I love serving New Hope Church because of the incredible love of Christ in the gospel. It’s a deep joy to see life transformation in people and to help them grow in Christ. I have the honor and privilege of serving Christ and His body from “every nation, tribe, peoples and tongues” that we may fulfill His purposes of glorifying God in the neighborhoods and the nations.
Revelation 7:9-10 says After this I looked, and behold, a great multitude that no one could number, from every nation, from all tribes and peoples and languages, standing before the throne and before the Lamb ... and crying out with a loud voice, "Salvation belongs to our God who sits on the throne, and to the Lamb!"
I love this picture of God alone redeeming all of mankind through the gospel. It leads to the eternal praise of Him who "through the church the manifold (multi-colored) wisdom of God" could be a testimony to all of creation of reality of the gospel of Jesus Christ. God’s heart and end game of a multiethnic church to the praise of His glory alone is shown.
