Urban Hills Church is an ever-growing family, gathered by God to love and be loved
As a church, we operate with the understanding that the family is the cornerstone of all that God is doing. Further, we believe that being family means more than simply being related; it is about being together in Christ and inviting others to join God's family. So before we strive to be anything else, we strive to be a family that God has brought together.
"Strangers are just family you have yet to come to know." -- Mitch Albom
Gathered By God
God has gathered us into a family as a church to continue the work of Christ by the power of the Holy Spirit. We are here because he ordained it. This truth gives us purpose and passion and reinforces the value of our church, because we didn't bring this to pass; God did.
"...I will build my church, and the gates of hell shall not prevail against it." -- Jesus
Love and Be Loved
All that God is doing is driven by his love. In fact, our very capacity to love him and others emanates from the fact that he loved us first. It is our hope that people from all walks of life and all backgrounds would know the love of God because they have been loved well by his people. Further, we believe that part of being in the church means that we open ourselves up to receive love from others.
