About

Our Story

We are a people committed to loving God, loving others and serving those around us with the good news of Jesus Christ. Our church began in June 2013 as a church plant from New Hope Community Church in Traverse City, MI. Throughout the years we have seen God’s blessings over and over in taking the messes of our lives and transforming them into miracles for his glory. At New Hope you will experience friendly people and hear biblical preaching with a focus on the Good News of Jesus Christ, along with engaging worship that seeks to glorify God and encourage the Body of Christ.

Our Vision

Our vision is to develop fully devoted followers of Jesus Christ who fulfill the Great Commandment and the Great Commission. We seek to fulfill this as we love God, love others and serve our world with the love of Christ and the good news of the gospel.

Our Beliefs

We believe in one God - Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.

We believe in God the Father Almighty, Creator of all things visible and invisible.

We believe in Jesus Christ, the Son of God, the eternal Word, the one and only Savior.

Who was conceived by the Holy Spirit and born of the Virgin Mary, both fully human and fully divine; Who lived a sinless life; Who suffered and was crucified as an atonement for sin; Who rose again bodily from the dead on the third day; Who ascended into Heaven; and Who will return in victory to rule forever.

We believe in the Holy Spirit.

Who convicts of sin;
Who indwells every Christian;
Who helps us in our weakness and intercedes for us in prayer;
Who empowers us to a fruitful Christian life.

We believe in the Bible - God's Holy Word, Scripture.

We believe God inspired the original writings of the Scripture and those original writings were consequently without error.
We believe that the Bible is the final authority for all matters of faith, truth, morality, and Christian living.
We believe the Bible teaches that God is the Creator and Sustainer of human life; that God creates each person in His image; and that life is, therefore, sacred, from conception to natural death.

We believe in salvation by grace through faith in Jesus Christ alone.

We believe in the Gospel - the Good News of Salvation.
That man, created by God, willfully sinned against God and is consequently lost and without hope apart from Jesus Christ.
That salvation - the forgiveness of sins - is only by grace through the blood of Jesus Christ.
That one receives salvation by putting faith in Christ, repenting of sin, and confessing Christ as Lord.
That those who have received salvation through faith in Jesus Christ are sent into the world to proclaim the gospel and love and serve the world just as Jesus Himself did.
