MISSION & VISION
Hilltown Baptist Church exists to glorify God by leading individuals to faith in Jesus Christ and by training them to become His fully devoted disciples.
The way we accomplish that is by focusing our time and our ministries on three principles: Love God. Love People. Help Others do the Same.
WHAT WE BELIEVE
We believe the entire Bible is the inspired Word of God & that men were moved by the Spirit to write the very words of Scripture. Therefore, the Bible is without error & we recognize Scripture as the final authority in our lives.
We believe in one God who exists in three persons (Father, Son & Holy Spirit). We believe that Jesus Christ is the second member of the trinity (the Son of God) who became flesh to reveal God to man & to become the Savior of the world. We believe that the Holy Spirit is the third member of the trinity who convicts all mankind of sin and who regenerates, sanctifies, comforts and empowers those who believe in Jesus Christ.
We believe that the shed blood of Jesus Christ on the cross provides the only means for the forgiveness of sins. Therefore, salvation only occurs when a person places their faith in the death and resurrection of Christ as the sufficient payment for sin. We believe that salvation is eternally secure.
We believe the Church is the spiritual body of which Christ is the head, and its members are those who have trusted in the finished work of Christ on the cross. The purpose of the local church is to worship God, love one another, and make known the good news of Jesus Christ to a lost world.
Its officers are elders and deacons, whose qualifications, claims and duties are defined in the epistles of Timothy and Titus.
