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.

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!

ALPHA + OMEGA

hillside Devotionals, Hillside Women

It is difficult to wrap our minds around the enormity of what God reveals to us in the New Testament book of John: Before anything else existed, there was Christ, with God. He has always been alive and is himself God. He created everything there is—nothing exists that he didn’t make. John 1:1-3 NIV Jesus is the Alpha and Omega, …
