The mission of HOPE Ministry is: “Extending the radical friendship of Jesus to people living with mental illness and their families by providing transforming love, support and HOPE.”
The heart of HOPE flows from three passages of Scripture:
- " . . . I have called you friends, for everything that I learned from my Father I have made known to you" (John 15:15 NIV)
- " . . . serve one another in love." (Galatians 5:13 NIV)
- "May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace as you trust in Him, so that you may overflow with hope by the power of the Holy Spirit" (Romans 15:13 NIV).
We want to be the hands and feet of Christ by supporting those who are living with a mental illness and their families by making them feel welcomed and loved by the people of our community. Our goal is to remove the stigma often behind mental illness by educating our community and providing transforming love, support and HOPE.
