Mission

The mission of Heritage Baptist Church is set forth as follows:

1. The preaching of the glorious Gospel of Christ as a soul-saving institution;

2. The administration of the two ordinances of the New Testament church;

3. The promotion of spiritual growth of its members;

4. The licensing and ordaining of qualified men of this congregation for full time Christian service as pastors of churches, whose doctrinal position is in accordance with the Word of God and this church;

5. The establishment of Christian education and evangelization of the world as a missionary-minded, evangelistically alive, unaffiliated, independent, fundamental, Bible-believing Baptist church.

The covenant by which this church exists as a distinct body, and which every member is to affirm, is as follows:

Having been led, as we believe, by the Holy Spirit of God, to receive the Lord Jesus Christ as our personal Savior from sin, and on the profession of our faith, having been baptized in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost, we do now in the presence of God and this assembly, most solemnly and joyfully enter into covenant with one another, as one body in Christ.

We engage therefore, by the aid of the Holy Spirit, to walk together in Christian love, to strive for the advancement of this church in knowledge, holiness, and comfort; to promote its prosperity and spirituality; to sustain its worship, ordinances, discipline, and doctrines; to give it a sacred preeminence over all institutions of human origin; to contribute cheerfully and regularly to the support of the ministry, the expenses of this church, the relief of the poor, and the evangelization of all peoples.

We also engage to maintain personal and family devotions; to educate our children in the Word of God, bringing them up in the nurture and admonition of the Lord; to walk circumspectly in the world, denying ungodliness and worldly lusts; to be just in our dealings, faithful in our engagements, and exemplary in our deportment; to avoid tattling and backbiting, and excessive anger; to abstain from the sale and/or use of intoxicating drink as a beverage, from the sale and/or use of non-prescription drugs; and to be zealous in our efforts to promote the cause of Christ.

We further engage to watch over one another in brotherly love, to remember each other in prayer,  to aid each other in sickness and distress; to cultivate Christian sympathy in feeling, and courtesy in speech; to be slow to take offense, but always ready for reconciliation, and mindful of the rule of our Savior - to secure it without delay. 

We further engage that we will endeavor, by example and effort, to win souls to Jesus Christ; and through life, amidst its multiplied trials and joys, will seek to live to the glory of Him who hath called us out of darkness into His marvelous light. 

We moreover engage that, when we remove ourselves from this church, we will, as soon as possible, unite with some other church where we can carry out the spirit of this covenant and the principles of God's Word.


Monthly Devotion

“It is of the LORD’S mercies that we are not consumed, because his compassions fail not.
“They are new every morning: great is thy faithfulness.” - Lamentations 3:22-23

It is fascinating to watch and quite strange how special days cause us to act or react in different ways than what we do the other parts of the year. We have entered a new calendar year: many spend time on reflecting what was or wasn’t accomplished in the past and make various types of promises to be a different type of people for this ‘new’ year. It seems to be the time for setting goals we hope to achieve.

If you read the scriptures above you will notice that there is a pause of every morning to reflect on Someone and something far more glorious and divine than the once a year mechanical aspirations to accomplish what we say we will set out to do - The mercies of the LORD! How many days did last year include? That’s how many days His mercies came to us each morning, because GREAT IS HIS FAITHFULNESS! Whatever yesterday held for us individually, whatever they held for us as a local church- today, and every morning His mercies to us are not refurbished, but brand new. Unwrapped, Bright, All Sufficient for our every need, all the day, all the night.

We have such a wonderful God, a Living Savior, and He is interested in every aspect of every action, inaction or thought. There is nothing that His mercy cannot meet for you. There should be therefore, no despair or let down. Romans 8:37, correctly says:
“ . . . We are more than conquerors through him that loved us.” I pray that we are as persuaded as Paul was in the remaining two verses of chapter eight. It is medicine for our souls and strength to carry forth for Him Who loved us!
