The heart behind Hope for this Nation
"IN HIS NAME THE NATIONS WILL PUT THEIR HOPE"
THE VISION: A TRANSFORMED
NATION WHERE JESUS IS KNOWN, EXALTED AND FOLLOWED.
One day, every person and nation will see who God is! Until that day comes, our assignment as followers of Jesus is to present, represent and spread His Kingdom here and now, in every place and every city we are. We do this by demonstrating His love and power. God’s presence transforms lives, places and nations!
We believe God for revival - in our nation, in the Nordic countries and across the world. A fiery revival and movement that awakens people to love God passionately, to believe God for the impossible, to dare to follow His voice, and to boldly step out in gifts and callings. We long to see a united people of God, of all ages, - worshipping God in unity and freedom, in city after city - understanding who they are created to be and equipped for a life in communion with the Holy Spirit.
Hope for this Nation is a non-denominational Christian movement. We travel to cities and places within Sweden to partner with local churches in worship, time before the face of God, teaching, discipleship training, prayer ministry and street evangelism.
The Hope for this Nation team is made up of people from different parts of Sweden, different churches and denominations, who together share the same heart and vision to see a nation transformed.
THE WORD OF GOD
The Bible is the Word of God. His Word is true - a transforming power that touches every area of our lives.
2 Tim 3:16, Heb 4:12, John 20:30-31, John 21:25
God is the creator of heaven and earth. God is one, revealed in three persons; The Father, The Son and The Holy Spirit.
Acts 17:26, Ef 1:1-14, 17-23, John 14:16-17
God is almighty, holy and altogether good. God is our Father and we are His beloved children. He is longing for a close relationship with each and every one of us. He made that possible through sending His only Son.
John 1:12, Gal 4:4-7
Jesus is the Son of God, fully God and fully man. Jesus is the way to the Father and He shows us who the Father is. Jesus became man, took the sin of the world upon himself in His death and was raised to life again. He will come back to reign and abolish all darkness.
John 1:1-5, 9-18
THE HOLY SPIRIT
The Holy Spirit is the presence of God on the earth and in our lives. It is possible for every believer to live filled with the Holy Spirit and through His power and gifts manifest the Kingdom of God here on earth.
John 7:37-39, John 14:15-17, Rom 8:14-16, 26-27, Acts 1:8, 1 Cor 12, Ef 1:13-14, 17
WE ARE CREATED TO HAVE A RELATIONSHIP WITH GOD
Every person is created in the image of God and to have a personal relationship with God. That relationship is our first and greatest call. God loves every person unconditionally.
Matt 22:37-38, 1 John 4:19
Every person is in desperate need of Jesus. Jesus is the only way to salvation, a redeemed fellowship with God and eternal life. Salvation is a gift available for all, and it is received through faith in Jesus as the Son of God, and in His death and resurrection. Through salvation, we receive the forgiveness of our sins and freedom in the Name of Jesus.
Rom 3:23-24, Ef 1:7, Rom 10:9, John 3:16, John 8:36
We believe in the importance of Christian community. We are therefore encouraging believers to be a part of a local church. Together, we are the Body of Christ on the earth.
John 17:21-23, 1 Cor 12:12ff
We confess the Apostolic confession of faith.
