More Beliefs and Resources

We believe the gospel message teaches us that we are not made right with God through our obedience to
His commands (our works)
, but we obey His commands because we have been made right with God through faith in Jesus Christ (the gift of grace). The order is essential to understand true Christianity. If we cannot work our way into a right relationship with God, how then can we be saved? By believing in Jesus and calling on His name.

Church Planting

Cityview Bible Church was planted in Round Rock, TX in September 2007 as part of a movement of churches who desire to impact Greater Austin with the gospel of Jesus Christ. The first Hill Country Bible Church was started in 1986 as one church of 17 believers and has grown into a movement of thousands of growing disciples engaged in over 25 vibrant churches throughout Greater Austin and beyond.

Our association of churches has a three-pronged strategy to reach the millions of men, women, and children who who call Greater Austin their home:

  1. Individual Responsibility: multiplying disciples
  2. Corporate Responsibility: planting spiritually vibrant and strategically located churches
  3. Regional Responsibility: partnering with like-minded ministries. Our church has participated in church-planting since 2009.
