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.

The Art of Knowing
Read Deuteronomy 29:1 through 31:30
John was in a hurry as he drove down Main Street. As he approached an intersection he immediately detected trouble. The traffic light was not glowing—the electricity had gone out.
Drivers in the busy intersection quickly became nervous and unsure. No one seemed to remember how to respond in a busy four-way intersection without the help of the light. Even John, a seasoned driver, had trouble remembering the driving rules he had learned as a teenager.
No, the word is very near you; it is in your mouth and in your heart so you may obey it. See, I set before you today life and prosperity, death and destruction (Deuteronomy 30:14–15).
God’s Word serves as a light to those who choose to follow it. However, when we neglect reading and absorbing God’s Word, we can find ourselves lost and helpless in times of trouble. The purpose of studying Scripture is to take God’s Word to heart—to digest it. Truly knowing God’s Word will serve us well in any situation.
Thought for Today: How often do you read and study God’s Word? How easily can you recall Scripture?
Quicklook: Genesis 30:11–20

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.
