ONE HOPE is a movement for community gospel transformation.

We believe the following:

1

There is but one God, eternally existent in three persons: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.

MATTHEW 28:19; JOHN 10:30; EPHESIANS 4:4-6

2

The Bible to be the inspired, infallible, authoritative Word of God.

1 THESSALONIANS 2:13; 2 TIMOTHY 3:15-17; JOHN 3:16

3

In the deity of the Lord Jesus Christ, in His virgin birth, in His sinless life, in His miracles, in His atoning death through His shed blood on the cross, in His bodily resurrection, in His ascension to the right hand of the Father, and in His personal return.

MATTHEW 1:23; JOHN 1:1-4 and 1:29; ACTS 1:11 and 2:22-24; ROMANS 8:34; 1 CORINTHIANS 15:3-4; 2 CORINTHIANS 5:21; PHILIPPIANS 2:5-11; HEBREWS 1:1-4 and 4:1

4

That all of humanity is lost and faces the judgment of God, that Jesus Christ is the only way of salvation, and that for the salvation of lost and sinful man, repentance of sin and faith in Jesus Christ results in regeneration by the Holy Spirit. Furthermore, we believe that God will reward the righteous with eternal life in heaven.

LUKE 24:46-47; JOHN 14:6; ACTS 4:12; ROMANS 3:23; 2 CORINTHIANS 5:10-11; EPHESIANS 1:7 and 2:8-9; TITUS 3:4-7

5

In the present ministry of the Holy Spirit, whose indwelling enables the Christian to live a godly life and gives evidence to salvation.

JOHN 3:5-8; ACTS 1:8 and 4:31; ROMANS 8:9, 8:16; 1 CORINTHIANS 2:14; GALATIANS 5:16-18; EPHESIANS 6:12; COLOSSIANS 2:6-10

6

In the spiritual unity of believers in the Lord Jesus Christ and that all true believers are members of His body, the one true church.

1 CORINTHIANS 12:12, 27; EPHESIANS 1:22-23

7

In sharing and proclaiming the message of salvation only possible by grace through faith in Jesus Christ and discipleship (helping followers of Christ grow up into maturity in Christ) is a responsibility of all followers of Jesus Christ.

MATTHEW 28:18-20; ACTS 1:8; ROMANS 10:9-15; 1 PETER 3:15

8

That as Christ followers we must dedicate ourselves to prayer, to the service of our Lord, to His authority over our lives.

MATTHEW 9:35-38, 22:37-39, and 28:18-20; ACTS 1:8; ROMANS 10:9-15 and 12:20-21; GALATIANS 6:10; COLOSSIANS 2:6-10; 1 PETER 3:15
