Disciple Church was planted by Redemption Hill Church located in Whittier CA during the spring of 2018. Our story is intimately connected to the history of our sending church.
In 1959, a group of young couples and families from Montebello First Baptist Church answered God’s call and planted Whittier Hills Baptist Church to be a gospel witness to their local community. God began to move and people’s lives were changed as the young church began to grow. Over the years, Whittier Hills Baptist was blessed with growth in people, facilities, and gospel impact. Many hundreds of people came to know the saving work of Jesus both locally and around the world through partnering in global missions.
OUR MULTI-SITE JOURNEY
In 2010, Whittier Hills Baptist Church prayed and fasted about launching their first satellite campus in the Uptown Whittier community. While this was a new venture of multiplication, it was a natural extension of a passion to reach people with Jesus stemming all the way back to our church’s founding. Whittier Hills Baptist began to organize itself as a multi-site church in the spring of 2011 when the new Uptown Whittier campus was officially launched. This strategy continued and in 2014, Whittier Hills Baptist sent out a team to start a new campus in the city of La Habra. It was after this that Whittier Hills Baptist Church changed their name to Redemption Hill Church. Redemption Hill felt strongly that adopting the strategy of being a multi-site church would allow us to:
REACH more people than we otherwise would.
RAISE more leaders than we otherwise could.
REDEEM the opportunities God has given us.
After seven years of life and gospel ministry together, the leaders at all campuses of the church sensed that God had grown the Uptown congregation enough to be able to continue its own passionate ministry as a separate daughter church. After a time of commissioning and prayer together, Disciple Church was launched out as a church plant on March 1st, 2018, and since then has sought to be a faithful gospel witness by supporting the work of continued church planting both locally and globally.
