Ministries International, where Elder Moses L. Scott is
founder and pastor, was birthed in August 1995 after God called Elder
Scott to start a bible study in the basement of his home. This was followed just a few weeks
later by Saturday morning prayer.
God blessed over the next 3 ½ years and the bible study grew to
the point that the basement was no longer sufficient. In April 1999, Elder Scott stepped into
his calling as Pastor as God literally opened the doors of a small church
in Chesterfield, VA.
This allowed him not only to have bible study and Saturday morning
prayer, but Sunday services as well.
5 ½ years later, in November 2004, God miraculously blessed the
church to purchase a seven acre, three building complex at its current
location in Chesterfield
County. Since that time God has further
enlarged our territory establishing New Hope Ministries UK in
Peterborough, England, where Elder Antonio Callisto is Pastor and New
Hope Ministries Kenya, where Elder Evans Nyaosi is Pastor and Overseer of
the NHM Kenya orphanage both in Kisii.
New Hope Ministries' foundation is based on
the gospel of Jesus Christ, and His love for mankind as revealed in the
Holy Bible, which we revere as the unquestionable word of God.
We wish to share the power of Gods love
with others and extend an open invitation for all to come and experience
the loving and supportive environment here at New Hope.
We encourage every individual to give
themselves over completely to God and develop a personal relationship
We teach that it is by this means that one
finds true peace, fulfillment and purpose for life.
We value all people of any age, gender, race
and social status.
We welcome those of other Christian
denominations because we are one in the body of Christ. We recognize that these divisional
categories were created by man, and are irrelevant in the sight of God.
Hope is a community minded ministry
and we encourage each member to share their talents.
We are an apostolic, holistic ministry and
address all levels of mankind's needs, which are spirit, soul and body.
We Believe and Teach
We believe that there is one Lord, one faith
and one baptism. (Eph. 4:5)
We believe that Jesus is Lord. That He is the only begotten Son of
God, who died for our sins and rose on the third day and now sits on the
right hand of the Father making intercession for us. (John 3:16)
We believe that man was born in sin because
of the fall of Adam and Eve (Rom. 5:12).
And, that the confession and acceptance of Jesus Christ as your
personal savior provides salvation from eternal separation from God and
deliverance from sin; first, immediately from the penalty of sin (Rom.
10:10); second, from the power of sin, as we grow and mature in God (Rom.
6:14); and third, from the presence of sin, when we go to heaven to be
with the Lord
(I Thess. 4:17).
We believe that God requires us to live a
holy life and that holiness is a lifestyle, not a denomination. (Rom.
We believe that we are justified by faith and
sanctified through the power of the Holy Spirit and word of God
(I Cor. 6:11; & Gal. 2:16).
We believe that the word of God, when
properly taught and applied, does change lives. (Isaiah 55:11; Heb. 4:12
& Rom 1:16)
We believe that the power of God should be
evident in our lives producing good works. (James 2:17-18)
We believe the body of baptized believers
(the church) should come together for regular worship and fellowship.
We believe in water baptism (full immersion)
and that baptism is an outward expression of an inward conviction.
We believe in the baptism and indwelling of
the Holy Spirit. (Acts 2:4).
We believe that God is still working miracles
and healings in this present church age. (Mark 16:16-18).
We believe in the operation of ministry gifts
within the body of baptized believers (the church). (I Cor. 12:4-11 &
