HopeSide Community Church
was launched in mid-2011 to pilot a unique outreach model. This is primarily an outreach mission. The first meeting was held on Sept. 3, 2011.
1. The HopeSide Community Church exists to be a sanctuary or a place of refuge for anyone to be accepted and nurtured to wholeness in Jesus. Volunteer opportunities are given to all who may wish to serve in various capacities.
Share your passion for Christ through any
ability you may have at least once. Your
passion may bring someone to Christ, or,
we can share our passion so that you can be
equipped and inspired to share Jesus.
2. Beliefs and theological positions on matters of Christian doctrine is
Seventh-day Adventist. However, anyone with any background can freely and actively fellowship and worship at HopeSide. The Bible is held as the only standard by which all
things are measured.
3. HopeSide Church is a part of the sisterhood of the
Seventh-day Adventist Churches as a Mission
Group in the
Allegheny East Conference.
As a result of our unconventional
outreach efforts, many have been helped and
many from diverse
backgrounds worship and serve regularly in
our mission group.
Our Passion Statement:
pasture at HopeSide
according to the calling and gifting of
God for mission completion. Ref:
1 Cor. 12
with praising God in one accord
2 Chron. 5:13-14.
11 [In this new creation all distinctions vanish.]
There is no room for and there can be neither Greek
nor Jew, circumcised nor uncircumcised, [nor
difference between nations whether alien] barbarians
[who are the most savage of all], nor
slave or free man; but Christ is all and in all
[everything and everywhere, to all men, without
distinction of person].
28 There is neither Jew nor Greek, there is neither
bond nor free, there is neither male nor female: for
ye are all one in Christ Jesus.
ye shall be unto me a kingdom of priests,
and an holy nation. These are the words which thou
shalt speak unto the children of Israel.
1 Peter 2:9
9 But ye are a chosen generation,
priesthood, an holy nation, a peculiar people; that
ye should show forth the praises of him who hath
called you out of darkness into his marvelous light.
Each person is called the the "church" or the body of Christ. Each person is
called to be the
priest of that church or body
first and foremost. The church is really not a building, its services or a denomination or a congregation or a "Church Corporation" though these entities exist for the purpose of administration. Jesus did not die to save a building or a church congregation but each person. In fact, God made sure that the two temples of the Old Testament were fully destroyed to clarify the purpose of those two temples. The whole point of the Sanctuary and its services were to change the heart from the inside. Too often we give more sanctity or importance to church buildings and services and corporate structures than to ourselves
and each other. We are made in His image and each person is a special image of God though we have fallen and
come short of His glory. The weekly service or gathering is an extension of the church or ourselves in order to edify and help one another according to the gifting and calling of God
without respect to race or gender. Therefore, once we realize who we are and whose we are, we can truly respect and love each other and everything can be restored.
Then, all confusion about what "church" can disappear and we can become one in
spirit and truth.
1 Cor. 3:16-17
16 Know ye not that ye are the temple of God, and that the Spirit of God dwelleth in you?
17 If any man defile the temple of God, him shall God destroy; for the temple of God is holy, which temple ye are.
Gospel: The Gospel according to the Bible is the good news of salvation for all mankind freely offered through Jesus Christ. We are therefore called to be that Gospel or good news individually to all we come across.
