What We Believe.
Advance Hope Ministries believes the Bible to be the inspired, the only infallible, authoritative Word of God revealing that God is love. 1 Thessalonians 2:13; 2 Timothy 3:15-17; John 3:16, 1 John 4:8
We believe Jesus Christ is the Son of God. We believe Jesus Christ was born of a virgin, lived a sinless life, performed literal miracles, died a blood-atoning death, was bodily resurrected from the grave, ascended to the Father, and will return literally in the future. We believe every person stitched together in his/her mother’s womb is unique, treasured, and precious to God. And since He has created each person, God deeply desires and offers eternal life with Him for every individual who chooses to believe in His Son, Jesus Christ. By this belief, each person can rightfully be called a son/daughter of God. Matthew, Mark, Luke, John, Psalm 139:13, Titus 2:11, 1 John 3:1
Advance Hope Ministries believes that when we choose Jesus, we are co-crucified with Christ; that our old self dies so that the body of sin might be done away with. With that an amazing event takes place: chains are broken and we no longer are mastered or controlled by sin. Instead, we gain a brand-new Master and His name is Jesus. In His mastery, we step into a new life of right-standing with God. A life living out our new commandment of loving one another just as Christ Jesus loves us. Romans 6, Romans 3:22, John 13:34
We believe that the entirety of the Old Testament and the New Testament completes the Gospel which is the Good News, the story of Jesus Christ. While some Scriptures are hard for some to understand in meaning and purpose, every Scripture of the Old and New Testament is vital to the validity of the Gospel. We encourage the Christian to seek the meaning and relevance of each Scripture – without fear – and then adventure into the revelation when given! Revelation comes through prayer, study, and action while being in deep relationship with God the Father, Jesus the Son, and Holy Spirit. 2 Peter 3:16
Advance Hope Ministries seeks to represent the same unity that Jesus Christ prays for us in John, chapter 17. As those found in Christ, indwelled by Holy Spirit and set apart by the Father, we seek to establish unity with all Christian churches and together present ourselves as the unblemished bride for Christ Jesus. Together, we are the Church. 1 Corinthians 12:27, John 17.
Advance Hope Ministries is praying for a cultural shift in the western church – for each worshiper to fully believe in our Christ-purchased clean identity, live in compassionate unity, and experience the resulting profound heart-level freedom. Our core mission is to share that we are all beloved sons and daughters saved by grace alone, without any effort on the part of man. That we all are softly-glowing lamps fueled by the Word of God to light paths for others so that they, too, can find the rest, promises, and eternity of the Father. Psalm 119:105, Hebrews 8:6, Matthew 28, Ephesians 2:8-9
