2 Corinthians 3:18: "But we all, with unveiled face, behold as in a mirror the glory of the Lord and are transformed into the same image from glory to glory just as by the Spirit of the Lord." Individually and corporately, we are created to reflect God's glory, and by beholding Him we become like Him. God raised up this church for His magnificence, and we, through our actions and attitudes display to the world that God is actively involved in the affairs of men.
The Bible is central to what we do at Heritage. It is an inexhaustible source of truth and knowledge of God. Knowing the Scriptures is imperative to knowing God. A week never goes by where we don’t dig deep into God’s Word and renew our minds, feed our souls and rejoice the heart with God's promises.
A family heritage is the idea that life is shared and built on the strength of many individuals and families who are committed to the same cause, Jesus Christ. For generations people have rooted themselves together in community where children feel safe, singles find companionship, parents take comfort in one another's counsel and the elderly are honored and protected. The birth of children; the celebration of significant events and the sorrow of death or loss enables communities to laugh and cry together. This is what enables Heritage to live up to its name and glorify God together.
Worship is essential to know God, and a foundational pillar of our church. It enhances our fellowship, opens the door to prayer and ministry to one another, and ultimately, we grow in the faith of Jesus Christ. We love worship because it helps us connect with the infinite worth of God, and be transformed by Him. However, We do not exist to serve ourselves. We build each other up so that we can go out into our world and make an impact with the love and truth of the Gospel message of Jesus Christ.
Every endeavor of every human being is in the honor and glory of someone or something, and like grass, it will all someday wilt and disappear. But the smallest things done in the name of Jesus Christ will be remembered and endure forever. Thus, all that we do, we do it for the glory of God and in the name of Jesus Christ.
