Our Mission
Mercy Hill Church exists to make a measurable impact for Jesus in Rochester, Southeastern Minnesota and the world.
Our Core Values
everyone matters.
At Mercy Hill, you and your family matter. You were important enough for Jesus to die for, therefore you are important enough to be loved and accepted by your church family.
everyone forgives.
At Mercy Hill, we walk in forgiveness and love towards each other. This world is a tough and unforgiving place, therefore your church should provide a compassionate and merciful community for you to be a part of.
everyone grows.
At Mercy Hill, everyone is called to impact their world for Jesus. Therefore, we will equip you to grow in your faith and to live an extraordinary life for God.
We would love to have you visit us for one of these special events and services.
