What We Believe




We are so glad you've found Hope Church! We want you to be a part of this new and exciting community in Bloomington-Normal. With a focus on understanding God's will for our lives, we hope to enrich our individual faith and to share the love of God with those seeking a more meaningful life.

What We Believe


We exist for a new generation to learn to live Christ-centered lives. We believe that absolutely everyone is loved by God. We are an open faith community and all are welcome. We encourage theological thought and discussion. As we approach the Christian faith, we will do so with our heart, soul, mind, and strength.





We are a United Methodist faith community (however, you are not required to become United Methodist to participate with Hope Church).


You will experience a theology and structure influenced by the founder of the Methodist movement, John Wesley. His theology revolved around grace, the belief that God offers everyone unconditional love.

Worship services will last about an hour. You will experience a message that explores why Jesus said and did the things he did, and how it is relevant to our lives today. There will be quality, uplifting music, and a great community of friendly, caring people.


It is our prayer that everyone feels welcome, that our message is relevant to your life, prompting deeper conversation and growth. Regardless of what you believe or don't believe, you are welcome to be a part of our worship gatherings.
