How to Be a Christian
Many people have different ideas about what it means to be a Christian. The only authority that we have is the Bible. We believe that the Bible is the Word of God. Jesus clearly stated that there is only one way to become a Christian and be assured of a home in heaven.
"I am the way, the truth, and the life." Jesus Christ, John 14:6. (The Bible)
There are many religions in the world. Many people sincerely believe in their gods and their teachings. But sincerity is not enough to earn heaven.
Most people are trying to work their way to heaven. No matter how hard we try to be good or spiritual, it will not be good enough. No one can work their way to heaven.
All people are sinners. We are sinners both by our nature and by our choice.
The Bible tells us, "For all have sinned and come short of the glory of God." Romans 3:23 (The Bible)
It is only by God's grace that you can be saved; that is, become a Christian.
"For the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life in Jesus Christ." Romans 6:23 (The Bible)
To become a Christian, you must confess your need of a savior and ask God for His free gift of eternal life.
You must believe that Jesus Christ died for your sins, and that He literally rose from the dead. "That if you shall confess with your mouth the Lord Jesus, and shall believe in your heart that God has raised him from the dead, you shall be saved." Romans 10:9 (The Bible)
By confessing your sin and calling upon the Lord Jesus Christ you can become a Christian wherever you are.

The Hillside Baptist Church was incorporated on April 12, 1978. The church later purchased 3.7 acres of land at the corner of Road 200 and Wyle Ranch Road. In 1988 the first building was constructed. The church began the Hillside Baptist Child Care Center in 1995, which closed in 2010.
The church property has been plotted with a master plan for a new worship and multi-use center. Come and grow with us.
