Our Mission

We planted the Hope Baptist Church in Loveland in late 2011 because the vast majority of people in this region don't go to church on a given Sunday. Actually, the Association of Religious Data indicated that over 61% of Northern Coloradoans don't attend any kind of church at all. Maybe you are one of these people. Perhaps you have given up on church. Maybe you have attended church before, but you were not able to find your place, understand the message clearly, or connect with the people in that church. We desire to be a church where the un-churched, the formerly churched, and those wanting to know more about God can find hope, connect with new friends, discover God's plan for their life, and grow spiritually.

At Hope, we seek to develop full-time followers of Christ by implementing three simple principles:

Worship with Hope

Hope Baptist Church has one, all-encompassing mission to glorify God in everything we say and do. The number one obligation of any church is to bring glory to God. Hope Baptist Church is a group of people committed to assembling and publicly worshiping Jesus Christ.

Grow with Hope

Becoming a full-time follower of Christ is about more than just reading the Word of God; it is about living the Word of God. At Hope Baptist Church, we desire to teach truths right from the pages of the Scripture. Then we desire to train each one how he or she can live out those truths in real life in a relevant and meaningful way (Matthew 28:18-19). It is the application of God’s Word into life that produces spiritual growth.

Serve with Hope

We sincerely desire to serve others. Even Jesus said that He "came not to be ministered unto, but to minister, and to give his life a ransom for many" (Matthew 20:28). We desire to care for others in our community and around the world by serving them. In addition, we believe that it is our responsibility and privilege to take God’s Word across the street to our neighbors and around the world to the untold.

Our Beliefs

We believe that God is one God and eternally exists triunally in three distinct persons, each equal in power and attributes: the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit. We believe that God sovereignly reigns over His kingdom.

We believe in the authority of Scripture. We believe that the Bible is the plenarily and verbally inspired, inerrant, living Word of God. We believe that God has divinely preserved His Word for all people today. We use the Authorized Version for faith and practice in English.

We believe that man is inherently sinful and dead in sin. We believe that any person through repentance and faith can, by grace, receive eternal salvation, which is freely offered through the substitutionary, atoning death of Christ on the cross. Salvation is not earned or deserved. We believe in the bodily resurrection and ascension of Jesus after his death.

We believe in the authority and autonomy of the local church. The primary obligations of the church are assembling together for the purpose of worshiping God, evangelizing the lost, baptizing and discipling of saved persons, caring for the poor, participating in the Lord's Table, and taking seriously the global responsibility to reproduce more churches—glorifying God through each. The church has two offices (pastor and deacon).

We believe in the pre-tribulational rapture of the church. We believe in the visible, personal, and pre-millennial return of Jesus Christ to earth. We believe that all people will spend forever in either a real heaven or in a literal hell.
