The heart behind Hope for this nation
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.
"IN HIS NAME THE NATIONS WILL PUT THEIR HOPE"
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 Bible is the word of God. God's word is true, a transforming force 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, Eph 1: 1-14, 17-23, John 14: 16-17
God is omnipotent, holy and all-good. God is our Father and we are His beloved children. He longs to live in a close relationship with each of us. He made it possible by sending his Son.
John 1:12, Gal 4: 4-7
Jesus is the Son of God, fully God and fully human. Jesus is the way to the Father and shows us who the Father is. Jesus became man, died for the sin of the world, and rose again. He is coming back to rule and wipe out all darkness.
Jn 1: 1-5, 9-18
The Holy Spirit is God's presence on earth and in our lives. It is available for every believer to live filled with the Holy Spirit and to manifest the kingdom of God here on earth through His power and gifts.
John 7: 37-39, John 14: 15-17, Romans 8: 14-16, 26-27, Acts 1: 8, 1 Cor 12, Eph 1: 13-14, 17
WE ARE CREATED FOR RELATIONSHIP WITH GOD
Every human being is created in the image of God and in a personal relationship with God. That relationship is our first and greatest calling. God loves every human being unconditionally.
Matt 22: 37-38, 1 John 4:19
Every human being is in desperate need of Jesus. Jesus is the only way to salvation, an established communion with God and eternal life. Salvation is a gift available to all and is received through faith in Jesus' death and resurrection. In salvation we receive the forgiveness of sins and freedom in the name of Jesus.
Rom 3: 23-24, Eph 1: 7, Rom 10: 9, John 3:16, John 8:36
We believe in the importance of a Christian community. Therefore, we encourage belonging to a local congregation. Together we are the body of Christ on earth.
Jn 17: 21-23, 1 Cor 12: 12ff
