What do you believe?
Declaration of Faith
-In the verbal inspiration of the Bible.
-In one God eternally existing in three persons; namely, the Father, Son, and Holy Ghost.
-That Jesus Christ is the only begotten Son of the Father, conceived of the Holy Ghost, and born of the Virgin Mary. That Jesus was crucified, buried, and raised from the dead. That He ascended to heaven and is today at the right hand of the Father as the Intercessor.
-That all have sinned and come short of the glory of God and that repentance is commanded of God for all and necessary for forgiveness of sins.
-That justification, regeneration, and the new birth are wrought by faith in the blood of Jesus Christ.
-In sanctification subsequent to the new birth, through faith in the blood of Christ; through the Word, and by the Holy Ghost.
-Holiness to be God’s standard of living for His people.
-In the baptism with the Holy Ghost subsequent to a clean heart.
-In speaking with other tongues as the Spirit gives utterance and that it is the initial evidence of the baptism of the Holy Ghost.
-In water baptism by immersion, and all who repent should be baptized in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost.
-Divine healing is provided for all in the atonement.
-In the Lord’s Supper and washing of the saints’ feet.
-In the premillennial second coming of Jesus. First, to resurrect the righteous dead and to catch away the living saints to Him in the air. Second, to reign on the earth a thousand years.
-In the bodily resurrection; eternal life for the righteous, and eternal punishment for the wicked.
What is your service format?
We provide an inviting and friendly atmosphere at Heritage. You will always hear a blend of contemporary worship interspersed with melodic hymns. We encourage the congregation to sing and participate in worship. Furthermore, we desire to provide a Christ-centered message that is both practical and relevant to your everyday life.
How do I fit in?
We will provide you with the opportunity and the resources to grow in your faith and understanding of God’s plan for your life. You can become as involved as you choose. Our focus is becoming a church where everyone can fit in even though we are all different.
What do I need to wear?
Come as you are. We are interested in you – not your wardrobe. Many in our congregation wear jeans, some dress up a bit more, but overall we are casual in our dress.
What about my children?
We provide Worship Experiences and Small groups for all ages of children during the weekly schedule.
Age Appropriate classes will be staffed with competent and caring leaders during the 10:00am hour on Sunday Mornings as well as the 6:30pm small groups time on Wednesday nights. Also on Wednesday Nights, Geoffrey Taylor, will lead a time of Worship and Bible exploration for all teens at 6:30pm. Of course, your children are always welcome to join you for worship in the auditorium.
If I visit, will I be singled out as a guest?
We will take a moment to say “welcome” to our guests, but nothing will be done that would embarrass you. For example, you will not be asked to stand or to say anything or otherwise be made to feel uncomfortable.
Will I be asked for money?
No. We do not harass our people for money and we would certainly not ask a newcomer to contribute financially to our ministry. Any offerings you may give are completely your decision.
Will I be contacted or placed on a mailing list?
The pastor customarily contacts any first-time guests to thank them for attending; however, any further contact would be up to you. You will be given a connect card; if you choose to fill it out you will notice that there will be a place on the card on which you can note if you would like further contact. The connect card is our way to pray for you by name.
