Port of Hope purpose and
statement of faith

Port of Hope Ministries exists to glorify God by helping seafarers and maritime workers find new life and spiritual growth through Jesus Christ.

This is done through the honored work of chaplaincy which serves the physical, emotional and spiritual needs of seafarers without regard to race, nationality, rating or rank, religion or personal lifestyle.

Through genuine and caring love, acts of kindness and words of encouragement and comfort, all guarded by high ethics, we hope to build moral and spiritual character and ultimately draw them toward Christ and introduce them to his offer of salvation.

The Statement of Faith of Port of Hope Ministries:

The Holy Bible, inspired by God, inerrant in the original writing, supreme and final authority in faith and life...
One God
, eternally existent in three persons, Father, Son, and Holy Spirit...
The Lord Jesus Christ, God manifest in the flesh, His virgin birth, His sinless human life, His divine miracles, His vicarious and atoning death, His bodily resurrection, His ascension, His mediatorial work, and His Personal return in power and glory...
The Salvation of lost and sinful man through the shed blood of the Lord Jesus Christ by faith apart from works, and regeneration by the Holy Spirit...
The Holy Spirit, by whose indwelling the believer is enabled to live a holy life, to witness and work for the Lord Jesus Christ...
The Unity of the Spirit of all true believers, the local Church and the culturally diverse universal Church, the Body of Christ...
The Two Ordinances, those of baptism to walk in newness of life in Christ, and the Lord's Supper to celebrate both his suffering and resurrection and the New Covenant of forgiveness and salvation...
The Resurrection of both the saved and the lost; the wicked being separated from God's presence, but the righteous, in glorious bodies, living and reigning with him forever.

Port of Hope Ministries is of the evangelical tradition and maintains a strong Biblical position in its theological stand.
