Our Mission

REACHING UP, REACHING OUT, REACHING IN

 
Our mission at the North Hills church is simply to be the hands, the feet, and the heart of Jesus. 
We make it our aim to reach up to our God who is our All in all, so that we might become more like His Son; to reach out to a world who needs to know the Son, and to reach in to one another, so that one day we may all reign with the Son.
 

Reaching up to God

 
To always strive to recognize our dependence on God through worship, praise, and prayer.
 

Reaching Out Into the World


Jesus gave his mission to his disciples, saying, "As I have been sent [by the Father], so I am sending you" (Jn.20:21). Thus, we are by our very nature a "missional" (sent) church.
 
What are we sent to do? Following Christ's example and his own words, we are to take up his mission:
- Seek and save the lost (Lk. 19:10),
- Serve others (Mk. 10:45), and
- Share (proclaim) the good news (Mk. 1:38).
Thus, we exist not for ourselves, but for God and others. We must have an outward focus.

 

 Reaching in to One Another

 
As Christ's representatives, we seek to be agents of peace and reconciliation, restoring the community that existed in the Garden (Gen. 3) and that will exist in the new heaven and earth (Rev. 21-22). By drawing near to Christ and bringing others to him, we draw near to one another. We meet each other at the foot of the cross, and there we find community with God and one another, creating:
 
"A community of believers that truly reflect the spirit of Christ, growing in faith and spiritual maturity." [Eph. 2:14-22; Cor. 5:18-20]
