Hope Church has grown from 200 members to over 2,100 members in just a few short years, and has had to add additional worship experiences in order to accommodate the growth. Hope Church and Pastor Greg are passionate about meeting the
needs of the surrounding community and providing experiences and ministries that impact every area of life. Refusing to focus on tradition and religion, Pastor Greg‘s passion is to communicate the unchanging Truth in innovative & creative ways to see lives changed.
Many Christians are bound by the rules of religion that was created by man instead of enjoying the freedom and fulfillment that comes from a real relationship with a real God. ~ Pastor Greg.
While the commitment to the local community is strong, Hope Church‘s international commitment is also increasing with new Bible schools and churches being started and growing every day in the Philippines.
