God the Father
Elevate Hope House puts God first in everything that we do. This means continuously seeking His righteousness and totally relying on Him. “But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you.” (Matthew 6:33)
Elevate Hope House values faithful followers of God who stand before vacant fields, push fear aside, and put their hands to the plow and get a little messy, by placing their trust in Jesus Christ. “She considers a field and buys it; with the fruit of her hands she plants a vineyard.” (Proverbs 31:16)
Elevate Hope House believes that all of our blessings, all of our gifts, and all of our favor comes from God. We call all believers with a specific heart for this ministry to serve others with their servant heart, according to their God given gifts. “Each of you should use whatever gift you have received to serve others, as faithful stewards of God’s grace in its various forms.” (I Peter 4:10)
Elevate Hope House believes that as Christians we are called to be “set apart,” – holy and righteous. We desire to be vessels for God, and for Him to do His will through us, so that we may grow in His love every day. “Blessed are those who hunger and thirst for righteousness, for they will be filled… Blessed are those who are persecuted because of righteousness, for theirs is the kingdom of Heaven.” (Matthew 5:6, 10)
Elevate Hope House believes that true love comes from God, and God alone. As Christians we value God’s love and have a desire to provide this Godly love of grace to every young mom and her child. “But because of His great love for us, God, who is rich in mercy, made us alive with Christ even when we were dead in sin – it is by grace you have been saved.” (Ephesians 2:4-5)
Elevate Hope House bases our hope on Jesus Christ’s promises of redemption for all who have sinned and the free gift of eternal life. Because of our hope and faith in Him, we are able to be patient and persevere, even though Jesus’ promises of eternal life are unseen and unrealized in this present time.Our hope is in God alone. “’For I know the plans I have for you,’ declares the LORD, ‘plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.” (Jeremiah 29:11)
