About Our Name

No, we are not just another denomination.

     Neither are we interdenominational. It is our sincere desire to be non-denominational.

We are simply Christians!

     It is our wish and purpose to wear no other name than Christ's, and to be known simply as Christians, members of the body of Christ — the church of Christ. Such was clearly true of the Lord's people in the first century (Acts 11:26). It it was good enough for them, it is good enough for us (1 Pet. 4:16)!

     Collectively we refer to ourselves as the church of Christ, the Lord’s church, or some other scriptural description, not in an attempt to be “sectarian,” but on the contrary, to identify ourselves as the church belonging to Christ (Matt. 16:18). Since the church is His bride (Eph. 5:25-27), we call ourselves by His name. The apostle Paul also said, "the churches of Christ greet you" (Rom. 16:16).  We are simply the body of Christ that meets in this local area (Eph. 1:22-23; Eph. 4:4; Col 1:18).

Why "Hillcrest church of Christ?"

     We include the word "Hillcrest" because we meet on Hillcrest Drive. It is not so much a name, as it is a description. It is really that simple!
