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.

Ask God First
Read Joshua 9:1 through 12:24
Published: Feb 25, 2017
Has deception ever led you to do something you later regretted? Sometimes, a situation appears simple and innocent when it really isn’t. Only in the aftermath is the error realized. Of course, who could be faulted in such a situation? Don’t be fooled. Using self-deception to soothe a guilty conscience will not bring about the righteous life that God desires. Confessing sin and seeking God after a poor choice will not necessarily eliminate the ramifications of a bad decision, but the experience might teach that seeking God first is always prudent.
The Israelites sampled their provisions but did not inquire of the Lord (Joshua 9:14).
Israel’s failure to seek God first cost the nation for decades. The believer need not experience such a disaster in life. Through regular communion with God and an understanding of His Word, the believer has opportunities to receive direction and, if necessary, correction. Relying on the wisdom of the Almighty is the best defense in an unscrupulous world.
Challenge for Today: When faced with an important decision, seek God’s counsel.
Quicklook: Joshua 9:9–17
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.
