HPCC is a part of a greater network of churches in The Brethren Church denomination. Our beliefs are rooted in the anabaptist tradition, are orthodox in doctrine, and socially-minded in practice.

Brethren have asserted from their beginnings that believers must hold correct doctrinal beliefs and also demonstrate visibly the new life which they have received in Christ Jesus. Thus doctrine is no mere exercise of the mind, but a declaration through the entire life that Jesus Christ is Lord. For this reason Brethren life, like Brethren belief, centers on Jesus Christ.
God has made available to us in Christ and the Spirit, in Scripture and the church, all the resources needed to live the life of faith. By His life Christ exemplified the walk to which we are called; by His death He made possible renewed fellowship with the Father; by His resurrection He revealed the power that is available to us. The Holy Spirit now enables us as God’s children to live in obedience to Scripture and grow in spiritual maturity. Scripture provides the teaching and example of Jesus and the apostles which we are to follow as a loving response to God and as a means of glorifying Him. The church is the gathered community which nurtures believers in the life of faith. Using these resources, we can demonstrate the new birth through new behavior. What we are by faith in Christ we are to become by faithfulness to our Lord.
