RED HILL EXISTS TO REACH EDWARDSVILLE-GLEN CARBON WITH THE GOSPEL.
In 2014, God opened the door for Rayden to plant a church in Edwardsville, IL. Along with a small group of friends, Rayden and his family moved to Edwardsville, burdened to share The Gospel with Edwardsville-Glen Carbon (Ed-Glen). The core team formed quickly, including families and individuals from Southwest Missouri and Edwardsville, along with several SIUE students.
God was moving in Ed-Glen long before we showed up on the scene. We aren't looking to bring something new, but rather, something ancient. Jesus is the kind, glorious king of the universe, and we want to introduce our city to him.
WHY 'RED HILL'?
Red Hill exists to put redemption on display. Our church is named Red Hill because it communicates two central ideas from Scripture: The blood of Jesus Christ on behalf of sinners, and Christ's call for his people to be a "City on a hill".
