God is for us

“When I cry out to you, then my enemies will turn back; this I know, because God is for me.” Psalm 56:9 (NKJV)

It is impossible for any human speech to express the full meaning of this delightful phrase, “God is for me.”

He was “for us” before the worlds were made.
He was “for us,” or he would not have given his well-beloved Son.
He was “for us” when he smote the only-begotten, and laid the full weight of his wrath upon him—he was “for us,” though he was against him.
He was “for us,” when we were ruined in the fall—he loved us notwithstanding all.
He was “for us,” when we were rebels against him, and with a high hand were bidding him defiance.
He was “for us,” or he would not have brought us humbly to seek his face.

He has been “for us” in many struggles. We have been summoned to encounter hosts of dangers, and we have been assailed by temptations from without and within—how could we have remained unharmed to this hour if he had not been “for us”?

He is “for us,” with all the infinity of his being, with all the omnipotence of his love, with all the infallibility of his wisdom, arrayed in all his divine attributes, he is “for us,”—eternally and immutably “for us,” “for us” when yon blue skies shall be rolled up like a worn out vesture, “for us” throughout eternity.

And because he is “for us,” the voice of prayer will always ensure his help. “When I cry out to you, then my enemies will turn back.” This is no uncertain hope, but a well-grounded assurance—“this I know.”

I will direct my prayer unto you, and will look up for the answer, assured that it will come, and that my enemies shall be defeated, “because God is for me.”

O believer, how happy are you with the King of kings on your side! How safe with such a protector! How sure your cause pleaded by such an advocate! If God is for you, who can be against you?

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.

What to Expect

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.
