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.
Believe for greater things

Left Over but Valuable
Read Amos 5:1 through 9:15
When people make their own clothes, they purchase patterns and material at a fabric store. After selecting the desired fabric, a salesperson unrolls the bolt of cloth to cut off the required yardage. However, occasionally a person can purchase a remnant or a shorter length of fabric that is left after most of the fabric has been removed from a bolt. It is left over to be sure—but still valuable and useful.
Hate evil, love good; maintain justice in the courts. Perhaps the Lord God Almighty will have mercy on the remnant of Joseph (Amos 5:15).
As Amos proclaimed grim judgments on his people, he also offered the hope of mercy for those he called the “remnant of Joseph.” This was a small number of loyal believers that God could preserve. In a way they were like the remnants of cloth—left over, but still valuable. This, of course, is a reassuring message for Amos’ audience and for us today. Indeed, God always preserves His people—for their benefit and His glory.
Prayer Suggestion: Lord, help me trust You even when I seem to be alone in following You.

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.
