About Us

“Our emphasis is Christ-centred worship, Biblical preaching and effective community engagement.

Our mission

Our mission is built on top of the Great Commission (Matt 28:18-20).

Our passion is to prolifically spread the good news of the Gospel, disciple and equip the believer, comfort the hurting, feed the hungry and help the individual to become the person that God created them to be. 

We believe

We believe the Bible is the inspired Word of God. We believe God is Triune: Father, Son and Holy Spirit. We believe that man was created in the image of God, but that by voluntary disobedience he fell from innocence and from God’s righteous standard. We believe that Christ’s work on the cross atoned for our sin in order for us to be forgiven and restored in right relationship with God.

For more information on what we believe, please see the Statement of Faith on the Full Gospel Australia website.

The old church building in Swansea


New Hope Church began with humble beginnings fifty-five years ago in 1967 as a Full Gospel Church. In 1978, it became Swansea Foursquare Church and in 1983 it changed into New Hope Community Church when Ernie and Eileen Wing became Senior Pastors. In 2002, Col and Deb Grigg took over as Senior Pastors and moved into the new building at Caves Beach in October 2006. In August 2022, Pastor Col and Deb Grigg decided to move on and passed the leadership on to Daniel and Tammy Secomb who remain as Senior Pastors of New Hope Church to this day.
