Plan of Salvation

Know that we are a sinner:
Romans 3:10 "As it is written, There is none righteous, no, not one:”
Romans 3:23 "For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God;”

Know that the penalty for our sin is death:
Romans 6:23a “For the wages of sin is death;"
But it doesn’t stop there, the rest of that verse says: "but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.”

Know who paid the penalty for our sin:
Romans 5:8 "But God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us.”
Isaiah 53:6 “All we like sheep have gone astray; we have turned every one to his own way; and the LORD hath laid on him the iniquity of us all.”

Know how to receive this gift:
John 1:12 “But as many as received him, to them gave he power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on his name.”
Ephesians 2:8-9 “For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God: Not of works, lest any man should boast.”
Romans 10:13, “For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved.”

Know that after we are saved, we become a new person:
2 Corinthians 5:17 "Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new.”
Ephesians 2:10 “For we are his workmanship, created in Christ Jesus unto good works, which God hath before ordained that we should walk in them.”

WELCOME

"Selah"



We are:

Fundamental

 

Confident belief in the inerrant and literal interpretation of the Bible and that is is as relevant today as the day it was written. 

It is the sole authority for all matters of faith and its practice, as well as for daily living.


Bible Preaching & Teaching

 

Our only perfect source of revelation in regard to spiritual truth, and our textbook.

We preach and teach from the Bible in an expository way, that is, books or teachings of the Bible are read, explained according to the everyday meaning of the words unless the context clearly indicates otherwise.

We use the Kings James Version of the Bible, believing it to be the translation for English speaking peoples.


Christ Centered

 

As our all sufficient savior, we preach, teach and counsel only that which emanates from Him in His word.

From beginning to end the Bible exposes man's sin, his inability to do deal with that sin and satisfy a holy God, and the need for a savior.

There is one and only one savior, the Lord Jesus Christ. He is the center of God's plan of salvation. It is in Him alone, no other, that one must trust for forgiveness of sins and eternal life.


Independent

 

We are a local church, supporting ourselves through the grace of God in all matters of finance, polity, administration and worship.

We have no hierarchy or denomination to "strongly recommend" or detract from our testimony.


Premillennial In Hope

 

The Bible predicts a yet future time of tribulation for the unbelieving peoples of the earth.

The Bible also predicts that those who are alive at that time and have trusted the Lord Jesus Christ as their savior will be taken off the earth and into the presence of the Lord before that time known as the Tribulation period begins.

Our eschatology remains fixed as to our Lord's return to Earth with His saints prior to establishing a literal 1,000 year reign of righteousness on earth.

We also are pretribulational, believing that our Lord will catch us up to be with Him before the tribulation on earth begins.


Evangelistic

 

The teaching whereby the local church and the believer are obedient to the command of Mark 16:15 ".Go ye into all the world and preach the gospel to every creature."

We are responsible to give forth the gospel and to give the people opportunity to receive the Lord Jesus Christ as their personal Savior from sin, when it is convenient and when it is not, whether by our personal witness or public invitation in the church.

An evangelistic (soul-winning) emphasis affects our prayer lives, our private lives, our vision, and is successful when accompanied by God's power.

If you bring a lost person to our church, you can be assured that they will have the gospel woven into the message and be given opportunity to be saved.


Scriptural In Our Music - Rejecting The CCM Movement

 

We sing the traditional old hymns of the faith that are based on sound doctrine found in the Kings James Bible. We sing our hymns both with and without the accompaniment of a piano or organ. We sing the old hymns of worship and praise, always remembering that we are worshipping the Lord of Glory, singing to the LORD and not entertaining ourselves.

We believe that our music should always be honoring to the LORD and that it should prepare our hearts to commune with Him both during the singing and afterwards as we are fed from the word of God.

Ephesians 5:19 Speaking to yourselves in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing and making melody in your heart to the Lord;

Colossians 3:16 Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly in all wisdom; teaching and admonishing one another in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing with grace in your hearts to the Lord.


We hope that after visiting you will prayerfully consider Heritage Baptist Church as your church home.

Monthly Devotional

“Another parable put he forth unto them, saying, The kingdom of heaven is likened unto a man which sowed good seed in his field: But while men slept, his enemy came and sowed tares among the wheat, and went his way.” - Matthew 13:24,25

This parable is explained later in the same chapter: the wheat is identified as “the children of the kingdom,” and the tares as “the children of the wicked one”(vs.38). The wheat represents believers - the children of God; while the tares speak of unsaved individuals - the children of Satan.

Further, God says that the field is the world and the devil is the one who deliberately sows the tares among the wheat ( vss.38,39). Satan does this deceptive work while the church is asleep (vs.25). This means that the church needs to remain awake and alert so that Satan is not able to sow his seed at will. He is identified as the enemy of God, and is very busy today working at hindering the church in its work of winning people to Christ and glorifying the Lord in all that we do.

The last part of vs. 25 is also important. It says that after Satan has sowed his tares among the wheat, he “went his way.” He goes somewhere else to do the very same thing. His motive cannot be for profit because the physical tares were not saleable as is wheat. His motive must be hatred of God. He is doing all that he can to hinder and even stop the work of God in us and in our church!

Soon the harvest is coming. The wheat: those who have been redeemed to Christ through faith alone in Him, will be gathered into God’s kingdom (vss.30, 43). The tares: those who never received Christ by faith as Savior, and are “children of the wicked one,” will be cast into Hell. Both the wheat and the tares will be members of the same churches and will almost look alike for a time, but as wheat matures, the differences are striking and the end for the tares will be at that time of harvest.

Make sure that you are part of the wheat and not of the tares. II Corinthians 13:5, says, “Examine yourselves, whether ye be in the faith…” If not of Christ yet, Repent toward God and trust Christ alone as your Savior. Your eternal destination rests on the accuracy of God’s Word as to what you do or don’t do with respect to the Lord Jesus Christ for salvation.
