less focus on religion,
more focus on relationships.

“When Jesus came, He didn’t come building religion, He came building relationships. It is our firm belief that if religion were the answer then the world would be a much different place, because religion is everywhere… there is a relationship however, that will absolutely transform your life. I invite you to come and experience it for yourself. Join us at Hilltop this week and truly experience the power of life changing church.”

-Senior Pastor, Stephen F. Buxton

what others are saying.
Hilltop is a place where all can come together, all nations can come together and worship God in one mind and one accord. It's a place where you are challenged, a place where you don't leave the same way you came in.
Kenton E. 
If you're look for a connection, if you're looking for friends, if you're looking for a spirit-filled community, or a diverse church, an all inclusive church; if you're looking for that real connection, you'll find it at Hilltop Tabernacle.
Nathaniel C. 
"I've been to a lot of churches that talk about God, but you don't get to feel Him. These are places you don't get to experience that peace and joy of the Holy Ghost.  If you've never felt that, you owe it to yourself to come and be in the presence of God."
Lizbeth C. 
"I can honestly say that I have never experienced the power of God's Spirit like I do at Hilltop Tabernacle."
Dolores C.
