Spreading the Gospel
Missions at New Hope defines who we are as a church. Our vision speaks of our desire to have God use us to “supernaturally impact our community, nation, and world.” The missions ministry begins with fervent prayer asking God to equip our church to fulfill the Great Commission. We then train and send our people into the world spreading the good news of Jesus Christ. We rely on God to show us where He is working and then we join Him in His work. Every member of New Hope is expected to be ‘on mission’ in some way. For a full list of where New Hope is involved in our community, click the link below.

Serving The World From Home
Our missionary housing ministry has been in place since 1990 due to the desire and dream of a group of New Hope members to provide housing on the south side of Atlanta for missionaries on stateside assignment.
Over the years, many volunteers have offered countless hours to renovate, decorate, and maintain these homes. Because of their love and commitment to this ministry and New Hope’s vision for missions, these homes have been enjoyed by many families that share the love of Jesus Christ in places all over the world.
