I'm new

Welcome to Hillside Christian Community! We are so glad you're here!  


We invite you to see if Hillside might be a place where God would want you to be planted and to grow in your walk in life with Him. We are an interdenominational body of believers comprised of people from almost every church background, both Protestant and Catholic. Our services and ministries are open to everyone.  


Please use these pages to learn more about our church community. If this is your first time here, a great place to start is by learning more about our history, our beliefs and our purpose.


We also hope that you will come and visit us! Join us for worship service on Sunday or connect with members of our community through children, youth and adult programs. 


Ready to take the next step? Membership classes are held twice a year.


If you have any questions, please contact the church office at 412-279-2996. We hope to see you soon!

Baptism

Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit (Matthew 28:19)


At Hillside, we believe that the Bible teaches us that all Christians should be baptized in the same way as Jesus, in water by immersion. In doing so, we declare to the world that we have died with Jesus and have been raised with him to walk in the newness of life. (Matthew 28:19; Acts 10:47-48; Romans 6:4)  


For all of you who were baptized into Christ have clothed yourselves with Christ (Galatians 3:27)


Baptism is a beautiful, outward expression of a very personal relationship and trust in Jesus Christ for salvation. It can be administered to anyone who has repented of their sins and who believes in the Lord Jesus Christ to the saving of their souls. (Romans 6:3-5; Colossians 2:12)


Baptisms are held throughout the year. Our next baptism is scheduled for April 27. To learn more about this expression of discipleship, please contact the church office at 412-279-2996 for information.



Baby dedication

Let the little children come to me (Luke 18:16)


All children are gifts from God, and at Hillside, baby dedications are especially joyful occasions. Before God and our church community, parents present their child to the Lord and express their commitment to nurture their child’s spiritual growth by teaching him or her to love God and others.


Baby dedications are held throughout the year. Please contact the church office at 412-279-2996 for more information.

Membership

Hillside Christian Community is an interdenominational body of believers. We are comprised of people from almost every church background, both Protestant and Catholic, and our services and ministries are open to everyone. But we do believe that commitment and membership are very important things. In some ways, membership to a church is much like a marriage. It’s a commitment that is made to each other to grow, to serve, and to work together, even through problems and difficulties when they come our way.


Twice a year, membership classes are available on Sunday mornings prior to the worship service. Our next classes will be held in the Spring.
