Founded in 1879, we've always existed to worship God, teach the Bible, care for one another and share the good news of Jesus Christ to everyone with our acts of love and words of truth. 


Core Values


We are very fortunate to have a nursery and a senior's ministry and everything in between. The most obvious way we are multigenerational is having two worship services with distinct styles. Our 9 am service has traditional music and our 11 am contemporary music.  Each service also has elements that complement the music style. Another example of being intentionally multigenerational is our strong commitment to youth and children's ministry


Excellence is doing our best with what God has given us. We never want to settle for the attitude "that's good enough for church." We will use our resources, start ministries, improve our methods, or whatever it takes to do things well so that more people will come to faith and grow in their faith in Jesus Christ. The word excellence reminds us to do everything in word and deed for the glory of God!


Since God showed His love through His presence (John 1:14),and  God commands us to be  present among each other (Hebrews 10:24, 25), and unbelievers (Acts 1:8; Matthew 28:18-20), we are committed to being present in people's lives to show and teach them the love of Christ.  We believe love is shown by our presence! An example of our commitment to presence is the town of South Hill's annual Easter Egg Hunt.
