Membership Seminar Dates: May 1 / May 29

I'd like to welcome you to Hillvue Heights Church. We are praying for you as you consider becoming a member of this church. Hillvue Heights Church is a church that believes that Jesus Christ is the Way, the Truth, and the Life. We believe He died upon a cross, He is risen from the grave, and He is the only way into Heaven. We believe that people must repent of their sin and receive the forgiveness Jesus has given. We believe that people cannot change themselves, but the grace of God changes everything in the human experience.
At Hillvue, I welcome you to worship God, to learn the truth of His Word, to develop healthy relationships with other followers, to serve God through your unique God-given abilities, to participate in a place that prays always, and to give back to others richly, so Jesus' glory might be seen on this earth. Hillvue Heights Church connects, heals, and develops us into followers of Jesus Christ that He's called us to be.
We are praying that you consider Hillvue Heights Church as your faith community. As we live this life together, we appreciate the grace God has given. May the peace, grace, love and mercy of God guide you in this time of decision. Once again, welcome to Hillvue Heights Church.
Praying with You,
Dr. Stephen L. Ayers
