WHY ARE WE HERE?
Hanover Valley exists to assist people in knowing Jesus Christ, until there is a visible difference in their quality of life and in the community. We believe that the Gospel of Christ has a tremendous power to produce positive transformation spiritually, psychologically, socially, and culturally – first through ourselves and then through the community by word, deed, and community.
What kind of church do we need to be to make a difference in Hanover? To help people know, love, and serve God through Jesus Christ? We are striving to be a church with an open door to those who seek Christ and a clear path for those who are journeying toward Him.
