Are there times when you're feeling low
And one more step is too far to go?
Does anyone care what you think or feel?
Life at times, seems too unreal
Then, someone sends a cheery smile,
Speaks kind words
Makes life worthwhile.
Remember then, you too can be
A shining light for us to see
You're a unique creation
Whom we should know
Share yourself; help us grow!
For in life's busy, hectic pace
You always have a special place
For they shall be known as the Children of God.
But I say to you that hear, love your enemies, do good to those who hate you, bless those who curse you pray for those who abuse you. To those that strike you on the cheek, offer the other one also, and from those who take away your cloak, do not withhold your coat as well.
Give to everyone who begs from you, and of those who take away your goods, do not ask for them again. And as you wish that others would do to you, do so to them
1 Corinthians 13:2-3 "I may have the gift of prophecy. I may
understand all the secret things of God and have all knowledge,
and I may have faith so great I can move mountains. But even with
all these things, if I do not have love, then I am nothing. I may give
away everything I have, and I may even give my body as an offering to be
burned. But I gain nothing if I do not have love.

The Presidents, Vice Presidents and Executives at Hope are born again believers. We confess Jesus Christ as our Savior and propagate the following doctrines as His witnesses.
1. The Trinity.
2. The full deity and humanity of Christ.
3. The spiritual lostness of the human race.
4. The substitutionary atonement and bodily resurrection of Christ.
5. Salvation by faith alone - in Jesus Christ alone.
6. The physical return of Christ.
7. The authority and inerrancy of Scripture.
We try to live our lives in a way that honors and pleases God. As a group we try to welcome each member as part of our family, we try to visit their site, and sign their guestbook; We are strangers who become friends at HOPE and then we become family.
You do NOT have to have a web site to join HOPE. However, if you do have a web site we ask that our members site-content not contain any racial, hatred, or pornography.
We ask members with sites to include our banner on their site and link to the home of HOPE.
If any member has any problems in regard to the content of HOPE, we ask that it be discussed with the Presidents. You must be over 13 years old to join (because by law we are not allowed to ask anyone 13 years old or under to answer personal questions).
Please keep in mind that we are a diverse group with members hailing from all parts of the world, and there may be certain social differences!
At HOPE we are more than just members, we ARE family and we will pray for you, encourage you, listen to your problems - And give advise only when you ask for it!
*In any group or family, conflicts do arise, we at HOPE do NOT allow any member to email or post on our message board anything mean or hateful to another member. If you have a problem with another member, pray for that member and forgive him/her. But do NOT respond! No member has the right to correct another member's posting or email - Only the
grievance committee has that right.
Therefore, if it's a problem that you feel needs the attention of our grievance committee please feel free to send one of them an email. They will always pray about the situation and work toward a reconciliation between the two of you.
Again... At no time will any member be permitted to email or post anything hateful, mean spirited, or even anything under the guise of "constructive criticism" to another member! It will mean an automatic dismissal from this group.
IF YOU HAVE A SITE,
we asked that
it be free from things like devil worship, sorcery, witchcraft (of any
sort), racial prejudice, nudity (of any kind) and free from hate.
are a group willing to serve you, pray for you, work with you, encourage
you, cry with you, laugh with you, accept you without prejudice and love
you, and all we ask in return is a small contribution...
your loyality and
faithfulness to log in at least once every two weeks and post a
message about how you are doing. We also require all members to serve on our
Welcome Committee. Your contribution to this committee will be to send or
post a welcome to each new member when they join. .
We fully understand there is a life outside the web - LOL - and we never
want to ever be the cause of problems inside a family because we require you
to do too much. Our motto is this: God first, Family second, Friends third,
Country fourth, and we are most happy to be the last on your list of
