About Us

Orchard Hill is an inter-denominational Christian church in the Pittsburgh area where everyone is welcome.  Whether you are a follower of Jesus Christ or you are still considering if God has a place in your life, Orchard Hill is a community where you can explore faith and the reality of Jesus Christ.

Our Vision and Mission

Our Vision is to become a contemporary biblical community, which is culturally relevant and theologically pure.

Our Mission is helping people find and follow Jesus Christ.

What We Believe

We believe the Bible is the inspired Word of God and our final authority on any issue to which it speaks.

We believe there is one God who exists as a trinity: Father, Son (Jesus Christ), and the Holy Spirit.  

We believe humans are born sinful and condemned and cannot save themselves. Humans have a soul that will live eternally either with perfect joy in heaven or complete despair in hell.

We believe Jesus Christ is the only one who can save us by being our substitute: He lived the perfect life that we are unable to live and He died the death that we deserve to die.

We believe the church is God's chosen means to accomplish His work in the world and the followers of Jesus Christ should be the embodiment of Jesus in and to the world.

We believe Jesus will come again to establish and reign in a new heaven and a new earth.

We believe God rules sovereignly over the universe and human affairs and we are graciously reformed, emphasizing the work of God in salvation. We are Gospel-centered emphasizing that a Christian’s standing is based not on what we do but on what Jesus Christ has done.
