    "As good stewards of God’s gifts, we joyfully return a portion of the blessings He provides us. We are to live knowing that the only gift that gives life is faith in Jesus. For when the dust of this life settles, He is the only gift we can count on. Jesus is truly everything we need in this life and in the life to come."

A History
---------
    In 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.

Today in God's Word...
As it was the day of Preparation for the Passover, that the bodies might not remain on the crosses during the Sabbath, for that Sabbath was very important one, the Jews requested Pilate to have their legs broken and their bodies taken down. * * * * * * * * * * * * * So the soldiers went and broke the legs of the first man and of the other one who had been crucified with Him. * * * * * * * * * * * * But when they came to Jesus, as they saw that He was already dead, they did not break His legs, * * * * * * * * * * * * * but one of the soldiers thrust a lance into His side and blood and water at once flowed out. * * * * * * * * * * * * * The man who saw it has testified to it--and his testimony is true, and he knows that he is telling the truth--in order that you too may come to believe it. * * * * * * * * * * * * * For this took place that this Scripture might be fulfilled, “Not a bone of His will be broken.” * * * * * * * * * * * * * And again another Scripture says, “Thy shall look at Him whom they pierced.” * * * * * * * * * * * * * -- John 19:31-37 * * * * * * * * * * * * * - THE NEW TESTAMENT - Charles B.

Veiled by Philosophy

Bible Verses (RcV)
1Cor 1: 19 For it is written, "I will destroy the wisdom of the wise, and the understanding of those who understand I will set aside."
    20 Where is the wise? Where is the scribe? Where is the disputer of this age? Has not God made the wisdom of the world foolish?
    21 For since in the wisdom of God the world through its wisdom did not know God, God was well pleased through the foolishness of the preaching to save those who believe.
...
Col 2:8 Beware that no one carries you off as spoil through his philosophy and empty deceit, according to the tradition of men, according to the elements of the world, and not according to Christ;


Words of Ministry
    The believers at Corinth, being Greeks, regarded themselves as philosophical and full of wisdom. But to God their wisdom was not wisdom at all; it was foolishness. Real wisdom is the wisdom which has been hidden in God. The wisdom of human philosophy is not true wisdom.


    As a person born and raised in China, I became familiar with the classical writings of Confucius. Apparently these writings are full of wisdom. Actually, in the sight of God, they are foolishness. I eventually came to pity the Chinese who were learned in the ethical philosophy of Confucius. This philosophy veiled them and kept them from seeing God, Christ, the Spirit, and God's salvation. Because they were veiled by philosophy, these ethical Chinese could not see these wonderful realities. No doubt, the principle is the same with Greek philosophy. This philosophy was a thick veil covering the Greeks. Even those at Corinth who had believed in the Lord and received Him were still veiled by their philosophy and wisdom.
    Philosophy makes people foolish because it causes them to reject God and deny Christ. What could be more foolish than this? It is the philosophical people who deny God and Christ. Therefore, in the eyes of God, their philosophical wisdom is nothing but foolishness. When I was in China, I earnestly desired that the learned Chinese could turn from their philosophy and see God and Christ.
