Our Mission

Hope City Stockton’s mission is to demonstrate the love of Father God to our community in a way that is supernatural. We want to reach every sphere of influence with the message of the Kingdom of God with salvation, miracles, healing and deliverance with signs and wonders following. We want to epuip believers to live in their true identity, giftings and potential to demonstrate the Kingdom of God.

Our Vision

Hope City Stockton’s vision is to help create an atmosphere for believers to be trained and equipped to walk in their kingdom identity as sons and daughters. The means by which we do this are through the supernatural school of ministry and outreaches. The HCS team have a heart to love and minister to the poor, the needy, the broken and the orphans (those who are literally and spiritually.) We want to release hope over their lives through our outreaches. A big part of the heart of Hope City Stockton ‘s ministries is to see the sons and daughters of God move into their true identity, giftings and potential as followers of Christ so that they can fulfill the destiny that He has for them. We at HCS place a strong value on equipping, activating and sending out both young and old, as well as raising up Kingdom minded followers of Christ.
