Statement of Faith

Hope of the Ozarks is an interdenominational, non-profit ministry.

We Believe in:

  • The Holy Scriptures as originally given by God, divinely inspired, infallible, trustworthy and the supreme authority in all matters of faith and conduct;
  • The Triune God – Father, Son, and Holy Spirit; God the Father, creator of heaven and earth, who made man in His image and in His likeness;
  • The deity of the Lord Jesus Christ (Jesus is God), His substitutionary atonement for sin, His resurrection and His personal, visible return to earth to reign in righteousness;
  • The Person of the Holy Spirit and His work of conviction and regeneration, who indwells every believer equipping them with gifts for service and witnessing;
  • The necessity of new birth, salvation by faith in Jesus Christ alone, and the importance of a life fully committed to the will of God in Christ;
  • The Church, both universal and local, which is the body of Christ; Christ being its Head and; The Church’s commission to evangelize the world by proclaiming Jesus Christ as Lord and by living as His servants among men.
