About Beacon of Hope
Beacon of Hope is a non-denominational Christian church on Martha's Vineyard.
It was started in 2014 by a group of believers in Jesus Christ who were called to start
a new fellowship for Islanders and visitors alike.
After setting an excellent foundation, Rev. Don Bradley retired as the lead pastor.
Rev. Greg Bar returned to the Island in January of 2020 to pastor the church
(having ministered on M.V. previously from 1986 through 2004),
and Rev. John McCormick is our Associate Pastor.
As a body of believers we are committed to following Jesus every day with integrity, loving our neighbors, caring for those in need, studying His word, worshipping and praying together, and growing in His grace and wisdom. Our Book is the Bible, our Lord is Jesus Christ, our spiritual family is everyone who is a Christian, and our neighbors are the world.
We recognize that we have not yet "arrived", but are on a journey
as disciples (students) of Jesus Christ,
and we invite you to join us.
We invite you to visit any one of our meetings, check us out on Facebook and contact us there, or by phone (774-310-3343) or email (firstname.lastname@example.org).
You may also email the pastor directly at email@example.com.
Our meetings are also on YouTube (hopemv) and MVTV Sundays mornings at 11 (and mvtv.org).
" For everyone has sinned;
we all fall short of God’s glorious standard. Yet God, in His grace, freely makes us right in His sight. He did this through Christ Jesus when He freed us from the penalty for our sins. For God presented Jesus as the sacrifice for sin. People are made right with God when they believe that Jesus sacrificed his life, shedding his blood."
