About Us
Mission Statement

We reach up by building an inclusive, Christ-centered, Bible-based church; We reach out by serving the poor, caring for the sick, and uplifting the oppressed and broken;

We are a Beacon of Hope by being a loving community of believers, bringing Christ's example to life, as we are led by the Holy Spirit to use our blessings and talents, and by empowering people to be servant leaders.

Hope offers both traditional worship services (on Sunday morning) and a blended contemporary & traditional worship service (on Thursday evening). We are a loving fellowship of people committed to Jesus Christ and to one another. Our various ministries and resources are designed to help chisel God’s truth on each person’s heart so that our lives may better reflect His glory.

Our church is a congregation of the Presbytery of TampaBay, the Synod of South Atlantic, and the Presbyterian Church, U.S.A. In fact, the Executive Presbyter (Coach/Coordinator) for the Presbytery of Tampa Bay is our own Ruling Elder Patrice Hatley.
