Mission & Vision

Our Mission

Our mission at HCC is to Love God. Love People. Make Disciples. 

Our mission is how we will accomplish our vision, and it comes from Jesus' teaching on the Great Commandment in Matthew 22:37-40 which says, "You must love the Lord your God with all your heart, all your soul, and all your mind.’ This is the first and greatest commandment. A second is equally important: ‘Love your neighbor as yourself.’ The entire law and all the demands of the prophets are based on these two commandments.”

Our Vision

Our vision at HCC is to Multiply Christ-Centered Communities.

Our vision comes from the Great Commission, which is Jesus' call for all people to go and make disciples of all nations in Matthew 28:18-19, "Therefore, go and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit. Teach these new disciples to obey all the commands I have given you."

Our Values

Authority of Scripture
We believe the Bible is God’s perfect guide (or authority) for all things in life and in the church. All Scripture is God-breathed and is useful for teaching, rebuking, correcting, and training in righteousness, so that the servant of God may be thoroughly equipped for every good work. 2 Timothy 3:16-17
Priority of Prayer
We seek to follow the example of the early church who, "joined together constantly in prayer." (Acts 1:14) and "devoted themselves to prayer.’ (Acts 2:42). 
Putting It Into Practice
Frequently, Jesus made the declaration that "if you love me, you will keep my commands." The phrase is found in numerous settings and various ways throughout the New Testament. For this reason, we place a high value not only on learning God’s Word but on living it out. 
Shared Leadership
We understand from Scripture that local churches were originally established under the supervision of a plurality of elders.  A plurality in leadership helps provide a "check and balance system" in ministry, responsibilities, finances, and influence. 
Externally Focused
We recognize that our effectiveness as a church isn’t measured by what happens inside the church, but rather by the impact we have in the communities that surround us.  Our goal is to be "inwardly strong" but "externally focused".
Transforming Relationships
The early church lived together in a dynamic relationship. The New Testament contains more than 50 "one another" commands. Christians are instructed to love one another, pray for one another, encourage one another, forgive one another, and the list goes on. We need one another to truly grow in our faith.
