CORE BELIEFS

BIBLE
We believe that the Bible in its original documents, is the inspired Word of God, the written record of His supernatural revelation to men, absolute in its authority, complete in its revelation, final in its content, and without error in its statements.
ABUNDANT LIFE
We were never meant to live the life that only Christ can live thru us!  It’s not what we can do “For” Him, but how we live “From” Him.  Jesus said, I have come that you might not only have life, but have it to the full (more abundantly).   We are truly grateful for God’s continue transformation of our lives In-Him, and how that overflows into His Body as we pursue Abundant Living.
GOD
There is one God, eternally existent, creator of the heaven and earth. He is manifested in three Persons; Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.
JESUS
The Lord Jesus Christ is God incarnate, conceived by the Holy Spirit, born of a virgin, completely God and completely man. He was sinless and perfect, and gave Himself as a substitutionary sacrifice by shedding His blood on the cross. He was bodily raised from the dead, ascended into heaven and will return bodily to earth.
SALVATION
We believe that the story of the Bible is the story of a God who loves a rebellious and disobedient world. We need to be forgiven—and we need help that is stronger than human help. We need God.

The crucifixion of Christ shows us how awful wrongdoing is, and it assures us that the price for it has been paid. His crucifixion gives us evidence that we have been forgiven, and his resurrection gives us evidence that he is our salvation. God has come to us and saved us because we could not save ourselves. We need this kind of salvation, and the gospel of Jesus Christ teaches that God has given us what we need.

That’s the good news, and we can trust in the finished work of God, not in the flimsy goodness of human beings.

What must I do to be saved? There is only one thing left for us to do; believe God or not believe God. Jesus said, “He that believes on me has everlasting life.”  (John 6:47)  Right now, why not trust Him as your Savior from sin and you can know that you have eternal life.

CHURCH
The purpose of the local assembly is to bring honor and glory to God, by gathering for instruction, worship, and fellowship, and deploying for evangelism in our community and unto all the world.
Where does HCC stand on Homosexuality?
At HCC, we hold firm to what we read in God’s Word that declare Homosexuality is a Sin (at least the physical participation of sexual sin outside the covenant of a man/woman marriage).

However, we do not elevate it to a higher or greater Sin than any other Sin, including all the other Sexual Sins (Pornography, Sex outside of Marriage, Co-Habitation, violating the Marriage Covenant w/ someone else, etc…).

We would welcome a person(s) who are walking in that lifestyle as a place of worship, growth, fellowship, etc… , but also would hold the same Leadership Standards as other blatant sins for anyone in our fellowship seeking to serve/lead.

For example, while we would not allow someone participating in a Homosexual Lifestyle to serve as a Leader, we also would not allow a couple living together to do so either? Of if we knew someone was addicted to Pornography … Or Alcohol … Or Physical Abuse at home. You name it … when we become aware, we address it in LOVE, w/ God’s Word, in hopes of allowing God to use the Body and His Truth to bring repentance and healing, and then we’ve seen people re-position into Leadership areas too.
