Mercy Hill Church exists to help develop followers of Jesus who worship God passionately, love one another deeply, and serve their world boldly.

Worship God Passionately.
We believe that every person is called to worship God because of His great love for us, that while we were still sinners Christ died for us (Romans 5:8). The first of God’s two greatest commandments is to love Him.

Love One Another Deeply.
We believe the church is not like a family, but that the church is a family (Gal. 6). The second of God’s greatest commandments is to love others. This is why we value community.

Serve Their World Boldly.
We believe every believer has been called by God to use their time, gifts, and finances to make the world better. We are committed to serving out community, sharing the love and message of Jesus, and being a good example everywhere we go.

Gospel-centered Teaching.
It is only through Jesus that the realities of salvation can be experienced and lived out in the believer’s life. Therefore, our theology, ministry philosophy, biblical interpretation, preaching, counseling, and outreach efforts are all centered on the person and world of Jesus.

Biblical Community.

God has always desired that the Christian life be lived together in community. A community where you are accountable to someone, and accountable for someone. Mercy Hill Church is committed to creating a space where people can belong, grow, and serve together.

Missional Living.
We believe that every member of Mercy Hill Church has been called by God to love their workplace, community, and spheres of influence with message the and love of Jesus. We are committed to providing opportunities to love our city, country, and world in meaningful ways.

Discipleship Oriented.
Discipleship is the primary mission of The Church. Therefore, everything we do introduces people to the person and work of Jesus and then helps people grow in that relationship.

Multiplication Center.
We believe that every member of Mercy Hill Church has the call to be a multiplier, not just through discipleship, but through service as well. Mercy Hill Church would love the opportunity to plant more churches, send out missionaries, and fund the expansion of the kingdom of God.
