Luke 19:10

Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all that I have commanded you.

Matthew 28:19&20

"Behold, the dwelling place of God is with man.  He will dwell with them, and they will be his people, and God himself will be with them as their God. He will wipe away every tear from their eyes, and death shall be no more, neither shall there be mourning, nor crying, nor pain anymore, for the former things have passed away."

Revelation 21:3&4

Biblical Beliefs

We are members of the Evangelical Presbyterian Church (EPC). 


As members of the EPC, Hope Church is committed to

upholding the integrity of Scripture and expressing the love of God to all people.

The EPC motto is:

In Essentials, Unity

In Non-Essentials, Liberty

In All Things, Charity

Hope Church holds to the following essential Biblical Christian beliefs:

  • All Scripture is self-attesting and being Truth, requires our unreserved submission in all areas of life. 
  • The infallible Word of God, the sixty-six books of the Old and New Testaments, is a complete and unified witness to God's redemptive acts culminating in the incarnation of the Living Word, the Lord Jesus Christ. 
  • The Bible, uniquely and fully inspired by the Holy Spirit, is the supreme and final authority on all matters on which it speaks. 

More on our Doctrinal Beliefs

Hope Church San Antonio also affirms the traditional Reformed theology represented in the Westminster Confession of Faith (including the Larger and Shorter Catechism) which we uphold as a doctrinal standard for our pastor, elders, and deacons.
