Heart of the Hills is a family church...
     We visited Heart of the Hills on a Wednesday night a while back and have stayed ever
since. The pastor and the leaders of the church stress God's Word as the final
authority in what we should believe and live. The pastor is a great teacher. We have
never heard the principles and truths of the Bible explained so well. The pastor is
a "people" person. He truly loves people. The associate pastor follows right in his
footsteps. You won't find weird beliefs here or power struggles. It's not a perfect
church, but it is a church family of believers who are really seeking after what God
wants for their lives. Come and visit. Oh, and the music is fantastic!

At Peace With A Faithful God and At-Home at My Church...
     I am thankful to the Lord for His active and unique personal ways of revealing Himself to me during the past 27 years through life’s ups and downs. I am thankful to the Lord for the healing of past wounds, for the blessing of my wife and children and certainly for the freedom (via Jesus) from the traps of sin, including pornography. I am thankful for the Lord’s involvement in establishing His principles among the founding fathers of our nation. I am thankful for God’s mercy and patience with me. It was God’s plan for me to be born and alive on the earth today. I was fortunate to be born in 1962 and fortunate to learn the fear of the Lord from my Catholic family, to be born-again in a bible-based Lutheran setting, and to grow even more in Pentecostal/Charismatic church families. I have been blessed to see many answers to prayer – some swift and some slow, but all good. I am so very thankful that God’s closeness (or His Presence) is available to me and that His kingdom’s power changes my body, soul and even inner motives.
     Heart of the Hills has been our church and our extended family since 2009. This is not merely a building with a cross on the roof where people gather once a week and pretend they have “nothing to fix”. Rather, we found an experience with God (based on His Word) and we found people who exercise faith while motivated by love. Most Christians may only experience closeness (aka, “koinonia”) in a small group or home church environment. Koinonia is what Heart of the Hills Church excels at – loving and living life together. Like a good family, we enjoy each other and regularly connect for activities such as: coffee, potluck meals, movie going, camping, Christian music festivals, ocean cruises and conferences. Heart of the Hills is a group of friends who want to brag about and become more like Jesus. The Wednesday evening services and monthly men’s breakfasts are uniquely facilitated for dialogue, versus the common “church practice” of delivering a lecture from “the teacher”. I love the people of Heart and God is definitely working among us – and with us.

Why Heart?...
     If it's in the Bible, we believe it. If it's not, we don't. This statement (often made at Heart) is pretty simple, yet empowering. It's not about rituals, it's about relationships. Our individual relationship with Christ and our relationships with each other, the "Heart family".
     One of the things I find most refreshing is that learning about Our triune God isn't boring. Who said church had to be boring??? I love the open forum of Bible study where pastor leads, but we are encouraged to share and ask questions. My questions or opinions are "heard". It's is a safe place to learn and grow. I feel like I belong. I feel like I am part of the family.
