We are worshippers! God created us to worship and at Hillside we proudly, loudly, and unapologetically worship our God and King. We worship through remembering the good news of Jesus through preaching, teaching, singing, praying, baptism, and communion. We believe and practice worshipping Jesus everyday in everything we do both as individuals and in community.
We are a "community of grace". We really love one another. Jesus said the world would know we are his disciples by how we love one another. We are committed to living in Gospel community through our small groups and as we gather to celebrate collectively every Sunday. And while in community, we show one another grace as an expression of the Gospel in which God's unending grace and mercy is freely given. We are peacemakers that understand the impossibility of imaging Jesus to the world without displaying the love and grace toward one another that he shows us.
We strive to understand, teach, and do the great commission and commandment Jesus gave his disciples before he ascended into Heaven. We're engaged in church planting and Gospel saturation in Hungary/Romania and we are partnered with Chain of Love in Brazil which cares for orphans and other children in need. But our mission as followers of Jesus is a local one as well. Small Groups are engaged in making disciples in Dickinson as we walk through everyday life together.
Here's a bit more on our vision for Hillside and Dickinson.
