Who we are

It is the strong desire of those God has called to minister at His Hill that the risen, living Christ be seen and known as the Altogether Lovely One. The purpose behind every facet of the ministry here is that each person with whom we have contact will be committed to Christ, to His body the Church, and to reaching the lost who are without Him. 


The Torchbearer "center-oriented" ministry at His Hill has several distinct areas of operation in pursuit of this common goal. They are the Bible School, His Hill Ranch Camp and retreats. These people-oriented ministries occur "on-location." "Off-location" ministries include outreach into the community, local church involvement, mission service teams, and teaching CD’s. 


Whether by the sound, clear teaching of the truth of God's Word or by a lifestyle based on its principles, the necessity of a personal response to the claims of Christ is stressed. Every situation is seen with potential for the Lordship of Christ to be demonstrated. We earnestly seek to maintain a warm, loving atmosphere where "quality" in all areas is emphasized. 


We firmly believe God brought this ministry into being; it must continue to develop and grow as a ministry that is led of Him and provided for by Him.

Statement of Faith

Scripture

The Bible is the verbally inspired, inerrant Word of God. Divine inspiration extends equally and fully to all parts of the Bible. The whole Bible in the originals is without error. All the Scriptures center around the Lord Jesus Christ in His person and work in His first and second coming. Because of this, no portion is properly read, or understood, until it leads to Him. All the Scriptures were designed for our practical instruction (Luke 24:27,44; John 5:39; Acts 1:16; 17:2-3; 18:28; 26:22-23; 28:23; Rom. 15:4; 1 Cor. 2:13; 10:11; 2 Tim. 3:16; 2 Pet. 1:21).


Trinity

God is one God, who is Himself three persons: Father, Son and Holy Spirit. Scripture declares the deity and personality of each person of the Godhead (Deut. 6:4; Isa. 9:6; John 1:1-4; 14:26; 2 Cor. 13:14; Eph. 1:3-14). 


Jesus Christ

Jesus Christ, as the Scriptures affirm, is the Son of God (Mark 1:1) and Son of man (Luke 9:22), was born of a virgin (Isa. 7:14; Matt. 1:20-25), and is Himself God (John 1:1-4).


Sin

All men in their natural state are lost, alienated from God, spiritually dead: “All have sinned, and fall short of the glory of God” (Rom. 3:23).


Salvation

Salvation is only by grace, a free gift of God, through faith in the Lord Jesus Christ, who died for our sins according to the Scriptures and rose from the dead on the third day (1 Cor. 15:3-4). Those who receive Christ by faith have their sins forgiven (Eph. 1:7), their hearts cleansed (Acts 15:9), are born of the Spirit (John 3:8), become children of God (John 1:12-13), and are made new creatures in Christ (2 Cor. 5:17).


Resurrection

Our Lord Jesus rose from the dead in the same body that was laid to rest in the tomb (John 20:25-27). The bodies of all believers who die will be raised from the dead and they will receive an incorruptible body like unto the glorious body (1 Cor. 15:53; Phil. 3:21). All other men shall be raised unto the “resurrection of judgment” (John 5:28-29).


Christian Living

Christians, having been born of the Spirit, are to live the new life in the power of the Spirit, “If we live by the Spirit, let us also walk by the Spirit” (Gal. 5:16-25; Col. 2:6). The Christian’s responsibility and normal attitude of life is to yield to God (Rom. 6:13) and allow Christ to live His life through him or her (Gal. 2:20).


Christian Service

Christian living includes Christian service, the winning of souls around us and the preaching of the gospel in the uttermost parts of the earth. In carrying on this work there is needed the enabling of the Holy Spirit, which is granted to believers as they yield and trust (Acts 1:8; 1 Cor. 12:7; Eph. 3:20; Acts 5:32). In all service, prayer is to have the central place (John 14:12-14).


Return of Christ

Jesus Christ will come again to earth a second time (Heb. 9:28), personally (Acts 1:11; 1 Thess. 4:16), bodily (Acts 1:1; Col. 2:9), and visibly (Matt. 26:64; Rev. 1:7). His coming will precede the establishment of His physical kingdom on earth, as foretold by Scripture (Matt. 24:29-30, 42; 2 Thess. 2:7-8; Rev. 20:1-6).
