The New Hope Presbytery Vision Statement:
God's Call: We are called into being by God, bound together in servanthood to our Lord Jesus Christ, and sustained by the power and presence of the Holy Spirit. The Triune God calls us into obedience through Scripture and guides us by the confessions of our Reformed faith. Further, God calls us to celebrate our rich diversity, to strive through our oneness in Christ to accept the challenges arising from our differences, and to be inclusive and ecumenical.
Our Response: In response to God's call in Jesus Christ, our mission is to enable local congregations and presbytery as a whole to function as the body of Christ. We will explore establish and equip ministries within the covenant community of our presbytery and beyond.
Through the vision we share, the structures we employ, and the priorities we advocate, the Presbytery of New Hope will call forth nurture and discipline faithful lay and ordained leaders in the Presbytery and in local churches. Moreover, the presbytery will promote community among its members and churches, facilitate dialog, and connect local churches to each other and to the larger denomination.
