ABOUT The Heights
We are a community of people and a church fully awakened to the kingdom of God. We believe that God has placed each of us precisely where we are to share the good news of Jesus with our family, friends, coworkers, and even strangers!
Our mission, vision, & values
Our Mission: Making disciples by taking personal risks to bring the Gospel to every relationship.
At The Heights Church, we believe in making disciples by waking the world up to Jesus. John 10:10 says that Jesus came to give us abundant life, but in order to experience that we must be fully awakened to His glory and purpose for us.
As disciples of Christ, we believe in living out our faith in everything that we do. As a church God has given us a unique set of values to guide everything we do us as we endeavor to serve His purpose and “bring the gospel to all within our reach” or “wake those around us up to the work of Jesus.”
We believe that the Bible, including 39 books of the Old Testament and 27 books of the New Testament, is “breathed out by God” and is without error in its original forms.
God the Father
He is all-powerful, all-knowing, all-loving, and all-wise. He is fatherly in His attitude towards those who are called His children through faith in Jesus Christ.
Jesus Christ, God the Son
Jesus is the image of the invisible God and the exact imprint of His nature. Through Jesus, the fullness of God’s nature and character is revealed. Jesus Christ, in His incarnation, was conceived of the Holy Spirit and born of the Virgin Mary, making Him fully God and fully man.
WHAT IS A DISCIPLE?
We believe a disciple of Jesus Christ understands these 5Gs.
“Favor we didn’t deserve and could not earn.”
Jesus took our sin, our debts, our brokenness upon Himself through the cross and, now, through His grace, we have full life in Jesus. We can approach God with confidence knowing that Jesus’ death has freed us and made us alive with Christ.
But God shows His love for us in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us. Since, therefore, we have now been justified by his blood, much more shall we be saved by Him from the wrath of God.
“We’re better together”
You and I cannot become all that we are called to be on our own. We must be intentional to gather together.
Why We Gather
And let us consider how to stir up one another to love and good works, not neglecting to meet together, as is the habit of some, but encouraging one another, and all the more as you see the Day drawing near.
How We Gather
- Worship Service
- Bible Fellowship
- R3 Groups
“Healthy things grow.”
God desires for us to grow spiritually, to be transformed. One of the significant ways we grow spiritually is through personal Bible study and prayer.
Abide in me, and I in you. As the branch cannot bear fruit by itself, unless it abides in the vine, neither can you, unless you abide in me. I am the vine; you are the branches. Whoever abides in me and I in him, he it is that bears much fruit, for apart from me you can do nothing.
Be intentional in spending time (“abiding”) in God’s Word by:
- Choosing a Time
- Choosing a Place
- Choosing a Plan
“Generosity changes you and others.”
We have all been given Time, Talents, and Treasures that we are called to use for God and His Kingdom. The moment we surrendered to Jesus, the Holy Spirit entered our lives and brought along spiritual gifts that He has equipped us with supernaturally. God has called us to use those gifts to benefit other and to experience the joy of making a difference.
2 Corinthians 9:6-7
The point is this: whoever sows sparingly will also reap sparingly, and whoever sows bountifully will also reap bountifully. Each one must give as he has decided in his heart, not reluctantly or under compulsion, for God loves a cheerful giver.
“You were created on purpose for a purpose.”
The church wasn’t created by Jesus to just be a building. He went out to the people, where they were, and modeled missional living. We must do the same. Some people will never step foot into a church unless we go out and model Christ to them.
Then Jesus came to them and said, “All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all that I have commanded you. And behold, I am with you always, to the end of the age.
