He is Lord of the Church, and it is around Christ that our vision, values, priorities, and practices revolve. Although Jesus commands us to be perfect (complete), none of us at Hixson would claim to have arrived. We are all being transformed — maturing only as we daily yield ourselves to God. We are not striving to all be the same, but we are striving to work together to make a significant difference in our homes, our communities, and our world.
We believe that knowing our mission is important — it tells us where we’re going; and we are excited to see where God is taking us! We hope you’ll join us as we partner with God to transform the world by
offering help, hope & healing through Jesus Christ.
What does it look like to be transformed through Christ? As we continually draw near to God, God draws near to us. We know this truth from Scripture. We also experience it! We see the evidence of God’s grace in three primary areas:
1. Our relationship with God — spiritual growth & worship.
2. Our relationship with others — church & community.
3. Our faith is put into action — service & missions.
In other words, we exist so that people may experience:
the grace of the cross
the warmth of community
the mission of the kingdom
