Mission Statement


Mission/Purpose Statement The purpose of Hope Ministries is to proclaim and demonstrate the life-changing Gospel of Jesus Christ, meeting the spiritual, physical, and emotional needs of men, women and children who are homeless or in need of hope. Vision Hope Ministries has been given an exciting vision: to bring lasting hope to the homeless and hurting of central Iowa. With the strengths of both Bethel Mission and The Door of Faith men?s recovery center, Hope Ministries provides a comprehensive program to help homeless men rebuild their lives. In addition, through our year-round meal programs, we provide healthy, nutritious meals to thousands of men women and children. But we don?t believe that's enough. In Iowa, statewide studies show that more and more homeless women and families are seeking help. We are addressing that need through our new Hope Family Center for homeless women and their children-- because we believe Jesus calls us to open our arms wider as the need grows.

Organizational Statement of Faith


Core Values 1. We honor God by trusting and obeying Him. We seek to serve Jesus Christ and discern what God's will is for us - individually and as an organization. We strive for excellence, seeking to "run the race" with our best efforts and with our eyes focused squarely on Christ. We strive for integrity, seeking to be transparent in motive, action and conduct so that Jesus Christ can be seen clearly through us. 2. We are stewards of God's resources. We manage carefully every resource God brings to us, knowing that each gift is provided by God's hand through the efforts of others. We proactively prepare for the future, knowing that stability is essential to the consistent rendering of God's work. We demand of ourselves high standards of competence and performance and accept the need to be accountable through appropriate structures for achieving these standards. 3. We value people. We are called to serve those in need, to relieve their suffering and to promote the transformation of their condition of life. We value donors and volunteers highly, providing for them a conduit through which they can serve God and their fellow man. We seek to provide quality opportunities and experiences to our employees, providing them with opportunities for personal, spiritual and professional growth. Statement of Faith We believe that there is one God, eternally existing in three persons: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. We believe in the deity of Jesus Christ, in His virgin birth, in His sinless life, in His miracles, in His vicarious and atoning death through His shed blood, in His bodily resurrection, in His ascension to the right hand of the Father and in His future return in power and glory. We believe that the Holy Spirit personally indwells all believers, bearing witness to their relationship with God; and imparts spiritual enlightenment, conviction of sin, and divine power for witnessing and service. We believe the Bible, as contained in the Old and New Testaments, is the inspired written Word of God. As such it is infallible and authoritative in all moral and spiritual teaching. We believe in the bodily resurrection of the saved to eternal blessedness and joy, and of the lost to judgment and eternal conscious punishment. Our desire is that all people will place their trust in Jesus Christ. We believe it is essential for all people to believe in Jesus as their Savior and receive Him as their Lord by the regeneration of the Holy Spirit. We believe that God alone holds the power to set us free from the bondage of sin, addictions, and compulsions that destroy the quality of life that God intends for us to live. We believe in the spiritual unity of believers in Christ and that we should speak with a united voice for the welfare of the community.
