NEW HOPE WEST
In Matthew 28:19 we read of Jesus call to “Go into all the world and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and the Son, and the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you.” It is this call to “GO” that informs everything
New Hope Eugene does as a church.
Included in this calling is the planting of new churches throughout the world, a call that allowed New Hope Eugene to come into existence in 2013. That story now continues with the launch of New Hope West, on the campus of New Hope Christian College. As a sister church, we in every way support this new expression of God’s grace in our community. We also recognize the value it brings to the New Hope Christian College Campus as it provides an on-site Lab church for the students to train in. Raising up young leaders and planting new churches is in every way central to the values and passions of New Hope. In fact, the history of the New Hope movement reflects this very thing.
Since the launch of New Hope Oahu in September 1995, the vision of Pastor Wayne Cordeiro was always to win souls, plant churches and expand the Kingdom of Jesus Christ. Over the last 25 years there have been times when NHO pastors felt prompted by God’s call to plant out a new church from the mother church or from another existing NHO church. Throughout that process, there were those who felt a reticence to “plant-out” given the perception of a church split or decrease in the attendance of the “sending” church. However, looking back at what transpired through those church plants of the past, it is now abundantly clear that they were a part of God’s plan to win more souls and expand His Kingdom in a greater way. All told there are now 130 churches throughout the world that came about through this desire to join with God in raising up leaders and sending out churches. It is with this heart that New Hope Eugene desires to continue in its support and encouragement of New Hope West. We believe it to be just the beginning of many new churches that God wants to plant in order to share His love with a hurting world.
In Great Hope,
