Hope Community produces a weekly podcast to complement our Sunday gathering at the Northside Center. Listen in, sing along, pray aloud, reflect on what you hear. And, you're invited to send us your questions or comments.

This week we return to our theme, the
Triumph of Christianity. After having analyzed why Christ's redemptive work was necessary (podcast Captured), we look at how the early church grew organically—inspired, directed, empowered and carried forward by the Holy Spirit.

How Firm a Foundation

How firm a foundation, you saints of the Lord
Is laid for your faith in His excellent Word
What more can He say than to you He has said
To you who for refuge to Jesus have fled?

"Fear not, I am with you; O, be not dismayed
For I am your God, and will still give you aid
I'll strengthen you, help you, and cause you to stand
Upheld by my righteous, omnipotent hand

"When through the deep waters I call you to go
The rivers of sorrow shall not overflow
For I will be with you, your troubles to bless
And sanctify to you, your deepest distress

"When through fiery trials your pathway shall lie
My grace, all sufficient, shall be your supply
The flame shall not hurt you, I only design
Your dross to consume and your gold to refine

"The soul that on Jesus has learned to repose
I will not, I will not desert to his foes
That soul, though all hell should endeavor to shake
I'll never, no never, no never forsake

"That soul, though all hell should endeavor to shake
I'll never, no never, no never forsake"


The 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.


O, Come to the Altar

Are you hurting and broken within?
Overwhelmed by the weight of the sin?
Jesus is calling
Have you come to the end of yourself?
Do you thirst for a drink from the well?
Jesus is calling

O, come to the altar
The Father’s arms are opened wide
Forgiveness was bought with
The precious blood of Jesus Christ

Leave behind your regrets and mistakes
Come today there’s no reason to wait
Jesus is calling
Bring your sorrows and trade them for joy
From the ashes a new life is born
Jesus is calling

O, come to the altar
The Father’s arms are opened wide
Forgiveness was bought with
The precious blood of Jesus Christ

O, what a Savior
Isn’t He wonderful
Sing alleluia, Christ is risen
Bow down before Him
For He is Lord of all
Sing alleluia, Christ is risen
