We Have Retained our Life Focus to Live Out God's Heart for the World
Our goal as members of New Hope is to grow into Christ-likeness in our character and life-purpose (2 Cor.3:18). We choose to be global Christians, living by the Spirit in alignment with what God is doing and wants to do in our world. We serve a global God who calls us onto His team. As a church we will nurture and equip our members so that wherever they are, they will be able to powerfully live out the role that God has created for them in His world. Our core values are prayer and community committed whole-heartedly to Jesus Christ, as a multicultural family, where the whole Body ministers to the whole Body, within a global context.
NEW HOPE WELCOMES YOU!
WHO ARE WE?
Our vision statement reflects our global ethos to continue to be the whole Body of Christ ministering to the whole world. We Are committed to serving and caring for one another despite the current limitations forced on us by COVID - 19 and the Global Pandemic.
"God has given us a future and a hope ahead, so we will use any means available to still journey together as a scattered flock!" Dr. Mary Lou
Scattered Flock is our daily devotional written by Dr. Mary Lou. As a scattered flock, we are not able to meet to discuss God's word together, but we can still enjoy God's word together! Check out the example below:
As a church, we value our members. We seek to focus on serving one another in several different ways:
-Our weekly Saturday Zoom meeting is aimed at caring for our members. This is the place were people share prayer requests, their stories, and witness to God's work. Request a link from Dr. Alex Zhou to join in (firstname.lastname@example.org)
- Our Church Retreats, such as our Dec. 2020 Soul Rest, give us space and time to step away from the hurry of life and be with God and each other
-Our WhatsApp "Community Connection" Group Chat keeps us connected day by day. Contact Evan Lature on WhatsApp to get connected (630) 815-5211
LABORATORY FOR CROSS CULTURAL EQUIPPING
What is required of us who DO consciously follow God's lead in crossing cultures? Our church is a laboratory where we are equipped to love one another amid great diversity -in culture, age, backgrounds, and gifts - making a commitment to grace and learning.

Many Christians do not have the time to read all of the edifying books out there. Plus, how are you supposed to know whether the book you want to read is worth your time? Dr. Mary Lou wants to fix that. She reviews a book a week so we don't have to!
