Witness a church that has been revived, that goes with the flow of God's agenda and not the agenda of men, allowing His presence to take control, witness young and old growing in the word of God as their lives and families are changed, witness a church that steps outside of the comfort zone of the four walls to reach those in need, witness communities transformed by the power of Jesus Christ.
The Hope Movement is planting home churches or assisting established traditional churches to return to their roots following the unique design by God. Developing churches with a house church feel, time of edification and reflection giving people a moment to share from their heart and pray with one another, intimate worship that doesn’t follow the typical worship pattern but is rather guided by the presence of God and Biblical teaching to develop unashamed Holy Spirit led disciples who will go into all of the world and preach the gospel and help those in need.
The Hope Movement produces materials and teaches using a systematic theology approach. “Systematic” refers to something being put into a system. Systematic theology is, therefore, the division of theology into systems that explain its various areas. For example, many books of the Bible give information about the angels. No one book gives all the information about the angels. Systematic theology takes all the information about angels from all the books of the Bible and organizes it into a system called angelology. That is what systematic theology is all about—organizing the teachings of the Bible into categorical systems.
Theology Proper or Paterology is the study of God the Father. Christology is the study of God the Son, the Lord Jesus Christ. Pneumatology is the study of God the Holy Spirit. Bibliology is the study of the Bible. Soteriology is the study of salvation. Ecclesiology is the study of the church. Eschatology is the study of the end times. Angelology is the study of angels. Christian Demonology is the study of demons from a Christian perspective. Christian Anthropology is the study of humanity. Hamartiology is the study of sin. Systematic theology is an important tool in helping us to understand and teach the Bible in an organized manner.
The Hope Movement teaches pastors, church elders, teachers and all Christians how to preach the Gospel by breaking down the Bible teaching the profound truths that can be found by analyzing each verse rather simply teaching a topical message. At times topical messages are necessary in order to discuss certain church issues and to help in discipling the body of Christ. Topical messages should be rare and we should preach and teach verse by verse to help avoid misinterpretations, reveal hidden truths and gain a greater knowledge of God and his plan for humanity. In teaching the Bible verse by verse we find the answers to all of our questions, expose sin and draw us to a closer relationship with God as 2 Timothy 3:16-17 states all Scripture is breathed out by God and profitable for teaching, for reproof, for correction, and for training in righteousness, 17 that the man of God may be complete, equipped for every good work.
