MARRIAGE - Holy Spirit of Hope takes its Biblical commission to make disciples (believers in Jesus) very seriously! The most important event in a person’s life is the entry into a life-long commitment with another with God’s blessings, called Marriage. There is no better time to start your personal relationship with God. We celebrate your marriage through a Catholic Mass or a Non-Catholic Christian Service. If one is without Baptism, First Communion or Confirmation, they will be conveyed at the Marriage ceremony. The date for your wedding is according to your schedule! REMARRIAGE are performed at Holy Spirit of Hope because the Bible says: “all have sinned and fallen short of the glory of God” (Romans 3:23) yet God forgave all our sins when we believe in the cross of Christ, “For God so loved the world that He gave His one and only Son so that none would perish but all who believe in Him would have everlasting life.” (John 3:16) Those in a civil union are encouraged to enter into a God-blessed marriage. Many couples go through life wishing they were able to have a ‘church’ wedding but their church will not marry them. We will do that for you. We want to help you fulfill that dream of having a ‘church’ wedding. QUINCEAÑERAS & SWEET 16’s - Holy Spirit of Hope is serious about its Biblical Commission to make disciples (believers in Jesus)!

THE BIBLE is the inspired and inerrant word of God available in many translations and used to teach and equip. (2 Tim 3:16-17) FAITH is the only way to understand and receive our salvation. (Eph 2:8-9) THE TRINITY is the description of 1 God in 3 Persons, God the Father who is attributed with creation, God the Son who is our redeemer, and God the Holy Spirit who is the life of the Church. (Mt 28:19) THE CREEDS are Statements of fundamental Christian beliefs developed by the first seven Councils of the Church known as the Apostle's, Nicene, and Athenasian Creeds. These explain our faith in plain, simple, and uncomplicated manners; Bible summary. THE COMMANDMENTS are basic guides for living sound moral lives in our relationships with God and neighbors in the form of Ten Commandments, and are fulfilled by Jesus’ command of love. (Mt 22:37-40) THE CHURCH is the body of believers in Jesus Christ, Christ being the head. The Catholic Charismatic church is a branch of the one, holy, catholic (universal), and apostolic Church. (Eph 2:19-22; 5:23-24) SIN is any unloving act against God’s creation that separates us from God. Confessing our sin brings God’s forgiveness by our faith in Christ’s death on the cross accomplished 2,000 years ago. (1 Jn 1:9) SATAN is the accuser of mankind who lies, cheats, kills, steals, and destroys through confusion of the truth. He is a defeated being who has as much power over our will as we allow him to have. God’s infinite love for us allows us free will choice between His love and Satan's lies. (Jn 8:32) SALVATION is the redemption from eternal punishment, to an eternal life of glory with God, not by works, but by faith in the grace of God trough the atoning death of Jesus Christ. (Eph 2:8-9) SACRAMENTS Outward signs of an invisible grace and NOT replacing faith as a prerequisite to salvation. 1. BAPTISM is the event that starts spiritual life through membership in the Church. Infant Baptism allows parents/God-parents to accept responsibility for child until Confirmation through their acceptance of Jesus in their life. (Mt 28:19-20; Mk 16:15-16, Lk 5:17-26) 2. COMMUNION, also EUCHARIST, is the remembrance of Jesus’ Last Supper. Our faith converts bread to the Body and wine to the Blood of our Savior. We consume as He directed. (Mt 26:26-28; Mk 14:22-25; Lk 22:19-20; Jn 6 all; 1 Cor 10:16; and 11:27) 3. RECONCILIATION, also CONFESSION, is an event through which one admits sins and hears God’s forgiveness and Biblical counsel for improvement. General reconciliation is part of the Mass, but special counseling is available from the pastor upon request. (2 Cor 5:16-20; Jms 5:16; 1 Jn 1:9) 4. CONFIRMATION is an event through which one confirms the affirmations made by parents and sponsors during infant Baptism. It is also the “altar call” experience in which, by the Holy Spirit, we learn how to enter into an intimate relationship with Jesus by the use of the gifts and fruits of the Spirit. Quinceañeras are conducted as Confirmation rites. (Jn 3 & 14:25-26) 5. MATRIMONY, also MARRIAGE, the event through which a couple receive understanding of how to live together forever as husband and wife in the same intimacy as Christ and the Church. Remarriage is administered without judgment. (Gen 2:24; Mt 19:6 cf; Mk 10:11-12) 6. ANOINTING OF THE SICK. It is through this sacrament that one can be healed physically, but most certainly spiritually (by faith) through a deeper focus on the love of our Lord. (Mt 10:8; Mk 16:17-18; Jms 5:14-15) 7. HOLY ORDERS, also ORDINATION, is the sacrament through which deacons, priests and bishops are installed for service of the faithful. Apostolic Succession, which traces the lines of consecration of a bishop back to the Apostles, is maintained in this Church. As in the Roman Catholic Church, the priest serves the bishop by helping the local community enter into a personal relationship with Jesus Christ. Our clergy can be and often are married. (1 Tim 3:1-13; Tit 1:6-9; Acts 6:6; Eph 4:11-13)
