Welcome to New Creation

We are a Christian community rooted in the well-worn, faithful path of the Anglican tradition.

We invite you to come meet with Jesus, our risen and living Savior. He is forever the centerpiece of who we are.

In the name of Jesus, welcome to our church family’s website. Grace and peace to you.  We’re a growing church community in Hagerstown and we’re part of something amazing God is doing in the tri-state area. We’re part of a movement of solid, Gospel-preaching, Christ-exalting churches practicing a new-yet-old way to be Christian. Have a look around  – I think you’ll find New Creation to be a very welcoming group of people and a very unique church community with a great sense of mission in and to the Hagerstown community. We look forward to meeting you soon (in fact, why not this Sunday?)!

Exalt the triune God. Disciple together. Love our neighbor with the Gospel of Jesus Christ.

— The Rev. Justin Clemente, Parish Pastor & Founding Church Planter
