Heritage CRC is a community of Christ followers serving Him, His people, and His world.
G God-honoring worship happens when we gather as a body with our Lord. Our goal is to participate in conversation with Him. As God speaks His love, His will, and His Word, we respond in adoration, confession, and commitment.
L Lives transformed by God’s grace are enriched by continual communication with Him. Our goal is that we each become more Christ-like through a personal relationship with our Lord and Savior.
O Outreach to our community and our world through humble service is our privilege. Our goal is to follow the servant leadership of our Lord Jesus Christ in service to the needy in our community and our world.
R Relevant application of unchanging, Biblical truth to our ever-changing world is our calling. Our goal is to proclaim the freedom, power, and peace that come when we live according to God’s design.
I Infallible, divinely inspired, and authoritative, the Word of God is our foundation. Our goal is to become saturated with this truth through proclamation of the Word, study, meditation, and prayer so that we may mature in faith and life.
F Fellowship that provides Christ-like hospitality, accountability and support is necessary for authentic community. Our goal is to reach out and support each other in love, nurturing and honoring each other as brothers and sisters in Christ.
Y Young people are precious and gifted members of the body of Christ and of our congregation. Our goal is to teach them the truths of Scripture, nurture their faith, and prepare them to live in service to God.
What We Believe
The Lord our God is one, perfect in love and holiness, righteous in all His ways, and sovereign over all (Deut. 6:4).
The Lord our God exists eternally in all three persons of the Trinity: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit (John 1:1, Acts 5:3-4, Mt. 28:19).
Both the Old and New Testaments of the Bible are divinely inspired, truthful, authoritative, the only written Word of God, without error, and the only infallible rule for faith and practice (2 Tim. 3:16).
After God created man in His image, Adam sinned and consequently experienced both physical and spiritual death, which is separation from God. As a result, all people are born with a sinful nature and, apart from Jesus Christ, are eternally lost.
Jesus Christ is the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through Him (John 14.6).
Jesus Christ is the head of the Church, which is His body (Eph. 5:23).
God gives spiritual gifts to each and every believer that are to be used for the common good (1 Cor. 12:7). As each member of the body of Christ serves in a manner that honors Christ and harmonizes with his or her spiritual gifts, the Church is built up in love (Eph. 4:1-16).
The Holy Spirit convicts people of sin (John 16:8-11), regenerates (Ti. 3:5) and indwells (1 Cor. 6:19) those who repent and believe, and energizes believers to witness and serve with love and power (Acts 1:8, 1 Cor. 12.7-11).
Jesus commands us to make disciples of all nations (Mt. 28:16-20).
Jesus Christ will come again (Acts 1:11)!
