Hopewell's Purpose:

Our Strategy:
     Worship ~ Discipleship ~ Ministry

Our Vision Statement:
     The Vision of Hopewell Baptist Church is to be active in    building the Kingdom of God.  We have a focused purpose of "Leading People" and we believe that Christlikeness is the goal of every genuine Christian.  Through our strategy of Worship, Discipleship, and Ministry, we will 
be the Church that Christ called us to be.   

As you look around this website you can see that there are many opportunities for us to become the three strand cord so that in the world we live we will not be easily broken.

 What We Believe

We believe the Bible is the written Word of God. It is without error and contains the answers to all of our problems. We believe Jesus is God’s only Son and He came to give us eternal life. John 3:16

He was born of a virgin, died on a cross, was buried, rose again three days later, and ascended into Heaven where He awaits those that believe in Him.

We believe all have sinned and are separated from God. Romans 3:23

We believe the penalty for that sin is death but the gift of God is eternal life. Romans 6:23

We are a member of the Southern Baptist Convention. Click here to see the Baptist Faith & Message

Pastor Lee grew up in a Christian home in Wadesboro, NC. After high school, he headed off to UNCC for a high paying career in business. But after a year felt that God had bigger and better plans for his life so he enrolled at Fruitland Baptist Bible Institute. Pastor Lee married Michelle Blount (literally the girl next door and his high school sweetheart), graduated from Fruitland, and a few years later, Brittany was born.
