About Pacific Hope
We believe that in many evangelical churches a deep and broad consensus exists regarding the truths of the gospel. Yet we often see the celebration of our union with Christ replaced by the age-old attractions of power and affluence, or by monastic retreats into ritual, liturgy, and sacrament. What replaces the gospel will never promote a mission-hearted faith anchored in enduring truth working itself out in unashamed discipleship eager to stand the tests of kingdom-calling and sacrifice. We desire to advance along the King’s highway, always aiming to provide gospel advocacy, encouragement, and education so that current- and next-generation church leaders are better equipped to fuel their ministries with principles and practices that glorify the Savior and do good to those for whom He shed His life’s blood (From Gospel Coalition Preamble).
We are a body of believers who are continually reaching up, reaching in, and reaching out. We believe the following are critical in having a Biblically minded community who serve Jesus Christ (the Way, the Truth, and the Life).
Exalting Jesus Christ (The Way)
We are committed to leading the Church through worship, praise, and adoration of God the Father through Jesus Christ our Lord, by the power of the Holy Spirit, as defined within the Scriptures. All ministry flows out of this relationship (Psalm 34).
Expounding God's Word (The Truth):
We are committed to equipping the members of God's family into spiritual maturity and service. From large group gatherings to small group relations, we will be trained by the Word of God for the sake of growing in the grace and knowledge of Jesus Christ (2 TImothy 3:16-17).
Proclaiming the Gospel & Exemplyfying Christ-likeness (The Life):
We desire to take the good news of Jesus Christ out into our communities and spheres of influence (school, work, and everyday life) as we proclaim the Gospel of Jesus Christ, and live lives that exemplify Christ-likeness so that we may, "always be ready to give a defense to everyone who asks you a reason for the hope that is in you, with meekness and fear..." (1 Peter 3:15)
