New Hope Baptist Church has recently learned that its former pastor, David Love, has been arrested in connection to a murder warrant. The church has fully cooperated with law enforcement during its investigation, and the church would ask for the prayers and support of the community as the ministry moves forward in the days ahead. We have asked a number of excellent pastors to fill our pulpit while we are currently seeking a new full-time pastor to come lead our ministry in the future.
Anytime someone in leadership is accused of wrong, it can shake the faith of others. We would encourage people to realize that our church is full of many wonderful families and Christians who love Jesus Christ and the Word of God and desire to serve our community.
