We want to see God glorified in the lives of His people

From all walks of life, we come together to follow Jesus. We believe that walking in faith is best done together. We laugh together, cry together, pray together, love God together, love others together. As we worship and fellowship and serve together, we grow closer to God and to one another. We are a family of believers, and we seek to bring glory to God in all we do.


But it's not all about us. It's about you, too. We have a place just for you, a place where you too can grow in your walk with the Lord. You don't have to follow Christ all by yourself. Together we can be a part of something bigger than all of us. We can be the family of God.


Our Vision

We strive to be the church that Jesus desires us to be. As a gathering of believers in Jesus Christ, we are called to grow to be like Jesus, follow his teaching, and bring others into the family of God. Seeking to grow and serve together in answer to the call of Jesus, we believe he will lead us to be a church that is fulfilling its purpose day by day.

Our Mission

Our mission as Heights Baptist Church is to show the love of God in and to our community so that we might spread the good news of Jesus Christ to those around us. We pray for our community, street by street and home by home. We seek to meet the needs of those in our community. We invest ourselves into our community, all to show God's love to others.

Our Values

We value Scripture as the sole authority for faith and life, and the Gospel of Jesus Christ as the source of a fulfilled and eternal life. We hold dear the joy of worship, where we assemble to exalt the Lord. We treasure Christian fellowship in living our faith together and serving the Lord together. And, we seek Jesus as the center of the family.
