At Hill City, you will find a church that is…
Biblically centered in our worship. The Bible is God’s perfect and fully sufficient guide for all matters of life, and it is the only ultimate authority and standard for truth. We believe in the direct, divine inspiration of Scripture and that it is infallible and without error. As a result, the Bible plays a central role in our worship gatherings, and we look to it as our guide for how we should worship. We seek to neither take away from or add to the instructions that God has given us in His Word.
Reformed in our theology. We believe that prayerful study of God’s Word reveals a Triune God who rightfully acts for His own glory. Without a doubt, the most dramatic and miraculous act of God is when He graciously draws a sinner to Himself through the Holy Spirit and grants mercy and righteousness to that person through the sacrifice of Jesus Christ on the cross. These truths are most accurately expounded in the Reformed tradition, and we find the 1689 London Baptist Confession to be a faithful summary of biblical doctrine. You can read that and other helpful confessions of faith here.
Distinctively Baptist in our church organization. The New Testament describes local, autonomous congregations that were comprised of professing believers who participated in baptism by immersion as a means of identifying with the death, burial, and resurrection of Jesus. These early churches were under no ecclesiastical authority except the Lord Jesus Himself. Accordingly, we find that regenerate church membership, believer’s baptism, and a congregational church structure are essential to God’s plan for a healthy local church. In keeping with this biblical pattern, Hill City is a congregational church that is led by elders who are chosen by the members of the church.
