly loves us and has a plan of life and hope for each one of us. Each one has a testimony of how God has healed, delivered, provided, protected or helped them.
Jesus Christ died on the cross for us so that we can receive new life, hope and help.
You can find new life.
You can find hope.
You can find a place to belong.

Read 2 Samuel 3:6 through 5:16; Luke 12:1–21
Each year the Hake family enjoyed the birds that feasted at feeders in their yard. Pigeons, doves, blackbirds, finches, chickadees, grosbeaks, juncos, and sparrows all visit the feeders.
One year an unwelcome guest—a sparrow hawk—appeared and began swooping down upon unsuspecting birds. He would grab one with his talons and carry it up to a fir tree to devour. Once the sparrow hawk killed a pigeon as big as he was.
The family wanted to discourage the predator and save the remaining sparrows. A bird expert advised them to quit feeding the birds for two weeks. Then the birds would seek food elsewhere, and the raptor would too. This solution worked, and the family soon resumed feeding the birds.
“Are not five sparrows sold for two pennies? Yet not one of them is forgotten by God. . . . you are worth more than many sparrows” (Luke 12:6–7).
God cares for sparrows and for all His creation, especially those created in His image. Never fear—God will provide all you need. Trust Him.
Prayer Suggestion: God, thank You for meeting my needs.
Quicklook: Luke 12:6–12

Two years after the founding of the Assemblies of God, members adopted 16 beliefs for the Fellowship. This list, known as the Statement of Fundamental Truths, remains virtually unchanged. Four of these beliefs are considered the major tenets of the Fellowship. They are:
1. Salvation Through Jesus Christ (John 3:3, 16, 17; Romans 10:13; Ephesians 2:8, 9)
Salvation is received through repentance toward God and faith toward the Lord Jesus Christ. By the washing of regeneration and renewing of the Holy Spirit, being justified by grace through faith, man becomes an heir of God, according to the hope of eternal life.
2. Baptism in the Holy Spirit (Acts 1:8; 2:4; 17, 18, 38, 39)
All believers are entitled to and should ardently expect and earnestly seek the promise of the Father, the baptism in the Holy Spirit and fire, according to the command of our Lord Jesus Christ. This was the normal experience of all in the early Christian Church. With it comes the enduement of power for life and service, the bestowment of the gifts and their uses in the work of the ministry.
3. Divine Healing for the Sick (James 5:14-16)
Divine healing is an integral part of the gospel. Deliverance from sickness is provided for in the atonement, and is the privilege of all believers.
4. The Second Coming of Christ (1 Thessalonians 4:14-16; 1 Corinthians 15:51, 52)
The second coming of Christ includes the rapture of the saints, which is our blessed hope, followed by the visible return of Christ with His saints to reign on earth for one thousand years.
