Matthew’s Message

“At the heart of [Christ’s] ministry is proclamation of a message identical with that of John the Baptist (3:2) and later to be echoed by Jesus’ disciples (10:7). Jesus calls for a decisive response to a new situation, the arrival in his ministry of the kingdom of heaven.” – Richard T. France

New Hope

By Pastor Glem Melo

The gospel according to Matthew proclaims… Jesus is the Messiah. In Him God’s kingdom or rule has begun. His coming sets before us life and death, salvation and judgment. Choose salvation and life. Repent and believe.

“Matthew’s gospel… is a proclamation of Christ. That Jesus is the Christ is the great truth that forms the basis of the entire narrative [of His life, death and resurrection]. ” – Herman Ridderbos on Matthew 1:1

About New Hope

We are a community of people who believe in and live for Jesus Christ. We embrace and proclaim the Gospel as taught in the Bible and explained in the teachings of the Reformation: Salvation is by grace alone (sola gratia) because of Jesus Christ alone (solus Christus), received through faith alone (sola fide), based on the teachings of the Bible alone (sola scriptura), all for the glory of God alone (soli Deo gloria). SALVATION IS BY GRACE ALONE, THROUGH FAITH ALONE, BECAUSE OF JESUS CHRIST ALONE, BASED ON THE TEACHINGS OF THE BIBLE ALONE, ALL FOR THE GLORY OF GOD ALONE.
