New Hope Ministries is committed to a diverse, inclusive, and equitable environment where all service recipients, board members, staff, volunteers, and members of our community feel respected and valued. We respect the value that diverse life experiences bring to our board and leadership and we strive to listen to their views and give them value. We’re committed to modeling diversity, inclusion, and equity and maintaining fair and equal treatment for all. As a Christian ministry we are inspired by the example of Jesus and are committed to following His example and the teachings of the scriptures, which tell us:
1 Corinthians 12:12‐14, “Just as a body, though one, has many parts, but all its many parts form one body, so it is with Christ. For we were all baptized by one Spirit so as to form one body—whether Jews or Gentiles, slave or free—and we were all given the one Spirit to drink. Even so the body is not made up of one part but of many.” (NIV)
Acts 10:34‐35, “I now realize how true it is that God does not show favoritism but accepts from every nation the one who fears him and does what is right.” (NIV)
We are also inspired by our organizational values which guide how we treat one another.
❖ Faithfulness: We will adhere to all of the doctrinal tenets outlined in our Statement of Faith.

❖ Dignity: We understand the sacred worth of each person and will treat all persons with respect.
