We are so glad that you are taking a look at us. We are excited to share what God is doing through His church at Good Hope Baptist, so please explore all of our website. You probably have a lot of questions, but the most important thing to know about us is that we love Jesus, and we do our best to serve Him faithfully. Probably the best summary of our approach to our life at the church is this mission statement:
At Good Hope Baptist, we are Sharing the good news about Jesus, creating a Loving place, where His people are Discerning the work He has called them to do, and where His people are Equipping one another to do His work.
Good Hope Baptist cooperates with the Southern Baptist Convention, the Baptist State Convention of NC and the Tar River Baptist Association, in order to share the good news about Jesus Christ with the whole world.
We are currently going through a sermon series on the book of Daniel. We are looking at what God has to say about how to live faithfully for Him in an ungodly world. Join us on Sunday mornings at 11:00am for worship and to learn with us God’s Word in Daniel.
What we are studying
At Good Hope Baptist, we believe the Bible is given to us for our good. The leadership of the church endeavors to faithfully preach and teach God’s Word by the power of the Holy Spirit for the edification of His people.
At 10:00 a.m. on Sunday Mornings all age groups are going through the Gospel Project Bible study program. We chose this program because it takes all members of the family through the same study in age-appropriate ways, giving families an opportunity to talk about their studies after they leave church. Please see our Gospel Project page.
Bible Study Cafe
Join us on Wednesday evenings from 7:00pm until 8:30pm for an informal time of prayer and Bible study. We meet in the fellowship hall to have coffee and snacks, pray for each other and discuss a passage of scripture together. We are currently studying the Gospel According to John. Go to our Bible Study Cafe page for more information. Everyone is welcome to attend!
Personal Bible Study
We encourage everyone to have his/her own personal Bible study time. If you are not sure what God would have you study right now, we have a couple of suggestions on a Bible reading plan. You may find Bible reading plans on YouVersion. A few options for daily Bible reading are the following:
With as little as 15 minutes a day, you can read the entire Bible in one year with The One Year Bible. Daily readings are from the Old Testament, New Testament, Psalms, and Proverbs.
With the Discipleship Journal’s 5x5x5 Reading Plan, you can read the New Testament in a year. With 5 minutes a day, for 5 days a week, this plan will take you through one chapter each day. You may download the PDF and print it if desired.
The M’Cheyne Bible One Year Reading Plan features four different readings each day. Each day has two passages from the Old Testament, one from the New Testament, and one from either the Psalms or the Gospels. In one year, you will read the Old Testament once and the New Testament and Psalms twice.
