Our vision at New Hope is to help people fall in love with Jesus, and live like Him.

We are a community of people that does the stuff Jesus did: Love God, Love People, and See Revival. We do this by doing four things well:

Our Mission

Worship & Arts

Our vision is to cultivate excellent worship music and art that honors and celebrates God, as we cultivate a resting place for His presence and power in our church and lives.

Next Generation Ministries

Encounter God, Equip, and Activate. We have programs for ages 0-18.


We have small groups, classes, and mentorship available for people of all ages. We aim to serve people in the love of Jesus, helping equip and empower them to serve and love others.


We aim to have messages that challenge and encourage you as well as equip you with resources to walk in love, and declare the good news of His coming.

We want to see His love change the world through us. Come be a part of it.
