Door of Hope Church Mission Statement


Biblical Mandate
Isaiah 61:1-3

The Spirit of the Lord GOD is upon me,
Because the LORD has anointed me
to bring good news to the afflicted;
He has sent me to bind up the brokenhearted,
To proclaim liberty to captives
And freedom to prisoners;
To proclaim the favorable year of the LORD
And the day of vengeance of our God;
To comfort all who mourn,
To grant those who mourn in Zion,
Giving them a garland instead of ashes,
The oil of gladness instead of mourning,
The mantle of praise instead of the spirit of fainting.
So they will be called oaks of righteousness,
The planting of the LORD, that He may be glorified.
