Purpose Statement

Hillcrest Bible Church

A Bible Doctrine Church

Purpose:

The purpose of our Church is to glorify God by teaching and living the message of Grace.

What we believe

The Bible:   We believe that the Bible is God’s Word, and is thereby our final authority in all matters of doctrine and conduct.  We believe that the scriptures are verbally inspired of God and are therefore completely without error ( II Timothy 3:16,17).

God: We believe in God eternally existing in three Persons, Father, Son and Holy Spirit (Deut. 6:4; James 2:19; Matt 28:19).

Man: We believe that Adam and Eve, through their own choice and at the temptation of the Devil, sinned, and thus alienated themselves and the entire human race from God. We believe that all human beings have subsequently sinned and have thereby earned death, physical and eternal (Gen 3: 1-7; Romans 5:18, 6:23; Rev 21:8).

Jesus Christ: We believe that God the Son took on humanity through the virgin birth and became the Savior of the world through His atoning death. He arose on the third day and later ascended into heaven, where He now sits at the right hand of God the Father, awaiting His return to the earth to reign over His glorious kingdom ( Matt 1:22, 20:28; I John 2:1,2; Luke 24:45-53).

Salvation: We believe that eternal salvation is freely given to all those who trust Christ as their Savior. We believe that the only condition for salvation is faith in Christ and His finished work on the cross, and that once a person has trusted Christ as Savior, he can never lose his salvation ( Eph 2:8,9; John 3:16; 5:24).

Heaven & Hell: We believe that those who have been saved will spend eternity with God in heaven, in joyful fellowship and loving service. We believe that those who have not trusted Christ as Savior will be consigned to the lake of fire, separated from God forever (Jude 24; Rev 21:1-4, 20:15; II Thess. 1:9
