ENGAGE IN MISSION

HELPING THE VULNERABLE, DISPLACED, AND UNREACHED

ENGAGE IN MISSION

There is immense generosity noted in Acts 2:42-47. ll of us have been placed sovereignly by God in the circumstances, workplaces, and social circles we find ourselves in. The Good News of Jesus changes our motivations and gives us a new perspective on what truly matters in this life. We are called to take the Good News to the world, letting it influence our families, workplaces, and neighbourhoods.  We are invited to give our time and our money, that we would invest in things that last. This includes building into Kingdom initiatives at our own local church and beyond. At Hillcrest Church, we have established local and global partnerships focusing on long term life change in the communities affected by these partnerships. In Acts 2:47 the early church enjoyed the favour of all the people, not just Christians. ENGAGING IN MISSION, through Jesus, will give you a love of people as you see them the way God sees them.

"Prayer Evangelism" by Ed Silvoso

How to Change the Spiritual Climate over Your Home, Neighborhood and City

Best-selling author Ed Silvoso shows that when you change a city's spiritual climate, everything - and everybody - is transformed.  It was something the early church knew innately and here Ed shares a proven, biblical, and practical plan to help you change the spiritual climate of your city. Fulfilling the Great Commission is no longer a distant hope; it is a fast-approaching reality that we may see in our own lifetime.

Tithing & Generosity

Everything belongs to God. He created it. He owns it.

Understanding and coming to terms with this important Biblical truth moves us from the position of owner to the position of manager or steward.
Once we make this shift in our thinking, we are in a better place to begin to practice true generosity.

When we loosen the grip of ownership so that we can become more faithful stewards of all of life, we begin to glorify God in a new way.
