 Our Purpose

We are committed to growing fully devoted followers of Jesus Christ! 

We consider reaching people who do not know God personally one of our greatest responsibilities.

Our Mission

We believe in community transformation through the love and power of Jesus Christ, and believe God has always had it in His heart to take people on a spiritual journey:

  1. To Know God
  2. Find Freedom
  3. Discover Purpose
  4. Make a Difference

We believe this journey will lead every person to LOVE God and one another, cause them to GROW and THRIVE in their relationship with Christ!

Our Process

New Hope’s process is comprised of four simple steps that equip you to:

1.      Follow Jesus – this step explains the spiritual journey God has for each of us!

2.      Connect with other believers through the local church.

3.      Discover your God-given gifts and purpose.

 Learn to use those gifts to make a difference by serving others.

Our Core Beliefs

At New Hope our emphasis is Jesus Christ and His love.  Our basis of fellowship is Christ alone.

Our mission is to be an extension of the ministry of Jesus Christ – to bring identity and destiny to every individual.  Identity, in that we can only begin to know who we are as we know who Christ is. Destiny, in that there is divine purpose to be discovered as we pursue the promises of God’s Word. 

 New Hope recognizes the unity of the Body of Christ, the Church being the sum of those who have been born again by faith.  Therefore, we are interdenominational in spirit while being in fellowship with the Church of God, Cleveland, TN.

 STATEMENT OF FAITH

  • We believe in the Bible as God’s only inspired, inerrant and authoritative revelation of Himself to man in written form (2 Timothy 3:16,17).
  • We believe in one God, eternally existing in three persons: God the Father, God the Son and God the Holy Spirit (1 John 5:7).
  • We believe in the deity of the Lord Jesus Christ (John 1:1), His virgin birth (Matt 1:18), His sinless life (2 Corinthians 5:21), His miracles (Acts 10:38), His vicarious death as the only sacrifice for the sin of the world (1 John 2:2), His bodily resurrection from the dead (Luke 24:39), His ascension to the right hand of God as our intercessor (Hebrews 4:14), and His future return in glory, first to rapture His church (1 Thessalonians 4:16-18) and second, to establish the kingdom of God upon the earth (Revelation 20:6).
  • We believe in the finality of Christ’s mediatorial work for the redemption of humanity and the present freedom of access to the Father (1 Timothy 2:5; Hebrews 7:25).
  • We believe in the new birth as the only means of receiving eternal life. The new birth involves a cleansing and deliverance from the penalty and power of sin. It is effectuated through faith in Jesus Christ and repentance from sin (John 3:3,5,7; Ephesians 2:8,9; 1 Peter 1:18-20).
  • We believe in divine healing for the total man, spirit, mind and body and that this healing is accomplished in the redemptive work of Christ on the cross and appropriated in the believer’s life through prayer (Isaiah 53:5; Matthew 8:17; 1 Peter 2:24; James 5:13-15).
  • We believe in the baptism in the Holy Spirit as an enduement of power for all believers (Acts 2:4,38-39; 10:44-46; 19:1-6; Ephesians 5:18). This baptism results in a deeper expression of spiritual fruit (Galatians 5:22,23), a greater growth in Christ-likeness (2 Corinthians 3:18), a genuine manifestation of spiritual gifts (1 Corinthians 12:1-11), and a more effective prayer life (Romans 8:26, 27).
  • We believe in the process of spiritual development (sanctification) wrought in the believer’s life by the Holy Spirit. The growth involves daily dying to sin and living unto righteousness (Romans 6:1-23), finds expression in a holy life (Hebrews 12:24) and will be culminated at the return of Christ (1 John 3:2).
  • We believe in the resurrection from the dead. First, the righteous unto eternal life and second, the ungodly unto eternal damnation (Daniel 12:2; John 5:28,29; Revelation 20:4-6, 11-15).
  • We believe in the sacraments of the church established by Jesus Christ our Lord; the Lord’s Supper (Matthew 26:26-30; 1 Corinthians 11:23-26) and baptism by immersion as a symbol and witness of the new birth (Matthew 28:19; 1 Peter 3:20-22).
