NEW HOPE MISSIONARY BAPTIST CHURCH
WELCOME TO NHMBC:
"On behalf of the congregation, it is with great honor that I welcome you to visit the web site and the fellowship of the New Hope Missionary Church, 2504 Cecil Avenue, Knoxville, Tennessee 37917. I am Pastor Joe B. Maddox.
I have been privileged to serve as pastor of New Hope Missionary Baptist Church since February 16, 1986. I am married to my high school sweetheart Vivian Goodwin Maddox and the Lord has blessed us with two biological daughters, Tonya Maddox Lewis (Daniel) and Treasure Maddox Bell (Montorius). While we have no biological sons the Lord has endeared two, Reginald D. Winston (Lucinda), and Christopher Douglass (Andrea). We also have 7 (biological and endeared) grandchildren born between December 1997 and January 2005.
Please feel free to browse the web site and pay particular attention to the various ministries and auxiliaries here at New Hope. If you do not have a church home, we welcome you to join us in any and all of our preaching and teaching services.
I hope to see you soon."
- Pastor Joe B. Maddox
"Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age.”
Our mission is to carry out the Great Commission: Go and make disciples, and teach them to obey all of the commands of God, remembering that God is with us always (from Matthew 28:19-20). Being a mission-minded congregation, New Hope reaches outside the four walls of our church to serve our community, the Virgin Islands and Africa in word (by spreading the Gospel message) and in deed (by giving financially to those in need).
"We are to both become disciples and be disciples makers."
Our vision is to educate our community and foreign discipleship. It is the desire of this church to see its members rooted and grounded in the Word of God. All members are encouraged to avail ourselves, not only for Sunday morning worship, but also for the teaching services on Wednesdays and Sundays.
1 Thessalonians 5: 17-18
"Pray without ceasing. In everything give thanks: For this is the will of God in Christ Jesus concerning you."
Here at New Hope, it is quite simple—JESUS ALONE SAVES!! Our sound biblical AIM is absolutely crucial to mature in one’s relationship with the Lord. We believe a person needs to know in whom to believe, what to believe, and why he/she believes. New Hope is a Christ-centered ministry that preaches and teaches the Word of God.
