ENGAGE THE COMMUNITY FOR CHRIST
Embody Christ's love in our community in the example of Luke 10:27
It's our goal to embody Christ's love in the world around us.
Embodying Christ's love in the community will begin with extending our vision and mission into the community through various media outlets. We intend to erect banners on church property to advertise outreach events and expand our reach to visitors by examining bldg. entryways for connections w/congregants & the congregation's vision.
We intend to expand our community food distribution and expand partnerships for Food Ministry. We'll expand our After School Tutoring & partner with local schools & community to identify students needing academic & technical assistance. We'll strive to strengthen our Business and Economic Empowerment Ministry, Health Ministry and Missionary efforts locally, nationally and abroad.
The bus ministry has been called the greatest evangelistic tool in history of the local church. Millions have been able to go to church and hear the Gospel preached and have their lives changes since the introduction of the bus ministry.
At New Hope Baptist Church, we have seen the powerful, life-changing impact of this ministry on countless, boys, girls, teens, and seniors.
If you live in our local Denver Metro area, we would be delighted to being you to church on one of our buses. Each week we have a dedicated driver assigned to for this service. Just check the events section for the driver and their contact phone number or call the church office for the weekly driver.
