We Are CORE
We are a community of Christians who do many things, not just a service. We believe there a few basic things that are needed by all Christians if they are to grow in their relationship with God and each other. At Hills Christian Church we define these things as the CORE of who we are. The idea is to challenge you to some very specific areas to help you mature in your life as a Christian. We believe if you commit to the four parts of the CORE you will find yourself growing in your relationship to God and better equipped to engage the world around you.
We’re striving to become a community of people who love each other and all those God gives us opportunity to connect with. We don’t want to go through the motions of religion, but to truly be the Church God intends us to be, to be ambassadors for Jesus in a world desperately in need of a place they can call home. We meet weekly to worship together. Our response to what God has done and what we stand for encompasses our true devotion and conviction. When we worship corporately, we’re declaring to each other and to God that we are citizens of His Kingdom. Our worship then extends throughout our daily lives. We want you to have a place where you can explore what God has in store for your life. We want you to simply come as you are and share in our common journey of discovering how to better love God and each other.
The primary ways we try to focus on others is through giving of our talents, gifts, time, and resources within our congregation, our community, and world. God wants to use us to love all those He created. The question isn’t, “Do we have the resources to do it?” The question is, “Will we release them for the purpose God has given them for?” To this end, we have decided to give generously a percentage of what is committed each year to ministry outside our “building.” Our desire is not to just “send a check,” but to actively partner with others in need and make a significant difference.
Just as a body needs good food to continue to mature, so too Christians need a healthy diet of spiritual food. We are to love God with all our heart, soul, strength, AND mind. Through educating ourselves on God’s word, we become more effective servants in His kingdom and better equipped to engage the world around us.
We have various opportunities on a continual basis to help you get to know how to live the life God has designed for you. Our main way is through Bible courses and Equip Groups offered on Sundays. But throughout the year we also offer various seminars, conferences, and special events.
