About Hope Waldheim Church

Our Beliefs

We believe the Bible is the source of our worldview.

At Hope Church, we believe that while the Bible was written by real people throughout history, God inspired them with the words to write, making the Bible His Word to us as well. Because of this, the Bible has the final say in our lives and beliefs.

“All Scripture is breathed out by God and profitable for teaching, for reproof, for correction, and for training in righteousness”2 Timothy 3:16 (ESV)
We believe that our members have a say in our church functions.
22 Then it seemed good to the apostles and the elders, with the whole church, to choose men from among them and send them to Antioch with Paul and Barnabas. They sent Judas called Barsabbas, and Silas, leading men among the brothers,”Acts 15:22 (ESV)
We believe every Christian has a direct connection to God through Jesus.

We believe that as a result of the work of Jesus Christ on the cross 2000+ years ago, the direct connection between God and humans that was once broken due to sin, has been made possible again. Therefore, we no longer need a priest to speak to God on our behalf; we can communicate with God ourselves.

16 Let us then with confidence draw near to the throne of grace, that we may receive mercy and find grace to help in time of need.”Hebrews 4:16 (ESV)
9 But you are a chosen race, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, a people for his own possession, that you may proclaim the excellencies of him who called you out of darkness into his marvelous light.”1 Peter 2:9 (ESV)
We believe in an Individual/Personal Commitment to Christ

We believe we are responsible for our own commitment to Jesus Christ. No one else can make this decision for us.

12 But to all who did receive him, who believed in his name, he gave the right to become children of God,”John 1:12 (ESV)
We believe in the Believer’s Baptism.

We believe that baptism (immersion in water) is a symbolic public proclamation for someone who has truly believed in Jesus Christ and His work on the cross and has chosen to confess Him as their Lord and Savior.

4 We were buried therefore with him by baptism into death, in order that, just as Christ was raised from the dead by the glory of the Father, we too might walk in newness of life…”Romans 6:4-6 (ESV)

Currently, I am pursuing an MDiv with a specialization in Christian Apologetics from NOBTS. My interests include coffee, playing guitar, and riding my motorcycle. I have passion for reaching the lost with Gospel and equipping others to do so.
