Our History

New Hope Community Church has a rich history in the city of Gilroy. Our church was founded over 96 years ago. We’ve seen tremendous growth over the years. We’ve met at several different locations throughout the years. We have been blessed with dedicated and faithful people who have been willing to serve in various capacities over the years. God has used this church mightily in the past and we believe even greater days are ahead! We believe it’s imperative to honor all of the previous pastors and leaders that invested in making New Hope what it is today.
