Pastor Kyu Kim reminds us of why Jesus cleared out the temple: to restore it to a house of prayer. Jesus cast out everything that exploited and hindered His people. We are reminded that from the beginning, HOPE church invests in each generation so that they may rise up to love God.
Pastor Kyu Kim presents the Christmas story and teaches how heaven needed to come to earth. Jesus came into the world to heal brokenness. The joyous announcement was not made to the elite but rather to the overlooked. This is how God chose to reveal Himself. This is God’s character.

Pastor Kyu Kim teaches how Jesus unveiled himself to show His true form in all its glory. God chose to put on our form that we may be able to relate and connect to Him and connect. In a life walking with Jesus we transform to become more like Him as a response. How amazing is the scandal of grace!

Pastor Kyu Kim asks "Are you good at complaining or are you good at giving thanks?" The cleansing of the lepers demonstrates how our good and gracious God gives blessings, but it is through giving thanks that we can grow our relationship with Him.
Pastor Kyu Kim teaches on the new kingdom message to follow Jesus. People naturally want blessing without the cost of commitment. Christ beckons us to fully surrender, listen, and obey in order to step into all God has for us. "New revelation demands people's response."
Pastor Kyu Kim focuses on Jesus’ question: “Who do you say that I am?" His disciples had preconceived notions of Jesus’ mission on earth and had difficulty trusting and accepting God's way. His glory, blessing, and power is revealed through suffering. Jesus prevailed on the cross and as His followers we trust that His way is best and embrace the sufferings we must face in our own walk.
Pastor Kyu Kim teaches how the Gospel of Mark emphasizes how Jesus walked on the water to come to the disciples. It is a powerful image of how God comes to us in the midst of our storm and beckons us to take action on our faith. We take action not based on our abilities but because God wants us to draw close in the midst of our proverbial storms. "Faith is taking us to where God is and what He does."
