Statement of Beliefs

Water Baptism      Communion      Baby Dedication      The Grace of Giving      The Word of God

We believe the Bible is the inspired, inerrant, and authoritative Word of God and perfectly and completely reveals God’s will for mankind. (2 Timothy 3:16-17, 2 Peter 1:21, John 10:35)

We believe there is one God, the Creator of all things, who eternally exists as three persons: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. (Genesis 1:1, Deuteronomy 6:4, Isaiah 45:21-22, Matthew 28:19, 2 Corinthians 3:17, Colossians 1:16)

We believe that God the Son became a human being in the person of Jesus Christ and that: He was conceived of the Holy Spirit, born of the Virgin Mary, lived a sinless life, was crucified under Pontius Pilate, was raised from the dead the third day, ascended into heaven, and is seated at the right hand of God. (John 1:1, 14, Matthew 1:18-25, 2 Corinthians 5:21, 1 Peter 3:18, 1 Corinthians 15:3-4, Hebrews 10:12-13

We believe the Holy Spirit is equally worthy of worship as the Father and the Son, and was sent by the Father and the Son to convict the world of sin, righteousness, and judgment. We believe the Holy Spirit regenerates, indwells, and seals believers in the Lord Jesus Christ, and that He empowers them to live as His witnesses. (John 14:16-17, John 16:7-11, Titus 3:5-6, Romans 8:9, 1 Corinthians 6:19-20, Ephesians 1:13-14, Acts 1:8, Romans 12:6-8, 1 Corinthians 12-14, 1 Peter 4:10-11)

We believe that God created both men and women perfect and in His own image, but as a result of the Fall, all people are sinners by nature and in need of a Savior; and that Jesus Christ is the one and only Savior of the world. This salvation is by grace alone through faith alone in Him, and is freely offered to any and all who place their trust in Him. (Genesis 1:26-28, Ephesians 5:22-6:4, 1 Timothy 3:1-7) (Romans 3:10, Romans 3:23, Romans 5:18-19, Matthew 1:21, John 3:16-17, 1 John 4:14, John 14:6, Acts 4:12, Ephesians 2:8-9, Romans 10:9)

We believe there is one church, the body of Christ, consisting of men and women from every tribe, tongue, people, and nation. We believe that each local congregation is an expression of that universal church. We believe in the spiritual unity of believers in our Lord Jesus Christ, regardless of their denomination.(Ephesians 4:4, 1 Corinthians 12:12-13, Revelation 5:9, Acts 2:42-47) · We believe in a future resurrection of the dead. Believers will be raised to life, and unbelievers to shame and everlasting hell. (Daniel 12:2, John 5:25-29, Revelation 21:1-22:5)

Pastor Hector Gonzales

Core Scriptures

Psalm 91:10

He who dwells in the secret place of the Most High Shall abide under the shadow of the Almighty. I will say of the Lord, “He is my refuge and my fortress; My God, in Him I will trust.”

Hebrews 10:25

Not forsaking the assembling of ourselves together, as is the manner of some, but exhorting one another, and so much the more as you see the Day approaching.

Meet our Staff

Hector Gonzales Sr. Pastor

My name is Hector Gonzales, and I am the senior pastor of Church of New Hope. Like so many of God’s children, the Lord saved me from my own destruction.

My life went from gangs in my early teens to becoming a teenage father. I thought to make a life for myself and my children by becoming a deputy sheriff but things spiraled out of control. Eventually, I lost my family, my mind, my freedom, and almost my soul. 

But God had a plan for me from the beginning. I had heard the gospel at the age of 15 when my first son was born, and I had even asked Jesus into my life. But since I didn’t have a good foundation in the Word of God I quickly slide back into a wicked lifestyle. 

My real and deep conversion came about in 1994 when I was physically, mentally and spiritually at an end of myself. I cried out to the Lord and He heard my cry. 

God sent His angels— the Los Angeles Sheriffs “SWAT” teams— to capture me and take me to a place where my Heavenly Father could have all my complete attention.  

It was in Los Angeles county Super-Max that a short Jewish man in a turtleneck sweater shared Jesus with me once again and I surrendered my life completely to Christ as Lord. 

I was given five years to study the Word of God without interruption and in 1999 was paroled to men’s home, a ministry of Calvary Chapel of Downey. 

By the grace of God, I started ministry at CCD in the Janitorial department and as the Lord moved in my life, He blessed me with the privilege of becoming the Pastor and Director of the New Hope Recovery Ministry in 2005. I assumed the position as Church Operation Administrator in 2010 and then in 2019 the Lord called me to partner with other brothers and sisters to establish a community church here in Norwalk.  I am the father of nine awesome children who have caused me to go bald and have blessed me with eleven grandchildren. I saved the best for last and that is that I been madly in love with my beautiful wife Diana for 28 years. 

My life verse is Luke 7:47 Therefore I say unto you, her sins, which are many, are forgiven; for she loved much: but to whom little is forgiven, the same loves little. (In other words, those who are forgiven much love much.)

John Woolard Pastor

Pastor John Woolard first heard the gospel while living in foster care. Even though he prayed to receive Christ as his Savior at 8 years old, he walked away from his faith for many years in his early 20’s while serving in the Marine Corps. He finally got tired of running from God and in December of 2011 submitted his life once again to the Lordship of Jesus Christ. God has faithfully restored him and allowed him to serve in ministry since 2013. John has been married to Breanna for nearly 14 years and they have 3 children.

Fidel Palomo Certified Anger-Mangement Trainer

My name is Fidel PaIomo and I have been blessed to serve at New Hope for 7 years as an usher, anger management, and domestic violence counselor and teacher. I also love to serve at New Hope as the church chef where I can help the ministries with any catering needs for the glory of God. As each year passes, I have come to realize that you can never out give God and their is such joy in serving and blessing others. Most importantly, God has blessed me with three wonderful daughters that are such an important part of my life. As God leads me each day, I strive to humbly serve my Heavenly Father, knowing that real joy, and peace is found in Him.
