Our Mission

Our Mission at Hope is to proclaim God's Law and Gospel faithfully according to His holy, inerrant Word to all people so that they may be led to confess Jesus as their Savior by the power of the Holy Spirit. 


We at Hope also seek to strengthen each member and one another in the Christian faith and encourage each other in Christian living through the Gospel in Word and Sacraments.


We are dedicated to knowing Jesus Christ and making him known to others!



what we believe

About the Bible:


We believe, teach, and confess that the prophetic and apostolic writings of the Old and New Testaments are the only rule and norm according to which all doctrines and teachers alike must be appraised and judged, as it is written in Ps. 119:105, “Thy word is a lamp to my feet and a light to my path.” And St. Paul says in Gal. 1:8, “Even if an angel from heaven should preach to you a gospel contrary to that which we preached to you, let him be accursed.”


About Communion:


We believe that the Lord's Supper is the truth body and blood of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ in, with, and under the bread and wine. Partaking of this meal is not just a symbolic act but the actual eating and drinking of the body and blood for the forgiveness of sins. For this reason and the warnings associated with this and the unity that is confessed by partaking of this meal here, we practice closed communion in accordance with the teachings of the Lutheran Church-Missouri Synod.
