II Chronicles 7:14
If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land.
Happy New Year from the Ministers and Staff at
Dove of Hope Church
As we enter into this New Year let us not dwell on the things of the past that can potentially bring us pain and suffering but let us dwell on the new things to come:
“Forget the former things; do not dwell on the past. See, I am doing a new thing! Now it springs up; do you not perceive it? I am making a way in the wilderness and streams in the wasteland.” Isaiah 43:18-19
The New Year is a time of renewal, a renewal of Hope of Faith and of Life. Let us look forward and not backward striving always for the prize:
“Brothers and sisters, I do not consider myself yet to have taken hold of it. But one thing I do: Forgetting what is behind and straining toward what is ahead, I press on toward the goal to win the prize for which God has called me heavenward in Christ Jesus.” Philippians 3:13-14
As we go through this New Year let us not lose focus on our purpose and our calling:
Down home country preaching with traditional values in a modern world.

As we move forward this year let us always strive to be that light that God has called us to be:
Mat 5:14 You are the light of the world. A city that is set on a hill cannot be hidden.
Mat 5:15 Nor do men light a lamp and put it under the grain-measure, but on a lampstand. And it gives light to all who are in the house.
Mat 5:16 Let your light so shine before men that they may see your good works and glorify your Father who is in Heaven.
And remember that God is able to give us everything that we need to help us through not only the bad times but the good as well:
2Co 9:8 And God is able to make all grace abound toward you, that in everything, always having all self-sufficiency, you may abound to every good work;
Faith is more than religion. It's about a relationship between a person and God. Together, we make faith worth living.
