A Lasting Legacy

hillside Devotionals, Discipleship

“Abba, Father!”. Three times this phrasing is found in Scripture. Abba is the Hebrew word for father. Each time I read it, I feel the weight of the intimacy it carries.  Our Lord is our Abba, Father, and He desires an intimate relationship with us.

hillside Missions

“Go therefore and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit,” Matthew 28:19  Facts tell, stories sell. Most anyone in the field of sales can rattle off that saying. And the amazing thing is, it’s true not only for the business world, but also for evangelism and …

The Church – Called In

hillside Community, Testimony

In a culture of extreme independence, it’s easy to feel as though we should make Christianity a solo sport. But, solo Christianity completely distorts the picture for the Church in which Jesus had intended! Our heart at Hillside is that you find yourself in a community group, connected in such a way that you grow together as disciples and care …
