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 Greatest Birthday
Read Luke 1:1 through 2:52
Carla woke up, washed the sleep out of her eyes, and realized today was her sixtieth birthday. She thought back over her life and remembered many good times and some not-so-good times. She then began to think of another birthday—one so important that the world would forever be changed.
She [Mary] gave birth to her firstborn, a son. She wrapped him in cloths and placed him in a manger, because there was no guest room available for them (Luke 2:7).
The King of kings did not enter the world at a magnificent palace or a pristine house of worship. Rather He was born in a place that housed livestock and was placed in a manger. From that humble beginning Christ experienced life as any other person would. Then as an adult He proclaimed God’s great love for humanity and His plan of salvation sealed with Christ’s own blood.
No birthday impacted the world so greatly as the humble birth Luke records. God’s gift to the world should be remembered beyond the celebration of Christmas.
Prayer Suggestion: Thank the Father for sending His Son into the world.
Quicklook: Luke 2:1–7

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.
