what we believe

Rising Hope Canton is comprised of individuals who believe in and profess the following:

We believe that there is one God, eternally existent in three persons: the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit (Ephesians 4: 4-6; 1 Timothy 2:5).

We believe in Jesus Christ, the true Son of God. He is love in human form (John 3:16). He left his place in heaven to live here on earth. He purchased our ransom and redeemed us from sin (1 Corinthians 6:20). He was born a man through virgin birth. While he was alive, he was both human and divine. We accept Jesus as our Lord and Savior. Because of this our future is secure. "I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me (John 14:6).

We believe that the Bible is the inspired, infallible and uniquely authoritative written Word of God, and guide in faith and life (2 Timothy 3:16).

We believe in the supreme law of Christ, which is to love one another as He loved us. The way to show love to one another is to carry each other's burdens (Galatians 6:2).

We believe in God the Father Almighty, Creator of all things (Genesis 1:1)."'I am the Alpha and the Omega,' says the Lord God, 'who is and who was and who is to come, the Almighty.'" (Revelations 1:8). He is all powerful and all knowing. He knows each of us intimately and has always known us (Psalm 139:1).

We believe in the Holy Spirit. It lives in us. It is our bridge to God. The Holy Spirit leads us and guides us. It speaks to us and reminds us that we are children of God and that because of that, we are special and deeply loved.

We believe that true faith in God requires more than just words; it requires action (James 2:14-17).

Organizational goals

From the start Rising Hope Canton was called to be a ministry that is dedicated to restoring the spiritual health, strength and well-being to the

commUNITY and its people.

Our mission is to serve as a catalyst for positive change in our city by igniting hope in others

and encouraging them to be Christ followers.

We intend to accomplish these goals by living intentionally in the spaces where we believe God sends us and to serve as lights of hope to those around us.

"Rising Hope Canton is a family that supports each other through struggle and

joy, trials and
celebration, suffering and blessing, all while pointing you toward our Savior Jesus Christ."
