We exist to connect people in a relationship with Jesus through the cross and resurrection, to a community of faith, and to the truths of Jesus that set us free. These connections lead us to experience healing and to develop into players in God's mission.
Our mission is founded upon the Great Commission and the two greatest commandments given to all believers by Jesus Himself.
Our mission is to be a church that embodies C3HD, meaning that we are Connecting people to the cross and resurrection, the truth of God's word, and to a community of believers. We are also a church that believes in experiencing Healing, as well as Developing people into being players in God's mission.
The Big 5 are 5 faith practices to which we devote ourselves. Over the years, we have observed and personally experienced that healthy followers of Jesus are actively engaged in all 5 faith practices on a regular basis.
The Big 5 are not something we created. They are practices that are found in scripture and were an important part of the New Testament church described in Acts 2:41-47. In this passage, we find the five faith practices to which the Acts 2 church committed themselves. Hillvue Heights Church strongly identifies itself with the structure of this New Testament Church.
The Acts 2 Church was committed to at least five faith practices that we are committed to also.
We devote ourselves to Biblical Teaching, to Fellowship, to Prayer, to Worship, and to Service to others.
