Who We Are

Welcome to New Hope Baptist Church!

Are you a visitor?  We would be honored to have you as a guest at our church.

Our Sunday morning service begins at 11:00 am and our Wednesday evening service begins at 6:30 pm.

You Will Find

Genuine and Sincere People

Politics are for Washington, DC.  New Hope is about being real.  It is all about families serving our real and awesome God.  Real people with real answers is what you will find in God’s people who are guided by God’s Word.

Biblical Preaching

The Bible, led by God’s Spirit is our guide.  It is our goal to bring the Biblical teachings to every day life.   The Bible is the most relevant Word ever written.

Meaningful Worship

The full range of worship expression from the old hymns to the contemporary worship choruses;   whatever talent God has given you is to be stirred up and used to bring Him glory.

The body of believers at New Hope are saved sinners; nothing more, nothing less.   Self-righteousness should only characterize the world and not the church.  Any real believer knows that righteousness of the self is neither biblical, nor possible.  The Bible tells us in 1 Corinthians 3:18, Let no one deceive himself. If anyone among you seems to be wise in this age, let him become a fool that he may become wise.   Salvation is the gift of God, not the works of man lest he should boast, to people who do not deserve it and know that they do not deserve it.  Hopefully you will find our fellowship to be both down to earth as well as the salt of the earth.  Transparently human, there is nevertheless  that gift within us which reflects the glory of God, shining His Light to attract others who know they are also hopeless and helpless without Him.

We also believe that the answers to lifes questions are found in God who created life in the first place.  We believe that we get to know God through His indwelling Holy Spirit as He reveals His character through His Word.   As God spoke from the beginning to create life, He continues to speak through His written Word to create and sustain spiritual life.   Just as a baby is dependent on the food of this world for physical life and health, so the born-again believer must feed on the spiritual food of His Word for spiritual life and health.  The psalmist reminds us How sweet are thy words unto my taste  You can expect biblical preaching and teaching with the full expectation that our answers are found in God and not in man.

Our church name, New Hope was derived from early settlers in our community who wanted to bring into the challenges of their generation Gods hope which is both real and constantly refreshing.  Every new day our great God brings into our lives a reason for joy and peace by giving us renewed hope.  He alone sits on the throne and draws to Himself the poor, the brokenhearted, the captive, the blind, and the bruised and gives them real hope through His Son.  You can expect to see the positive nature of our God in the life of New Hope.  In our fellowship are sinners saved by the grace of God, feeding on the Word of God, with hope based on the constant presence of God.    If God is drawing you to Himself through His body at New Hope Baptist Church, it is our prayer that you would find our doors opened for you and your family.

Common Questions

What should I wear?
Dress code for New Hope ranges from casual to dresses and suits.  Sunday morning attire shifts towards dresses and slacks or suits, however many members dress semi-casual as well.  Sunday evening and Wednesday evening are more casual and comfortable attire.
Where do my children go?
The children’s education building is directly behind the sanctuary.  Under the leadership of our Children’s Minister, Laura Beth Plumlee, our teachers reach out to the children with Gods Word and Gods love.  Our Nursery Coordinator, Jennifer Fry, assures the safety and healthy atmosphere for our babies.   We believe Christian education begins very early in the child’s life as it is both spoken and lived by the teachers.
Can I meet the pastor?
Yes.  The pastor is happy to meet anyone visiting the church.  You can find him in his office before the services, or at the front door of the sanctuary after the services.  His cell phone is advertised in the bulletin, or you can schedule an appointment.
How do I get to know other people?
The key to meeting new people at New Hope is to get involved.  We offer  many options for you and your family including Sunday school classes, home groups, church-wide events, children and youth activities and Bible studies.
