While our gathering location remains closed due to the pandemic, Hope Community is producing a weekly online experience to compliment our Sunday gathering under the trees. Listen in, sing along, pray with us, even send in your questions or comments.

The Bible refers to numerous kings and commanders. Most are inconsequential. But there are lessons to be learned from several of them. This series begins with a man who built the great Babylonian Empire. He boasted, "I've built a vast empire with great palaces, and have done it all by my own power and for personal glory." Then God responds. ~

Who has held the oceans in His hands?
Who has numbered every grain of sand?
Kings and nations tremble at His voice
All creation rises to rejoice

Behold our God seated on His throne
Come let us adore Him
Behold our King, nothing can compare
Come let us adore Him

Who has given counsel to the Lord?
Who can question any of His words?
Who can teach the One who knows all things?
Who can fathom all His wondrous deeds?

Behold our God seated on His throne
Come let us adore Him
Behold our King, nothing can compare
Come let us adore Him

Who has felt the nails upon His hands?
Bearing all the guilt of sinful man
God eternal, humbled to the grave
Jesus, Savior risen now to reign

Behold our God seated on His throne
Come let us adore Him
Behold our King, nothing can compare
Come let us adore Him

You will reign forever
repeats
You will reign forever (let Your glory fill the earth)
repeats

Behold our God seated on His throne
Come let us adore Him
Behold our King, nothing can compare
Come let us adore Him

Lord's Prayer
Our Father who art in heaven, hallowed be Thy name
Thy kingdom come, Thy will be done on earth as it is in heaven
Give us this day our daily bread
And forgive us our sins as we forgive those who sin against us
Lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil
For Thine is the kingdom, and the power, and the glory forever
Amen

By Faith

By faith we see the hand of God
In the light of creation’s grand design
In the lives of those who prove His faithfulness
Who walk be faith and not by sight
By faith our fathers roamed the earth
With the power of His promise in their hearts
Of a holy city built by God’s own hand
A place where peace and justice reign

We will stand as children of the promise
We will fix our eyes on Him our soul’s reward
Till the race is finished and the work is done
We’ll walk by faith and not by sight

By faith the prophets saw a day
When the longed-for Messiah would appear
With the power to break the chains of sin and death
And rise triumphant from the grave
By faith the church was called to go
In the power of the Spirit to the lost
To deliver captives and to preach good news
In every corner of the earth

We will stand as children of the promise
We will fix our eyes on Him our soul’s reward
Till the race is finished and the work is done
We’ll walk by faith and not by sight

By faith this mountain shall be moved
And the power of the gospel shall prevail
For we know in Christ all things are possible
For all who call upon His name

We will stand as children of the promise
We will fix our eyes on Him our soul’s reward
Till the race is finished and the work is done
We’ll walk by faith and not by sight
O, we will stand as children of the promise
We will fix our eyes on Him our soul’s reward
Till the race is finished and the work is done—
We’ll walk by faith and not by sight
Who walk by faith and not by sight
