We live every day with a focus on transforming our world by spreading Kingdom Culture one encounter at a time.

Every day, we strive to embody Kingdom Culture in the very fabric of our lives, leaving an indelible mark on everyone we encounter. It transcends mere actions; it's a commitment to being an authentic reflection of Christ in every facet of our existence. Whether interacting with family, friends, colleagues, or strangers, we are called to radiate the character of Christ, consistently displaying love, compassion, and grace.

Our mission is to make every moment an opportunity to exemplify the values of the Kingdom of God, transforming ordinary interactions into extraordinary expressions of faith, kindness, and humility.


Est. in 1945 by founding pastor Harper Rose in 1945 as Apostles’ Doctrine Church. The history of Harrison Hills Church began with Harper Rose and has since then been a testimony of endurance and dedication to the work of the Lord. After a transformative encounter with the message of Jesus Name baptism and the indwelling Spirit in 1932, Harper Rose accepted the truth, was baptized in Jesus' name, and became a devoted preacher. Soon after, in 1945, Harper Rose led the inaugural meeting of Jesus Name Church of Jewett, Ohio, in a renovated barber shop and pool hall with a humble attendance of eight people. Harper Rose not only led the church but also fostered a spirit of giving and missionary commitment, exemplifying the enduring dedication to the work of the Lord that has defined the church’s history. Despite occasional empty pews early on, Harper Rose's dedication and faithfulness to the gospel led to the church's growth, prompting a transition to a new name, Apostles' Doctrine Church. As that growth persisted, the search for a more suitable property began, which then resulted in the purchase of an acre of land just outside Jewett, where Harrison Hills Church stands today. 

Harrison Hills Church was built on the shoulders of great men and women of faith. Through much prayer, dedication, and desire for God’s will many in the surrounding area and abroad have experienced the life changing power of Jesus Christ. We recognize our past as being the strong foundation upon which we stand and our present as a continuing effort to share with the whole world the love of Jesus. HHC currently supports more than 70 ministries worldwide.

Pastor Philip & Jocelyne Spellman began pastoring in 2014.


God Connection

As a church community, we emphasize the significance of daily Bible reading and prayer as crucial components of our "God Connection," guided by passages such as Psalm 119:105 and Jeremiah 29:12-13. Recognizing our relationship with Him as paramount, our commitment to daily dialogue serves as a cornerstone, shaping our identity as a devoted community fostering a transformative bond with the Almighty.

New Birth

We value the New Birth process as an essential foundation for a strong spiritual life. Grounded in biblical principles from passages such as John 3:3-7 and Acts 2:38, the Bible tells us that repentance, baptism in the name of Jesus Christ, and receiving the Holy Spirit are crucial steps in embarking on this transformative journey. Signifying more than a set of beliefs, the New Birth represents the commencement of a new life and marks the initiation of a meaningful journey of faith.


We value fellowship, drawing inspiration from Acts 2:42 and grounded in biblical principles like Proverbs 27:17, which highlights the mutual sharpening of friends. Recognizing ourselves as part of the family of God, united as one body, our commitment to gathering reflects the biblical truth in Hebrews 10:25, fostering spiritual strength and unity essential for our collective journey.


We value forgiveness as a cornerstone of our shared journey, understanding the liberating experience of being forgiven, as emphasized in Ephesians 4:32. Recognizing the interconnected nature highlighted in Matthew 6:14-15, we actively embrace a culture of forgiveness, believing that releasing offenses opens our hands to align with the blessings that God desires for our lives.


We value worship as more than just a Sunday activity; it's a daily commitment to infuse every aspect of our lives with reverence and devotion. Inspired by verses like Romans 12:1 and Colossians 3:17, we aim to present our lives as a continuous offering, honoring and glorifying God in everything we do.
