Our Vision

To lead the people of God into a spiritually healthy life of prayer, growth, service
and multiplication.

At church on the hill, we believe:

Loving God is the upward dimension of our spiritual formation. We do this through
prayer, spirited-filled worship and Biblical truth.

Loving each other is the inward dimension of our spiritual formation. We do this through spiritual growth in healthy relationships with other believers as we fellowship together. 

Loving our community is the outward dimension of our spiritual formation. We do this through serving others and the multiplication of disciples.

core values


God desires for us to experience truth, grace, love and mercy as we live life together – sharing hurts, celebrating joys, and facing struggles on our lifelong journey with God. This authenticity is born out of honesty, persistence and intentionality. Through authentic relationships with each other we can grow in our faith, experience hope, and be unleashed into God’s kingdom revolution. Therefore, we encourage everyone to become a part of a Small Group at Church on the Hill.


We are called to become disciples of Jesus Christ so that we can show the world who God is, what God cares about, and who God cares about. As such, we encourage and help each other in becoming more like Jesus through Sunday worship, Small Groups, Lifetrack, and our Serve Team.


We are called to be salt and light to the world. The purpose of salt is to prevent things from becoming rotten, to enhance flavor, and to make us thirsty for something – God; and the purpose of light is to point us to something – God. Salt left in the saltshaker and light that is hidden is useless. Thus, as a community of faith, we strive to allow God to “shake” us into our communities and “light up” the world on a daily basis by developing relationships with our co-workers and neighbors and by playing our role God’s story through various acts of service.


Enough said!

Our core values

prayer first

The Pray First ministry at Church on the Hill exists to make prayer the central part of every ministry and activity. Through prayer, we depend on the Holy Spirit, wage war against the darkness, witness to our community and strengthen our relationships with one another.
“Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God.” - Philippians 4:6 NIV

spiritual growth & health

The goal of every attender at Church on the Hill should be to grow deeper in their walk with Christ and pursue spiritual health.
“Every day they continued to meet together in the temple courts. They broke bread in their homes and ate together with glad and sincere hearts.” - Acts 2:46 NIV


Our first priority is to serve the needs of our local body while building a bridge with others in our community. We value showing kindness and compassion by ministering to the needs of Yamhill County and beyond.
“After that, He poured water into a basin and began to wash His disciples’ feet, drying them with the towel that was wrapped around Him.” - John 13:5 NIV


We value servant leadership and the development of new lay-leaders and ministers.  We believe in developing group life and seeking as the method for multiplication and in seeking new opportunities for the ministry to expand and develop beyond  our current structure.
“So Christ Himself gave the apostles, the prophets, the evangelists, the pastors, and teachers, to equip His people for works of service, so that the body of Christ may be built up until we all reach unity in the faith and in the knowledge of the Son of God and become mature...” - Ephesians 4:11-13
