We are a growing, innovative church in the Greater Moncton area. Guests often comment on our family-friendly programs, cutting edge music & multimedia, and the relevant teaching. Our mission is:
To honour God by leading people to become fully-devoted followers of Jesus Christ.
Ultimately, our goal is to help people take their next step toward Christ. Since 1974, we have been strategically located in Northwest Moncton and have been endeavoring to meet the spiritual needs of one of the fastest growing communities in New Brunswick in culturally relevant ways. We strive to be a 21st century church for 21st century people! Today we are a vibrant family of believers who love God, enjoy a strong sense of community and are committed to helping others (churched and unchurched alike) discover the joy of having a personal relationship with Jesus Christ. In short, we want to be the kind of church that makes Jesus smile!
Without vision, an organization will lack energy and focus. This is true for a church, too. And that’s why at Hillside we are so excited and passionate about what God in us and through us to transform lives, heal marriages, strengthen families, inspire callings and provide hope and encouragement to all who come through our doors. We have been blessed with a wonderful past, yet we are poised for even greater days ahead! And although we’ve built many programs and buildings along the way, our vision is about building people more than anything else. What drives all that we do is this… Our dream to be an active Acts 2 ‘lighthouse’ church with a premier family ministry in our region.
The strategy behind this vision is our disciple making process that helps people take their next step toward Christ. To achieve this, we have a spiritual growth pathway called our Discipleship Diamond. The first step begins with our monthly “Getting Started” classes where people are introduced to a few very practical ways they can grow in the relationship with God. Ultimately, we aim to envision every Christ follower to experience a lifestyle built around the 3 C’s: celebrate, connect, and contribute. Celebrate involves regular public and private worship; connect is about experiencing vital community through small groups, classes, and seminars; and contribute means making a difference in the church, community and world through your giving and serving.
Insight into what it means to be a committed Christ follower is provided through our Discipleship Diamond. Through these classes people are given tools and next steps to connect, grow, serve and be “All In” as they are envisioned to a life of full devotion to Jesus Christ.
Beyond Our Walls | 2023
As a lighthouse church in the region, we’re excited to build on our strong 45-year foundation and launch a fresh vision with three vital Pillars we believe God wants us to focus on and strengthen over the next 4 years. Join us as we courageously ask God to continue to do amazing things, as we spiritually grow as individuals and as a church – expanding our capacity to have an even greater kingdom impact beyond our walls in the Greater Moncton Area, Atlantic Canada, and the World. Like the early church in Acts, let’s not limit what God can do in transforming our world.
