This is the home of Angels of Hope Church of Christ. We hope you will make this your "church home" on the Internet!
Welcome, and thanks for stopping by this web-based church! Everyone is welcome here, regardless of whatever our differences may be.
This is the Internet home for Angels of Hope Church of Christ. This church was started July 1, 2010, and is dedicated to the Glory of God, and the sovereignty of Jesus of Nazareth, the Christ... from which we get our name.
As with the other churches of Christ, we believe in "speaking what the Bible speaks, and being silent where the Bible is silent". In other words, where the Bible advocates a specific decision, so does this church... where a decision is not implied by the Bible, it's obviously left up to the individual follower of Christ; and, therefore, not incumbent on the church itself. As a result, we don't have church-sponsored instrumental music, though we do allow members to come in and present their instrumental works as a glory to God. We do believe in immersion baptism, and that ONLY of repentant believers. We do believe that God will judge our faithfulness by our works, as James - along with other apostles, and Christ Himself, - tells us is so. Most of all, we believe that we are commissioned to love God with all our heart, soul, mind and strength; and to love our neighbors as we love ourselves.
I intend to post sermons regularly. I'm also looking for experienced followers of Christ to serve on the Board of the Pastorate, Bishopric, or Elders (whichever you choose to call them), as long as they satisfy the qualifications in the Bible for them; and financially stable followers of Christ to serve as the Board of the Diaconate... provided that they, too, qualify by the Bible's standards. If you feel you're qualified, just send me some information by the "Contact Us" page, and I'll think about adding you to this family.
Thanks again for visiting, and may God richly bless you.
P.S.~ For information about how to become a Christian - to start a new life, - please visit the link entitled "Second Chance". It's a little long-winded, but I think it will be worth your while to read it... it certainly was worth mine to experience it!

We are overjoyed by the fact that so many people visit our site! Apparently, there are more people who feel the way we do, than we could imagine. The change is coming. It's not governmental. It's not martial. It's not corporate, or communist. It's personal, and it's spreading like wildfire! We give all the praise and glory to God Almighty, the Lord Jesus Christ, and the Holy Ghost for all of you, and thank you from the bottom of our hearts.
NOW... I don't want to sound like those preachers on T.V., but we do need donations and volunteers. This is an organization that is dedicated to the well-being of "our fellow man". Of course, we can't do all we'd like to do on a "shoe-string" budget. If you would like to donate anything at all, feel free to contact us, and we can arrange to help you donate. If we can't receive the donations, we'll make you part of our staff, and you can start your own branch of the organization wherever you are... as long as it doesn't deviate from the purpose of this ministry. While it is preferrable that we all do our part individually, sometimes a group is necessary to effect real change on a large scale... we strive to become that kind of organization.
ALSO... If you want to get involved in helping our organization, by being a volunteer, or in any other capacity, contact us. We love to hear from you; and, as with any organization, we need all the help we can get. You may not get wings, a halo, a robe or a harp, but you will be an angel of hope to someone, none-the-less!
FINALLY... Please leave comments, sign the guestbook, read and comment on the web-log ("blog") entries, and contact us on any matter. We love to hear from people; whether in need, willing to help, or just aching to criticize... we will especially welcome questions and interviews from the press. Just contact us, and we will make the arrangements.
In a debate between two passionate laypersons, Bill "the Science Guy" Nye (an engineer,) and Ken Ham (a creation science proponent and evangelist), there was no clear winner. Of course, there are sites like talkorigins.org that are dedicated to Nye's side of the argument, but where do you go for accurate information on Ham's proposed side? Creation.com is a site that is dedicated to accurate scientific information that supports the science behind creation.
