Mercy Hill Church was launched on September 10, 2017. This church was founded on a few major themes, you can see these more clearly expressed on our Values page. We desired to plant a church that embodied authenticity.
We long for authenticity. In a world that is filled with pseudo-signs and wonder, a constant marketing game of bait and switch, and a desire to entertain instead of feed we felt the need for a church marked by simple and authentic faithfulness. We aim to express this authenticity in three ways. First, we aim to express authenticity in the pulpit. Our aim is to serve the people of God the Word of God in every sermon. Authenticity in preaching is directly birthed from our view of Scripture, we believe that the Word of God is the only infallible rule of faith and practice for the Christian life as well as that which makes one wise unto salvation, thus we cling closely to it in our preaching ministry. Secondly, we believe in authenticity in community. God has created the Christian to live in community with other believers, this is best executed in the context of the local church. However, we often rob ourselves of enjoying this community by refusing to live authentically before that community. We know trials and tribulations come, and we know that God has given the Local church to the saints for the purpose of encouraging and walking along with them amidst these difficulties. We know the joys of the Christian life and delight in rejoicing with those who rejoice. An authentic loving community is what we, as a faith family, strive to be. Lastly, we believe in authentic evangelism. This means that we believe evangelism is best done in the day to day life of the Christian. We believe that building authentic relationships for the purpose of sharing the glorious gospel of Christ is the best means of sharing Christ. Our desire is to love people and love them well. The greatest and most authentic way that we love our neighbor is by preaching Christ to them.
Why the focus on authenticity? Because we believe an authentic preaching ministry glorifies God. We believe an authentic and loving community that stirs one another to good works, mourns with each other, rejoices with each other, and worships with each other glorifies God. And lastly, we believe evangelism that is authentic is evangelism that is prompted by our love for people and our love for the glory of God.
In Short, we aim to live the Christian life with authenticity for the glory of God.
