Our History

Hillcrest Baptist Church began with a vision from the Ten Mile Baptist Church in Lonsdale, Arkansas, to plant a New Testament church in the North Metro Atlanta area.   In 1990, through the efforts of like-minded churches in the American Baptist Association, with a heart for people who needed to hear the gospel, and a love for Jesus, our founding Pastor, Paul W. Vance, and his wife Susan, along with their young son josh, moved to Cherokee County to establish Hillcrest mission. The goal and plan was simple, yet Biblical—invade the culture and build an autonomous church that would inspire the community around it for the honor and glory of God. The mission experienced amazing growth, tremendous blessings, and far-reaching influence from its first location in the Vance home in Woodstock to its current location on Woodstock Road in Acworth. The church grew spiritually and in numbers; in 1998 it was officially organized as  Hillcrest Baptist Church. Now hundreds of members strong led by Pastor Mike Maxwell and Music Pastor Matt Fallin, Hillcrest truly has become “A Light set upon a hill…” in our community.


Our church is a LIVING body—we are not an organization but an organism that allows us to SHINE in the Light of Jesus Christ. Our Church is a GROWING Body—we are active in our faith, “feeding” on sound truths found in God’s Word and as a growing church, our Faith allows us to Share the Love of Jesus Christ in our community and around the world. Our church has a Unique Heritage, Unique Heart, and Unique Harmony.


Unique Heritage— we are strong in heritage, surrounded by love, strengthened in our health, and sound in our teaching. Hillcrest has a wonderful tradition of community. Although we treasure our heritage, we enjoy a beautiful freedom of worship and expression.


The Apostle Paul wrote, “…the whole body, joined and knit together by what every joint supplies, according to the effective working by which every individual does its share, causes growth of the body for the edifying of itself in love.” (Ephesians 4:16)


Unique Heart—from the moment you walk in our doors at Hillcrest you will feel a sense of family, and a heart of love, compassion, and sincerity for the work of the Lord and for each other.


Unique Harmony—as a church, we are growing together in our love for the Lord and the love for those who need the grace of God. We invite you to visit us personally. You will feel at home and like what you find here at Hillcrest as you enjoy a blended worship experience for all ages and cultures.
