Manna: Bread of LifeIn God We Trust
CHRISTIAN SONGS and HYMNS
"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."
-- The Anchor, November 09, 2018

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.

Veiled by PhilosophyBible 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.
