New Hope Small Groups

Here at New Hope, we recognize the need for deeper community and relationships with each other in order to become more like Christ. We are called in the great commision to go and make disciples. Small groups is how we accomplish that. 

The purpose for small groups is simple. We want to be able to live life closer together, to have accountability with one another, and to make sure that we are living out a true biblical community. Being in a small group is where we get to sharpen each other as iron sharpens iron, walk with one another in service, grow in our faith, and keep each other accountable to living for Jesus. It is also a place to lift one another up in prayer take care of one another’s needs. At New Hope we want to not just be a church with small groups, but be a church of small groups.

Core Principles for Small Groups at New Hope

1. The mission is the spiritual formation of disciples of Jesus Christ.

2. Word of God, prayer, and reliance on the Holy Spirit is the central focus.

3. The emphasis will be on the cultivation of closer relationships, i.e. doing life together. 

4. Opportunity for each one to develop and use their unique spiritual gifts.

5. Groups grow and multiply as their community life attracts new members.

6. Group leaders will be trained in effective small group leadership.

7. Groups are missional, periodically engaging together in service inside and outside the church to demonstrate the love of Christ in tangible ways to a world and community in need.
