WELCOME TO CHRIST OUR HOPE
Welcome to Christ Our Hope. We’re glad you’re interested in learning more about our church. It is our joy to participate in God’s kingdom work of announcing the Good News of Jesus Christ to Wake Forest, alongside other faithful churches in our city.
Christ Our Hope is not just the name of our church, it is a reminder of our core conviction. In all of life’s joys and sorrows, the God of Truth gives us great reason for hope. We believe that there is power in Jesus’ grace to bring about renewal in our individual lives, our church, and our world. Each week we gather to be transformed by God’s Word – to be reminded that the Gospel has delivered us out of our sins and into the redeemed family of God. Just as importantly, we are sent out each week as a transforming community, using every circumstance in our lives as an opportunity to glorify God and announce His kingdom to a broken world.
We summarize these key ideals in a simple motto: Transformed Lives, Transforming Community. We hope you join us and consider making us your church family. We’re not perfect, but fortunately we’ve been saved by the One who is.
“And hope does not disappoint us, because God has poured out his love into our hearts by the Holy Spirit, whom he has given us. You see, at just the right time, when we were still powerless, Christ died for the ungodly.” (Rom 5.5-6).
