At Hilltop we exist to Know, Show, and Share Jesus in our neighborhoods, networks, and beyond. This is how we believe people become fully devoted followers of Jesus Christ.
God’s way of reaching and restoring the world has always been through blessing. At Hilltop, we are equipping people to pursue the “B.L.E.S.S.” practices. B.L.E.S.S. is an acronym for five practices that we are teaching in our church for individuals to learn to use in their relationships with others. B.L.E.S.S. is an intentional pathway for persons of all ages who follow Jesus to become more like Jesus and join the mission of Jesus.
B: Begin with prayer
As we engage in these practices, we partner with the Holy Spirit to bless those who do not know him. We invite you to practice these five simple practices with those in your spheres of influence—friends, relatives, acquaintances, neighbors, and colleagues with the hope that we may help them travel further in their journey toward making faith commitments to Jesus. As we seek to authentically BLESS others daily in the midst of our relationships with the people in our life, we believe God will use each of us to bless our world with Christ!
What matters most at Hilltop flows out of these core beliefs:
We believe in one God, eternally existing in three Persons: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. (Matthew 3:16-17, Acts 2:32-36, Ephesians 2:13-18)
We believe that the atonement of Jesus Christ is for every person who repents and believes. (Isaiah 53:5-6, John 2:1-2, Acts 4:10-12)
The Holy Spirit’s presence assures us of our relationship with Christ. He comforts believers, gives them spiritual gifts, and influences them to participate with Him in becoming more like Jesus. (1 Thessalonians 3:12-13, Peter 1:14-19, Corinthians 6:14-7:1)
The Bible is God’s inspired Word and contains all truth necessary for Salvation. We believe the Bible inspired by God is relevant to our daily lives. (2 Timothy 3:16-17, Romans 8:12-14, Galatians 5:16-24)
The church is a local community of believers in Jesus Christ, led by the Holy Spirit. The church informed by the Bible works together in love to reflect Christ. (Ephesians 4:1-24, John 17:14-26, Acts 2:32-47)
