THE GLEN HOPE BAPTIST CHURCH MISSION
Love God. Love People. Share Jesus. Make Disciples.
Our mission is given by our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ in the Great Commandment and the Great Commission. This mission sets the stage for every ministry, program and activity we develop, support or manage at Glen Hope Baptist Church.
THE GREAT COMMANDMENT
(Mat 22:36-40 NIV) "Teacher, which is the greatest commandment in the Law?“ Jesus replied: "'Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind.‘ This is the first and greatest commandment. And the second is like it: 'Love your neighbor as yourself.‘ All the Law and the Prophets hang on these two commandments.“
THE GREAT COMMISSION
(Mat 28:19-20 NIV) Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age."
Share Jesus. Make Disciples.
We build upon that mission with six core values. These core values focus our members’ energies on developing our church family and working outside the walls of our church to minister to a hurting world. Everything we do flows out of these core values.
Commitment to Scripture
Glen Hope is built upon the Word of God. Since our founding in 1927, we have never wavered nor compromised on the inspired, infallible and inerrant Word of God. We are committed to accurately teaching and preaching Holy Scripture at every opportunity.
We place a high value on the Word of God. Are you hungry for God’s Word? Do you desire to know God’s will for your life? Then, get into God’s Word today. Join with the Psalmist in saying: “Your Word is a lamp to my feet and a light to my path.” Psalm 119:105
Culture of Prayer
Our church is committed to integrating prayer into every aspect of our ministry. Jeremiah 33:3 says, “Call to Me and I will answer you, and show you great and mighty things, which you do not know.” We humbly realize our dependence upon the Lord.
We strive to make Glen Hope a house of prayer. We want it to be part of our culture every minute of every day. Every prayer is a statement of our dependency upon God.
Lifestyle of Worship
Any time the word “worship” is mentioned in Christian circles, the first thing that comes to the minds of most believers is “music” – the praise and worship songs we sing on Sunday mornings. While it is true that we can find great joy in worshipping God through music, the very act of worship is not to be limited to a song or a series of songs on Sunday morning. True worship of God is to be reflected in our lifestyle in every moment… in every decision…in every relationship.
Matthew 22:37 says, “You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, with all your soul, and with all your mind.” “All” is not limited to Sunday mornings – “all” is everything we have, every moment we are given and in every situation that God brings into our path. What a responsibility! At Glen Hope, we are asking God to create a desire within all of us to honor, glorify and praise God through our lives.
Connection to Community
We were never supposed to live the Christian life alone. We are to “bear one another’s burdens, and so fulfill the law of Christ.” (Galatians 6:2) At Glen Hope, we value each member’s commitment to loving and serving each other. Yes, we do this on Sunday morning, but we also strive to support each other during the week.
One of the best ways to experience this type of community is to be connected in a Sunday School class. These small groups meet on Sunday mornings. These groups allow you to develop authentic, deep relationships that encourage you, as you are an encouragement to others.
Heart for Serving
Built upon the principles in John 13, Acts 2 and Ephesians 2 & 4, we are to serve one another in the body of Christ. Jesus commanded us to love one another. One of the most practical ways we can truly love our brothers and sisters in Christ is to serve each other using the spiritual gifts that God has given to us.
Come let us help you discover your spiritual gift and look for areas where you can serve. Let’s all commit to serving each other as Christ has commanded us to do.
Passion for Sharing
Passion for Sharing takes us outside the walls of our church. Glen Hope wants to compassionately serve our local community, as well as, actively participate in missions around the world. We want to reach our city and the “uttermost parts of the earth”.
Jesus was moved with compassion as He ministered to the multitudes. Romans 10:14 reminds us: “How then shall they call on Him in whom they have not believed? And how shall they believe in Him of whom they have not heard? And how shall they hear without a preacher?” We are committed to following His example by intentionally developing relationships that ‘earn’ us the right to actively share the Gospel.
