The Hill Church
A Passionate People who Enjoy and Extend the Gospel of Jesus Christ
At The Hill we are a gospel-centered church. We believe that the gospel is not something you graduate from or outgrow, but it creates, sustains and deeply shapes the Church. The gospel tells us that those who are in Christ, God has proclaimed them as perfect, spotless, and blameless. This does not mean that we are without sin, but this reality of who we are in Christ should greatly effect the motivation in our pursuit of holiness. Instead of righteous as something we strive to achieve or earn the approval of God; the pursuit of righteousness becomes for us to live more and more like what we have already become in Christ.
We believe that when this gospel is properly understood it creates a passionate people, the Church. A church that understands how and why it was formed, and that its power comes solely from the God who loves and saves, then that church corporately and the people individually are transformed through the enjoyment of this gospel and are emboldened to join in God’s plan of reconciling all things to Himself.
At The Hill Church, we seek to be a people who enjoy the gospel by pursuing holiness in joy and gratitude, live in authentic real community, and worship the Triune God for who is and what he has done. Also, we desire to extend the gospel of Jesus by being a radical, counter-cultural community within Fayetteville. We believe that as we share with our city the love of Jesus with a compelling faith, hope, love and service, that we declare the glory of God’s salvation and demonstrate his renewing power. Simply put, as we begin to heal the brokenness of our city (poverty, injustice, hunger) we give a foretaste of the kingdom of God and how God is reconciling all things through the righteous life of Jesus Christ, the wrath absorbing death of Jesus Christ, and the resurrection of Jesus Christ.
