God is in the process of calling out for Himself a people to be His bride from every tongue, tribe and nation on this earth. Our responsibility, according to the Great Commission in Matthew 28:18-20, is to deliver the gospel of God’s glorious grace to those people so that they might joyfully worship God with us for eternity. As John Piper has well said, “Missions exists because worship doesn’t.”
New Hope partners with the North American Mission Board and the International Mission Board of the Southern Baptist Convention to assist us in reaching the world with the gospel. We take up two offerings per year for these organizations (one for each) and give a portion of our church budget monthly to them. We also pray for our missionaries and that God would open doors for the gospel every Wednesday evening at prayer meeting. We also partner with the State Convention of Baptists in Indiana and the Tri-State Baptist Network, for the purpose of furthering the gospel here at home.
