The Greatest Commandment

“Teacher, what is the greatest commandment in the Law?”
He replied, “You must love the Lord your God with all your heart, with all your being, and with all your mind.  This is the first and greatest commandment. And the second is like it: You must love your neighbor as you love yourself.” (Matthew 22:36-39, CEB)  
These two commands form the core of Hopewell’s history, mission, and vision.  We trust the guidance of the Holy Spirit to lead us into opportunities where we can more fully experience God’s presence in our lives and world.  We marvel at the ways in which God moves among us and the evidence of God’s grace and love.  We seek to share this love through ministry in our local community and beyond, providing sustenance for both the body and the spirit.  We value spiritual discipleship, and seek to grow closer to God through study, worship, and community.
