"Statement of Faith: We believe in the verbal inspiration of the Bible, both the Old and New Testaments; the Trinity of the Godhead; the creation of man by the direct act of God; the fall of man and his need for Redemption; the Deity, Incarnation and Virgin Birth of our Lord and Savior JESUS CHRIST; His Vicarious Atonement for the sins of man-kind by the shedding of HIS Blood on the cross; the resurrection of His body for the tomb; His ascension into Heaven; His personal, imminent return; the Deity of the HOLY SPIRIT; justification of the believer by grace through faith; a literal Devil who is our adversary; a literal Heaven for the redeemed and a literal Hell for the lost; the infallible rule of interpretation of Scripture to be Scripture itself; and the requirement of implicit obedience to the expressed commands of Christ as the standard by which He will judge our love to HIM. We have without mental reservation of any kind sincerely receive and adopted the above statement of Faith as being the fundamental doctrine taught in the Holy Scriptures.

I was a member of Hopewell for 11 years and fell on hard times. I called the church asking for help and without questioning my member status I was immediately brushed off and were told to contact the Norcross Ministry Cooperative Center. I was hurt because I put a lot of money into Hopewell; paying my offering and tithes regularly. Then when I contacted someone in the church personally she gave me their benevolence hotline and I left a message. They responded 3 weeks later and asked if I participated in any ministries, I didn’t think that should make a difference. They could look me up and see if I was a member and look at my offering and tithes statement. “Papa” is a great pastor, I love the atmosphere of Hopewell but just a little disappointed that if you are not involved in any ministries they really could care less. Now that I’m back on my feet I’m looking for a church home. Something smaller where I can serve and live out my purpose for God. So long Hopewell, no more mega churches for me.
