Your Aliso Viejo Church Home
Join us on Sunday mornings for either a contemporary (9:15am) or traditional (11:00am) worship service as we worship God through the use of music and hear a Bible Based sermon that aims to teach correct doctrine while challenging believers to live their lives for God.
More About Us
Grace Hills Church is a multi-generational church where our youngest person is 13 months old and our oldest person is 102 years young!
We are a family of believers where you’ll feel welcomed and comfortable right from the moment you walk in the door. We connect with one another weekly, love one another unconditionally, and serve one another sacrificially; this is the norm, not the exception. We gather on Sundays in our worship services to love and honor Christ. We meet throughout the week in Life Groups to grow in Christ. We scatter during the week to serve and talk about Christ.
If one was to ask, “What’s your sweet spot as a church?”, it would be the way we love and care for one another. As the three examples in the previous question show, our church enjoys the blessings that come from ministering to each other. No one is a stranger at Grace Hills. The guest on Sunday will be befriended by many during our meet and greet time in each service and during our fellowship time between services. For the member or regular attender, they truly feel at home here. As one mom put it, “Sunday mornings are a time when I can sit back in a quiet place and worship. My kids are well taken care of in the nursery and in Sunday School while learning the Gospel. Our daughter will bring up what she learned in Sunday School during our dinner conversation and it makes our hearts soar. Sunday mornings are a win-win for our family!”

These are the essentials that we believe and hold onto.
God is the creator and ruler of the universe. God has eternally existed in three persons; the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit. These three are co-equal and are one God. (Genesis 1:1; Psalm 90:2; Isaiah 44:6; Matthew 28:19; Mark 12:29; Acts 5:3-4; II Corinthians 13:14; I Peter 1:2)
Jesus Christ is the Son of God. He is co-equal with the Father. Jesus was born of a virgin and lived a sinless human life and offered Himself as the perfect sacrifice for the sins of all people by dying on the cross. He arose from the dead after three days to demonstrate His power over sin and death. He ascended to Heaven’s glory and one day will return to earth to reign as King of kings and Lord of lords. (Isaiah 9:6; Matthew 1:18-23; Luke 1:26-35; John 1:1-5; 8:54-58; 10:30-38, 14:6-11; Acts 1:9-11; Romans 1:3-4, 3:21-26; I Corinthians 15:3-4; II Corinthians 5:21; Colossians 1:15-20; I Timothy 6:14-15; Titus 2:13; Hebrews 1:2-3, 4:14-15; I John 2:1-2)
The Holy Spirit is co-equal with the Father and the Son of God. He is present in the world to make people aware of their need for salvation in Jesus Christ. He also indwells every believer from the moment they trust in Jesus Christ. The Holy Spirit provides the Christian with power for living and the ability to understand spiritual truth, gives spiritual gifts, and guides the believer in what is right. As believers, we seek to live under His control each day. (John 14:16-17, 26, 16:7-15; Acts 1:8, 5:3-4; Romans 8:9; I Corinthians 2:9-13, 3:16, 12:1-11, 13; Galatians 5:16-25; Ephesians 1:13-14, 5:18; II Timothy 1:14)
The Bible is God’s inspired, infallible, inerrant Word. It was written by human authors under the supernatural guidance of the Holy Spirit. It is the supreme source of truth and authority for Christian belief and living. (Psalm 119:105-160; Proverbs 30:5; Luke 24:27;
Acts 17:2-3; I Thessalonians 2:13; II Timothy 3:16-17; Hebrews 4:12; II Peter 1:20-21)
People are created in the spiritual image of God to be like Him in character. We are the crowning glory of God’s creation. However, all of us disobey God in our attitudes and actions, which the Bible calls ‘sin’. Sin separates us from God and exposes us to God’s just wrath. As a result of sin we are in desperate need of God’s redeeming work in Christ. (Genesis 1:26-27; Psalm 8:3-6; 51:1-12;
Isaiah 53:6; 59:1-2, 64:6; Romans 1:18-25, 3:10-11, 21-16; Ephesians 2:1-5)
We are saved only by God’s sovereign grace. Salvation is God’s free gift to us, which we must accept by true and sincere faith. No one can ‘earn’ salvation by self-improvement or good works. Salvation is possible only by trusting in the Lord Jesus Christ, who died on the cross and shed His blood for our sins. Eternal life begins the moment anyone receives Jesus Christ into their life by faith as Lord and Savior. Once saved, all of the redeemed are kept by God’s power and are thus secure in Christ forever. (John 1:12-13, 3:16, 6:44,47, 17:3; Romans 3:21-24, 3:27-28; 5:1-2, 6:23; 8:29-30, 9:14-18; Galatians 2:16, 3:26; Ephesians 1:3-8, 1:11, 2:8-9; Philippians 1:6;
People were created by God to live forever. We will either live eternally separated from God because of our sin, or we will live eternally with God because we have received salvation through Jesus Christ. Hell is eternal separation from God. Heaven is to live in eternal union with God. We believe that heaven and hell are real places for eternal existence. (Matthew 25:31-46; Luke 16:19-26, 20:34-38; John 3:16, 5:28-29, 11:25-26, 14:1-3; Romans 6:23; I Corinthians 2:9; Revelation 20:11-21:8, 21:22-22:5)
Every believer can approach God and can have a personal relationship with God without the necessity of a human priest. All of God’s people are invited and commanded to engage in the ministry for which God has gifted them in order to build up and strengthen the church. God is sovereign in the giving of spiritual gifts. The baptism of the Holy Spirit occurs at conversion when the believer joins the body of Christ. Particular spiritual gifts are neither essential, nor prove the presence of the Holy Spirit, nor necessarily indicate deep spiritual experience. (John 4;21-24; I Corinthians 12:7,11,13; Ephesians 2:10, 4:7, 11-12; I Timothy 2:5;
Hebrews 4:14-16; I Peter 2:9, 4:10-11)
Jesus is now in heaven preparing a place for those who believe in Him. He will return one day to judge the world and to establish His kingdom. (Matthew 25:31-46; John 5:24-29, 14;1-3; Acts 1;10-11; II Corinthians 5:10; I Thessalonians 4:13-18, II Thessalonians 1:7-10;
