A note from Pastor Dave

Dear Friends in Christ,

Welcome to New Hope Church! We want to thank you for your recent visit to New Hope Church. We pray that you were encouraged in worshiping our Lord and Savior and that you found warm fellowship. It is also our desire that you were well fed for the tasks you face. We know there are choices for churches, but we are glad you desired to worship with us.

New Hope Church is a church for all ages. We have a nursery available during the worship service, Children's Church, Sunday School, Wednesday night high school discipleship group, youth group on Sunday evening, Bible studies, small groups, and opportunities for fellowship and service. Our service is casual, our music is passionate and relevant and our teaching is firmly rooted in the Word of God.

It is our desire not only to see people grow in their faith, but also find ways to make it a part of everyday life. We pray that you will find New Hope Church a place where you can get connected and also plug into serving.

We realize that choosing a church can be time consuming and even difficult work. If there are any questions you may have or if you would like to talk or meet, please let us know. We would be glad to spend the time. May God bless you and we pray that we would see you again soon.

Warmly in Christ,

Dave Williams

Vision Statement

Vision Statement

"We envision those who call New Hope Church their church home will grow in spiritual maturity through corporate worship and in small groups in order to personally live out their faith and demonstrate the gospel to our neighbor. We envision cultivating healthy individuals, marriages, and families so all may flourish (blossom) in their God-given roles."

Statement of Faith


1. God

We believe in one God, Creator of all things, holy, infinitely perfect, and eternally existing in a loving unity of three equally divine Persons: the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit. Having limitless knowledge and sovereign power, God has graciously purposed from eternity to redeem a people for Himself and to make all things new for His own glory.

2. The Bible

We believe that God has spoken in the Scriptures, both Old and New Testaments, through the words of human authors. As the verbally inspired Word of God, the Bible is without error in the original writings, the complete revelation of His will for salvation, and the ultimate authority to judge every realm of human knowledge and endeavor. Therefore, it is to be believed in all that it teaches, obeyed in all that it requires, and trusted in all that it promises.

3. The Human Condition

We believe that God created Adam and Eve in His image, but they sinned when tempted by Satan. In union with Adam, human beings are sinners by nature and by choice, alienated from God, and under His wrath. Only through God's saving work in Jesus Christ can we be rescued, reconciled and renewed.

4. Jesus Christ

We believe that Jesus Christ is God incarnate, fully God and fully man, one Person in two natures. Jesus--Israel's promised Messiah--was conceived through the Holy Spirit and born of the Virgin Mary. He lived a sinless life, was crucified under Pontius Pilate, arose bodily from the dead, ascended into heaven, and sits at the right hand of God the Father as our High Priest and Advocate.

5. The Work of Christ

We believe that Jesus Christ, as our representative and substitute, shed His blood on the cross as the perfect, all-sufficient sacrifice for our sins. His atoning death and victorious resurrection constitute the only basis for salvation.

6. The Holy Spirit

We believe that the Holy Spirit, in all that He does, glorifies the Lord Jesus Christ. He convicts the world of its guilt. He regenerates sinners, and in Him they are baptized into union with Christ and adopted as heirs in the family of God. He also indwells, illuminates, guides, equips and empowers believers for Christ-like living and service.

7. The Church

We believe that the true church comprises all who have been justified by God's grace through faith in Christ alone. The church is united by the Holy Spirit in the body of Christ, of which He is the Head. The true church is manifest in local churches, whose membership should be composed only of believers. The Lord Jesus mandated two ordinances--baptism and the Lord's Supper--which visibly and tangibly express the gospel. Though they are not the means of salvation, when celebrated by the church in genuine faith, these ordinances confirm and nourish the believer.

8. Christian Living

We believe that God's justifying grace must not be separated from His sanctifying power and purpose. God commands us to love Him supremely, and others sacrificially, and to live out our faith with care for one another, compassion toward the poor, and justice for the oppressed. With God's Word, the Spirit's power, and fervent prayer in Christ's name, we are to combat the spiritual forces of evil. In obedience to Christ's commission, we are to make disciples among all people, always bearing witness to the gospel in word and deed.

9. Christ's Return

We believe in the personal, bodily and glorious return of our Lord Jesus Christ. The coming of Christ, at a time known only to God, demands constant expectancy and, as our blessed hope, motivates the believer to godly living, sacrificial service and energetic mission.

10. Response and Eternal Destiny

We believe that God commands everyone everywhere to believe the gospel by turning to Him in repentance and receiving the Lord Jesus Christ. We believe that God will raise the dead bodily and judge the world, assigning the unbeliever to condemnation and eternal conscious punishment, and the believer to eternal blessedness and joy with the Lord in the new heaven and the new earth, to the praise of His glorious grace. Amen.
