We desire to seek Jesus Christ first in our lives. Through the Holy Spirit, we also desire to regularly point and restore one another to Him while we seek the flourishing of the city where God has called us to dwell and pray to the Lord on its behalf. (Jeremiah 29:7) Out of the hope laid up for us in heaven, we desire to love our neighbor so that the gospel might bear fruit and increase in Asheville. (Colossians 1:5-6) Because God is bringing brothers and sisters in Christ from all sides of Asheville to Hope Community, we want to worship centrally in our city and go out from there to walk and abide with the unchurched. This is spelled out more below.
