Welcome to Hope Chapel Ministries!
0n March 25, 1973, Dr. Jeannette C. Holmes repented and accepted Christ as her personal Lord and Savior, and subsequently received the baptism of the Holy Spirit. It was evident that the call of God was upon her life as she shared the love of Christ and her anointed testimony. As she continued to share fervently this Good News of the Gospel, many like her were won over to the same faith in our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. Hope Chapel Ministries was born. The ministry, which was initially referred to as Unity, Prayer, Bible and Mission Outreach, started in the basement of her home and continued there for approximately 5 years before moving into the garage. As the ministry continued to show tremendous growth, it was necessary to use various community centers for specific events. Our first construction was completed in 1981 was the Fellowship Hall. Today the ministry has expanded to multi-million dollar facilities that include a Children's Church, Sanctuary, renovated Fellowship Hall and a private Christian School.
The ministry, which started out with seven (7) members, experienced remarkably rapid growth. It embraced people of various races, nationalities and walks-of-life. As the ministry continued to grow through the preaching of the Gospel, prison ministry, nursing home visits, street evangelism, and other forms of outreach were established and many lives experienced the love of Jesus, the truth of the gospel and the new birth, bringing about notable changes. Moreover, Hope Chapel’s radio, television, magazine and internet ministries are other examples of viable channels reaching out to millions of people offering hope through salvation and a new life. As it has been the case over many years, and doubtless will continue to be, countless individuals come through the doors of Hope Chapel broken, disheartened, without salvation and without hope, and afterwards go on to live changed lives. Hope Chapel will continue to be a place of salvation, deliverance and hope as we move into the future exclaiming our motto: "There is Hope at Hope Chapel...and that Hope is Jesus!".
