There are lots of great ministry ideas out there, but our purpose is to impact Anaheim in particular. Hope is the response of one couple who heard a call to “win this city for Christ,” and that’s exactly what we’ve set out to do. Hope is a community church, focused on bringing people together through fellowship, worship, and Christ. It’s a journey that’s continually being reshaped, but it’s our journey and we love it!



“Exciting” may be the best word to describe Hope’s journey. At 10:00 a.m. on Sunday, September 1, 2002, we held our first service in the rented cafeteria of Katella High School. The floors were filthy and our worship was nestled between the lunch tables that had been hurriedly pushed aside. In the absence of musicians, we sang to Christian songs recorded from the radio. Yet even in those humble beginnings, those who were with us on day one shared a sense of enthusiasm that this would be their church; and this could be the church to reach their family and friends. Hope was born.


Since that day over 10 years ago, Hope has grown into a pillar in the community, currently residing in the heart of downtown Anaheim at the Anaheim Community Center. Our outreach programs like our annual Bag Of Hope Project has reached thousands of families in this city as we continue to strive to make a lasting impression in the place we call ours. Our humble church family is always growing and we’d love for you to be a part of it!
