Who We Are

New Hope exists to honor and glorify God by obeying Jesus' command to make disciples of all people groups (See Matthew 28:18-20).

We accomplish this through our Mission and Core Values.

Our Mission:

  • Teaching believers through the Bible how to love God and love their neighbors as themselves (Col. 1:28; Matthew 22:37-40)
  • Sending those believers back out into the world to share with others the story of how Jesus saved them (Rom. 10:13-15; Acts 1:8)
