New Hope Bible Church is located in south York County, Pennsylvania. We are a country church where families come to worship and feel at home. Like a family, we love you as you are. But like God commands us, we love you enough to teach you how to become conformed to Christ. We teach the Bible to all ages. We worship the Lord with a gentle contemporary style blended with traditional hymns. We anticipate meeting new people and hope that you will be one of them!
The purpose of New Hope Bible Church is to glorify God by making disciples who are committed to maturing in Christ, exalting God, edifying one another, equipping the faithful believers, and evangelizing unbelievers.
THE WORD OF GOD
We believe and accept the sixty-six books of the Bible as the inspired Word of God and as our final source of authority in all matters of faith and practice.
We believe that God the Father sent His only Son, Jesus Christ, to die on the cross in order to pay the penalty for our sins and provide the way of salvation for all who believe in Him.
We believe that Jesus Christ is God the Son and when He lived on earth He manifested both the nature of God and man. He lived a perfect life, setting the example for us to follow Him. Jesus taught many things which we seek to obey. But His most important ministry was upon the cross where He secured salvation from sin for all who believe.
We believe that Jesus literally and bodily arose from the dead on the first day of the week following His crucifixion. We believe that His resurrection is essential to complete the payment for our salvation and that it is the hope of all believers.
THE RAPTURE AND THE RETURN OF CHRIST
We believe that the Lord Jesus Christ will return in the clouds and receive those who have trusted in Him as Savior, followed by seven years of judgment and tribulation on earth. At the end of the tribulation our Lord will return to earth and reign for one thousand years. Then a new heaven and earth will be created where all believers will spend eternity with Christ.
