What We Believe

1. About God
God is the Creator and Ruler of the universe. He has eternally existed in three persons: the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit. These three are co-equal and are one.

Genesis 1:12627: 3:22 ; Psalm 90:2Matthew 28:191 Peter 1:21 Corinthians 13:14

2. About Mankind
We are all made in the spiritual image of God, to be like Him in character. We are the supreme object of God’s creation. Although mankind has tremendous potential for good, we are marred by an attitude of disobedience toward God called “sin”. This attitude separates us from God.

Genesis 1:27Psalm 8:3-6Isaiah 53:6aRomans 3:23Isaiah 59:1,2

3. About Eternity
We all were created to exist forever. We will either exist eternally separated from God by sin, or in union with God through forgiveness and salvation. The place of eternal separation from God is called Hell. Heaven is the place of eternal union and eternal life with God.

John 3:16Romans 6:23Revelation 20:15 (Hell); Matthew 25:41Revelation 21:27 (Heaven)

4. About Jesus Christ
Jesus Christ is the Son of God. He is co-equal with the Father. Jesus lived a sinless human life and offered Himself as the perfect sacrifice for the sins of all by dying on a cross. He arose from the dead after three days to demonstrate His power over sin and death. He ascended to Heaven’s glory and will return again to earth to reign as King of Kings, and Lord of Lords.

Matthew 1:22,23Isaiah 9:6John 1:1-5John 14:10-30Hebrews 4:14,151 Corinthians 15:3,4 Romans 1:3,4Acts 1:9-111 Timothy 6:14,15Titus 2:13

5. About Salvation
Salvation is a gift from God to mankind. We can never make up for our sin by self-improvement or good works. Only by trusting in Jesus Christ as God’s offer of forgiveness can we be saved from sin’s penalty. Eternal life begins the moment we receive Jesus Christ into our life by faith.

Romans 6:23Ephesians 2:8,9John 14:6John 1:12Titus 3:5Galatians 3:26Romans 5:1

6. About Eternal Security
Because God gives us eternal life through Jesus Christ, the believer is secure in their salvation for eternity. Salvation is maintained by the grace and power of God, not by the self-effort of the Christian. It is the grace and keeping power of God that gives this security.

John 10:2911 Timothy 1:12Hebrews 7:2510:10,141 Peter 3:5

7. About the Holy Spirit
The Holy Spirit is equal with the Father and the Son as God. He is present in the world to make mankind aware of our need for Jesus Christ. He also lives in every Christian from the moment of salvation. He provides the Christian with power for living, understanding of spiritual truth, and guidance in doing what is right. The Christian seeks to live under His control daily.

1Corinthians 3:17John 16:7-13John 14:16,17Acts 1:81 Corinthians 2:121 Corinthians 3:16Ephesians 1:13Galatians 5:25Ephesians 5:1

8. About The Bible
The Bible is God’s word to all mankind. It was written by human authors, under the supernatural guidance of the Holy Spirit. It is the supreme source of truth for Christian beliefs and living. Because it is inspired by God, it is truth without any mixture of error.

1 Timothy 3:161 Peter 1:20211 Timothy 1:13Psalm 119:105,16012:6Proverbs 30:5

New Hope Church History

In January of 1988, Russ and Janie Cox were asked by Del Cerro Baptist Church in La Mesa to come to San Diego to explore the possibility of starting a new, evangelical church in the South Bay area of the county.history21-300x198

In April of 1988, the Cox family moved to the east Chula Vista/Bonita area to start New Hope Community Church. It was decided that the church would be launched by using two primary means: small groups and telemarketing. A team had surveyed the area during the summer of 1987 and had discovered some potential prospects for the church.

However, almost 9 months later when the Coxs’ arrived, these families had already found church homes. The idea of building a core group through Bible studies never materialized. During the months of July and August of 1988 a phone bank was set up at Del Cerro Baptist Church. With the help of volunteers from Del Cerro over 17,000 phone calls were made to the ministry area in the South Bay. The telemarketing project was designed to essentially ask two questions: (1) are you an active participant in a local church. If the answer was yes, that ended the phone conversation. The goal was not to take people away from existing churches. (2) If the answer was no, the person was told about a new church that was beginning and asked if they like to receive information about it. Market research showed that 10% of the dial ups would want to be on the mailing list. That figure held true as 1,700 people wound up requesting information about New Hope.

Between August and late September those on the mailing list received 4 direct mail pieces about New Hope. On September 25, 1988 an “instant” new church was born. Market research indicated that 10% of those on the mailing list should attend the first service and half of that number should stay and become part of the church. Unfortunately that wasn’t true. At the first service there were 129 people. Of those 129, 10 were friends from San Francisco and about 30 were well-wishers from our mother church, Del Cerro. There were about 90 true prospects for the church and indeed about half of the 90 stayed. New Hope began with about 45 people, adults and children combined.

From the church’s inception the ministry philosophy and strategy was followed. The church has shown steady and consistent growth both numerically and financially. New Hope has just seen the tip of the iceberg in regards to the great things God is planning to do in and through the life of our church.
