welcome to hope community church
We are an ethnically and economically diverse church in East Austin. We follow Jesus through living out our values of worship, family, and compassion within the context of Christian community. We serve our community through strategic justice initiatives, and living as counter-cultural followers of Jesus in every aspect of our lives.
Hope Community Church is a diverse church proclaiming the good news of Jesus Christ in Austin. Our life as a church is expressed through our three values of worship, family, and compassion.
By worship we respond to God’s grace through offering all of ourselves to Christ.
By family we seek to be a place known for our meaningful community where people can find a place to call home through lifelong relationships, encouragement and support through prayer and a focus on God as the One who is worthy of our praise.
By compassion we display the light of Christ through grace and hospitality toward one another, as well as by intentionally demonstrating and declaring the gospel in the darkest places of our city.
Where we meet
We are strategically located in East Austin. Our conviction as a church is to be present in the heart of the city where the complexity of diversity and density intersect.
We are currently meeting at Memorial United Methodist Church - 6100 Berkman Drive Austin, TX, 78723.
Ministries and Initiatives
There are a variety of ways to connect into the life of Hope through our ministries and initiatives. Our ministries create intentional pathways for individuals and families to connect into the life of the church. Our initiatives are strategic opportunities for our church to come together to meet tangible needs in marginalized communities throughout Austin.

What to expect on Sundays
We gather Sunday mornings at 11:00am. During our Sunday worship gatherings we worship through songs, prayers, the preaching of the word, and partaking of the sacrament of communion. We intentionally keep our worship environment simple in order to keep the focus on worshiping Jesus.
It’s normal for various aspects of our worship to be in different languages as we celebrate and highlight our differences and beauty as culturally diverse image bearers of God.
