Vision & Values

New Hope is one church that meets in two locations. No matter which campus you attend, we're driven by the same vision of Strengthening Families By Reaching the Next Generation for Christ, and this is at the heart of everything we do.

We want to equip parents, coming alongside and investing in you, as you pour into your kids' lives pointing them to Jesus.


When you come to New Hope, expect to experience engaging worship and a message that speaks to you, regardless of where you're at in life. Come as you are, and together we’ll experience the incredible, life-changing grace and love of Jesus.

Join us on a Sunday morning (Effingham at 8:45 & 10:30am, Newton at 9:30am) and learn how you can take our vision on mission and make a difference in your community and around the world by reaching the next generation. Welcome to the family!


Our core values are the things we're committed to pursue together as a church. They are:


We will make worship a central part of our lives by regularly attending church services, developing personal spiritual practices that connect us to God, and committing to a life of integrity.


We are committed to community by pursuing unity as a church and growing through small groups, ministry teams, and spiritual friendships.


We will be servants and use our unique gifts to serve our church and community as a response to the grace and mercy we have received from God.


We will be generous with our time and resources by giving faithfully to the church and by meeting the needs of others.


We will take the message and love of Jesus to our community and to the world.
