ABOUT US


Greater Hope Ministries is a Non-Denominational Church established by Caroline Allen - Jones, Senior Pastor, in January 2009.  At its conception, Greater Hope Ministries started with approximately 25 members that were a small portion of sons and daughters that just undergone a major transition.  However, much prayer Pastor Caroline Allen-Jones obeyed the will of the Lord to move forward and become the Pastor of this ministry that was birthed through many trials and tribulations.

Despite challenges big and small in the beginning, Greater Hope Ministries has grown in numbers substantially, in both the Spirit and Natural Realm. 

We are a Bible Believing church that teaches and preaches the WORD OF GOD.  We are also people who believe that " Praise" comely for the upright. Serving Greater Hope Ministries begin serving in the community from the very beginning by assisting the homeless at the homeless shelter Harbor of Hope cooking and serving meals to those who were residents.

Greater Hope Ministries donated funds to local organizations to help provide medication for those that were unable to meet their medical needs. We as a church believe in leading and guiding the youth, especially during the Summer months when the youth are out of school and it is possible for our youth to be led astray due to lack of activities. 

Greater Hope Ministries decided to sponsor a camp by the name of "Camp Hope" for our local children in housing developments.  During the camp haircuts, hair braiding, school supplies, and clothing were provided for the students going back to school.  Greater Hope Ministries also believe in helping other churches in the Body of Christ so we provided funds to assist a church in Africa to build a roof, where 72 souls were saved at their first service.  
 

Greater Hope Ministries has purchased the former Westlane Bowling Alley and the adjacent lot will become our new sanctuary after renovations are completed.  We will offer a variety of ministries, catering to all stages and ages of life.  

Jeremiah 29:11 For I know the plans that I have for you declares the Lord, plans to prosper you and not harm you. Plans to give you HOPE and a future.

  • THE PURPOSE OF GOD

    We affirm our belief in the one-eternal God, Creator and Lord of the world, Father, Son and Holy Spirit, who governs all things according to the purpose of his will. He has been calling out from the world a people for himself, and sending his people back into the world to be his servants and his witnesses, for the extension of his kingdom, the building up of Christ's body, and the glory of his name. We confess with shame that we have often denied our calling and failed in our mission, by becoming conformed to the world or by withdrawing from it. Yet we rejoice that even when borne by earthen vessels the gospel is still a precious treasure. To the task of making that treasure known in the power of the Holy Spirit we desire to dedicate ourselves anew.

  • THE AUTHORITY AND POWER OF THE BIBLE

    We affirm the divine inspiration, truthfulness and authority of both Old and New Testament Scriptures in their entirety as the only written word of God, without error in all that it affirms, and the only infallible rule of faith and practice. We also affirm the power of God's word to accomplish his purpose of salvation. The message of the Bible is addressed to all men and women. For God's revelation in Christ and in Scripture is unchangeable. Through it the Holy Spirit still speaks today. He illumines the minds of God's people in every culture to perceive its truth freshly through their own eyes and thus discloses to the whole Church ever more of the many-colored wisdom of God.

  • THE UNIQUENESS AND UNIVERSALITY OF CHRIST

    We affirm that there is only one Saviour and only one gospel, although there is a wide diversity of evangelistic approaches. We recognise that everyone has some knowledge of God through his general revelation in nature. But we deny that this can save, for people suppress the truth by their unrighteousness. We also reject as derogatory to Christ and the gospel every kind of syncretism and dialogue which implies that Christ speaks equally through all religions and ideologies. Jesus Christ, being himself the only God-man, who gave himself as the only ransom for sinners, is the only mediator between God and people. There is no other name by which we must be saved. All men and women are perishing because of sin, but God loves everyone, not wishing that any should perish but that all should repent. Yet those who reject Christ repudiate the joy of salvation and condemn themselves to eternal separation from God. To proclaim Jesus as "the Saviour of the world" is not to affirm that all people are either automatically or ultimately saved, still less to affirm that all religions offer salvation in Christ. Rather it is to proclaim God's love for a world of sinners and to invite everyone to respond to him as Saviour and Lord in the wholehearted personal commitment of repentance and faith. Jesus Christ has been exalted above every other name; we long for the day when every knee shall bow to him and every tongue shall confess him Lord.
