ABOUT US

WHO WE ARE


HCC's Mission is to "Restore Lives and Build the Kingdom"  We believe God has called us to do this by helping those who are lost CONNECT with Christ, challenge them to GROW to maturity in their faith, encourage them to put their faith into action and SERVE, and give them opportunities to 

GO beyond the four walls of our Church building to impact our Community and World!


Hillside Christian Church is an independent Christian Church. It is one of about 6,000 other churches like it. These churches range in size from a few members to over 15,000 in attendance each weekend. The other congregations it voluntarily associates with sponsor national and foreign mission activities and colleges. The churches also have camping and retreat centers that are used throughout the year for various gatherings and summer camps programs for children of all ages. Hillside helps sponsor Maranatha Bible Camp at Everton, Missouri. The colleges and churches sponsor seminars and gatherings of different kinds to educate and encourage church leaders and those interested in furthering the spread of the gospel of Christ. All support for these endeavors is strictly voluntary in financial aid and attendance.

Hillside follows the pattern of the first churches found in the book of Acts and the letters to the churches in the rest of the New Testament. We are governed by a group of Elders and Deacons who use the Bible and the leading of the Holy Spirit as their guides. These men are from within our congregation. We have no other governing authority except scripture in spiritual or administrative matters. We find no other structure supported by scripture.
