    I know we do a lot of their songs in our church with the other worship team and in looking online about them, I'm seeing some possible things that might not be quite right with the ministry (possibly be part of the prosperity gospel thing), but I haven't looked into it more yet (I will tonight hopefully). Can you tell me anything that you guys might know about them? Thanks!

    Hills official site.

    My 2ยข worth: Yep, Hillz are saturated in prosperity teaching. Charismatic, couple of times I was silly enough to go years ago they had a bit of "Oo ee, oo ah ah, ting tang, walla walla bing bang", weren't down to standard of some others on those occasions though.

    Their songs range across the whole spectrum of good, bad & ugly. Best of their writers was Geoff Bullock on a good day (Holy One Of God, This Kingdom, etc).

    I know that they're closely associated with the "Third Wave Movement", which is heretical and that their songs are extremely shallow and Biblically lacking.

    I like their music. I really like their songs One Way and SuperHero.
