Vision & Mission of HGBC

“Hill Grove Baptist Church exists to offer the hope of the gospel of Jesus Christ as we Gather, Grow, and Go for the glory of God in Meade County and beyond.”

Gather

We desire for everyone to be a part of our weekly worship service. We believe that everyone desiring to live for Christ needs to actively participate in a weekly corporate worship service through singing, praying, reading, seeing, preaching, giving & responding to the gospel, and connecting with the larger body of believers in Jesus. (Heb 10:25; Col 3:16; Matt 21:13; 1 Tim 4:13; 1 Cor 11:24-26; Rom 6:3-4; 2 Tim 4:2; 2 Cor 8:3; Col 2:6)

Grow

We desire everyone to participate in a Bible study care group. We recognize that gathering to worship & hearing the preached word is not the end, & therefore we desire to further teach & apply the gospel. In gentle & understanding ways, the group is structured to be a safe environment where each one can voice their particular questions, doubts & struggles while the others respond with encouragement, exhortation & prayer. Our Bible study care groups exist so that speaking the truth in love, we will grow up in every way to be like Jesus. (1 Tim 4:13; Eph 4:15; Col 4:2, 4:12; 1 Cor 14:26; Eph 4:29; Heb 2:1, 4:12-13, 10:24-25, 12:12-15)

Go

We desire for everyone to be involved in taking the gospel to our local community and beyond to the ends of the earth. We believe that every follower of Jesus has been given gifts & holy ambitions by God for the purpose of making followers of Jesus throughout the entire world. As we go, we desire to be intentional in living for Jesus & inviting people to join us on mission as we gather again, and grow & go for the glory of God in celebrating the gospel of Jesus. (Matt 28:18-20; Acts 1:8; 1 Cor 7:7; 1 Pet 4:10; Col 2:6; Eph 4:11-12; John 4:29)
