You will meet our Welcome Warriors when you drive on the campus, please feel free to let them know if you need help finding your way around.
We want you to feel comfortable when you come to church. Wear jeans and flip flops and you’ll fit right in. Grab a cup of coffee on your way into worship. Relax and listen to what God wants to say to you.
It is our desire to create an opportunity for you to connect with God every Sunday morning. Services begin with music led by our Worship Team. Words will be on the screen for you to follow along. You may be here to just test the waters of our church and we pray you feel welcomed and loved.
God is the Creator and Ruler of the universe. He has eternally existed in three persons: the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit. These three are co-equal and are one God.
(Genesis 1.1,26,27; 3.22, Psalm 90.2, Matthew 28.19, I Peter 1.2, II Corinthians 13.14)
Man is made in the image of God. He is the supreme object of God’s creation. Although God designed man to have fellowship with him, man became alienated from God through disobedience. As a result, all human beings are born with a sinful nature and choose to sin against God. Man is incapable of regaining a right relationship with God through his own efforts.
(Genesis 1.27, Psalm 8.3-6, Isaiah 53.6a, Romans 3.23, Colossians 1.21, Isaiah 59.1-2)
Man was created to exist forever. He will either exist eternally separated from God by sin, or in union with God, through forgiveness and salvation. When you die, you will either spend eternity in Heaven or Hell. Eternal separation from God happens in Hell. Eternal union with God occurs in Heaven.
(John 3.16, I John 2.25; 5.11-13, Romans 6.23, Revelation 20.15)
Jesus Christ is the Son of God. He is co-equal with the Father. Jesus lived a sinless human life and offered Himself as the perfect sacrifice for the sins of all men by dying on a cross. He arose from the dead after three days to demonstrate His power over sin and death. He ascended to Heaven’s glory and will return again to reign as King of Kings and Lord of Lords.
(Matthew 1.22-23, Isaiah 9.6, John 1.1-5; 14.10-30, Hebrews 4.14-15, I Corinthians 15.3-4, Romans 1.3-4, Acts 1.9-11, I Timothy 6.14-15, Titus 2.13)
The Bible is God’s Word to all men. It was written by human authors under the supernatural guidance of the Holy Spirit. It is the supreme source of truth for Christian beliefs and living.
(II Timothy 3.16-17, II Peter 1.20-21, II Timothy 1.13, Psalm 119.105,160, Psalm 12.6, Proverbs 30.5)
Because God gives man eternal life through Jesus Christ, the believer is secure in that salvation for eternity. Salvation is maintained by the grace and power of God, not by the self-effort of the Christian. It is the grace and keeping power of God that gives this security.
(John 10.29, II Timothy 1.12, Hebrews 7.25; 10.10-14, I Peter 1.3-5)
The Holy Spirit is equal with the Father and the Son as God. He is present in the world to make men aware of their need for Jesus Christ. He also lives in every believer from the moment of salvation. He provides the Christian with power for living, understanding of spiritual truth, and guidance in doing what is right. The Christian seeks to live under His control daily.
(II Corinthians 3.17, John 16.7-13; 14.16-17, Acts 1.8, I Corinthians 2.12; 3.16, Ephesians 1.13, Galatians 5.25, Ephesians 5.18)
God has ordained the family as the foundational institution of human society. It is composed of persons related to one another by marriage, blood, or adoption.
What is a disciple? We at Hillcrest define a disciple as “A believer in Christ who is intentionally EQUIPPED, to PURSUE God and people, with the willingness to SERVE the Kingdom.” How do we make disciples? We believe in an Intentional Relational Discipleship approach. What that means is everything done at Hillcrest intentionally builds relationships within the body thus producing disciples who study scripture, serve the body, and openly work through the struggles of life, who then replicate themselves and make disciples.
