Reformed Hope is committed to the victory of the gospel, Christian reconstruction, and a biblical approach to civics, economics, and history. Jesus Christ is king over every sphere of life, not just the church. Every sphere of life (individual, family, church, and state) is being brought under the lordship of Christ. The statesman is required to submit to Jesus Christ just as much as the butcher, the baker, and the candlestick maker. As James Henry Thornwell said, “Every legislator is bound to be a Christian.”

Why the name Reformed Hope? Dr. Richard Pratt put it best when he wrote:
We believe that the Lordship of Christ extends to all areas of life. Christ is Lord not only of the church; He is supreme over the family, the arts and sciences, and human society at large. For this reason, we do not withdraw from the world…As the Gospel spreads, believers are to transform their cultures to the honor and glory of God…We are to fill the earth, every aspect of the earth, with the knowledge of God our creator and redeemer, and thus fulfill the mandate given to Adam and Eve so long ago.
