To be a life-giving community of Christ followers who gather, grow, give & go to see hearts and homes awakened to the Love of GOD.
The first step of believing and following Christ. We believe Life happens when we gather. We gather each Sunday at 11:00am for a time of worship and teaching.
Growing happens when we gather. Christ centered teaching and encouragement through practical, biblical teaching is the foundation for growth at Heartland. God has a wonderful plan to bless us by helping us grow to become like Jesus in every way. It's all about Him!
Giving is the evidence of growth in the Christian life. It demonstrates our sufficiency in God rather than self. We live to be generous with our time, money and opportunities for God's Kingdom.
Going is about sharing who God is and what He's doing with those who don't know Him. We "go" by serving others.
Pastor Ben & Melissa McBride
Pastor Ben and Melissa are the founding pastors of Heartland Church. They are passionate about helping people live fully alive and awakened to God's love and power in their lives.
What We Believe
We believe the Bible is God’s Word. It is accurate, authoritative and applicable to our everyday lives.
We believe in one eternal God who is the Creator of all things. He exists in three Persons: God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit.
The Nature of God
He is totally loving and completely holy.
The Divinity of Christ
The Lord Jesus Christ is both God and man and is the only one who can reconcile us to God.
Each time we partake of communion we remember Jesus lived a sinless and exemplary life, died on the cross in our place, and rose again to prove His victory and empower us for life.
The Sin of Man
We believe sin has separated each of us from God and His purpose for our lives. In order to receive forgiveness we must repent of our sins, believe in Jesus Christ and submit to His will for our lives.
God wants to heal and transform us so that we can live healthy and powerful lives in order to help others more effectively.
Baptism in Water & the Holy Spirit
In order to live the holy, fruitful, and power-filled lives God intends for us, we need to be baptized in water, set our mind on Him and His purpose, and be filled with the power of the Holy Spirit.
Our Hope (The Return of Christ)
We believe the Lord Jesus Christ is coming back again as He promised and will rule and reign on this earth. History will conclude as the wicked are judged and the righteous enter a new heaven and a new earth.
