Hillside Church started meeting in the summer of 2005 with about 15 families, but now about 75 families consider Hillside their church home and community. We are a church plant from Grace Chapel in Englewood, CO and were blessed to receive their support and encouragement as we started.
In 2015 Hillside affiliated with the Converge network of churches and is now part of Converge Rocky Mountain. We are eager to partner with more local churches for the sake of the gospel in Denver and around the world!
Our name: Throughout the Bible mountains and hills mark significant moments where God asked people to meet Him, or where He met them in dramatic and life-changing ways:
- Abraham’s faith-filled obedience with his son Isaac on the mountain was called worship (Gen. 22:5).
- Jesus gathered the crowd on the side of a mountain and taught his followers about life in the kingdom of God (Matthew 5-7).
- On a hill outside of Jerusalem called Golgotha (Matt. 27:33), Jesus lays down His own perfect life in exchange for our sin-filled lives. This shows us how to love and give ourselves away for others.
- On another hill outside of Jerusalem Jesus left his disciples with a charge to reach the world with the good news of his death and everlasting life (Matt. 28:19-20).
Our vision: To be people passionately living life with God– be disciples.
Our mission: We exist so more people can experience life with God– make disciples.
