What We Believe

Mars Hill is a member of the Southern Baptist Convention, Georgia Baptist Convention, and the local Appalachee Association. Our church affirms the baptist faith and message.


The Bible was written by men who were divinely inspired, and it is God’s revelation of Himself to man. It is a perfect treasure of divine instruction


We believe Jesus is the Son of God, was born of a virgin, was wholly God and wholly man, lived a sinless life, died in our place as a sacrifice for the sins of mankind, was buried, arose bodily from the grave, and ascended into Heaven.


We believe that man is a special creation of God, made in His image, but that through the sin of the first man, Adam, mankind fell so that all men are sinners and need salvation, which is found only in Christ.


We believe that salvation is a gift received through repentance toward God and faith in the Lord Jesus Christ.


There is only one living and true God who exists in three persons: the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit. He is all-powerful, all-knowing, all-loving, and all wise.

Holy Spirit

The Holy Spirit is the Spirit of God, fully divine. He calls men to the Savior. He cultivates Christian character, comforts believers, and bestows spiritual gifts by which we serve God through His church. 

The Church

A New Testament church is an autonomous local congregation of baptized believers with Jesus Christ as the Head, a place where fellow believers can worship, pray, and grow in their relationships in Christ together.


It is the duty of every born again follower and church to make disciples of all people everywhere. It is the command of Christ for every believer to seek to bring the lost to Christ by sharing and proclaiming the gospel of Christ

Baptism &
The Lord's Supper

We believe in baptism by immersion in water as a proclamation of faith and an experience of fellowship with Christ in His death and resurrection. We believe in the observation of the Lord’s Supper as a proclamation of Christ’s work and Kingdom until He returns.
