At New Hope, this means having an abundance of generosity toward others. It means that we aren’t here to judge anyone — no matter where you come from or what your past or present looks like. We will accept you because Jesus has done the same for us. We see the church as a place for those who are spiritually ill, and it’s our goal to see you living a healthy, whole life that brings honor to God...and extends God’s grace to others.
We are committed to honoring God through joyful expressions in our worship services. We hear and experience the power of God’s presence through music, relevant Bible messages and the creativity of art.
We understand that everyone is not at the same place or going at the same pace in his or her experience with God. We seek to provide opportunities for spiritual growth in your personal relationship with Jesus through prayer and reading and studying the Bible and by continuing to commit to Jesus, to growing in Him and to serving in ministry.
We have a variety of Saturday morning classes as well as small groups that meet during the week to give you places to interact and grow spiritually, share challenges and discover principles that lead to a deeper understanding of God and His plan for your life.
We understand that culture changes, so we have to change — our methods, not the message —to reach people for Jesus. We are committed to sharing the gospel in a way everyone will be able to understand. We are committed to making our music, preaching, language and outreach relevant to our area. Because we’re serious about our commitment to reach our community, we will do and try anything and everything to help people get to know, fall in love with and follow Jesus.
We consider it our privilege and mission to offer our time, energy and abilities to serve in our community and in the world. We embrace everyone as brothers and sisters in Jesus and strive to extend unconditional kindness and service to people in need. Through various ministries that serve the local community, we try to connect with and help people because they are children of God.
We’re committed to supporting and nurturing children and equipping families to make lifelong decisions for God. Kids are the most impressionable people in our community; nearly half of Americans who decide to follow Jesus do so before age 13. As a result, we put our children at the forefront of what we do as a church community.
We believe the good news of Jesus is the best news for our world. It’s our mission to reach out to those who don’t have a relationship with Him and share the hope that we’ve discovered. We’re serious in embracing Jesus’ great commission and in being personally relevant to our community as we seek opportunities to invite others to fully connect with Him and with us. We take Jesus’ words “as you are going” to heart and are committed to going out into the community before asking the community to come to us.
