We produce passionate followers of Jesus who live supernatural lifestyles.
Core Values of HSSM:
Pursuing God’s Presence
There is nothing more important then the presence of God in our lives. He is Immanuel: God with us. The veil that seperated the presence of God from His people has been torn at the cross. At HSSM we celebrate God’s abiding presence.
Being Transformed by His Word and Spirit
At HSSM we embrace the transforming power of the The Word of God and The Spirit of God. These two are not opposed to each other but are in complete unity and never contradict each other. The Holy Spirit breathing upon the Word of God is the Truth that brings Freedom. It is this Freedom that the world is longing for. As we embrace both the Word of God and the Spirit of God we will truly see Heaven touching Earth.
Living in community
God created us to live in relationship with one another. He has designed us to be inter-dependant upon one another. One single person never carries the full picture of the heart of God. We all carry a portion and together as living stones we form a dwelling place for God on earth in our generation.
Recognizing that the Local Church is the Hope of the World
Jesus is the One who builds His Church. We value and affirm the importance of the local church in the lives of individual Christians, as well as the primary vehicle to share the love and power of Christ to our world. The Heart and Will of Jesus expressed through the believers of a local church family is the Hope and Light of the world.
Basing Identity on God's Fatherhood
God created mankind in His Image and Likeness. Our identity flows from Him. He alone is able to affirm the true identity of individuals. We believe that God has been thinking of each individual alive today from eternity past. He Loves us and the diversity of personalities and Biblical attributes that we see in people alive today are all a reflection of His multi-faceted Glory.
Recognizing Unique, Personal Purpose and Destiny
In the Bible God told Jeremiah that He knew and called him before he was born. We recognize that as much as God gives identity to each person, He also gives purpose. God has a unique Purpose and Destiny for each person and as we focus our hearts to draw near to Him in Obedience we begin to discover what that purpose is.
Modeling Ministry after That of Jesus
Jesus is our model for Life and Ministry. He is the One who modeled life in relationship with The Father and The Holy Spirit. We recognize that we are His body and He says that we will do the same works that He has done even greater. This humbles us as we recognize our complete dependence upon Him.
Extending the Kingdom
The Kingdom of God and His peace is ever growing and is eternal. As more people come to accept Jesus as their King and Savior we see God’s Kingdom grow in our generation. We are committed that the supernatural works of God are not just for our experience as believers but for outreach to see the furtherance of His Kingdom as people encounter His love and power.
