Mission Statement


Who we are / Where we're going: We are people who fight the powers of this age with the Word of God lived out in our lives; to be total disciples of Jesus Christ - loving God with our Heart, Soul, Mind, and Strength and loving our neighbors as ourselves. Why we exist: We do this unashamedly because the Good News of the Gospel message is the power everyone needs to live abundantly on Earth and to spend forever in Heaven. How we're getting there: We bring the uncompromised Word of God into the worship context through music, dance, media and visual arts with a passion for outreach, community involvement and relevance. We will engage the culture in our community in a variety of settings including Sunday night services, outreach efforts, block parties and other events. Who will be a part: Everyone representing our diverse neighborhoods will be a part of the Youth Church in either a participatory or leadership role.

Description


Community is likewise significant. It suggests both genuine fellowship within our church family and an open door to those around us. As members of one body, we seek to preserve the unity of the Spirit in the bond of peace (Ephesians 4:3). As a light in our community, we're a place of peace for those in chaos, a place of forgiveness for the guilty, and a place of hope for the hopeless. Church, however, is paramount because of its absolute uniqueness. While "Hilltop" and "Community" were our choice in defining who we are, "Church" was mandated by God — as revealed in His Word. It is His designation for the assembly of people called by His name. As such, our course has been charted by God; our destiny has been planned by God; our members have been chosen by God; our purposes have been defined by God.
