WORSHIP WITH BLESSED HOPE CHAPEL ENSENADA
"But the hour is coming, and now is, when the true worshipers will worship the Father in Spirit and truth; for the Father is seeking such to worship Him." John 4:23
Matthew 28:19, 20
"Go therefore and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit. Teaching them to observe all things that I have commanded you;"
Who can give a better explanation of our mission than the One who assigned it? Our goals are simple and found in the pages of Scripture: to love our neighbors as ourselves, to minister to the poor, to feed the hungry, to clothe the naked, to visit the widow and orphan, to pray for the sick, and to preach the gospel to every creature, discipling those who desire the truth. Our main objective is to lift up the Scriptures and proclaim the whole counsel of God, which is alive and active, sharper than a two edged sword. As people grow in the truth and produce fruit, Jesus and the Father will be glorified.
“A church…which does not exist to do good in the slums, and dens, and kennels of the city, is a church that has no reason to justify its longer existing. A church that does not exist to reclaim heathenism, to fight with evil, to destroy error, to put down falsehood, a church that does not exist to take the side of the poor, to denounce injustice and to hold up righteousness, is a church that has no right to be. . ."
Charles H. Spurgeon
ABOUT THE MINISTRY
"Let your light shine before men in such a way that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father who is in heaven."
We are a new church plant in Ensenada Mexico, seeking to teach the word of God in truth. We desire to see people free from sin and living a transformed life in Christ Jesus. There are so many false churches and religions here and our hearts were moved into action by the Holy Spirit. We have services on Sunday at 2pm and Tuesday at 6:30pm, going verse by verse through the Old and New testament. Besides that we visit the rich and poor, pray for the sick, bring the word into peoples homes, build houses, do building projects for the poor, do regular outreaches in the hills, preach the gospel in the inner city, bring the gospel to multiple drug programs, teach children, visit widows and orphans... whatever Jesus would be doing is what we strive to do, in spirit and truth. We do it for one reason, because we genuinely love God and man.
STATEMENT OF FAITH
"Know what you believe and why"
We are in agreement with the teachings of the early Church, as implemented by Jesus Christ, the Son of God
WE BELIEVE that there is one living and true GOD, eternally existing in three persons: The Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit, equal in power and glory; that this triune God created all, upholds all, and governs all.
WE BELIEVE that the SCRIPTURES of the Old and New Testaments are the Work of God, fully inspired without error in the original manuscripts, and the infallible rule of faith and practice.
WE BELIEVE in GOD THE FATHER, an Infinite, personal, Spirit, perfect in holiness, wisdom, power and love; that He concerns Himself mercifully in the affairs of men; that He hears and answers prayer; and that He Saves from sin and death all who come to Him through Jesus Christ.
WE BELIEVE in JESUS CHRIST, God’s only begotten Son, conceived by the Holy Spirit. We believe in His virgin birth, sinless life, miracles and teachings, His substitutionary atoning death, bodily resurrection, Ascension into heaven, perpetual intercession for His people and personal, visible return to earth.
WE BELIEVE in the HOLY SPIRIT, Who came forth from the Father and Son to convict the world of sin, righteousness, and judgment, and to regenerate, sanctify and empower for ministry all who believe in Christ; we believe the Holy Spirit indwells every believer in Jesus Christ and that He is an abiding Helper, Teacher, and Guide. We believe in the present ministry of the Holy Spirit and in the exercise of all the gifts of the Spirit.
WE BELIEVE that all PEOPLE are sinners by nature and choice and, therefore, are under condemnation; that God regenerates by the Holy Spirit, those who repent of their sins and confess Jesus Christ as Lord; that Jesus Christ baptizes the seeking believer with the Holy Spirit and power for service.
WE BELIEVE in the one true CHURCH, as established by Jesus Christ and His apostles, the living spiritual body, of which Christ is the Head and all regenerated persons are members.
WE BELIEVE that the Lord Jesus Christ committed two ORDINANCES to the Church: 1) baptism, and 2) the Lord’s Supper. We believe in baptism by immersion and communion open to all believers.
WE BELIEVE also in the LAYING ON OF HANDS, for ordination of pastors, elders, and deacons. We believe also in anointing the sick with oil.
WE BELIEVE in the personal, visible RETURN OF CHRIST to earth and the establishment of His Kingdom, in the resurrection of the body, the final judgment and eternal blessing of the righteous and endless suffering of the wicked.

Supporting the Ministry
2 Corinthians 9:7
"Each one must do just as he has purposed in his heart, not grudgingly or under compulsion, for God loves a cheerful giver."
If you are a Christian, we would ask you to prayerfully consider helping support us in this work. The truth is that God will provide some how, whether it is through you or others, so we trust Him. But, like the apostle Paul, we are making the need known to the Church. Honestly, Mexico has much poverty, so starting a ministry from the ground up is not easy, but takes much prayer and labor. If you don't like to think of giving money to ministries then I would ask you to please not give, but rather focus on walking closely to Jesus so you will hear His heartbeat. Jesus calls us to work while it is called "today". That has been my goal since 2002. Being here I see so much need, so my prayer would be that people would see the need around them in the world and be moved with compassion. If you want to see what we do, come visit. If you chose to support the work then we thank you very much, as there are many costs to being here, and many needs to give to. Giving to God's work has eternal rewards. And no matter what, please, please, please pray for us, that God will empower us through the Holy Spirit, to guide us with wisdom, and compel us by
His love. God bless you, brothers and sisters.
