We value the Gospel
The good news about Jesus' life, death, and resurrection is the focus of our mission.
It's all about Jesus, its all for Jesus, and Jesus gets all the credit.
We value the Holy Spirit's work in our lives
We are all baptized by one Spirit. We actively seek and expect the Holy Spirit's guidance, direction and empowerment.
We value the Word of God
We read it, meditate on it, teach it, and apply it to our lives by embracing Biblical values as a lifestyle.
We value worship
Intimate and passionate worship fuels what we do, and it it sensitizes us to God's God's power and presence. It's our highest calling. The Lord of our souls delights in our delight of Him.
We value prayer
Like worship, prayer is an important part of our relationship with Jesus. We believe that prayer changes things. We embrace the Biblical reality that spiritual warfare is the context of our lives. Prayer is a powerful spiritual resource in our battle to advance the Kingdom.
We value people
We believe all people matter to God. We believe that we are especially called to care for the hurting, the broken, the poor, and the marginalized. We are a healing community.
We value authentic Christ-centered relationships
We are relationship driven in every area of ministry. We share life with through-Christ-centered small groups. We have a relational approach to evangelism and discipleship.
We value God's design for sexuality and marriage
God created human sexuality and marriage intentionally and for our good. Therefore we affirm the Biblical definition of marriage as the uniting of a man and a woman in covenant relationship for a lifetime. All intimate sexual activity outside the Biblical marriage relationship, whether heterosexual, homosexual, or otherwise, is immoral and therefore sin. Jesus clearly restated this for the church. We all struggle with sin, often in the area of sexuality. Regardless of your personal sin struggles you are welcome at New Heights. Our hope is to extend grace while never compromising truth. However, New Heights will not recognize same-sex marriage and out staff will not perform same-sex marriage ceremonies (Gen 1:27; Gen 2:19-25; Exodus 20:14, 17; Matt. 19:3-9; Rom 1:18-32; 1 Cor. 6:9-20; Jude 7).
We value the great commission
We work to make disciples both locally and globally, from every race and culture. We send our workers and plant churches so that "the Lamb who was slain will receive the reward for His suffering."
We value unity
Within the bounds of historic Christianity, we focus on the Savior who unites us and the essential truths of Scripture rather than smaller issues that divide us.
We value service
God calls every believer to serve, an gives them gifts to use, therefore we release people to serve. On Sunday mornings we encourage people to worship one service and serve one.
We value team
We're all called to serve, so we serve together. Two are always better than one. Teams provide encouragement, accountability, and increased effectiveness as we serve together.
We value generosity
We embrace sacrificial living and generous giving as a way of life. We leverage our time, talents, influence, and financial resources for Christ's Kingdom.
