The heart and soul of New Hope Church is to introduce and connect people with the one true living God and help them grow in their relationship with Him. We are a redemptive community of regular people living generously in the context of our world.
When people experience the presence of a living, loving God, something significant always happens. When we read the Bible, we love the fact that people who were so unlike Jesus, loved to hang out with Him. And more incredibly, Jesus loved to hang out with them. Things still haven’t changed. We’re all on that journey, and church should be a place where you can connect with God and find relationships with people that will walk with you and encourage you on that journey.
So what are you doing this weekend? Stop on by New Hope Church, we’d love to see you. When you’re here you’ll experience a relaxed environment where you can connect with God, have some good coffee, meet some great people, and feel free to leave without any judgment if you’re not ready just yet and change your mind.
So what are some of the building blocks for our church?
Presence: God’s presence isn’t just a feeling we experience in worship or when a miracle takes place, but an abiding sense of God’s involvement in our lives and the life of our church. John 15 tells us that God is the vine and we’re the branches. The flow of His life and presence in our lives results in great fruit. The presence of God is a distinguishing mark on the life of every Christ follower; it’s about the life of God that marks our lives with faith, love, hope, peace, and joy.
Relationships: God never created us to do life alone. We believe in doing life together – we are a unified, loving community of people accomplishing God’s purposes and growing together.
People: If people matter to God, they matter to us. God came and hung out with people who were far away from Him. His life and message helped explain God. It made sense to a whole lot of people. Our desire is that each one of our lives would reflect the same value.
Growth: Our goal is that we all become fully devoted followers of Christ. That means committing to the principles and practices of Christian living outlined in Scripture and using our gifts, talents, and abilities to honor God and extend His Kingdom here on earth.
Stewardship: Before we experienced God’s grace, our lives were consumed with ourselves and our desires. Now as devoted followers of Christ, God desires that we are consumed with His purposes and use our time, talents, and resources to generously serve Him and others.
Generations: We’re committed to providing effective ministry to take the reality of God to our children, students, young adults, singles of all ages, and families. We’re committed to building a dynamic children’s ministry, and relevant youth and young adult ministries.
Missions: As fully devoted followers of Christ; missions in our community and around our world, isn’t just something we do, it is who we are…it is a lifestyle.
