Our Mission:


Love People Tangibly

God demonstrated his great love for us in Jesus Christ and his work of redemption on the cross. We believe our mission, our calling, our purpose is to join God in his work of restoration in our community and world. We do this by sharing the good news of what Jesus did, and by letting our vertical love for God lead to tangible love for people

You shall love the Lord you God with all of your heart and with all of your soul and with all of your mind. This is the great and first commandment. And a second is like it: You shall love your neighbor as yourself.                                                                 

                                                                            -  Matthew 22:7-38

Our CORE Values

We value the Gospel

The good news about Jesus' life, death, and resurrection is the focus of our mission. 

It's all about Jesus, it's 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 sensitizes us to 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. (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, and 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. 

The Beginning

In 2012, the elders and staff of New Heights Church in Fayetteville began to sense God's call to plant churches. A core group of families from Bentonville, AR had been making the drive to Fayetteville each Sunday, and they quickly became excited about the possibility of planting a church in Bentonville. After a year of concerted prayer, planning, and behind-the-scenes work, New Heights Church Bentonville was born. 

New Heights Bentonville officially launched on March 10th, 2013, with services every other Sunday at Old High Middle School in downtown Bentonville. In May of that year we began having services every Sunday. We currently meet for our worship services at Ruth Barker Middle School in Bentonville.
