the Vision of NHU

The Vision of New Hope United flows from our understanding of why the Church exists.  While the Church does many things, there are four big reasons why we’re here: 

  • The Church exists to join God in His mission of rescuing the world from sin and death.  We join in God’s mission by sharing the gospel message.  Gospel means “good news”.  Our Vision is to share the good news of what Jesus has done, is doing, and will do with all those around us through our words and actions. 

  • The Church exists to worship God.  God is the one who created and redeemed us.  He is the only one worthy of our praise, adoration, glory and honor.  Our Vision is to engage in passionate worship, not only in our weekly worship services, but especially in the way we live our lives at home, work, school, and play. 

  • The Church exists to disciple believers.  Discipleship is the process of following Jesus, and in following Him, becoming like Him.  Our Vision is to see every person become a lifelong follower of Jesus, using their gifts and talents to serve God and people.    

  • The Church exists to love people.  We show love to people through kindness, generosity, patience, gentleness, practical care, and support.  Our Vision is to put love into action in every relationship in our lives.    

As a member congregation of the General Conference of the Church of God (Seventh Day) we’re committed to transforming the Vision of a Vibrant 21st Century Church into reality.  Check out the Vision statement here.
