Welcome to Hope Ministries! I’m glad you’ve found our website today and encourage you to dig deeper into these pages to discover more about our ministry and how we’re giving hope and changing lives.
Since 1915, Hope Ministries has faithfully served people in Central Iowa experiencing homelessness, hunger, abuse or addiction. Our services are offered freely to anyone who comes here seeking help to overcome huge challenges in their lives and hope for a brighter future.
The support of our generous donors and volunteers makes it possible to rescue hurting men, women and children, meeting their immediate need for food, clothing and shelter. Our life recovery programs offer a clear path forward to those who need the love of Jesus in their lives and guidance out of desperate situations.
Your partner in ministry,
We seek to provide quality opportunities and experiences to our employees, providing them with opportunities for personal, spiritual and professional growth.
We believe that there is one God, eternally existing in three persons: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.
We believe in the deity of Jesus Christ, in His virgin birth, in His sinless life, in His miracles, in His vicarious and atoning death through His shed blood, in His bodily resurrection, in His ascension to the right hand of the Father and in His future return in power and glory.
We believe that the Holy Spirit personally indwells all believers, bearing witness to their relationship with God; and imparts spiritual enlightenment, conviction of sin, and divine power for witnessing and service.
We believe the Bible, as contained in the Old and New Testaments, is the inspired written Word of God. As such it is infallible and authoritative in all moral and spiritual teaching.
We believe in the bodily resurrection of the saved to eternal blessedness and joy, and of the lost to judgment and eternal conscious punishment.
Our desire is that all people will place their trust in Jesus Christ. We believe it is essential for all people to believe in Jesus as their Savior and receive Him as their Lord by the regeneration of the Holy Spirit.
We believe that God alone holds the power to set us free from the bondage of sin, addictions, and compulsions that destroy the quality of life that God intends for us to live.
We believe in the spiritual unity of believers in Christ and that we should speak with a united voice for the welfare of the community.
