Brief History

Hope International Bible & Mission Church is an English-speaking Bible and mission church.  Our international congregation comes from many different Christian denominations (or church background).

The church is affiliated with the family churches of the International Baptist Convention (IBC).  Our missionary work is focused in Rwanda and Ghana

Giving (Tithes & Offerings)

We believe that the giving of tithes and offerings as taught in the Bible is a source of blessing to the giver as well as the means by which the Church meets the needs of the body and continues to exist.  Cash offerings are collected on a weekly basis during Sunday services.

Church members may carry out fundraisers to raise money for a specific purpose.  Contributions can also be made directly to our bank account:

The purpose of the contribution should be clearly marked by the giver, e.g. “Rwanda Mission”, “Ghana Mission”, “Tithes“, etc
