Living Hope for Real People

People hope in a lot of different things. They put their hope and trust in money, power, relationships, even their church. Hoping in these things will always lead to disappointment and discouragement. The only solid hope we can count on is Jesus. He is the only One worth hoping in because He is living, powerful, and completely trustworthy. He is the only Hope for real people with real problems. When we stop hoping in other people, material things, and in ourselves, we find that He is the answer, and always has been.

1 Peter 1:3-4: "Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who according to His great mercy has caused us to be born again to a living hope through the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead, to obtain an inheritance which is imperishable and undefiled and will not fade away, reserved in heaven for you."

Meet the Leadership Team

The Leadership Team of New Hope Bible Church is here to serve you. We are different families from different backgrounds, but by God's grace and mercy we serve Him today.

Pastor Chris and Katie Dodson

We have four boys named Caleb, Simon, Adam, and Benjamin. Pastor Chris grew up in North Carolina and Katie grew up in Cedar City, Utah. We met at Bible College in West Virginia and were married three years later. In 2008 the Lord gave us a desire to plant a church in Northern Utah County. Although we lived in Provo we continued to pray about the towns of Alpine, Highland, and Cedar Hills, and how God might use us to start a new church in these three towns. We were thrilled when God opened up doors for us to be able to move closer to these communities and brought together many pieces to make it possible to start New Hope Bible Church. In early 2014 God directed us to meet Eric and Jessica Jacobs, and moved in their hearts to come help us start this church plant. We held our first church service (in a Highland city public park!) in May of 2014, and haven't looked back since. God is doing incredible things in our community, and we are excited to see God at work to bring people to Himself and build His church!

Eric and Jessica Jacobs

Jessica and I have been married for 12 years. We met in Anaheim California where we served as leaders in the Church youth and young married groups. We now have 5 children Alissa(9), Anthony(7), Rebecca(5), Wesley(2), and Eleanor(1). I currently work as an IT Systems Engineer, Jessica stays home with our children and sells clothes. God has given us a love for people and we are excited to serve the communities in North Utah County.


Join us on Sundays at 10:30am for a time of worship, Bible study and kids club. We look forward to seeing you this Sunday .
