Indian Hills Community Church (Lincoln, NE) – Senior Pastor

 

The Big Picture

Indian Hills Community Church (ihcc.org) is seeking a Senior Pastor who will lead the ministry, provide leadership in maintaining the doctrines of the church and preach the Word of God. 

 

The Church

Indian Hills Community Church (600 pre-Covid) is a non-denominational, Bible-teaching church in Lincoln, Nebraska, which began as a Bible study in 1959. Instruction from God’s Word is the heart of Indian Hills Community Church. Every program, class and activity throughout the week is designed to reach the lost and encourage spiritual growth through the teaching of the Word. Our worship services consist of a half hour of praise and worship music and an hour of teaching from the Scriptures.

In addition to what is stated in our Statement of Faith, we hold the following theological positions:

Soteriology  · Four-Point Calvinist · We believe that limited atonement is not a biblical doctrine · Lordship · We believe that when a person is truly justified, they become a new creation, and this is evidenced by spiritual fruitfulness.

Eschatology ·  Futurist ·  Dispensational

  •  We believe that the church and Israel are distinct
  •  We believe there will be a literal earthly kingdom for Israel
  •  We believe in a pretribulational rapture
  •  We believe in grammatical-historical interpretation of all biblical

    passages including prophetic passages

Church Government · We believe the form of church government that best aligns with Scripture is a plurality of elders
