There are many things about Mars Hill that I am grateful for; primarily because the preaching is done in a way that is easy to understand - not too heady for a non-believer or new Christian, but not "dumbed down" for a mature believer. Contrary to what some people may assume, Pastor Mark continually recommends that the congregation "check his work" by spending time in the Word, not just taking 'his word' for what it says. Additionally, the church has opted to do away with the sermon notes each week so that attenders are able to follow along in the Bibles rather than use the 'cheat sheets' that used to be provided. Thousands of people have become saved as God opens their hearts & ears to this preaching. God is doing great things at this church!
