Our Mission is to be disciples making disciples. This mission is a restating of the great commission that Jesus gave to all of His disciples in Matt 28:16-20. Our goal is to lead people to become fully devoted followers of Jesus Christ.
We are seeking to accomplish this mission in three ways (the 3 E's).
Engaging the lost
God wants to reconcile (save) the world (those who are lost) to Himself. One of the beautiful parts of the message of reconciliation is that He entrusts us with sharing with those who are far from God. (2 Corinthians 5:19)
Equipping the church
The church (the people not the building) are ambassadors for Jesus. At New Hope we want to make sure that everyone is equipped with what they need to be faithful ambassadors. We never stop being equipped. We never stop learning. We never stop being disciples of Jesus. (2 Corinthians 5:20)
Encouraging the hurting
What an encouragement to know that Jesus took care of the very thing we were powerless to overcome on our own. Many people today have a very low view of themselves. The Gospel tells us that God is crazy about us! Not some future version of us…but who we are right now. New Hope will be a church that encourages those who are hurting with the truth of this loving message. (2 Corinthians 5:21)
We believe that the Bible is the perfect word of God. We submit wholeheartedly to the authority of the Bible. We will present God's Word with grace and truth. (John 1:14)
We seek to produce excellence in everything we do. This has a two-fold purpose: to honor God and to inspire people. We want to eliminate distractions and create environments where people can connect to Jesus. (Colossians 3:17, Malachi 1:6-14)
From the first day New Hope launched as a church we have had strategic partners who are doing ministry in our community and around the world. We embrace opportunities to support ministries and missionaries who glorify God and lead people to Jesus (Matthew 28:16-20). We generously give of our time, talents, and resources to help fulfill the mission that God has for New Hope. (2Corinthians 9:6-8)
We believe that people were created to be in relationships with one another. We value connecting all people to God and one another for the purpose of glorifying God and transforming lives. (Acts 2:44-47, Luke 6:12-13) We strive to maintain unity in all essential areas while gracefully loving one another when we differ on the non-essentials. (Ephesians 4:4-6)
