Our Vision

The vision for Hilltop.Church is to be ‘a place of community, a place in the community’. Hilltop.Church was established in 1980. We are a Pentecostal church belonging to the CRC Churches International. Beginning as a purely Australian Pentecostal movement with a vision for National revival, the CRC Churches International has grown to encompass a Global vision – planting churches – changing worlds – currently with a presence in approximately 50 nations of the world. The goal is ‘a presence in every nation by 2045’ by establishing a ministry base, partnering with existing ministries, or providing training and support.

“Impacting the world by connecting people to Jesus and the Church”

Our Beliefs


All people fall short of God’s perfect standard and can only find forgiveness through faith in the saving work of Jesus Christ.

New Creation Message

We believe in the liberating power of the New Creation Message that secures and strengthens our foundations in Christ. We show this value by:

  • Ensuring that we teach “rest” in the finished work of Christ’s death on the cross and His resurrection on our behalf, and in the reality of Christ in us through the person of the Holy Spirit.
  • Continually enforcing our authority in Christ and appropriating all the privileges we now possess as members of God’s Family.

The Bible

The Bible is the inspired word of God.

Water Baptism

Christian Baptism, by full immersion in water, of those who have personally placed their faith in Jesus Christ.

Gospel of Grace

We believe in a Gospel-centred and grace-pervading Christian message that must never be added to or changed. We show this value by:

Ensuring that we maintain our abiding conviction that Jesus Christ can save and transform anyone who places their full trust in Him.

Continually embracing repentance and obedience as integral aspects of our response to God’s grace.

The nature of God

In God, the Creator, who has revealed Himself in the Persons of the Father, Son and the Holy Spirit.

The Holy Spirit

We Believe in the Baptism in the Holy Spirit, with the normal initial evidence of speaking in unknown languages.

In the miraculous gifts of the Holy Spirit.
