History

HOPE Churchs started with a small group of Chinese-American believers fellowshipping together at a home in Encinitas, CA more than 10 years ago. Today, the Lord has brough more than 250 people from all ages and backgrounds into our church family. Here is our story

1996 3 families started a cozy North San Diego Christian small group.

1997-1998 The small group members grew steadily as families gathered for dinner, with sister Lucy taking care of the children ministry and Pastor Chiang leading the Bible studies. Several people accepted Christ as their Savior and received baptism during this two-year period.

2000 - Our numbers grew to 30-40 adults and 20 children.

06.2001 We started a San Diego North County ministry prayer meeting on Fridays with around 20 faithful prayer warriors.

2002 - EFC San Diego deacons' board approved to support the North County congregation as a satellite/sister church with the goal of bringing it to become a standalone church eventually.

07.2002 Signed leasing agreement with First Baptist Church of Oceanside and started the first official HOPE Church sunday service on the first sunday of September 2002.

09.2002 - 09.2004 North County HOPE Church grew steadily as many came to Christ and the co-worker team worked in unity.

01.2005 North County HOPE Church entered into a new chapter as we began the Encinitas congregation and outreached many Chinese-American non-believers and young families around the area. Coastline Community Church offered their facilities for our usage as we expanded our ministry scope and vision.

07.2008 Established own current Encinits campus location. 

03.2011  Expanded Encinitas campus with the addition of annex hall adjacent to main hall

Today, HOPE Church continues to service the community, meeting the challenges and fulfilling our vision.
