Our Vision

How do we respond when statistics show that Americans have become less trusting of the church?
What about those who see faith as irrelevant?

We believe that God wants Hope Community 
to respond to these questions.

Hope will be a worshipping community where skeptics, believers, the unchurched, dechurched,
those who are busy, stressed and the spiritually curious could find a place to explore faith,
find belonging and experience the hope of Jesus Christ.

Another church?

The population of most cities is growing 8 times faster than we are starting new churches and less than 18% of Americans are connected to a faith community each week. We believe there are great churches in Wilmington and great opportunity to join what God is already doing in the city.

Church planting is the most effective way to reach the unchurched. Dozens of denominational studies have confirmed that the average new church gains most of its new members (60-80%) from the ranks of people who are not attending any worshipping body.
