MISSIONAL COMMUNITIES

Why Missional Communities and not small groups?
Missional Communities are communities of believers who are on mission. More than just a bible study diving deeply into Gods word, our missional communities obey the one another commands and serve one another as the family of God. These groups cultivate Gospel-Centered Community.

More than just a small group that loves one another richly, we believe that God has sent every believer on mission. These missional communities are designed to have a specific place where they are serving those who are not following Jesus. This could be a high-school, this could be a neighborhood, or simply a set of families. Missional Communities, in name have no power at all; But it is the power of God for salvation when believers speak the gospel one to another and share this good news within our communities. (Romans 1:16)

We are looking for new MC Leaders. If you feel called to lead one of our missinal families we would love to know who you are, and to make sure that you are equipped for the task at hand! If you are interested in leading an MC (1) please email info@hc3.life. (2) We are asking you to leave your name, email and phone number.

WE BELIEVE

Triune God
There is one God. He is perfect and sovereign and is the Creator of all things seen and unseen. God exists eternally in three persons: God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit who are all equal and coexist eternally. The three are distinctly different and, while divine, make up the one true God (Deuteronomy 6:4; Matthew 28:19; John 4:24, 5:18; 10:30; 2 Corinthians 13:14). All 66 books of the Bible, 39 in the Old Testament (OT) and 27 in the New Testament (NT), are the written word of God. The Bible, Scripture, was inspired by God and written by men led by the Holy Spirit. It is God-breathed and without error. The Scriptures, OT and NT, are the foundation and authoritative rule of the Christian faith and of ours at Hill City Church. The Bible is the guide of the Christian life, to be referred back to for doctrinal foundation and life in general (John 16:12-13; 2 Timothy 3:16-17; 2 Peter 1:20-21). Jesus Christ, the only begotten Son of God, always existing, became flesh. He was conceived by the Holy Spirit and born of the Virgin Mary. Jesus is fully God, while being fully man. Jesus Is God. Jesus lived His life on earth as a perfect Man in all aspects of His nature. He is the image of the invisible God (Colossians 1:15). He is the only acceptable payment for the sins of the world. Payment was made when He shed His blood in His physical death on the cross. He rose physically and spiritually from the grave on the third day, defeating death. Jesus is the ONLY way for salvation (John 1:1-14,18; 1 Corinthians 15:1-5; Colossians 1:15-23; 1 Timothy 2:5; Hebrews 1:1-9; 1 John 5:20).

Creation of Humanity
We believe that God created humankind in His image, both male and female (Genesis 1-2). Having been made in His image means we are to display the character of God to the world by functioning as God does, in cultivating, caring for, and governing creation (Genesis 1:26-31). Humans were created to live in joyful relationship with God, and our purpose has always been to glorify Him through this (Psalm 16, Isaiah 43:6-7). Humanity was originally made without sin, and thus was to live in perfect relationship with God and the rest of creation (Genesis 1:31, 2:25).

Sin/Death
Sin is rebellion against God and His holy standards. The first glimpse of this rebellion was when Satan rebelled against God in Heaven (Isaiah 14:12-15; Ezekiel 28:12-19), which led to his banishment from Heaven as he was cast down to earth (Revelation 12:9). Adam and Eve, the first people created by God, went on to rebel against God’s standards (Genesis 2:16-17; 3:6). As a result, the Bible says their consequence was death (Genesis 2:17). Mankind would not only face physical death from this point on but spiritual death as well. The Bible says that after Adam and Eve, all mankind would be born in sin (Psalm 51:5; Romans 5:12, 19). Fortunately for us, the story doesn’t end there. A remedy exists for the curse of sin and death. Atonement, or payment, for the sins of mankind had to be made. Jesus, who lived a perfect and sinless life, took on the wages of out sin and death and overcame it forevermore when He was crucified on the cross and then rose from the dead: defeating death and paying the price of sin for all who would believe (1 Corinthians 15:1-8; Romans 3:21-26).

Salvation
Salvation is God’s free gift to us, but we must accept it. We can never make up for our sin by self-improvement or good works. Only by trusting in Jesus Christ as God’s offer of forgiveness can anyone be saved from sin’s penalty. The Bible clearly states that Jesus Christ is the only path to salvation (John 14:6; Acts 4:12). The conditions for salvation are repentance from sin (Mark 1:15; Acts 17:30; 2 Corinthians 7:10), faith in Jesus (John 3:16; Romans 10:9; Ephesians 2:8-9), and acceptance of the gift of salvation (John 1:12; Acts 2:21; Romans 10:13; Ephesians 2:8, 9; Colossians 2:6). Salvation produces a new life (2 Corinthians 5:17; Ephesians 2:10) that is no longer a slave to sin (Romans 6:14). In its broadest sense, salvation includes regeneration, justification, sanctification, and glorification (Colossians 1:12-14). Eternal life begins the moment one receives Jesus Christ into his or her life by faith. True believers, once saved, are kept secure in Christ forever and cannot lose his/her salvation (John 10:27-29; 1 Corinthians 10:27-29).

New Creation in Christ
In Christ, we have a restored life free from the eternal effects of sin. When Christ inaugurated His rule and reign at His resurrection He has made all of those redeemed in Christ new. To be specific, He has made us a new creation and our old self has literally passed away (1 Corinthians 5:17). We are no longer slaves to sin who have to obey our former master (Romans 6:15-19). Brokenness, sin, and death were swallowed up in victory (1 Corinthians 15:54, 55). Now we are restored: men leading communities and families in righteousness (Romans 6:4) and women, as ambassadors for God, leading in virtue (Proverbs 31). We are the restored nuclear family where a man shall leave his mother and father to hold fast to his wife: the two becoming one flesh with children who are blessed (Mark 10:1-9). We are the restored community where we are no longer divided by ethnicity, gender, or economic class, but united, accepted, and fellow citizens in Christ (Galatians 3:23-29).

Spiritual Gifts
The Bible is clear that when one is justified and declared righteous and holy because of Jesus, he or she is given the Holy Spirit, power, and spiritual gifts as promised by Jesus (Acts 1:8; Ephesians 1:13, 14; 2 Corinthians 1:21, 22). Each family member has been given the manifestation of the Spirit for the purpose of blessing, encouraging, and correcting the whole family (1 Corinthians 12:7). In 1 Corinthians 12, the New Testament paints a picture that the “Church,” the “Ecclesia,” is like a human body. Jesus Christ is the head of this body, and every other part, like our natural bodies, has a necessary role as a joint, bone or ligament does for the rest of the body to function as God intended. Likewise, for the Church to function properly, each family member is needed to use his or her gifts to supply the spiritual gifts to build up the body as each part does its share (Ephesians 4:15, 16). “Are all apostles? Are all prophets? Are all teachers? Do all work miracles? Do all possess gifts of healing? Do all speak with tongues? Do all interpret?” (1 Corinthians 12:29, 30) The answer is no, but all of these gifts are empowered by one of the same Spirit, Who apportions to each one individually as He wills.

Second Coming of Christ
When Jesus was alive He told His disciples that after His death and resurrection He would come back to gather His redeemed, both dead and alive (Matthew 24:30-31; 25:34; John 14:3). This is commonly referred to as the rapture. The Bible says that the redeemed will be caught up with Christ in the air (1 Thessalonians 4:17) and return to heaven with Him. This is followed by great tribulation on earth and will culminate in the visible and bodily return of Jesus Christ to the earth, commonly called the Second Coming (Matthew 25:34; 1 Thessalonians 4:13-18).

Eternity
“And this is eternal life, that they know you the only true God, and Jesus Christ whom you have sent” (John 17:3). Eternal life has more to do with the person of Jesus Christ more than with a location. Eternal life is the dwelling of God with mankind. This is the day when He will dwell with them, and they will be His people, and God himself will be with them as their God. “He will wipe away every tear from their eyes, and death shall be no more, neither shall there be mourning, nor crying, nor pain anymore, for the former things have passed away” (Revelation 21:3-4).
