There is a non-denominational in the Hope community that follows the teachings of the New Testament, meeting in homes as the Christians did in those days. In the Hope area two homes, those of Everett Burchill and Gus Swenson, are used to meet in each Sunday morning.

This gospel is brought by a non-paid ministry, dating back to New Testament times. It was first introduced in North Dakota at the turn of the century by traveling ministers, coming in from other states and countries.

Annual meetings are held in three places in North Dakota at which all groups or churches are free to attend. Ministers from various places conduct the services.

In spite of having no organization, it still continues the same - a worldwide fellowship - from generation to generation.
