You're new to the Christian faith? Are you new to Great Hope?

Attending church for the first time can be very intimidating, anxious and fearful because of the unexpected. That's completely understandable! Even those who have grown up in the church can feel these emotions when walking into a new church for the first time. You're hoping for the best but preparing for the worst! We hope to settle those fears. Great Hope Baptist Church is a church where we warmly welcome people and want them to feel at home. A tip and good way to start is to "commit" 4 Sundays in a row to get a clear picture of what Great Hope is like. We welcome all cultures and all walks of life. We are all in this together. We want to be that extra encouragement for you and who knows, on that 5th Sunday, you might be an encouragement to another newcomer!

We look forward to seeing you this Sunday!

Rev. Melvin F. Shearin II, Pastor
Great Hope Baptist Church, Richmond VA
