Hillside Community Church is dedicated to: The evangelism, encouragement and equipping of believers to be fully devoted followers of Jesus Christ. Preparing believers to minister to the people God has sovereignly placed in their lives, fulfilling the Great Commission. Our focus is outreach, our resource is the Holy Spirit, and our purpose is to bring glory and praise to God.
Confession of Faith
We believe the scriptures, both Old and New Testaments, to be the inspired Word of God, without error in the original writings, the complete revelation of His will for the salvation of men, and the divine and final authority for Christian faith and life.
We believe in one God, Creator of all things, infinitely perfect and eternally existing in three persons, Father, Son and Holy Spirit.
We believe that Jesus Christ is true God and true man, having been conceived of the Holy Ghost and born of the Virgin Mary. He died on the Cross, a sacrifice for our sins according to the Scriptures. Further, He arose bodily from the dead, ascended into Heaven, where, at the right hand of the Majesty on High, He is now our Priest and Advocate.
We believe that the Ministry of the Holy Spirit is to glorify the Lord Jesus Christ, and during the age to convict men, regenerate sinners, indwell, guide, instruct and empower the believer for godly living and service.
We believe that man was created in the image of God, but fell into sin and is therefore lost and only through regeneration by the Holy Spirit can salvation and spiritual life be obtained.
We believe that the shed blood of Jesus Christ and His resurrection provide the only ground for justification and salvation for all who believe, and that only such as receive Jesus Christ are born of the Holy Spirit and thus become children of God.
We believe that the Lord’s Supper and Water Baptism are ordinances to be observed by the church during this present age. They are however, not to be regarded as means of salvation.
We believe that the true Church is composed of all such persons who through saving faith in Jesus Christ have been regenerated by the Holy Spirit and are united together in the body of Christ of which He is the Head.
We believe in the bodily resurrection of the dead, of the believers to everlasting blessedness and joy with the Lord, of the unbeliever to judgment and everlasting conscious punishment.
