At HHBC we are committed to the systematic, verse-by-verse, expositional preaching of God’s Word. We practice teaching and preaching Scripture as they were given: as whole books, letters, etc.
SUFFICIENCY OF SCRIPTURE
As part of Sola Scriptura, we affirm that the Bible contains all that we need for determining what we must believe and how we are to live before God. No other source of special revelation is required for the believer to be fully equipped to live the Christian life. - 2 Tim 3:16-17
GOD'S SOVEREIGNTY IN SALVATION
Scripture teaches that no one seeks God apart from the Holy Spirit drawing them to repent and place their faith in Christ.
We are called to proclaim the gospel of Jesus Christ to every man, woman, and child. Because God is preparing His elect for salvation, we have great hope and encouragement in our evangelism.
CHURCH DISCIPLINE AND RESTORATION
God has called His church to walk in purity, and in a manner that conforms to His Word. In accordance with Matthew 18, our aim of any Church discipline is the loving restoration of the person back into fellowship.
HHBC functions according to the clear biblical teaching which mandates the local church be led by men of exceptional character and qualities as stipulated in 1 Timothy 3, and Titus 1. These are known as Elders and Deacons. The qualifications for men as Elder and Deacon are the same with the exception of an Elder capacity to teach. HHBC affirms that leadership by a plurality of Elders is the closest model to biblical fidelity.
We teach that all counseling is a theological discipline and is approached with the Bible as our sole roadmap for soul care. We counsel in accordance with the principles set forth by the ACBC – The Association of Certified Biblical Counselors.

Scripture teaches that God created the universe in 6 literal twenty-four-hour days (yom), and He created it by His spoken word ex nihilo (“out of nothing”). We deny any form of day-age, gap, or evolutionary theories
