Hopedale Baptist Church exists to:

Glorify God: Through our worship each week and the lives we live each day.

Grow Believers: To become disciples and followers of our Savior Jesus Christ through bible study, personal growth, Christian fellowship, and the preaching of God’s Word.

Give Hope: As we take the message of the Gospel to our families, neighbors, co-workers, community, state, nation, and the world.  We give care and help to those in need.


There are 3 ways to join Hopedale Baptist Church

1. Baptism – For persons who have been saved by accepting Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior and desire to obey Christ by being scripturally baptized by immersion.


2. Letter from another Baptist church – For persons who are saved, have been baptized by immersion after salvation, and are members in good standing of another Baptist church which will transfer them by letter to HBC (we will handle transfer of the letter).


3. Statement of Faith – For persons who are saved and have been baptized by immersion after salvation but are not members of another Baptist church.
We also encourage anyone who has joined or is thinking of joining to go though our new members class.  This class takes place about every three months and lasts for three weeks.  

What We Believe

The Bible

We believe that the Bible is God’s Word. It is accurate, authoritative and applicable to our everyday lives.
2 Timothy 3:15-16


We believe in one eternal God who is the Creator of all things. He exists in three Persons: God the Father, God the Son and God the Holy Spirit. He is totally loving and completely holy.
Matthew 3:16-17 ; 28:191 John 5:7-8Isaiah 9:6


We believe that sin has separated each of us from God and His purpose for our lives.
We believe that in order to receive forgiveness and the ‘new birth’ we must repent of our sins, believe in the Lord Jesus Christ, and submit to His will for our lives.
John 14:6Colossians 1:13-18Romans 5:1Ephesians 2:8-92 Peter 3:91 Timothy 2:3-4

Jesus Christ

We believe that the Lord Jesus Christ as both God and man is the only One who can reconcile us to God. He lived a sinless and exemplary life, died on the cross in our place, and rose again to prove His victory and empower us for life.
We believe that the Lord Jesus Christ is coming back again as He promised.
John 1:1-41 Timothy 3:16Matthew 1:182 Corinthians 5:21Mark 16:5-6Acts 1:9-11John 14:3.

The Holy Spirit

We believe that the Holy Spirit empowers us to live the holy and fruitful lives that God intends for us to live and that through the Holy Spirit we have access to spiritual gifts for the purpose of building and edifying the local church.
2 Peter 1:2-32 Corinthians 3:18Acts 8:14-17Acts 10:44-48Romans 11:29.

The Local Church

We believe in the power and significance of the Church and the necessity of believers to meet regularly together for fellowship, prayer and the ‘breaking of bread’.
We believe that God has individually equipped us so that we can successfully achieve His purpose for our lives which is to worship God, fulfill our role in the Church and serve the community in which we live.
We believe that God wants to heal and transform us so that we can live healthy and blessed lives in order to help others more effectively.

Ephesians 1:222:19-22

Heaven and Hell

We believe that Heaven and Hell are real eternal places and that our eternal destination is determined by our response to the Lord Jesus Christ.
Revelation 20:11-15John 14:1-4Romans 6:23John 3:15-16
