Why do we reach out to others?

Why do we care about serving others? After all, it seems that at times the world tells us to care only about ourselves. The gospel of Jesus does not call us to care only about ourselves, but calls us to share sacrificial love with our neighbor as well. Our purpose at New Hope is to follow in the footsteps of Jesus who came to share God's love and serve others. In all we do, we strive to follow the greatest commandment as mentioned in Mark 12:28-31:
28 One of the teachers of the law came and heard them debating. Noticing that Jesus had given them a good answer, he asked him, “Of all the commandments, which is the most important?” 29 “The most important one,” answered Jesus, “is this: ‘Hear, O Israel: The Lord our God, the Lord is one. 30 Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind and with all your strength.’ 31 The second is this: ‘Love your neighbor as yourself.’ There is no commandment greater than these.”
At New Hope, we exist to love God, love our neighbors, and change the world. Our list of ministries to the right is just a few of many projects that we do throughout the year. Come get involved to see what you can do to change the world with us.
