As a church body, we share core values. We ascribe to the doctrine of the Southern Baptist Convention.
Park Hill exists to glorify God by every member sharing the gospel, and making disciples, in every walk of life.
These values are the guiding principles behind everything that we do
We depend on the transforming power of the Holy Spirit, the Word of God, and prayer to make us more like Jesus Christ.
We stand together in the truth of God's inerrant Word, celebrating the faith once for all delivered to the saints.
We work together in love for the sake of the Gospel.
We consider others more important than ourselves.
We tell one another the truth in love and do what we say we will do.
We value Southern Baptists of all generations and embrace our responsibility to pass this charge to a rising generation in every age, faithful until Jesus comes.
We believe the local church is given the authority, power, and responsibility to present the Gospel of Jesus Christ to every person in the world.
We join other Christ-followers for the Gospel, the Kingdom of Christ, and the glory of God.
Where we are going
"Every Member, Every Walk" was born from a desire to see two things. First, we envision a church where every member is maturing in Christ and their calling in Christ. Every member of Park Hill is provided an opportunity to grow and mature as a follower of Jesus Christ. We are always looking for ways to do this better. The role of the pastoral staff is to equip the church to mature and to do the ministry of the Gospel (Ephesians 4:12). Each member is called to abide in Christ (John 15), this means taking their spirituality seriously and working on themselves as they serve Christ and others. Also, every member is called to own the Great Commission as a part of their daily life. Every single member of Park Hill is called to share the gospel and make disciples.
Secondly, we envision a church that reaches "every walk of life." Not only is every member called to make disciples, we realize that there is not a single part of our society that we are not called to be active in sharing the hope of the Gospel. "Every walk" simply means that we take the Apostle Paul seriously when he states that, in Christ, "There is neither Jew nor Greek, there is neither slave nor free, there is no male and female, for you are all one in Christ Jesus" (Galatians 3:28).
We want to make disciples in every walk of life. We want to equip every church member to do their God-given part in reaching people for the Kingdom.
So, where are we going? By God's grace, we are moving toward being the kind of church that is making disciples and loving people no matter their background or walk of life.
