New Creation:

– We are nothing, formless, empty, and dark.

– In his incarnation, life, death, and burial, Christ became nothing, formless, empty, and dark in order to save us from nothingness, formlessness, emptiness, and darkness.

– Because of His atoning sacrifice and death, we are saved and free from the curse and bondage of nothingness, formlessness, emptiness, and darkness.

– Because of His atoning sacrifice and death, God gave us the Holy Spirit.

– Because of Jesus, by His Spirit and word God forms, fills, and “lights” us.

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.
