Welcome

Welcome to Heritage Christian Center online. I hope you will take a look around our web site to find out more about us, and if you live in our area I hope you will make plans soon to attend one of our services.

At Heritage you will find people from many different backgrounds working and growing together. Whether you are young or old, single or married, grew up in church or are just getting started, there is a place for you in our family of faith.

The information you receive and the relationships you cultivate in a local church will influence your life, your family, and your future like nothing else can. Because of this, choosing a pastor and a church home are among the most important decisions you will ever make.

A relaxed and loving environment where people feel welcomed and accepted creates the best opportunity for worship and spiritual growth. Heritage is a place where you can come as you are and experience the love and presence of God without being pushed or pressured.

It is an honor to have you visit our web site today. Remember, we are praying for you and would love to hear from you soon.

Good things coming,
Pastor Mark

Our Vision

Vision -
To sum the vision of Heritage Christian Center up in one sentence it would be:
“To know Him and to make Him known.”

The Word of God is very clear, where there is no vision the people perish—Proverbs 29:18. To fully understand this verse you must consider the word perish to mean not only a loss of one’s life, but as a loss of all the potential that life held. Vision is a must for individuals and organizations desiring to reach their full potential. From this passage we can draw the following conclusion:
“Where there is a vision the people flourish and realize their true potential.”

Jesus gave His church a very specific to do list before He left the earth and returned to the Father. Our vision at Heritage focuses upon accomplishing these things by helping individual believers reach their true potential.

We believe ‘going into all the world and preaching the gospel to every creature’ is the prime directive of the church. Jesus also instructed us to ‘make disciples’. Our vision for a healthy, growing, thriving, local church works hand in hand with our vision for world evangelism. We believe you cannot effectively have one without the other.

Our vision is to grow the Kingdom by growing the church and growing the church by growing the individual families and members that make it up. According to Ephesians 4:16 this growth must be both in number and maturity.

Paul said to Timothy that, “God would have all men to be saved and to come to the knowledge of the Truth.” (I Timothy 2:4) Everything we are currently doing at Heritage is rooted in these two objectives.

How We Began -
Heritage Christian Center began, or as we prefer to say, “Was Born”, on June 7th 1998 in the small showroom of a local cabinet shop. There were seventeen people in attendance that first Sunday morning, any of which are still a part of the church today.

Expecting big things while not despising small beginnings, the congregation quickly outgrew the showroom and constructed a sanctuary in the unfinished warehouse portion of the building that housed the cabinet hop. That warehouse sanctuary was dedicated September 6th 1998 and would be home to Heritage for the next two years.

There was much anticipation all around the world when the calendar rolled over to the year 2000. Those first 12 months of a new millennium were especially important to this growing congregation. On february 14th 2000 we broke ground on our current building and then dedicated it to the glory of God on November 19th of that same year.

We look now to the future with great expectation and a growing sense of divine destiny. We desire to be a church that continues to please Father God in everything we do. We thank him for the miraculous beginning we have experienced while continuing to believe that our best days are still ahead.
