About Charlotte New Hope Church


We are a "come as you are" church. This means that you are more important to us than what you are wearing. At Charlotte New Hope Church, you may see jeans, slacks, suits and dresses - from those ministering on the platform to those seated in the congregation. You will find a friendly greeting awaiting you at the door. The music is lively and you will be encouraged to worship with us as you feel comfortable. Some people are very reserved and may remain seated, while others may like to stand, clap and raise their hands.


Charlotte New Hope Church is a place where hurting people can come to find healing. We are the place where people can come just as they are, and leave refreshed, renewed and restored.


Charlotte New Hope Church is affiliated with Church of God International, headquartered in Cleveland, Tennessee. Our state offices are located in Fenton, Michigan.


Our Vision

Loving God.  Loving People.  Making Disciples

Being a place where the hurting, the depressed, the frustrated, and the confused can find healing, love, acceptance, help, hope, forgiveness, guidance, and encouragement.

Sharing the Good News of Jesus Christ with the thousands of people in Eaton, Barry and Ingham Counties. Welcoming new believers into the fellowship of our church family – loving, learning, and living in agreement together.

Building the body of Christ by ministering to the whole person–spiritually, emotionally, physically, and socially.

Developing people to spiritual maturity through the preaching of the Word, Bible studies, small groups, seminars, and conferences for our members.

Equipping every believer for a ministry by helping them discover the gifts and talents God gave them.

We Believe

That a Great Commitment to the Great Commandment and the Great Commission will grow a Great Church.

To build the body of Christ we will minister to the whole person-spiritually, emotionally, physically and socially. Striving to equip every believer for ministry by helping them discover the gifts and talents God gave them.

In the verbal inspiration of the Bible.

In one God eternally existing in three persons; namely, the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.

That Jesus Christ is the only Son of the Father, conceived of the Holy Spirit, and born of the Virgin Mary. That Jesus was crucified, buried, and raised from the dead. That He ascended to heaven and is today at the right hand of the Father as the Intercessor.

That all have sinned and come short of the glory of God and that a turning away from sin is commanded by God for all and necessary for forgiveness of sins.

That a pardon for past sins, renewal of the mind, and a new birth are molded by faith in the blood of Jesus Christ.

In moral reformation of character subsequent to the new birth, through faith in the blood of Christ; through the Word, and by the Holy Spirit.

Holiness is to be God's standard of living for His people.

In the baptism with the Holy Spirit subsequent to a clean heart.

In speaking with other tongues as the Spirit gives utterance and that it is the initial evidence of the baptism of the Holy Spirit.

In water baptism by immersion, and all who repent should be baptized in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit.

Divine healing is provided for all through the crucifixion of Christ.

In the Lord's Supper.

In the pre-millennial second coming of Jesus. First, to resurrect the righteous dead and to catch away the living saints to Him in the air. Second, to reign on the earth a thousand years.

In the bodily resurrection; eternal life for the righteous, and eternal punishment for the wicked.
