Hillcrest Baptist Church believes in parents and their important part in the discipleship of their children. Youth surveyed nationwide say their number one source of spiritual truth is Mom and Dad, not the pastor, youth pastor or Sunday School teacher. We believe in the family and provide materials that help families grow together and learn a Christian worldview. Wednesday Night LIVE discipleship is a challenge for the church and the families who attend to raise a generation that will stand for Christ and His kingdom.
