New Hope Welcoming Statement in alignment with Reconciling Ministries Network, Partnering Congregation.
We are a loving, vibrant, diverse congregation that recognizes and embraces all of God’s children regardless of age, race or ethnicity, sexual orientation, gender identity and expression, physical and mental abilities, marital or economic status, dedicated to answering the call of a love God. As we respond to God’s inclusive loving invitation, our faith comes alive, our lives are transformed and we find purpose and peace. We welcome all into full participation in the ministry and mission of our church.
Our Mission is to make disciples of Jesus Christ for the transformation of the world. “Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything that I have commanded you. And remember, I am with you always, to the end of the age.”
Our Prayer: May all of God’s children know the love of God, the fellowship of the body of Christ, and the inspiration of the Holy Spirit even as the church struggles to offer these to all God’s people.
