Hope Street CMC - Mission & Vision

Vision & Mission Statement

Realized Potential through Breaking Cycles of Poverty.

Hope Street addresses poverty by supplying resources towards basic human needs of the homeless, working poor and disadvantaged population of Medicine Hat

Statement of Beliefs

   We believe that God, who is holy love and light, is Triune in essential being; revealed as Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.
   We believe the Bible communicates God’s saving message and is our reliable authority in all matters related to faith and Christian living.
   We believe all humankind struggles with a downward pull.
   We believe that unless we experience God’s help and salvation through a faith commitment to Jesus Christ, our future is one of eternal separation from God and all that is good.
   We believe the love and grace of God is extended to every person in the provision Jesus Christ made through His death and resurrection. By turning from our own selfishness and trusting Jesus Christ, we experience a new life, free from the old patterns of self-destructive acts called sin.
   We believe our new life in Jesus Christ is the gateway to transformation which, is an ongoing process of change and growth.
   We believe all who live for Jesus Christ have an eternal future. Our belief in such a future includes both the fulfillment of God’s creative purpose as well as the accountability of all persons endowed with the power of choice.      

Values

   We are a faith-based and faith-operated organization.
   We believe that all of Hope Street CMC operations should be Family-Safe for all of our guests.
   We believe in the leading, anointing and provision of God, which supersedes the best efforts, talents and knowledge of human beings.
   We treat the less fortunate as objects of God’s love, mercy and grace who deserve to be treated with dignity and respect.
   We believe people should perform compassionate acts without ulterior motives; compassion is a legitimate and biblical expression of God’s care and love for hungry, homeless and hurting people.
   We believe Christ’s death and resurrection are mankind’s only eternal hope.
   We believe the love and forgiveness of God is adequate and available for all.
   We believe the relevance of the Bible and that it transcends time and culture.
   We believe the universal Church is Christ’s representative in word and deed.
   We believe in networking with compassionate people of all denominations and faiths.
   We believe our volunteers are vital to accomplish our mandates.
   We believe in the equality of all human beings.
   We believe that contributions of other Medicine Hat agencies and ministries, both Christian and non-Christian, will help us alleviate the hardships of homelessness and poverty.
