Love Jesus. Live Like Jesus. Make Him Known.

 

Northwest Hills is all about Jesus. Loving Jesus, living like Jesus, and making Him known is the heartbeat of Northwest Hills Community Church both as a church family and as individuals. We invite you to join us in this mission and vision and let it infuse every part of your life. It's a journey and here at Northwest Hills, we are on this journey together.

 

So, what does it mean to love Jesus. live like Jesus, and make Him known?

Love Jesus

To know Jesus is to love Jesus.

 

Commit to Sundays.

Actively taking part in church each Sunday and hearing the truth of the Bible deepen our love for Him. On Sundays, as a church family, we remind ourselves who we are and whose we are. As we worship and hear the Bible shared we are encouraged in our growth and hunger for Jesus for the coming week.

 

Practice the Spiritual Disciplines

Spiritual disciplines are practices, that can be found in the Bible, that help promote spiritual growth in the Christian's life. These included prayer, silence and solitude, sabbath (a day of rest), fasting, Bible reading and meditation, celebration, and many more. These practices become the rhythms of our lives and are practiced out of love for Jesus.

These disciplines are not a means to salvation, which is a free gift from God, but help attune our hearts to His in our daily lives.

 

Live Like Jesus.

We see Christ's commitment to community and service in His ministry and as a church, we are committed to living like Him in two specific ways: Community Groups and serving.

Join a Community Group.

Community Groups are small groups within Northwest Hills where we commit to living out our walk with Jesus together. In our groups, we serve, enjoy a meal together, study scripture, encourage one another, pray, and tackle difficult questions. Community Groups serve to mobilize the church and to connect people with one another.

Serve.

Service is also a foundational element of our living like Jesus pursuit. Each individual has unique giftings and passions from God and serving is a great way to not only discover your spiritual gifts but also live them out as you connect with and bless others.

Make Him Known.

Live it out.

A natural response to living out our faith in Jesus is to extend His love to those around us. In all that we do and every circumstance we find ourselves in, we strive to follow Jesus' example. Our desire is to bring the good news of salvation to the world. We do this as a church family by being generous with our giftings and resources, loving our neighbors, and clearly communicating the gospel.

We want Jesus to be known in our community and beyond as we live out the gospel individually and as a church.

Intro to NWH

Our Intro to NWH meet-ups are a great way to get to know us, here at NWH, a bit more and also help us get to know you!

During this casual, 1 HR get-together, we'll share a bit more about our NWH vision, how to stay in the loop on all things NWH, and how to get connected! Bring your questions along with you too! We always have a number of staff present and welcome any questions! Sign up for our next meet-up here!

 

Baptism at NWH

Have you recently accepted Jesus as your Savior? Here at NWH, we believe that baptism is the outward demonstration of the inward reality of our faith in Jesus Christ. It is a step of obedience and pictures our identification with Christ in his death, burial, and resurrection. It is post-conversion, public immersion in water in the name of Jesus Christ. Learn more about baptism and share your interest with us here.

 

Membership at NWH

Membership is a commitment to belonging to the local church and its mission. Our mission at NWH is to Love Jesus, Live Like Jesus and Make Him Known. We host membership classes throughout the year that share more deeply what we, as a church, believe and all about what membership means. Share your interest in becoming a member here!

 

Engage with the Spiritual Disciplines

Spiritual disciplines are practices, that can be found in the Bible, that help promote spiritual growth in the Christian's life. These included prayer, silence and solitude, sabbath (a day of rest), fasting, Bible reading and meditation, celebration, and many more. These practices become the rhythms of our lives and are practiced out of love for Jesus.

These disciplines are not a means to salvation, which is a free gift from God, but help attune our hearts to His in our daily lives.

Here are a few great resources for pursuing a deeper commitment to the spiritual disciplines!

Join a Community Group

Being in community is one of the main ways that we live like Jesus! Community Groups are the NWH version of small groups and are made up of people who live out the mission of God together in community through regular gatherings with food, fellowship, accountability, serving, study, prayer and outreach. Community Groups serve to mobilize the church and to connect people to one another to share life and grow together! Find the Community Group that's right for you here!

 

Serve on a Serve Team 

Serving is an outflow of the love that Jesus has showed us. There are many ways to serve here at NWH! Sign up to join a Serve Team and share your gifts and time with others.
