Love God • Love Others • Share Hope
Hope Church is a thriving and growing congregation committed to following Jesus Christ and transforming the community of central Ohio. We gather together every Sunday morning at 10:00 AM at 75 E. Schrock Rd., just off of I-270 in Westerville, for heartfelt worship and engaging, Christ-centered preaching. The message that you’re going to hear often at Hope is this: Love God, Love Others, Share Hope. That’s the shorthand way of communicating what we’re all about. Life, and even faith, can become unnecessarily complex, so we want to keep it simple by focusing on loving God (the Greatest Commandment), loving others (the Second Greatest Commandment), and sharing hope (the Great Commission).
There’s no pretense at Hope Church. You come as you are and we come as we are. We’re not here to put on a show or provide entertainment. We gather together to worship the living God who loves us, who wants to speak to us, and who wants to be glorified through us. If you’ve never experienced the love and grace of God, or if it’s been a long time since you have, then Hope Church is the place for you. If you feel unworthy, unwanted, or unloved, then Hope Church is the place for you. If you feel like you don’t belong anywhere, then you belong here. Come join us. We’ve been waiting for you.
Hope Church is the result of two churches joining together to advance God’s kingdom in Westerville and throughout central Ohio. In July, 2015, Westerville Alliance Church voted to come together with a new church plant in the Columbus area, forming one new church out of the two congregations. The new church combines the best of both entities – the people, history, and location of Westerville Alliance with the visionary leadership and excitement of the church plant. Be sure to browse through the website to learn more about Hope, including what we believe and meeting our leadership team.
Hope Church is a part of the Christian & Missionary Alliance denomination. The C&MA has a long history of proclaiming the gospel of Jesus Christ to unreached people groups throughout the world. You can learn more about the Christian & Missionary Alliance on their website.
