Here at Hopeville Family Ministries, we commit ourselves to help you every step of the way to achieve your desired life. We aspire to nurture a culture of positive change to our community by transforming one individual at a time. We have Sunday morning service for our spiritual nourishment. We also offer counseling and recovery treatments for former addicts who want to change. We likewise conduct various skills and neighborhood community entrepreneurial training to those who want to improve their finances. Our congregation also offers a food pantry where families and individuals can obtain food and other essentials.
It is both a comforting and uplifting feeling to know that we are holding onto God, the supreme of all being and the beginning of everything. All problems and adversities become smaller if we are holding on to someone as great as He is.
We want you to be part of our growing family. Let us encourage each other and be transformed together. Let us build a community of change, starting with ourselves.
Hopeville Family Ministries is created to inspire every individual to get to know God and live by his standards. We want everyone to know that God is present in our lives and how that knowledge can benefit us to achieve our goals and objectives in life.
As human beings, we all have our own shortcomings. We are made of flesh and thus are bound to commit mistakes. But our God is always faithful. He has endless mercy. He has boundless love. He knows each of our trespasses but He still loves us purely and completely. Sometimes, we may feel being burdened by our wrongdoings. We may feel isolated and lost after life’s adversities. Sometimes, we think that everything is bleak, dark and hopeless. But there is no adversity greater than our omnipotent God. He never abandons us. We may be made of flesh and commit sin but we are also made upon His image and so we are bound to follow His greatness and rise beyond our human imperfections.
WHAT WE BELIEVE
“As for the days of our life, they contain seventy years or if due to strength, eighty years.” (Psalms 90:10)
We believe the 53rd Chapter of Isaiah holds the key to our redemption, spiritual and physical. Isaiah 53:6 says, “…the Lord hath laid on Him the iniquity of us all.” This verse provides for our salvation. In Isaiah 53:4 it says, in the Hebrew, “Surely He hath borne our sicknesses, and carried our pains.” This verse provides for healing. Matthew takes this verse from the Old Testament to the new in Matthew 8:17 when he says, “That it might be fulfilled which was spoken by Isaiah the prophet, saying, Himself took our infirmities, and bare our sicknesses.” If we can believe that God laid our iniquities on Jesus, and because He laid our iniquities on Him there is salvation for us, then we can also believe what Isaiah tells us that He also laid our sicknesses and disease on Jesus and because of that healing is for us also.
We believe the Word is the seed, that when planted will produce an abundant harvest. We must first understand God’s Word for the provision of healing before we can possess its manifestation. We therefore share God’s Word on healing, before we pray, to produce prevailing faith in the hearer that becomes the substance of things hoped for and is evidenced in the manifestation of healing.
We believe there is a filling of the Holy Spirit that is available to every Christian. The Holy Spirit has an anointing that produces power and can be received and increased through a yielded life.
We believe in the nine gifts of the Spirit and the importance of the fruit of the Spirit, which empowers the gifts.
Each prayer servant in this ministry must be called by God, yielded to His Holy Spirit, seek an increase in anointing, be open to operate in any gift of the Spirit that is necessary to minister life to the infirmed, draw daily from the Word and in prayer; and continually give God the Glory for what He has done.
Each prayer servant must not only minister to the sick, but should be helping to equip others in the body to do the same.
This ministry and its servants serve the body of Christ and are submitted to its leadership. We look for this leadership to give us spiritual support, to come alongside and in our unity provide the strength and power to see the sick set free.
