H.O.P.E. SV is a vision inspired by the words of Jesus in Matthew 25:31-46. Santa Clara First Baptist Church is "Building hope in Silicon Valley." The vision of H.O.P.E. is vividly described by Jesus Christ.
"Then the King will say to those on His right hand, 'Come, you blessed of My Father, inherit the kingdom prepared for you from the foundation of the world. For I was hungry and you gave Me food; I was thirsty and you gave Me drink; I was a stranger and you took Me in; I was naked and you clothed Me; I was sick and you visited Me; I was in prison and you came to Me. And the King will answer and say to them, 'Assuredly, I say to you, inasmuch as you did it to one of the least of these My brethren, you did it to Me." (Matthew 25:34-36, 40).
These words define our present vision and the envisioned future: "Live like Christ to Live with Christ."
In order for us to enter the kingdom of God we have to identify with Christ. So if we are followers of Jesus, then we live by what He taught and how He lived.
- Jesus identified with the hungry
- Jesus identified with the thirsty
- Jesus identified with the stranger
- Jesus identified with the naked
- Jesus identified with the sick
- Jesus identified with those in prison
