HC3 Church Statement
We, the Elder Team of Hill City Community Church,
We are a faith community who fears God and fears God’s word. We hate sin and any form of it. We are opposed to any form of sexual misconduct, which includes sexual assault or sexual harassment. Injustice and harm will not be tolerated from any member, leader or Pastor within our church.
The Bible says in Titus 1, and 1 Timothy 3 that Pastors, Elders, Overseers’ and Bishops are qualified by their conduct and moral behavior. These qualifications include, but are not limited to; being above reproach, self-controlled, hospitable, not violent but gentle. Therefore, Elders and Pastors can be disqualified by their behavior, lifestyle, and actions.
In like fashion (1 Timothy 3:12), leaders and members of Hill City Community Church are called to live up to the standard set by our Lord and savior Jesus Christ. He, the head of the Church, calls us to live lives of kindness, love, patience, righteousness and peace (Galatians 5:22-23). Members, and leaders can be removed (i.e church discipline) under the authority of Matthew 18 for walking out of step with the Gospel of Jesus Christ. Matthew 18 expressly communicates that individuals who are bearing fruit in righteousness will receive rebuke from Church leadership and will exemplify biblical repentance after being confronted about misconduct.
The Bible calls us to be a church that holds justice, grace, mercy, love, honesty, purity and righteousness all at the same time. In keeping with Church Discipline, accusations brought against any person or persons at Hill City Community Church, will be taken seriously and fully investigated irrespective to a person’s position or title. Any accusations found to be erroneous will be handled with severity as lying is a sin and defaming a person’s character is a crime that is punishable by law (Exodus 20:16, Proverbs 26:28). God is glorified when the church is obedient to the full council of God’s word. May we all walk as children of the “Light.”
