New Hope's Mission

Our mission: To make more and fully devoted followers of Jesus Christ. 

“Then the eleven disciples went to Galilee, to the mountain where Jesus had told them to go. When they saw him, they worshiped him; but some doubted. Then Jesus came to them and said, “All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age.” (Matthew 28:16-20, NIV)

Notice that this is our mission: This is not only the mission of the leadership, but is to be the shared mission of every member. 

This is our mission: The Church is not static or aimless; if you are a Christian, you have the privilege and responsibility to engage in the mission of the Church. You are to be on mission in your church, family, workplace, and neighborhood.

Our mission involves making more followers of Jesus Christ: We work and pray towards the goal that God will bring others into His family and kingdom through us as we follow Jesus in the power of the Holy Spirit. Our aim is that people who don't yet know Jesus as Savior and King will turn from their own way to Him and find new life and purpose in belonging to and following Him. You are to live as active representatives of Jesus among those who don't yet know Him. 

Our mission involves making more fully devoted followers of Jesus Christ: Becoming a Christian is just the beginning; our whole life should be one of maturation, greater enjoyment of God, and growth in effectiveness in engaging in His work in the world. We each have a part in each others' lives, as God works through us to grow each other. 

Our mission is to make more and fully devoted followers of Jesus Christ: The aim of our lives must be to know Jesus. Apart from believing in and following Him, every success in life will ultimately fade away, every gain will be lost, every relationship fall apart, every pleasure will disappear. He is our Savior and sovereign, and knowing Him is our aim. (See Philippians 3:7-14)
