Manna: Bread of Life
“In those days Jesus came from Nazareth of Galilee and was baptized by John in the Jordan.
And when he came up out of the water, immediately he saw the heavens opening and the Spirit
descending on him like a dove.
And a voice came from heaven, “You are my beloved Son;
with you I am well pleased.”
-- Mark 1:9-11
“Our mission at New Hope is to anchor our mind, body and spirit in the love of Jesus Christ through worship, service and community outreach to all of God’s children.”
A HistoryIn January of 2010 a group of Christians seeking and searching gathered for a weekly Bible Study at Hillcrest Restaurant in Littlestown, PA. The group met on Sunday evenings for worship, study and fellowship.
In June of that same year the group now known as New Hope Faith Community gathered for its first Sunday morning worship service. Outdoor worship services were held that summer and in September we began meeting for Worship and Sunday School at the Littlestown High School.
In December of 2013 New Hope Faith Community moved in the former Brushtown Fire Company located at 33 Sunday Drive in Hanover. Here we worship, serve, learn and strengthen the bonds of fellowship.
Crossways Bible Study will resume on Tuesday, September 5 at 7:00 p.m.

Our Righteousness is Different Than Our ConductBible Verses (RcV)
1 Cor 1:30 But of Him you are in Christ Jesus, who became wisdom to us from God: both righteousness and sanctification and redemption,
Isa 64:6 For all of us became like him who is unclean, and all our righteousnesses are like a soiled garment...
Words of Ministry
If our righteousness before God is our conduct, we can never be secure, because our conduct can be good at times and bad at other times. Even if our conduct is good, this goodness is limited and can never come up to God's standard. But thank the Lord that our righteousness before God is not our conduct, but Christ. Therefore, we cannot be shaken before God. We may not be too strong today and may not be too good. Satan will come and say that we are worth nothing and that God does not want us. What should we say? We should say, "Satan, you have forgotten that my righteousness before God is not my good conduct yesterday; neither is it my not-so- good conduct today. My righteousness before God is Christ. If Christ has not changed, my righteousness has not changed either." If we are putting on our own garment, it will be torn and ragged, and we will not see God. But we can put on Christ and have the boldness to come to God. This is salvation, and this is liberation. This is the foundation of all Christian teachings.
If we ask a brother who knows God's Word, "Will your righteousness ever fail?", he will say no. If we ask, "Will your conduct ever fail?", he will say yes. Have you seen this? His righteousness will not fail, but his conduct will fail. Thank the Lord that his righteousness is not his conduct, which can fail; his righteousness is the Christ who can never fail.
