Everything we do at Mercy Hill revolves around these elements of the new life we possess in Christ. We live them out personally, locally and globally for the glory of God and the building up of the Church across the world.
Our strategy for ministry is to develop New Testament believers who:
Jesus is central and supreme. No lesser person, belief or thing deserves our highest passion. As followers of Jesus we strive to honor and make much of Him in every area of our lives.
Worshipping Christ is the center of our lives. First and foremost, being part of our family means loving and worshipping Christ as our greatest treasure.
Live in Community
Living in community is the biblical model we see throughout Scripture, from the Trinity to the New Testament Church. God made us to live life together. Community is both one of the greatest tools God uses to make us more like Christ and one of the most effective ways to live out our mission together as the family of God.
The word “disciple” literally means “learner.” Jesus actually commanded his followers in Matthew 28:18-20 to “go therefore, and make disciples of all nations…” All of us are meant to live on mission personally and corporately, locally and globally, for the sake of Christ’s name. Every disciple is meant to be a disciple-maker.
Ultimately, Jesus deserves all worship from everyone on earth, and until this becomes a reality our work is incomplete. To that end, we all make disciples locally while strategically working together to see disciples made among all nations.
Regardless of how long we’ve been following Christ, each and every one of us must always be seeking to continuing growing in knowledge of Christ and obedience to Christ. Every believer is called to be a minister of the gospel, regardless of our location or vocation. In light of this, we pursue ongoing discipleship and training for ministry so that we can be fruitful and effective for the good of the world and the glory of God.
