Community At Hope
We often joke at Hope that “Community is our middle name.” All we have to offer at Hope is gospel and community. It’s not an option for us.
Through loving relationships and the community created at Hope Community Church, we aim to make fully devoted followers of Jesus Christ who would engage in knowing Jesus Christ through study and service. We highly value the smaller groups (mentorship relationships, small groups, etc.) that can help facilitate these kind of life long, authentic, God-centered friendships.
Welcome! We’re thrilled to have you consider joining with us as we seek to honor God by helping as many people as possible become fully devoted followers of Jesus Christ.
Becoming a member of Hope Community Church is a commitment to the work of the gospel and the common good of the Hope family. We are one body, and in a healthy body, every member must function (Romans 12:4). Members also benefit from primary care from church leadership, as the Bible prescribes (Galatians 6:10).
We offer two primary ways
to become a member.
First, keep watch on the City for announcements on upcoming Covenant Membership courses.

Why does Hope Community have “covenant members”?
Hope Community is a church, and the Bible uses the metaphor of a body to describe the church: “For just as the body is one and has many members, and all the members of the body, though many, are one body, so it is with Christ’’ (1 Cor. 12:12). It’s a beautiful illustration of how we’re each created to serve different functions, we need everyone to function in order to be a healthy body, and all of us as separate parts find purpose and unity under Jesus, “the head of the body, the church’’ (Col. 1:18). Members are the church (Eph. 2:19-22).
