Who We Are:
Blessed Hope Baptist Church is an Independent Baptist Church that has been lifting up Jesus Christ since 1980. At Blessed Hope Baptist Church, we believe that God's Word provides the only solid foundation for life. We believe God has a purpose for every person. That is why we make no apology for preaching and teaching the Bible.
What To Expect:
A friendly greeting and a warm welcome. Should you be here for Sunday School, we have classes for all ages. We also provide nursery during the Sunday Morning, Evening, and Wednesday Evening Services. We also have JR Church during the AM Service (except for the 1st Sunday of the Month)
What The Services Are Like:
We at Blessed Hope believe that God is alive and well. We serve a risen Saviour, and He is in control no matter how chaotic the world may be.
While many have succumb to the world's philosophy and the worlds music standards, we worship the Lord in praise and thanksgiving for His grace and mercy. The Lord has blessed Blessed Hope with many talented singers and musicians that minister each service.
You will also enjoy Spirit-filled, dynamic, Bible preaching from the King James Bibles by our Pastor, Jonathan Wagahoff, each service.
