our core values

The Core Values of Heritage shape who we are and give us direction as we move into the future. These Biblical values define us as a congregation and shape us as we seek to grow into our vision of making our relationship with Christ the most important thing in our lives as we live together as a Christian community. These core values help us Connect, Grow and Go as followers of Christ.

  • Hospitality  

“Always be eager to practice hospitality.” - Romans 12: 13 

Intentionally reaching out to welcome and embrace others into the life of our congregation. 

  •  Evangelical Beliefs 

“Defend the faith that God has entrusted once for all time to his holy people.” - Jude 1: 3  

We hold the Bible as our authority for faith and practice and believe the doctrines of the Apostles’ Creed. 

  •  Reaching out in Mission 

“Go and make disciples of all nations” - Matthew 28: 19 

Mission begins at home and extends to all the world. We are called to fulfill the Great Commission of Christ by intentionally seeking to spread the Good News of Christ. 

  • Intentional Discipleship  

“The things you have heard me say in the presence of many witnesses entrust to reliable people who will also be qualified to teach others.” - 2 Timothy 2: 2 

We seek to build fully devoted followers of Jesus Christ through teaching, serving and worship. Our call is to make disciples who know their beliefs and love Christ-like lives. 

  • The Family  

“Impress God’s commands on your children. Talk about them when you’re at home or away, when you lie down or get up. - Deuteronomy 6: 7 

The family is the key to God’s plan. We value ministry to children, youth and adults. We seek to build strong marriages, strong families and a strong church to minister to married and single alike. 

  • Authentic Worship 

“ God is spirit, so those who worship him must worship in spirit and in truth.” - John 4: 24 

Worship is how we weekly acknowledge the Holiness and greatness of God. Whether the format is traditional or contemporary, our goal is to help you truly worship God each week. 

  •  Generosity 

“God loves a person who gives cheerfully.” - 2 Corinthians 9: 7 

We seek to reflect the extravagant and generous love of God through our actions as a church. We express God’s love through kind words, helpful deeds, service to others and monetary sacrifice, as we seek to participate in building God’s Kingdom on Earth.  

  •  Everyone in Ministry 

“As each part does its own special work, it helps the other parts grow, so that the whole body is healthy and growing and full of love.” - Ephesians 4: 16  

God calls every believer to find their meaningful ministry. Helping people find their place of service is a vital part of who we are a church that makes disciples for Jesus Christ.
