It is our belief that the preaching of the Word of God is a vital component of Christian worship. New Hope preaching is exegetical in nature, meaning that each sermon will be tied to a specific biblical text. Preaching series will vary in content from expositional studies of individual books in the bible, to topical series that will jump around the biblical narrative from week to week.
It’s strongly encouraged that congregants spend time in the passage for the coming Sunday in their devotional time during the preceding week.
Have you ever wondered whether you belong to God? Have you ever wondered if you matter to Him? About 2,000 years ago, the Apostle Paul wrote a letter that was addressed “to the churches in Galatia.” There is no delicate way of putting this: it’s an angry, passionate letter. Evidently, there had been some in the church who had been making recent converts to the faith uneasy, telling them that unless they play by their rules, they wouldn’t ever truly belong to God.
Paul writes this letter to put things straight. He makes it quite clear that the good news to all people is that Jesus is calling all of us into one family.
