HSBC began in October 2002 as a new church with a new desire to reach the lost, love the unwanted, and to make and mature disciples. We are unique in our area in that we offer something for everyone. Our congregation is made up largely of people who are centered in Baptist theology. Age groups are: 0 - 20 (29.68%); 21-40 (20.17%); 41-60 (28.53%); and Over 60 (21.61%)

Our worship is contemporary, incorporating media and graphics into our services. Our theology is conservative.
