who we are

TroyHope Ministry is an English-speaking Ministry affiliated with the Korean United Methodist Church of Metro Detroit in Troy, Michigan. Our congregation is a multicultural mix of God-loving people from our local communities, extended communities, and from all around the world. Some are from right next door, others were born overseas or live in or have come from elsewhere in the United States. All are welcome in our doors. "Breaking news, people" - You do not have to be of Korean descent to join with us. While we are affiliated with a Korean Church, more than one third of our congregation are not of Korean descent at all. We believe this is how church should be. We'd like to see you and to meet with you, no matter your ethnicity, no matter your wishes and wants in life... we are all the church of Jesus Christ. Come... be a part of this with us. Let us rejoice in the Lord together.

Our ministry motto is "Disciples Making Disciples of Jesus Christ"

TroyHope exists to exalt the name of the Lord Jesus Christ, while reaching out and equipping all people with the purpose of fulfilling His Great Commission.

We are a gospel-based church, with a relentless passion for love of God, concern for one another, and those in our local and global communities. Educating our children to be better stewards of God's commandments is a primary goal at TroyHope. Doing good works all in God’s name, and for His glory alone is a guiding principle that we share. Our worship services are contemporary in nature. Come and visit us! 

What we believe

As United Methodists, we believe that...

  • We are called as a people to worship the one true God who has revealed Himself as Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.

  • We are a biblical church and acknowledge the Bible as the primary foundation and final authority of our faith and action.

  • In continuity with Christians through the ages and the historic church, we affirm the Apostles’ Creed and the Nicene Creed as faithful declarations of biblical truth.

  • We believe in the necessity of faith in Jesus Christ as the crucified and risen Savior and Lord of all.

•We believe God offers grace and unconditional love to all, providing forgiveness of sins through Jesus Christ and transforming our lives into the image of Christ through the indwelling of the Holy Spirit.

•We affirm the active work of the Holy Spirit, who cleanses and heals the life of the believer, bestows gifts upon all believers for the work of ministry, empowers us in prayer, and leads us in understanding the Word of God.

•We believe every Christian is called into an intimate relationship with God, faithful relationships with other Christians, and Christ-like mission in the world.
