Salvation is a gift from God to man. The most important spiritual step a person can take is to turn from their sins and commit their life to Jesus Christ. It’s sometimes called being “saved” or “born again”. Man can never make up for his sin by self-improvement or good works. Only by trusting in Jesus Christ as God’s offer of forgiveness can man be saved from sin’s penalty. Eternal life begins the moment one receives Jesus Christ into his life by faith.
As a follower of Jesus, baptism is a public statement that your faith and commitment to Him is real. We are not called to live our lives alone, but to find a growing community to share life and experience with. Through baptism, we are asking our family of faith to walk with us in a way that brings Glory to God.
Baptism of Holy Spirit
Baptism of the Holy Spirit or Spirit baptism is distinguished from baptism with water.
Luke 3:3 ESV | he went into all the region around the Jordan, proclaiming a baptism of repentance for the forgiveness of sins.
Luke 3:16 ESV | John answered them all, saying, “I baptize you with water, but he who is mightier than I is coming, the strap of whose sandals I am not worthy to untie. He will baptize you with the Holy Spirit and fire.

“Then the LORD God said, “It is not good that the man should be alone; I will make him a helper fit for him.” Genesis 2:18
God designed marriage between a man and a woman. He made Adam and Eve as co-equals to labor together, encourage one another, and walk in community together for their entire lives. God designed us for each other, but our partnership with Him should be the center of all our relationships. God doesn’t want a husband and wife to be identical to each other, but to complement one another in their gifting and skillset. The Marriage Mentoring Ministry of HopeCity will allow couples, engaged or married, to encounter the healing and equipping that comes when they allow God to lead their relationship.
