“Preparing Lives for Today, Tomorrow and Eternity”
Hillcrest Baptist Church was founded in 1959 and God has richly blessed the church ever since. The church was first started in a rented home on the comer of Mauldin Street and Anderson Drive. Soon after that the charter members met together and named the church Hillcrest. Property was purchased just up the road from the rental house by selling bonds. The total bond issue was for $45,000 dollars. This was under the leadership of the Rev. James E. Kelly who was the second pastor of Hillcrest. Rev. Kelly is still attending the church and has been honored by the title of Pastor Emeritus.. Since its first building, which was the sanctuary and now is used as the fellowship hall, there have been multiple additions. The latest addition is the sanctuary (pictured) which was added in 1992.
So if you’re looking for a place where you can experience authentic community and meaningful relationships, you’ll find it at Hillcrest! You’ll find relevant messages, awesome music, and a relaxed atmosphere. You’ll find real people, just like you, discovering an extraordinary God… together! At Hillcrest, we’re “preparing lives for today, tomorrow and eternity!”
