MISSION & HISTORY.
Hillview Baptist Church in Surprise, Arizona is a young church in the West Valley. We officially launched in October of 2017, and were meeting in an elementary school. Since then God has greatly blessed! We are still young but hopeful for a bright future here in Surprise. We love our God, our church, and our city.
Hillview is located in Northeast Surprise and we desire to reach people all across the West Valley with the life changing truth of the gospel. Whether or not you call Surprise your home, we invite you to be part of what God is doing.
We are all in need of a Savior. We value each person’s ability to influence others for Christ and to pursue God. Romans 3:23; Ephesians 4:11-13.
We intentionally engage in developing and deepening relationships with those in our community. 1 Thessalonians 2:8.
We want to do and say the things Jesus would do and say if He was in our place. Galatians 5:22-25.
PASTOR TIM TRIEBER
Tim and Rebecca Trieber have a passion to reach Surprise and beyond with the gospel of Christ. They believe that they have been called to the area to fulfill the mission that God clearly lays out in His word.
Upon graduating from Bible College in 2005, Tim began serving as Youth Pastor in Santa Clara, CA. In the summer of 2009 Tim and Rebecca were married, and then continued ministering to the next generation. For nearly twelve years Tim invested, mentored, and trained young people from all walks of life.
In 2016 Tim and Rebecca sensed God’s leading in their lives to begin a new church in the Phoenix metro area. After much prayer, Tim resigned his position as Youth Pastor to enter into a new phase of ministry. In January of 2017 Tim, Rebecca, and their five children began calling Surprise their home. They are excited about being part of the community and reaching people with the good news of the gospel.
WHAT WE BELIEVE.
We believe in the verbal, plenary inspiration of the Holy Scriptures of the Old and New Testaments and that they compose the entire Word of God. The Scriptures are inerrant, infallible, and God-breathed; and therefore, are the final authority for faith and life. The sixty-six books of the Old and New Testaments are the complete and divine revelation of God to man.
(II Timothy 3:16-17; II Peter 1:20-21)
We believe in one Triune God, eternally existing in three persons—Father, Son, and Holy Spirit—each coeternal in being, coidentical in nature, coequal in power and glory, and having the same attributes and perfections.
(Deuteronomy 6:4; Matthew 28:19; II Corinthians 13:14; John 14:10, 26)
We believe that the Lord Jesus Christ, the eternal Son of God, became man without ceasing to be God, having been begotten by the Holy Spirit and born of the Virgin Mary in order that He might reveal God and redeem sinful men.
(Isaiah 7:14; 9:6; Luke 1:35; John 1:1-2, 14; II Corinthians 5:19-21; Galatians 4:4-5; Philippians 2:5-8)
We believe that the Lord Jesus Christ accomplished our redemption through His death on the cross as a representative, vicarious, substitutionary sacrifice; and that our justification is made sure by His literal, physical resurrection from the dead.
(Acts 2:18-36; Romans 3:24-25; I Peter 2:24; Ephesians 1:7; I Peter 1:3-5)
We believe that the Lord Jesus Christ ascended to Heaven and is now exalted at the right hand of God where, as our High Priest, He fulfills the ministries of Representative, Intercessor, and Advocate.
(Acts 1:9-10; Hebrews 9:24; 7:25; Romans 8:34; I John 2:1-2)
We believe that the local church is solely made up of born-again persons.
(I Corinthians 12:12-14; II Corinthians 11:2; Ephesians 1:22-23; 5:25-27)
We believe that the establishment and continuance of local churches is clearly taught and defined in the New Testament Scriptures.
(Acts 14:27; 20:17, 28-32; I Timothy 3:1-13; Titus 1:5-11)
We recognize water baptism and the Lord's Supper as the Scriptural ordinances of obedience for the church in this age.
(Matthew 28:19-20; Acts 2:41-42; 18:18; I Corinthians 11:23-26)
We believe that man was created in the image and likeness of God, but that in Adam's sin the human race fell, inherited a sinful nature, and became alienated from God; and, that all men are sinners by birth and by choice, and, of themselves, utterly unable to remedy their lost condition.
(Genesis 1:26-27; Romans 3:22-23; 5:12; 6:23; Ephesians 2:1-3; 4:17-19)
The Eternal State
We believe in the personal, imminent return of Christ Who will rapture His Church prior to the seven-year tribulation period. At the end of the Tribulation, Christ will personally and visibly return with His saints to establish His earthly Messianic Kingdom.
(Psalm 89:3-4; Daniel 2:31-45; Zechariah 14:4-11; I Thessalonians 1:10; 4:13-18; Titus 2:13; Revelation 3:10; 19:11-16; 20:1-6)
We believe in the bodily resurrection of all men—the saved to eternal life, and the unsaved to judgment and everlasting punishment.
(Matthew 25:46; John 5:28-29; 11:25-26; Revelation 20:5-6, 12-13)
