It is vital to the community of Hope Lutheran that we remain relevant and integrated into our community.  It is equally vital for us to live a life that represents our faith that offers hope and welcome to everyone we meet.  

Our congregation has agreed upon the following to guide us on our best day and to redirect and encourage us on our worst. 

Our mission at Hope Lutheran Church in Riverside, CA is to:

 Live into the ideal that Jesus leads us.

To welcome and respect all people,

To grow in our whole being as gospel ministers,

To equip children for life in the Christian heritage,

To serve human needs in our community,

And to worship God in word, in song, and in life.

Where ever you are in your spiritual journey, you are welcome here. We are not a perfect church or people, but we are a place perfect for real people.   We recognize we are called into relationship with one another in a way that lifts others up as precious children of God.

All people are welcomed and affirmed here .  Welcome to Hope.
