     Thank you for visiting our website! We are New Hope Presbyterian Church, a congregation of the Presbyterian Church in America. We seek to provide a warm and inviting atmosphere where together, we can worship our God, learn about Him and His grace, and grow in our faith.
    We also earnestly desire to make ourselves available to serve you in any way we can. Our Savior said, "I have not come to be served, but to serve, and to give My life a ransom for many" (Mark 10:45). In the spirit of our Savior we, too, want to serve Him by serving you.
     First, we want our church to be a place where people find God, and are found by Him, and experience His awesome presence and power in worship. It's our greatest desire to ignite a passion for Him in the hearts and lives of those who worship with us. As we discover God together in the Best News of the Gospel we experience His presence in public worship and expect to be changed (Daniel 11:32 - the people who know their God will stand firm and take action" - ESV).
     Second, we want our church to be a place where people experience the love of Christ and learn to love people. God wants us to find healing, rest and peace in Him so that our own lives will be characterized by His gentleness and compassion.
     Third, we want our church to be a place where people enjoy a rich fellowship with each other, like a family. God sent His Spirit into the Church to enable us to work together to make God and His love in Christ known locally in the Triple Cities and beyond to the whole world.

""If we forget that we are forgiven by God because of His Son's sacrifice, we will see ourselves as slaves trying to earn His goodwill and make up for past miscues rather than [live] as forgiven children." Elyse Fitzpatrick

To Be a Missions Minded Church

C.S Lewis says,
When I have learnt to love God better than my dearest, I shall love my earthly dearest better than I do now.  In so far as I learn to love my earthly dearest at the expense of God and instead of God, I shall be moving towards the state in which I shall not love my earthly dearest at all.  When first things are put first, second things are not suppressed but increased!"  (Letters of Lewis, p. 248)
