Church Beliefs

The purpose of Hillcrest Baptist Church is threefold:
  1. To worship God the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.
  2. To build up the Church of Jesus Christ through the teaching of the Word and the ministry of the Spirit.
  3. To persuade men and women to repent and confess Jesus Christ as Lord.
We Believe...
There is one living and true God, eternally existing in three persons: The Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit, equal in power and glory; that this triune God created all, upholds all, and governs all.

The Scriptures of the Old and New Testaments are the inspired and the only inerrant, infallible, authoritative Word of God. br>
The church subscribes to the doctrinal statement of The Baptist Faith and Message as adopted by the Southern Baptist Convention.

GOD THE FATHER is an infinite, personal Spirit, perfect in holiness, wisdom, power and love; that He concerns Himself mercifully in the affairs of men; that He hears and answers prayer; and that He saves from sin and death all who come to Him through Jesus Christ.

JESUS CHRIST is God's only begotten Son, conceived by the Holy Spirit. We believe in His virgin birth, sinless life, miracles and teachings, His substitutionary atoning death, bodily resurrection, ascension into Heaven, perpetual intercession for His people and personal, visible return to earth.

The HOLY SPIRIT, came forth from the Father and Son to convict the world of sin, righteousness, and judgment, and to regenerate, sanctify and empower for ministry all who believe in Christ; we believe the Holy Spirit indwells every believer in Jesus Christ and that He is an abiding Helper, Teacher, and Guide. We believe the Holy Spirit baptizes the believer with power for service.

All people are sinners by nature and choice and are therefore under condemnation. GOD regenerates by the Holy Spirit, those who repent of their sins and confess Jesus Christ as Lord.

The CHURCH, is the living spiritual body, of which CHRIST is the Head and all born again (regenerated) persons are members.

The LORD JESUS CHRIST committed two ordinances to the Church: 1. Baptism 2. The Lord's Supper.

We believe in baptism by immersion and the Lord's Supper is open to all believers as acts of love and devotion. We do not consider them necessary for salvation.

We believe in the personal, visible RETURN OF CHRIST to earth and the establishment of His Kingdom; in the resurrection of the body, the final judgment and eternal blessing of the righteous and endless suffering of the wicked.
