Who We Are

A WORSHIPPING COMMUNITY—We delight in our great God, believing that as created our principal purpose is to glorify Him and to enjoy Him forever. The worship of God is at the heart of our calling, and we believe that the same gracious Word that calls us to worship reveals how we may do so in a manner acceptable to Him. Daily private and family worship bears fruit in weekly public worship on the Lord’s Day, as we gather in faith to pray, sing His praises, confess our sins, hear His Word, share at His Table, and express our thanksgiving in offerings.

WITNESS & VOCATION—In the circumstances of daily life our calling is to bear witness to the transforming power of our Lord, whose sacrificial death reconciles us to God, and whose resurrection life brings us abundant life now, and eternal life to come. Through our callings we seek to serve the Lord in the power of the Spirit, who is the sole source of the new birth, the purifying fire in the life of the believer, and the preserving power upholding us in all things. By the Spirit we grow in the practice of godliness, taking “every thought captive to the obedience of Christ,” doing all we do as unto the Lord, whether at work or at play, in our family or in our community. Yet we believe that Christ’s kingdom is a spiritual kingdom built by spiritual means—our church, as a church, does not “intermeddle with civil affairs which concern the commonwealth.”

David Coffin

Dr. David F. Coffin, Jr. is Senior Pastor of New Hope Presbyterian Church, a congregation he helped to plant in 1990. A graduate of St. Vincent College, Labrobe, PA, with a BA (magna cum laude) in Philosophy, David pursed studies at L’Abri Fellowship, Ligonier Valley Study Center, and Pittsburgh Theological Seminary, before receiving his PhD in Systematic Theology from Westminster Theological Seminary, Philadelphia, PA, with a dissertation entitled “Reflections on the Life and Thought of Robert Lewis Dabney With Particular Reference to His Views on Divine Sovereignty and Human Free Agency.” Before becoming a pastor, David served a number of congregations as a Ruling Elder for 14 years. During that period he worked as a legislative assistant for a Washington, DC, law firm and as a writer for Prison Fellowship. David was the founder and served for nearly a decade as director of Berea Center for Biblical and Theological Studies, Mitchellville, Maryland—the Coffin family providing hospitality for the resident student program in their home. David has served the General Assembly of the Presbyterian Church in America in a variety of official capacities—most recently, on the Standing Judicial Commission.
