Making disciples of Christ who make disciples by offering hope through the ministry of reconciliation to God and others.
Renewing the neighborhood, where the laughter of youth and families echoes the hope they experience.
"The Word became flesh and blood, and moved into the neighborhood."
John 1:14 (The Message).
This is a description of Jesus that we have embraced in the ministry at New Hope. When Jesus "moved into the neighborhood," He taught the truth of the Father and He touched the lives of many, but not just through His words. Jesus physically touched people. He healed lepers and cripples. He raised the dead and healed many from disease. He fed thousands of people and made wine for a wedding. He became part of the neighborhood. He knew the people next to Him by name, not because they came to Him, but because He went to them. We are called to be Ambassadors of Christ, spreading the good news of salvation not only to those who enter our doors, through worship and sermons, but also to those we are surrounded by in our neighborhood by mentoring, building and helping however we can.
