There is a place for everyone at New Hope! The worship services are scheduled for 8:30 A.M. and 10:55 A.M. The reverent atmospheres in both services, though different, seek to honor the majesty and holiness of God. Every worshipper is encouraged to participate!
The early service is called Celebration…in a casual style; the service is filled with contemporary, praise music. The 10:55 A.M. service is more traditional; in a familiar style, the music is congregational hymns and choral anthems. Both services feature Bible-based sermons that call for a faith response of Christian discipleship. Bible study groups convene at 9:45 A.M. for preschoolers, children, youth, and adults. A nursery is provided for infants during both worship services and Sunday School.
We are conveniently located near Capital Blvd in North Raleigh at 4301 Louisburg Road. Come, worship, study, and fellowship at New Hope this Sunday!

Vision, Mission and Goals
The Mission/Vision Commission was charged with identifying the foundational statements for our church – our vision (what we will be) and our mission (what we will do). The commission expanded its work to study not only the vision and mission, but also the identity, beliefs, and values of the church. The commission also felt it was important for the church to have a tagline that concisely “brands” the church for both members and non-members. The commission offers the following for consideration and implementation:
New Hope Vision, Mission, Identity and Beliefs Statement
IDENTITY: We are a family of faith with a passion for fulfilling the Great Commission of Jesus Christ “Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age”(Matt. 19-20).
SLOGAN: GROWING, GIVING AND GOING FOR CHRIST!
