About Hill Country Bible Church Austin
Our vision is that every man, woman, and child in Greater Austin has the chance to experience the life-changing reality of Jesus Christ because they hear the gospel from the lips of someone at a Hill Country Bible Church.
In carrying out our vision, we have planted 23 churches since 1996 and established an ongoing residency to train church planters.
We launched our first multi-site campus in 2009 in the Steiner Ranch community of Austin; we are one church in two locations (Lakeline Campus and Steiner Ranch Campus). We are currently laying down the ground work for our Brushy Creek Campus that is expected
to launch in January 2015.
We place a high value on small groups where we seek to connect relationally, grow spiritually and reach others. Over 60% of our congregation is currently engaged in small group community, with a goal to have 75% by 2015-16.
We are committed to unity among churches and to engaging the Church of Jesus Christ in citywide issues. We have numerous strategic partnerships with churches and other organizations throughout the city to promote this goal.
