Plant, Revitalize, Mobilize
In Matthew 28 Jesus calls us to make disciples of all nations baptizing them in the name of the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. Our desire is to disciple people to the saving knowledge of Jesus and baptize them into a community of faith. When we plant new churches we are fulfilling the call of discipleship through Christ and following the methods of the apostle Paul to reach more people with the gospel of Jesus.
The Hill desires to plant church’s locally through sending people and leaders out into the communities that they already live in. From that group, our desire is that new gospel-centered churches will form. We also want to assist in revitalizing established churches in the same area. Planting new churches and revitalizing churches provides each church with new ideas for discipleship and loving their communities together. And because no single church can meet everyone’s needs, partnering churches can also be a means of introducing people to a neighboring church that may be better suited to meet their particular needs.
When a community sees a new group of people blessing, recreating, gathering, celebrating, eating with, resting and listening to the needs of those around them, the community is attracted to those people. This brings excitement into that community to unite and network together in order to mobilize more people to live with gospel intentionality in their everyday lives.
We hope that this gospel lifestyle will also mobilize the church not just locally but globally. The people of God must have both a local and global missions mindset. Our goal is to see new churches planted and churches revitalized in an effort to mobilize the church to reach the ends of the earth with the gospel of Jesus.
