New to Grace?


Grace New Hope is a branch of the Grace Family of Churches. Acquired in 2014, the New Hope location was initially pastored by our founding pastor, Buddy Hoffman. In 2015, the baton was passed to Randy and Anita Rainwater. Prior to pastoring New Hope, Randy and Anita led a thriving student ministry at Grace Snellville. Our church is made up people who love Jesus from various races, backgrounds, and ages. Join us for our Sunday worship service


  • All people have value because they are made in the image of God (John 3:16, 1John 4:7-8).

  • God still speaks through his Word and Spirit. We want everyone to know how to have a relationship with God by studying his word, worshiping him and sensing his direction in their daily life.

  • Parents are the primary spiritual leaders in their children’s lives, and we are here to help them in that role (2 Timothy 3:16, Hebrews 4:12, Acts 2:17, Psalm 78:7-8).

  • Following Jesus is the fullest life. Coming to church on Sunday is not enough. We believe in a life of worship, community and reaching the world through families on mission (Hebrews 12:1-2, Romans 8:28, Acts 2:42-47).
