What We Believe
Statement of Faith
The excerpt below is taken from our Statement of Faith:
Although the Bible is the final authority in matters of faith and practice, a statement of faith can serve as an excellent summary of what we believe the Bible teaches. Many people claim to believe the Bible, yet disagree on vital issues. A statement of faith provides necessary definition. It also serves as a helpful teaching tool by providing a concise summary of biblical truth. We recognize that any statement of faith is a fallible, human attempt to summarize the riches of God's revelation and should therefore be open to further revision in the light of Holy Scripture. The following is a summary of what is taught as Biblical truth at Heritage Grace Community Church (HGCC).
The excerpt below is taken from our elders on Church Membership:

Here is the why, who, when, and what of membership.
