Greetings in the Name of the Lord|
Who are we?|
Our church, New Hope Church was started the first week in January 2003 and meets in downtown Taipei near National Taiwan University. We are committed to biblical preaching on the whole counsel of God, contemporary application, and participatory style worship services. Our church's English and Mandarin Sections meet for a bilingual service at 10:00 on Sundays. We eat lunch together each Sunday. There are also weekday home fellowship groups you can be involved in.
We are a connected church -- our local church has affiliated with other churches in the Reformed Presbyterian Church in Taiwan denomination. We coordinate with other churches in the presbytery to train and examine pastoral candidates, plan evangelism and ministry outreaches, support drug rehab and prison mercy ministries, etc.
What do we believe?|
The Bible is the inspired and inerrant Word of God. God has given it to us as the rule of our faith.
In the history of God's church, Christians have made many statements summarizing the basic teachings of the faith found in God's Word.
But everyone is encouraged to openly bring up their questions and doubts. And we go to the Scriptures to find the answers, and look to the Holy Spirit to guide us into all truth from God's Word.
Who serves at New Hope?|
God has called everyone in His church to serve, each to use his spiritual gift for the benefit of others.
Currently our leaders who prepare the church for works of service are:
Rev. Daniel Cohee - Interim Pastor (Teaching Elder)
Our elders continue to participate in training new men for ministry (2 Timothy 2:2) and one common experience for New Hope is to see interns being trained in their midst.
In addition many others serve in the church in teaching Sunday school, leading home fellowship groups, music, set-up and take-down, making bulletins, preparing food, translation, prayer, etc.
We also continue seeking more workers for the harvest to help with new church plants in Taiwan.
Special thanks to our translation team who make the bi-lingual service possible: Jean Heidel, Melody Chen, Helen Lin, Patti Chen, Aaron Heidel and Kevin Tu
What is our vision?|
To be an evangelistic, church-planting church. We want to serve Christ, not our own human organization, and willingly give all and risk all to further God's Kingdom.
We want to reach Taiwan for Christ, be a movement for church-planting, and to build up the Body of Christ both locally and throughout the world.
