The Community of Hope are a group of Christians from various evangelical churches committed to encouraging the nurture, growth and spiritual healing of the whole person. We affirm and celebrate what Jesus Christ taught and practiced, and believe the meaning of life and the answers to mankind's deepest needs are found in following him.
In new age settings there are all kinds of philosophies and different ways of thinking. We encourage presenters to listen but no to agree with the various ideas, instead affirming their open minds or willingness to explore ideas. This builds mutual respect and provides presenters with a platform to share our 'ideas' also. Since the beginning, we have been astounded at the acceptance and success of the methods.
Involvement in local festivals, markets and events also creates opportunities for churches to build bridges in the community and be relevant in today's society. We believe the potential to bring the Gospel to searching people far outweighs any dangers of involvement – “You are from God and have overcome them, because the one who is in you is greater than the one who is in the world (1 John 4:4 NIV).
