• A Place To Receive Help...
  • Find Hope...And Call Home

We are a group of people with a passion to reach the people of Washington, Daviess county and the world with news that a full and abundant life can be found in knowing and following Jesus. We include people from all walks of life as we seek to live out the commands of Jesus in a loving and caring community.  Our desire is to bring "new hope" to those who have lost hope.

Our Leadership Team

If you wonder what the staff are like at New Hope,  just tell them it's time to update our website pictures and this is the result.  We are a group of individuals who are passionate about following Jesus and want more than anything to convince you to follow Him too.  Though we each lead in a specified area of ministry, we also know the value of team work and we practice it on a daily basis.  We also happen to like each other.  We work hard to make sure no one misses the grace of God.  If you have any questions we can answer or just need someone to pray with you, feel free to contact us...

Jesus Christ is the only begotten Son of God who died for our sins and arose from the dead.
I Corinthians 15:1-8; John 3:16

The Bible is the inspired Word of God — “a lamp to our feet and a light to our path.” 
Psalm 119:105; II Timothy 3:16

God created every person and sees them as valuable, even though “all have sinned and fallen short of the glory of God.”
Romans 3:23

Those who believe in and choose to follow Jesus are to repent of their sin, confess their faith and be baptized. 
Acts 2:38; Romans 10:9

The Church is the body of Christ on earth and exists to seek those who are spiritually lost and equip the saved.          
Ephesians 4:1-16

Jesus Christ will come again to judge the living and the dead, and to reign forever as King of Kings and Lord of Lords.
