our vision

WE EXIST TO BEAR WITNESS TO THE KINGDOM OF GOD BY SEEKING THE FLOURISHING OF THE EAST VILLAGE, THE LOWER EAST SIDE, AND ALL OF NEW YORK CITY.

In short, we are a church that exists for the sake of the city. We believe that a church's presence in a particular neighborhood or city should lead to greater flourishing for all people in all of who they are, as we thrive in our relationship with God, our relationships with one another, and our relationship with the systems of the city. 

"...seek the peace of the city to which I have sent you..." - Jeremiah 29:7

Hope East Village belongs to a family of churches in the city, Hope Church NYC, which exists to lead a family of diverse churches into a transforming relationship with Jesus and a community of faith.
