History

New Hope Baptist Church was founded in 1943 by the Reverend David S. Brown. The church's location at that time was at 7th and Willow streets in Reading, PA. In 1960 the congregation moved to its present location at 621 Church St., Reading, PA. Over the years New Hope has been blessed with several pastors and currently is under the leadership of Reverend Jeffery D. Bell Sr. New Hope's philosophy of ministry is to build a relationship with our community by partnering with other supportive and preventive agencies that we may minister to the whole person.

By the members embracing this philosophy, New Hope has grown in quality and quantity, and has become a valuable resource in our community. We welcome anyone who desires to be a part of a family who cares and believes that every body is somebody.
