New Hope Evangelical Church believes in leading (going ourselves) and supporting (sending others) on short and long-term missions at local, national and global levels. Ten percent of the church's weekly offering is allocated to promoting Missions (ministry organizations and missionaries).
The emphasis of Missions is reflective of the church's vision (Come/Grow/Serve/Bring) and facilitates exposure to God's word (and ultimately a decision to follow Christ) by maturing, committed believers who put faith into action through service and discipleship.
He is no fool who gives up what he cannot keep to gain that which he cannot lose. - Jim Elliot

Then Jesus came to them and said, “All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, 20 and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age.” (Matthew 28:18-20)
