Job Description: New Hope Ministry Coordinator

New Hope Church is a community of people living and worshipping in Hamilton’s east end. We yearn to grow in Christ and share God’s grace in our neighbourhood. Our roots as a small church plant began in the Christian Reformed Church twelve years ago. Today, our members come from a wide variety of socio-economic and denominational backgrounds, including Reformed, Mennonite, Catholic, Pentecostal, Baptist and United. Relationships matter to us, and our common unity in Christ is central to the way we operate as a community.

We believe that the good news of Jesus Christ changes everything. We are a community of people excited about the robust Gospel of the Kingdom of God as announced, embodied, and begun in Jesus of Nazareth. We profess the story of Scripture to be the true story of the whole world. We believe in the restoration of creation and the reconciliation of all things to God. We believe that, through Jesus, the New Creation has come in the midst of the old, and that the Gospel transforms every aspect of human life through the power of the Spirit.

We submit to the authority of the Spirit-inspired Word of God and proclaim this as the bastion of truth, while also affirming the Apostles Creed, asking the same of any interested applicant. We humbly seek God’s Holy Spirit to guide us into all truth, aligning and correcting us as we navigate our way through a Canadian culture shaped by the idols of individualism, relativism, and consumerism.

As the Church, we are citizens of God’s Kingdom and take part in His creative and life-giving work of healing and restoration in our corner of creation. We understand our role to serve as the presence of Christ in a broken world, and respect all people as the image-bearers of God. We believe in second chances, speaking out against injustice, and the importance of regularly reminding one another of the secure hope we have in the person of Jesus.
