A church built on the foundation of our Savior, Jesus Christ, and on the absolute authority of the Bible



Welcome to New Hope!  Thanks for visiting our website.  We hope you visit our brick and mortar church as well to join us as we worship our awesome Savior, Jesus Christ, who offers new hope to everyone who trusts in Him!  New Hope Community Church exists to bring glory to Jesus in everything we do. It's all about Him! We desire to know Him intellectually, pursue Him relentlessly, approach Him reverently, love him intimately, follow Him unconditionally, worship Him passionately, stand up for Him unashamedly, serve Him excellently, and enjoy Him gladly. We invite you to join us on this journey.  Blessings to you!

      In His Service For His Glory,

                                    Pastor Frank

At New Hope, you won't find empty ritualism or emotional hype.  We offer sincere, heartfelt worship and messages designed to help you grow in your relationship with Jesus Christ and practically apply the Bible's timeless truths to everyday life. 

We go verse-by-verse studies of a book of the Bible. Currently, we are doing a verse-by-verse study in the Book of  Genesis.

Main Verse: 

"Sarah lived to be a hundred and twenty-seven years old. She died at Kiriath Arba (that is, Hebron) in the land of Canaan, and Abraham went to mourn for Sarah and to weep over her.

Sell me some property for a burial site here so I can bury my dead.'...Afterward Abraham buried his wife Sarah in the cave in the field of Machepelah near Mamre (which is at Hebron) in the land of Canaan."
