Church of the Nazarene theologian. Educated at Oberlin College and the Yale Divinity School, Hills was for twenty years the pastor of Congregational churches at Ravenna, Ohio; Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania; and Springfield, Missouri. At Oberlin, Hills became greatly interested in Christian holiness through the influence of Charles G. Finney and during his later pastorates increasingly identified with the Holiness Movement. He labored for several years as an evangelist and during this period professed the Holiness Movement’s cardinal experience of “entire sanctification.”

Hills was subsequently founding president of three Wesleyan-Holiness colleges: Texas Holiness University (Greenville, Texas), now part of Southern Nazarene University (Bethany, Oklahoma); Central Holiness College in Iowa; and Illinois (now Olivet) Nazarene University. He also taught theology at Asbury College and Bethany Nazarene College but was associated longest with Pasadena College (Nazarene) in California, where he taught from 1916 until 1932. Hills wrote nearly thirty books, including biographies of leaders in the Holiness and temperance reform movements. The most notable are Holiness and Power (1897), a widely influential book in the Holiness Movement of its day, and Fundamental Christian Theology, 2 vols. (1931), the first Nazarene systematic theology.
