Values & Beliefs

 

HCMHope Centre Ministries is a Christian, non-profit, chaplaincy organization that holds to the following Biblical beliefs that relate to individuals living with disabilities:

  • Every human being is wonderfully made; created in God’s image.
  • Salvation is by grace, which is free to everyone as part of a victorious life regardless of the conditions and circumstances in which we find  ourselves.
  • We present the Gospel of Jesus Christ in word and in deed, calling people to discipleship, but leaving to the Holy Spirit the work of conversion.
  • We all have gifts and must take or be given the opportunity to express these gifts in all of life to work for a just and merciful society, to the honour and glory of God.
  • Everyone, regardless of whether or not they have declared their faith in Jesus Christ has the potential to grow and we will encourage them to do so. As Christians we acknowledge that it is Holy Spirit who gives everyone the ability to grow.
  • We, the body of Christ, are one; all participate together to bring him glory.
  • Helping one another is a basic characteristic of Christ’s Church and no one should be made to feel less because they need more support. We realize that all of us need support from time to time.
  • Christ did not come to condemn the world but to save it. We will support, with out being judgmental, all those with whom we come in contact, prayerfully encouraging them to grow as the Holy Spirit guides them.
