Faith Matters

Week 3 – Loving God-Faith Matters. When fully developed, this site will feature presentation topics that deal with developing a right relationship with God and matters of faith.  When on this site, a corresponding live web video channel or Faith Channel will also launch on the top side where you see an illustrative graphic.  It will also be interactive with social commentary features.  Examples of themes to be discussed here: developing a right relationship with God, faith building, prophecies, doctrines etc. 

This method and programming style of recurring monthly and weekly themes for the church to promote wholesome living and the hope of life to come, complemented by thematic web video channels and two-way social engagement to expand Gospel Outreach worldwide is original to HopeSide and was first developed in 2009-2010.  Our hope and prayer is that God will use this and or any appropriate method to bring people home to His kingdom.

Currently, the content that appears here only shows a recap of whatever happens at HopeSide Church every 3rd week of any month with links to some interesting site theme related articles at the bottom.  Click here to see the playlist of topics under this theme currently uploaded on YouTube.
