Hope for Atlantic City is a Christian organization which partners with local churches and other like-minded organizations to bring hope and community development to targeted communities by offering Christ-centered programs and services to meet the physical, spiritual, and social development needs of individuals and families.
The Network developed out of congregations and ministries predominately in the Presbyterian Church in America, but now includes some non-PCA works as well. Our mission is to plant, grow, and encourage urban churches that pursue the poor. Our vision is to develop a coalition of churches committed to these common goals so that we might encourage, learn from, and support each other as God gives us resources to do so.
The Presbyterian Church in America (PCA) was formed in 1973 to be a denomination that is “Faithful to the Scriptures, True to the Reformed Faith, and Obedient to the Great Commission.”
The PCA is an evangelical denomination in that we proclaim the gospel of salvation through faith in Jesus Christ. The word “evangelical” comes from the Greek word meaning “good news.” We desire all people to trust in the saving work of Jesus and enjoy eternal life in him.
The PCA is a reformed denomination in that we believe in the biblical truth proclaimed during the Protestant Reformation. The Word of God, rather than tradition, is the only guide for the Church. God alone saves through his immeasurable mercy and according to his sovereign plan. We believe the system of doctrine taught in the Bible is summarized well in the Westminster Confession of Faith with the Larger and Shorter Catechisms.
MTW is the global missions-sending agency of the Presbyterian Church in America (PCA). We want the gospel to spread throughout the world, the Church to grow, Satan's kingdom destroyed, and Christ's reign extended to the ends of the earth.
