In a very practical way, we have a four-fold goal in fulfilling the Great Commission. We call it Disciple Life. First, we want to Worship the Savior. Jesus said that the key to drawing people was for him to be lifted up. We know He was talking about His impending death on a cross, but the church has the responsibility to continually lift up the mighty name of Jesus. We do that through Biblical Worship.
Second, we believe that we are to study God’s Word together in groups. We do this through our Sunday morning Bible Study time called Sunday School. We also have Life Groups that meet on Sunday nights, both on campus and in homes. We encourage other Bible Studies throughout the year for those who want something more directed to a specific topic.
Third, we encourage the people of God to be on Mission. That takes place right next door and across the seas. We have a very specific international, national and local plan for our mission’s ministry. We continue to ask the people of God to pray about what their next step is in being on mission. Finally, we believe that we are to serve together. This includes a service area within the church. We desire to see each person within the Body of Christ to have an active service role. This is displayed in many ways at Hillcrest from our greeting ministry, hospitality ministry, widow ministry, and teaching team. Those are just a few examples, but the importance is for each individual to have a service role within the life of Hillcrest. We want to be a church on mission, and we want that mission to be God’s and not our own. We invite you to come and help us be all God created us to be as a church family here at Hillcrest as we reach our City, State, Nation and World.
