COMMIT TO ATTEND CHURCH REGULARLY
We believe in celebrating the glory of God together in big gatherings. From the earliest days in the Christian movement, believers met regularly in the temple courts with numbers of 3000 to 5000. Like the early church, we emphasize the necessity of corporate, preaching, teaching, worship, prayer and communion to encounter God. These things help spur us on as we live as God has called us to live. Whether we are going through a discouraging season or great season in life, we believe that we are called to celebrate the goodness of God in a big way, regardless of our circumstances. Whether we are clinging to his promises in a tough time, or thanking him for answered prayers, we want to CELEBRATE BIG together at Hillcrest Church.
"Every day they continued to meet together in the temple courts."
WHY IS CHURCH IMPORTANT?
“Every day they continued to meet together in the temple courts.”
Attending church helps us "Celebrate Big" the faithfulness of God regularly - a large component of our Discipleship.
The purpose though is not merely for the religious duty of attending church - but rather a personal commitment to regularly and intentionally put ourselves in an experience where God can encounter us and change us.
In an instant or over time, we've convinced that encountering God will supernaturally change our lives, the lives of our family, and the region around us.
Church is a concentration of spaces and places where God can move powerfully, from worship to greeters to preaching.
Biblically we see evidence that God will always encounter us more intimately in eight different areas; the Gospel, Scripture, Spiritual Disciplines, Spiritual Gifts, Gathered Worship, Communion, Baptism, and Suffering.
Many of these guaranteed places of encounter are evident on any given Sunday at Church!
