Know Him

At New Heights, we believe that the Holy Bible is the inspired word of God and is the basis for any statement of faith. The church subscribes to the doctrinal statement of The Baptist Faith and Message as adopted by the Southern Baptist Convention in 1963, amended in the year 2000. We band ourselves together as a body of baptized believers in Jesus Christ, personally committed to sharing the good news of salvation.

1We believe that God loves all people

God loves you…

God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.

John 3:16

but all people, including you, are sinners,

For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God.

Romans 3:23

and the consequence of sin is death.

For the wages of sin is death…

Romans 6:23a


God proved His love to us by allowing his son, Jesus, to die in our place for our sins. Because of Jesus’ death, God offers all of us eternal life.

For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God.

Romans 5:8


Therefore, our response should be

  • to Confess
  • to Repent
  • to Believe

(Agree that) Jesus is Lord (the one in charge) of your life.

…If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.

1 John 1:9

Repentance is a genuine turning from sin toward God. Faith is the acceptance of Jesus Christ and commitment of the entire personality to Him as Lord and Savior.

…Repent therefore, and turn back, that your sins may be blotted out.

Acts 3:19

Believing means that you wholly trust in Jesus’ resurrection.

…because, if you confess with your mouth that Jesus is Lord and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved.

Romans 10:9


For he has saved us from sin


Slavery to sin.

Jesus had no sin, and can break the power of sin over you. (Sin that results in broken relationships; lost trust; self doubts and feelings of worthlessness; addictions to drugs, pornography, gambling, etc.)


A meaningful life.

Jesus came that we might have full, abundant lives.

I came that they might have life, and have it abundantly.

John 10:10


The ultimate results of sin.

Sin ultimately results in death and eternal separation from God. When you personally accept Jesus as Lord of your life, He also becomes your Savior, saving you from death and eternal separation from Him into everlasting life with Him in Heaven.

For the wages of sin is death but the gift of God is eternal life through Christ Jesus our Lord.

Romans 6:23


Everlasting life with Jesus! This offer is open to all who will believe..

For God so loved the world that He gave His one and only Son, that whosoever believes in Him shall not perish, but have everlasting life.

John 3:16

5Do you accept Jesus?

To accept Jesus Christ as your Lord and Savior, sincerely pray (talk to God) from your heart, in your own words, or similar to the following prayer: I confess Jesus as Lord (one in charge) of my life. I believe in Your resurrection. I trust You wholly with my life, and ask You to help me live a full, meaningful life on earth, and with you eternally. Thank you God for loving me, a sinner. I repent (admit, renounce, and turn away) of my sins and ask for forgiveness. Amen (so be it)

6Welcome to God’s Holy family

The Bible promises the Holy Spirit as a holy compass to comfort and guide you.

Repent, and let each one of you be baptized in the name of Jesus for the forgiveness of your sins, and you shall receive the gift of the Holy Spirit.

Acts 2:38

The Bible also instructs Jesus’ followers to meet together for worship and encouragement to grow in Jesus Christ. By following through with baptism and uniting with a church, you will find new Christian friends and grow in your life in Christ.

Let us hold unswervingly to the hope we profess… let us consider how we may spur one another on toward love and good deeds… let us not give up meeting together… but let us encourage one another…

Hebrews 10:23-25

If you sincerely prayed to ask Jesus Christ into your life as your Lord and Savior, welcome to God’s family! We would love to know of your decision to follow Jesus Christ.
