God values truth! That statement should need little defense. Jesus, in His High Priestly prayer to the Father, petitioned the Father to “sanctify them in the truth. Your word is truth.” (John 17:17) The Lord understood the absolute necessity of truth and requested the Father to use truth to set apart His disciples for the purpose of bringing Him glory. Christian leaders are commanded by God to “speak the things which are fitting for sound doctrine” (Titus 2:1). The careful attention to biblical detail in this doctrinal statement is presented to our local church with joy and great anticipation. John wrote, “I have no greater joy than this, to hear of my children walking in the truth.” (3 John 1:4) This summary statement of faith is created to be the guide of what we teach at Hope Bible Church. It represents the consensus of opinion and conviction of the elders of the church concerning what the Scriptures teach. It is provided for the general instruction, unity, and guidance of our people concerning those articles of faith taught in the Scriptures.
