A Little About Us
New Hope Christian Ministries was founded back in November of 2008. Ever since then, we have done our best to spread the living message of Christ to a dying world. We operate by our core truths to accomplish the vision that we believe God has called us to. We are a community that loves Jesus, loves people, and loves serving!
New Hope is a non-denominational church but is not opposed to denominations as such, only their over-emphasis of the doctrinal differences that have led to the division of the Body of Christ.
Worship of God should be intelligent. Therefore, our services are designed with great emphasis upon the teaching of the Word of God that He might instruct us how He should be worshipped.
In one personal, transcendent, and holy God, the creator of all, who is eternal, and who manifests Himself in three separate persons: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.
That Jesus Christ, though fully God, became a man for the suffering of death, that He is the promised Messiah, born of a virgin, lived a sinless life, provided for the atonement of our sins by His vicarious death on the Cross, was bodily resurrected by the power of the Holy Spirit, ascended back to the right hand of God the Father, and ever lives to make intercession for us. After Jesus ascended to Heaven, He poured out His Holy Spirit on the believers in Jerusalem, enabling them to fulfill His command to preach the Gospel to the entire world, an obligation shared by all believers today.
Worship of God should be fruitful. Therefore, we look for His love in our lives as the supreme manifestation that we have been truly worshiping Him.
In the inerrancy of Scripture, that the Bible, Old, and New Testaments, in the original autographs, is the inspired, infallible, inerrant Word of God, a complete and final written revelation of God.
The only true basis of Christian fellowship is Christ’s (agape) love, which is greater than any difference we possess, and without which we have no right to claim ourselves Christians.
Worship of God should be spiritual. Therefore, we remain flexible and yielded to the leading of the Holy Spirit to direct our worship.
Worship of God should be inspirational. Therefore, we give a great place to music in our worship.
That all people are by nature separated from God and responsible for their own sin, but that salvation, redemption, and forgiveness are freely offered to all by the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ. When a person repents of sin and accepts Jesus Christ as personal Savior and Lord, trusting Him to save, that person is immediately born again and sealed by the Holy Spirit, all his/her sins are forgiven, and that person becomes a child of God.
Jesus Christ is the head of the Body, His church, and that church government should be simplistic rather than a complex bureaucracy.
In the person and work of the Holy Spirit who indwells, seals, and empowers every believer, baptizing them into the Body of Christ. We further believe that the Holy Spirit will come upon any believer who asks in faith, enabling him/her to preach the Gospel in power. We also believe all of the gifts of the Holy Spirit mentioned in the Scriptures are valid for today if they are exercised within the scriptural guidelines. We believe that love is more important than all the gifts, and without this love all exercise of spiritual gifts is worthless.

What should I wear?
We want you to feel comfortable while at the same time applying a Biblical form of modesty and decency. It's common to see people dressed in anything from jeans and a T-Shirt to a full suit. If you're at a loss, business casual never goes wrong. After all, we believed that focusing on worship and learning is more important than your attire.
Where should I park?
We are located in an industrial park so there is usually plenty of parking on-site every Sunday.
Where do my children go?
Children are our future and so we do our best to offer the gospel to them at their level! We have childcare for children ages 2-5 (Sparrows) and Sunday School for older children. Kids aged 6-9 are known as the Doves and those 10-14 are known Eagles! Each group has their own classroom where a teacher awaits them with love and knowledge. For children under the age of 2, we have a nursery open to mothers and their babies. It features tinted glass so you can be engaged in with the service while enclosed in a private room with your small one.
Childcare is optional, so if you'd like to have them by your side in the sanctuary, then, by all means, worship away!
Questions, comments, and concerns can be sent here! We'll do our best to get back to you as soon as possible!
