“But you will receive power when the Holy Spirit comes on you; and you will be my witnesses in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the ends of the earth.” -Acts 1:8
At New Hope we embrace our call to the Mission Field. We wholeheartedly believe that we are called to be missionaries in our own Jerusalem, Judea and Samaria and “to the ends of the earth”. Although Jerusalem may be our relatives, friends and coworkers, Judea can include the Queens community and the entire NYC Metro Area. Samaria represents the United States while to us “to the ends of the earth” represents our International Community.
While we have sent Mission Teams “to the ends of the earth” as far as Mexico (2009 & 2010), India (2011), and Bangladesh (2014), we’ve also reached our Judea through ‘Serve the City’, our local Mission Trip to Jamaica, Queens in 2012. We also aim to be missionaries to our Jerusalem every Sunday and through our various ministries such as Small Groups and New Hope Events.
