Or blessings for God’s glory

Our purpose in Christ is to worship God and enjoy him eternally.

Why does God bless us? So we can make a big deal about how great we are? Or does he bless us so that he will be made great?

The entire point of God’s blessing is his glory. God blesses us with every spiritual blessing in Christ so that we may enjoy and glorify him forever. This means that our purpose in Christ is to worship God and enjoy him eternally.

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.
