Mission Statement


Hope for Augusta is an inter-denominational community development organization committed to serving the needs of our city with Christ-centered resources.  The ministry is committed to partnering with local churches, institutions, and individuals who share the same vision and commitment to our city.

Description


Hope for Augusta began 5 years ago when a few pioneers from First Presbyterian church bought old homes and moved into the inner city of Augusta Ga. Their focus was two-fold: to restore people and rebuild places. They longed to see the community redeemed from within. They sought to be Christ Centered, Gospel driven and Spirit filled as they lived in the community. As they developed relationships within the neighborhood they began to understand the challenges and assets of the community. What started as a community dinner morphed into a community Bible study for urban kids. The kids Bible study has become a funnel to get to know parents and to offer deeper assistance in tutoring, mentoring and discipleship. Thursdays from 6:00-8:00: New Town, a Bible study for neighborhood kids Monday and Wednesdays 4:00-6:00: Reaching Higher, an after-school tutoring program

Organizational Statement of Faith


I believe in God, the Father Almighty, the Maker of heaven and earth, and in Jesus Christ, His only Son, our Lord: Who was conceived by the Holy Ghost, born of the virgin Mary, suffered under Pontius Pilate, was crucified, dead, and buried; He descended into hell. The third day He arose again from the dead; He ascended into heaven, and sitteth on the right hand of God the Father Almighty; from thence he shall come to judge the quick and the dead. I believe in the Holy Ghost; the holy catholic church; the communion of saints; the forgiveness of sins; the resurrection of the body; and the life everlasting. Amen.
