The best way to please God is to help his Mankind. Small donations can bring big smiles.


Be Blessed & Be a Blessing

God loves us unconditionally. He gave His only Son to die for the sins of humankind which alone is enough to demonstrate His love for us. The least we can do is, thank God for everything he has blessed us with. At Higher Hope Apostolic Church, we have regular weekly church services, bible studies, and teachable family sessions to make alternative choices in life from a religious perspective.

Why Choose Us

Higher Hope Apostolic Church


About Us

Higher Hope Apostolic Church was founded in 2001 by Bishop Michael Gilcreast, with the sole purpose of serving the community and thanking God for all His favors. Formerly known as The New Life Praise & Deliverance Church, we are located in Charles Town, WV and are planning to expand further in Central Florida. Higher Hope Apostolic Church's mission is to "Build a Church That Stands for God." We ask God to guide us to the forefront, leading the way and setting the example for real Holiness. When it comes to Higher Hope, no place, including the North, South, East, and West, will be off-limits or out-of-reach for God's message.

“I grew up visiting the Higher Hope Apostolic Church every Sunday with my grandmother till she passed away. Now every time I miss her, I revisit the place and pray to God to bless her soul in the afterlife”.

“Recently due to divorce and all, I felt very hopeless and attempted suicide. My neighbor suggested me to attend Bishop Gilcreast’s prayers and ask God for forgiveness and guidance. After attending just one prayer session, I’ve felt so much lighter and hopeful that I plan to visit the church every week”.
