To see healthy churches and leaders centered on the Lordship of Jesus Christ and empowered by the Holy Spirit to effectively bring the Gospel to their communities and the world.
HopeNet is an apostolic network of churches and leaders who have chosen relationship to nurture in one another a confident faith, joyful worship, and caring evangelism.
We are called together to pray fervently, proclaim the Gospel, disciple believers, and plant churches.
HopeNet desires to rekindle the Radical Reformation vision of being a faithful and fruitful New Testament people who follow Jesus in all of life. We are committed to encourage one another through personal relationships to follow Christ and carry out the Great Commission by the power of the Holy Spirit.
Communing with God, growing in Christ, believing the Bible, following the Spirit, reaching the world for Christ, serving through the local church, encouraging through community, living generously, and partnering with the Body of Christ.
Caring for Leaders. Those leaders who invest their lives in caring for others in the local church also need to be pastored, nurtured, and cared for by spiritual fathers who believe in them.
Inspirational Fellowship. HopeNet is essentially a catalyst for bringing ministers and churches together in a spirit of unity and community to gather regionally for joyful worship and shoulder to shoulder service in Spirit-led cooperative mission projects.
Multiplying Churches. We sow generously to reap generously. We desire to see multiplication: believers leading others to Christ, small groups expanding, new churches released, and new apostolic networks forming for relationship and mission in new regions.
HopeNet’s faith confession is based on a statement agreed upon by Christians from more than 150 nations who participated in the International Congress on World Evangelism at Lausanne, Switzerland, July 1974.
An “apostolic” movement is characterized by the model of the New Testament apostles: a Christ-centered faith confession, the priority of being sent into mission, and the relational authority of translocal leaders.
A HopeNet Overseer plans events to equip those in the network, helps congregations to fulfill the vision, mission, and the goals the Lord has given to network and assists in planting new congregations of believers. HopeNet’s Advisory Council meets quarterly with the Overseer for accountability and guidance of the network.
Partner Churches. Church bodies who have elected to place themselves in a commitment of apostolic relationship within HopeNet.
Current partner congregations, other than New Life Fellowship, include:
Individual Ministry Partners. Mentoring for persons in translocal, marketplace, parachurch leadership, church planting, or international mission roles.
