Beliefs (Extended Version): Happy Hill Church is a warm, inviting, family-friendly place of worship. This we believe...

1.) The Bible: The Bible is the Inspired and only infallible, authoritative Word of God.

2.) The Holy Trinity: There is one God, eternally existent in three persons: God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit.

3.) God the Father: God the Father is our creator and desires a living, fulfilling, guilt-free relationship with each of us. This relationship is found through Jesus Christ our Savior and intercessor, the on-going indwelling and infilling of the Holy Spirit, fellowship and unity in the local church, and through knowledge and obedience to the Bible, God's Word. He is the rewarder of those who diligently seek Him.

4.) Jesus Christ, Son of God: The deity of our Lord Jesus Christ, in His virgin birth, in His sinless life, in His miracles, in His vicarious and atoning death, in His bodily resurrection, in His ascension to the right hand of the Father, in His personal, pre-millinnium, future return to this earth in power and glory to rule for a thousand years. The redemptive work of Christ on the cross provides healing of the human body in answer to prayer.

5.) The Holy Spirit: Regeneration by the Holy Spirit is absolutely essential for salvation. The Holy Spirit provides sanctifying power to enable believers to live a holy life. The baptism and giftings in the Holy Spirit, according to Acts 2 and 1 Corinthians 12 and 14, is given to believers who ask for it. He will anoint, teach, and enable believers to live a victorious Spirit-Filled of character and ministry.

6.) Man's fall and Need For Salvation: Due to Adam's sin in the Garden of Eden, all men are born in sin, all have sinned, and all will stand in judgment for their deeds. In the future, both saved and lost will be resurrected, one to eternal life and the other to everlasting damnation. Because of this, God the Father has reached out to redeem and restore man through Jesus Christ and its is the Father's will that all men come to repentance. The only means of being cleansed from sin is through repentance and faith in the precious, substitutionary blood of Jesus Christ.

7.) The Church and its Mission: The Bible teaches that all saved mankind, having individually placed their faith in Christ alone for salvation, is the Church. We are received into the church by a spiritual birth. The Bible teaches that every believer is to have some visible Church affiliation here upon earth for spiritual growth and be united effort in partnering together to promote Christ's mission locally, nationally, and globally through evangelism, training, and ministries of mercy and justice. As members of the Church partner together, we will collectively be more effective in efforts and stewardship of our efforts and resources to accomplish our task.

8.) Church Unity: The church must endeavor to be an exciting and inviting place of acceptance, affirmation, and accountability where all believers are welcome to worship, develop relations, and grow in grace and knowledge of God's Word. Though we come from various backgrounds, walks of life, and have different life experiences and personalities, we are to walk in love, fellowship, forgiveness, restitution, and mutual edification so that by our unity the Church can maintain a viable, welcoming testimony to the world that our faith is real and transforming.

9.) Prayer, Praise, and Worship: Going to church should be an exciting event drawing people closer to God through corporate times of singing, praise, worship, and prayer the Body of Christ is strengthened. Throughout Scripture, the people of God experienced great joy, fellowship, increased faith, a releasing of God's presence, miracles, and angelic interventions on their behalf. We believe the same is true today!

10.) The Second Coming of Christ: We believe that Christ will come again to set up His earthly, messianic Kingdom. We believe at the sound of His trumpet, believers, both dead and alive, will be raptured, given new bodies, and rule and reign with Christ!
