INTRODUCE
Commitment to God; to bring people to a viable relationship with God through a personal faith in Jesus Christ.

DISCIPLE
Commitment to the Body of Christ; to foster an environment of love, acceptance, and forgiveness where we can grow together as a community of loving brothers and sisters in Christ.

REACH
Commitment to those who don’t know Christ; to reach a lost world with the good news that Jesus died for everyone and that His death made it possible to be restored to right relationship with God.

Since it’s founding in 1965, Sunshine Hills Church has pursued a vision of being a strong centre for community in the North Delta and Surrey area. Through a Jesus-focused approach to ministry, hundreds of people have come to find the healing and restoration they so desperately needed throughout the life of this local church.

We believe the Bible is God-inspired. (2 Timothy 3:16, 17)

The Eternal Godhead

We believe God is triune: Father, Son and Holy Spirit. (2 Corinthians 13:14)

The Fall of Man

We believe that man was created in the image of God, but by voluntary disobedience fell from perfection. (Romans 5:12, 19)

The Plan of Redemption

We believe that while we were yet sinners Christ died for us, signing the pardon of all who believe in Him. (John 3:16; Romans 5:8)

Salvation Through Grace

We believe that we have no righteousness and must come to God pleading the righteousness of Christ. (Ephesians 2:8-9)

Repentance and Acceptance

We believe that upon sincere repentance, and a whole-hearted acceptance of Christ, we are justified before God. (Luke 24:46, 47; 2 Timothy 2:24-26; 1 John 1:9)

The New Birth

We believe that the change which takes place in the heart and life at conversion is a very real one. (2 Corinthians 5:17; Galatians 2:20)

Daily Christian Life

We believe that it is the will of God that we be sanctified daily, growing constantly in the faith. (Hebrews 6:1)

Baptism and the Lord's Supper

We believe baptism by immersion is an outward sign of an inward work (Matthew 28:19-20). We believe in commemorating the Lord’s Supper by symbolical use of the bread and juice of the vine. (1 Corinthians 11:24-25)

Baptism of the Holy Spirit

We believe that the baptism of the Holy Spirit is to endue the believer with power; and that His incoming is after the same manner as in Bible days. (Acts 2:4)

The Spirit Filled Life

We believe that it is the will of God that we walk in the Spirit daily. (Ephesians 4:30-32)

The Gifts and Fruit of the Spirit

We believe that the Holy Spirit has spiritual gifts for the Christian; and that believers should show spiritual fruit as evidence of a Spirit-filled life. (1 Corinthians 12:1-11; Galatians 5:22-23)

Moderation

We believe that the experience and daily walk of the believer should never lead him into extremes of fanaticisms. (Philippians 4:5; James 5:19-20)

Divine Healing

We believe that divine healing is the power of Christ to heal the sick in answer to the prayer of faith. (James 5:14-16)

The Second Coming of Christ

We believe that the second coming of Christ is personal and imminent. (1 Thessalonians 4:16-17)

Church Relationship

We believe it is our sacred duty to identify ourselves with the visible church of Christ. (Acts l6:5; Hebrews 10:24, 25)

Civil Government

We believe that rulers should be upheld at all times except in things opposed to the will of God. (Romans 13:1-5)

Judgement

We believe that all shall stand some day before the judgement seat of God; and there receive eternal life or death. (Romans 2:1-16; 2 Corinthians 5:10)

Heaven

We believe that heaven is the glorious eternal home of born-again believers. (John 14:1-3; Revelation 7:15-17)

Hell

We believe that hell is the place of eternal torment for all who reject Christ as the Saviour. (Revelation 20:10-15)

Evangelism

We believe that soul winning is the most important responsibility of the Church. (Acts 1:8; 8:4-8)

Tithes and Offerings

We believe that the method ordained of God for the support and spread of His cause is by giving of tithes and free-will offerings. (Malachi 3:10; 2 Corinthians 9:6-15)
