Our Mission

Our History

Rev, Philip and his wife, Jummai, and their children emigrated from Nigeria, from a Muslim
dominated society. They have been engaged in outreach and discipleship ministry, especially
among Muslims. Philip said, “I will always be grateful to God for calling us to reach out to this
people group for 26 years now! We have overflowing joy at the privilege of seeing our “spiritual
children” from Islam growing in their faith—some of whom are now themselves spiritual
Their goal in Minnesota is to start a church where believers from Muslim background or any
religion will be accommodated.
It wasn’t long on their arrival in Minnesota that the Lord connected them with some men from
the Sudanese community who desire to start a church but had no pastor to lead them.
Prayerfully they started gathered in one of the brothers’ house and started fellowship that grew
to the church planted in 2015.
Through the years of Rev. Philip and his family in Minnesota they have been involved with the
northern Nigeria community, Zumunta Association as a third place. Haven seen the need of the
gospel within the community he reach-out to the believers among them and cast out the vision
of planting a church and the response was positive.

About the Church

    The biblical foundation of Hope of Nations Gospel/Fellowship Church is based on Isaiah 2:2, "In the last days the mountain of the Lord's temple will be established as the highest of the
mountains ... and all nations will stream to it." This prophetic metaphor was fulfilled when
Christ established His church. He continues to draw nations in expansion of His kingdom above
all religions.

   Our local assembly is a missions-minded church, practically sharing the love of Christ to all
people groups and welcoming everyone, regardless of status, ethnicity or color.

  Our church is anchored and rooted in the principles of the apostles' teaching, equipping thesaints for ministry, teaching the true undiluted gospel and trusting transformation by the Spirit.

                                  Statement of Faith


God is the Creator and Ruler of the universe. He has eternally existed in three persons: the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit. These three are co-equal and are one God.

Genesis 1:1,26,27, 3:22; Psalm 90:2; Matthew 28:19;
1 Peter 1:2; 2 Corinthians 13:14


Jesus Christ is the Son of God. He is co-equal with the Father. Jesus lived a sinless human life and offered Himself as the perfect sacrifice for the sins of all people by dying on a cross. He arose from the dead after three days to demonstrate His power over sin and death. He ascended to Heaven’s glory and will return again someday to earth to reign as King of Kings, and Lord of Lords.

Matthew 1:22, 23; Isaiah 9:6; John 1:1-5; 14:10-30;
Hebrews 4:14,15; 1 Corinthians 15:3,4; Romans 1:3,4;
Acts 1:9-11; 1 Timothy 6:14,15; Titus 2:13


The Holy Spirit is co-equal with the Father and the Son of God. He is present in the world to make people aware of their need for Jesus Christ. He also lives in every Christian from the moment of salvation. He provides the Christian with power for living, understanding of spiritual truth, and guidance in doing what is right. He gives every believer a spiritual gift when they are saved. As Christians, we seek to live under His control daily.

2 Corinthians 3:17; John 16:7-13, 14:16,17; Acts 1:8;
1 Corinthians 2:12, 3:16; Ephesians 1:13; Galatians 5:25;
Ephesians 5:18


The Bible is God’s Word to us. It was written by human authors, under the supernatural guidance of the Holy Spirit. It is the supreme source of truth for Christian beliefs and living. Because it is inspired by God, it is the truth without any mixture of error.

2 Timothy 3:16; 2 Peter 1:20,21; 2 Timothy 1:13;
Psalm 119:105,160, 12:6; Proverbs 30:5


People are made in the spiritual image of God, to be like Him in character. People are the supreme object of God’s creation. Although every person has tremendous potential for good, all of us are marred by an attitude or nature of disobedience toward God called “sin”. This attitude separates people from God and causes many problems in life

Genesis 1:27; Psalm 8:3-6; Isaiah 53:6a; Romans 3:23; Isaiah 59:1, 2


Salvation is God’s free gift to us but we must accept it. We can never make up for our sin by self-improvement or good works. Only by trusting in Jesus Christ as God’s offer of forgiveness can anyone be saved from sin’s penalty. When we turn from our self-ruled life and turn to Jesus in faith we are saved. Eternal life begins the moment one receives Jesus Christ into his life by faith.

Romans 6:23; Ephesians 2:8,9; John 14:6, 1:12; Titus 3:5; Galatians 3:26; Romans 5:1


Because God gives us eternal life through Jesus Christ, the true believer is secure in that salvation for eternity. If you have been genuinely saved, you cannot “lose” it. Salvation is maintained by the grace and power of God, not by the self-effort of the Christian. It is the grace and keeping power of God that gives us this security.

John 10:29; 2 Timothy 1:12; Hebrews 7:25, 10:10,14; 1 Peter 1:3-5


People were created to exist forever. We will either exist eternally separated from God by sin, or eternally with God through forgiveness and salvation. To be eternally separated from God is Hell. To be eternally in union with Him is eternal life. Heaven and Hell are real places of eternal existence.

John 3:16; John 14:17; Romans 6:23; Romans 8:17-18;
Revelation 20:15; 1 Cor. 2:7-9


The church consists of those people who have responded to the gracious call of God to salvation through faith in the Lord Jesus Christ. It has two primary expressions: (1) The Universal Church, which consists of all those who, in every age and every place, have come to salvation through Christ, and (2) The Local Church, which consists of baptized believers who covenant together to carry out the purposes of worship, fellowship, discipleship, service, and evangelism / missions. The local church is an autonomous body, operating under the lordship of Jesus Christ.

Matthew 16:15-19; Acts 2:41-47; Romans 12:4-5; 1 Corinthians 1:2; Ephesians 1:22-23; 2:19-22; Colossians 1:18-20

Our church is affiliated to SBC and NAMB
