...our basic purpose is to follow Jesus.
The exact date that Pine Hill Baptist Church was established is unknown. The earliest document found is a letter written by a confederate soldier referencing Pine Hill Church. Pine Hill has gone through many changes since that time but one thing remains the same, our basic purpose is to follow Jesus. Two of the most important lessons Jesus ever taught was when he was asked what is the Greatest Commandment, and the last instructions He gave to His disciples known as the Great Commission:
The Great Commandment:
“Jesus said, ‘Love the Lord your God with all your heart, soul, and mind. This is the first and greatest commandment. And the second is like it: Love your neighbor as yourself. All the Law and Prophets hang on these two commandments.’” ~ Matthew 22:36-40
The Great Commission:
“Jesus said, ‘Go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you.’” ~ Matthew 28:19-20
