More than 25 years ago, Pastor Pat James recognized that there always seemed to be folks who found it difficult to “fit in” within the structure of the mainline church. Not everyone fits into what has become the “Christian Image” in the Western world, and, most likely, it is strictly a cultural thing anyway, as the Christians in other parts of the world are not even familiar with it. Many of the “trappings” of Western Christianity are not part of the Bible, and have been established by tradition. Many are good. Some are simply a matter of taste. Some have been “not so good.”
True Hope Christian Fellowship was established to try and step outside the “Christian Norm” of our culture, and remember that when Jesus was reaching out to the world it wasn’t the “socially elite” who came to him, but the “rest”. In fact, he was resisted most strongly by the ones the world saw as “elite”…the Pharisees.
We would like to continue the outreach of Christ, calling sinners to repentance, and calling the humble to be lifted up by God. God calls to the Proud to “humble thyself under the mighty hand of God, that He may exalt you in due time.”
Jesus said, “Come unto Me all ye that labor and are heavy-laden, and I will give you rest.” We would like to continue to extend that invitation: “whosoever will…” may come.
