Faith is demonstrated by both courageous action and simple obedience.

God gives power to his people so that they might serve those who are powerless.

Divine sovereignty and human responsibility work together like two pedals on a bike.

Is God sovereign or are we responsible for our actions? Yes.

Haman got what he deserved. Jesus got what I deserved. That's Christianity.

If you don't practice your beliefs, you probably don't actually believe them. 

Be careful you don’t take an attribute of God and turn it into God. God is love, and God is wrath.

There are days when you will make a decision that alters the course of your whole life.

Coram deo means we live before the "face of God" who sees, hears, and knows everything.

  3. Who do you love who doesn’t know Jesus and risks God’s wrath?
  4. What can we do together to share Jesus with those we love, who don’t yet know him?

Esther was patient and respectful

Don't believe in hell? Dear friend, you will.

It's All About Jesus

Jesus was a man who claimed to be God. Think on that for a minute. If that were true, how would it change the way you thought, felt, and lived this life?

At Mars Hill, we believe that Jesus is God. We take him at his word. Because of this, everything we do is all about Jesus. We invite you to learn more about this man who is God and how you can find forgiveness and new life in him.

The Mars Hill Guide Leadership at Mars Hill

We value community

Church is more than a service. It’s people living life together and helping one another throughout our cities to serve our cities. Each week, thousands of people at Mars Hill meet in hundreds of small communities to learn about God, pray, eat, laugh, and live. We call these Community Groups—and they’re the heart of our church.

The Mars Hill Blog connects you to life around the church and personal growth. And Resurgence is a blog dedicated to helping you grow as a leader at home, work, and church.

Cheerful givers wanted

Jesus is the most generous person who ever lived. He gave his life so that we might live. As Christians, we give our time, talent, and money joyfully in response to Jesus’ generosity and to help more people meet Jesus.
