This Week's Sermon

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

We do a verse by verse studies of a book of the bible and presently are going to be doing YouTube messages until we all can meet again. We will return to the book of Acts after Easter.  Please listen to this most recent sermon below:

April 5th Message is our Palm Sunday message and is from the book of John 12. The message is entitled "The Different Responses People Had To Jesus Entering Into Jerusalem On The First Palm Sunday."

The following are scripture references that were used in the sermon:

Luke 19:41

Psalm 118: 25-26

Psalm 113-118

Zechariah 9:9

Luke 19:36-38

Luke 9:23

Luke 14:33

John 8:58

John 10:30

John 1:1

Genesis 1:1

Colossians 1:15-16

Colossians 2:9

Hebrews 1:3

Philippians 3:7-10

Philippians 1:20-21


1) If Jesus were to come today in Lodi or your town wherever you are, what would your response be?

2) Would you recognize him as who he is - the Messiah?

3) What would your reaction to Him be? Would it be the Jell-O mold Messiah - the one that you have created in your own mind on how you want Him to be? 

4) Would your understanding be shallow and not quite really know who He was - hey there is a guy and he has a need and just move on?

5) Would your response be "what can he do now for me - Ohh I have this need?"

6) Would you reject Him outright or would you embrace Him?

7) Would you be hungry and thirsty and give up everything that you have to follow Him? Would you want to know Him deeper and deeper and develop a deep intimate relationship with Him?
