Hope Community Christian Reformed Church has been worshiping and ministering in Mount Brydges since 1976. We are member of the Christian Reformed Church in North America.
To present the gospel to all people, preparing them to be followers of Jesus Christ.
We strive to be a community of believers that proclaims the Lordship of Jesus Christ, where young and old celebrate the gifts of God and grow in knowledge of His claim on their lives, where the love of Jesus is evident in all their relationships, and where, in the power of the Holy Spirit, there is a passionate commitment to sharing the good news of the gospel.
WHAT WE BELIEVE
We believe in the main fundamentals of the historic Christian faith:
That God created all things good.
That creation (and humanity) turned from God, bringing sin and death in creation.
That God sent Jesus into the world to die for the forgiveness of human sin and to conquer death in the resurrection.
That Jesus ascended into heaven and now rules and governs all things as the King of kings and Lord of lords.
That Jesus will one day come again and renew all things to the goodness that God intended for his creation.
These beliefs are summed up in the historic creeds of the church: The Apostles’ Creed, the Nicene Creed and the Athanasian Creed
As a member of the Christian Reformed Church we also subscribe the following confessions: The Belgic Confession, The Heidelberg Catechism and The Canons of Dordt.
