We have no greater mission as followers of Christ, or as His bride, the Church, than to see people come into a relationship with Christ AND live out their faith by observing all that Jesus has commanded. At Mission Hills, we will live out our cause to call people to becoming greater disciples of Christ by being intentional not only to invest in and invite, but also provide proven means for spiritual growth. In and effort to see lives transformed by the Gospel of Jesus Christ, we are working hard to provide elements at our church that raise people to be spiritually mature adults. We call these elements discipleship initiatives. These are the six essential discipleship initiatives that we have keeping on the forefront of all our efforts at Mission Hills:
