A Brief History of HOPE

A vision to open a new church in Claymont, DE named HOPE Community Church began in February of 2008 when Bishop Peggy Johnson visited Atonement Church. Bishop Johnson recognized the growth, the changes that were occurring within the church, and posed the question, "Have you ever thought about opening another church?" Actually, Pastor John Hornberger (the lead pastor at Atonement UMC), Amy Peters (assistant pastor of Atonement UMC and now campus pastor of HOPE), and Mark Peters (husband of Amy Peters) had thought about that possibility. So Mark responded, "Yes, we have." From that day forward, HOPE Community church grew to become a reality that is now four years old.

“Without faith it is impossible to please God, because anyone who comes to Him must believe that He exists and that He rewards those who earnestly seek Him.” 
Hebrews 11:6

Dear Brothers and Sisters in Christ,  May these days following Pentecost be ones of great spiritual growth for us. God poured out God’s Divine Spirit on that Day of Pentecost in fulfillment of Jesus’ own prophecy, “If anyone is thirsty, let him come to me and drink. Whoever believes in Me, as the Scripture has said,  streams of living water will flow from within him. ” By this, Jesus meant the Holy Spirit.  This same Holy Spirit has been given to all people who believe in Christ Jesus. We receive(d) the Spirit by faith in Christ and we are filled with God’s Spirit as we choose to live life in the Spirit. We have the very same Spirit of God living in us! WE are born-again, empowered, and living for Jesus! Romans 8:5 (NIV), “Those who live according to the flesh have their minds set on what the flesh desires; but those who live in accordance with the Spirit have their minds set on what the Spirit desires.”  Let us continue to surrender daily to the presence of the Holy Spirit in us. Let us give control of our lives to the Spirit and experience new life, peace, and living-rightly for God, our Savior. So be it.
