Adult Discipleship

After Christ’s resurrection, at the end of His earthly ministry, He gave His disciples their final “marching orders” as to what their mission on earth—and ours—would be. He told them that on the basis of His authority, they should, “Go therefore and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all that I commanded you…” (Matthew 18:19-20)

The purpose of New Hope is “to glorify God by producing maturing followers (disciples) of Jesus Christ through the four scriptural principles of Learning, Loving, Worship and Prayer.” Whether it is the teaching during weekly worship services, adult discipleship training on Sunday morning or the various other learning opportunities offered during the week, our goal at New Hope is to help people discover, cultivate and grow their Life with God as fully devoted followers of Jesus Christ. More information on some of the Adult Discipleship Opportunities currently available at New Hope is available below. Please consult the church calendar for class schedules.

Discovery Class

This class is designed to introduce the history, organization and core values of New Hope Church, explain how a person comes to faith in Jesus Christ, describe baptism and communion as they are practiced at New Hope, and help individuals find their ministry fit within the church.  The Discovery class is also a prerequisite for membership at New Hope.
