Our Desire is to Love God
New Hope began in 1999 with the strong desire to love God and love each other. It was the encouragement and fellowship that we all craved. We wanted to be a church that lived out teachings of Jesus Christ. We wanted to be a church that provided hope. We wanted to become a church that was accepting, friendly, and non-judgmental; building up people and not tearing them down.
Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ
New Hope began with this theme verse of Scripture… "Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ. In His great mercy He has given us new birth into a living hope through the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead and into an inheritance that can never perish, spoil, or fade, kept in heaven for you" (1Peter 1:3-4).
Jesus Christ is Lord
We want to communicate clearly that New Hope Christian Fellowship is a church where Jesus Christ is Lord! And where we are family! Our mission at New Hope is to be conformed to Jesus’ image, and by the power of the Holy Spirit to be a reflection of His love.
We exist to worship God
We exist to worship God, study and teach His Word, bringing people into a relationship with Jesus. Our express purpose is to give God glory by preaching Christ and Him crucified, and by pointing people to our Risen Lord that they may receive the gift of grace through their faith in Him.
Growing in God's Wisdom
Our vision is to grow…grow in numbers, wisdom and maturity – not merely to feed people but to advance them to a place of fullness where they in turn can be about God’s business…ministry and caring for others.
What you see is what you get
We desire to be a church of authenticity. "What you see is what you get." We have been wounded by the world, forgiven by God, transformed by His Spirit, and loved by His people. It is a very good place to be. No masks, no weird agendas. Just real people – PASSIONATELY LOVING GOD & GENUINELY LOVING PEOPLE.
