Throughout the Bible, it’s abundantly clear that God is not looking for superheroes to use for his purposes. Instead, God loves to use ordinary people like you and me to do extraordinary things to make an impact. We see throughout Scripture that God uses ordinary men and women to do extraordinary things, and we believe He is still doing this today. The call at Mercy Hill is not for you to be extraordinary but for you to depend on God who is extraordinary. Our confidence is in Him. Where we are weak, God is strong. Where we are limited, God is limitless. We trust in Him.
The goal at Mercy Hill is transformation. We don't want to play religious games or simply change our actions. We want to be people who are continually transformed by Jesus. We want to see people cross over from death to life, broken families healed, and divided communities mended. We welcome you just as you are, but we strongly believe that God will transform you to become more like Jesus.
We believe that our transformation is the work of Jesus. In Titus 3:1-6, we see that real transformation is not propelled by religious activity, moralism, good political policy, culture, or even great community. It is only through the work of Jesus and the mercy of the Father. We live in a world devoid of mercy, and it’s only through His mercy that we can be changed, and transformation can happen.
We feel a unique calling to be a multigenerational church that loves the Campus and the City. The college campus is the most unreached demographic in America. Mercy Hill doesn’t just love the city or the campus; we love them both. As we reach our city and campus, we believe God will send us out to have an impact on the world.
