Habakkuk 3:2--Lord, I have heard of your fame; I stand in awe of your deeds, O Lord. Renew them in our day, in our time make them known; in wrath remember mercy.
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.

Only through Jesus
Read Ephesians 1:1 through 3:21
When Virginia needed transportation to an appointment, Debby volunteered to take her. Through the years their friendship blossomed and eventually their conversations included spiritual concerns.
When Debby talked about heaven, Virginia’s comment was always the same: “I hope I’m good enough to go to heaven.” Debby explained that it was impossible to earn a place in heaven. It was only through Jesus’ death, resurrection, and offer of salvation that anyone could enter heaven.
For it is by grace you have been saved, through faith—and this is not from yourselves, it is the gift of God—not by works, so that no one can boast (Ephesians 2:8–9).
Virginia is now in her mid-nineties. When asked about going to heaven, she no longer says, “I hope I’m good enough to go,” because Virginia now has assurance that through her acceptance of Jesus Christ she can say with a certainty, “I know I will go to heaven.”
You, too, can have that assurance. If you have not accepted Jesus’ offer of salvation, do so today.
Thought for Today: With Jesus all things are possible.
Quicklook: Ephesians 2:4–10

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.
