What We Believe

We believe the Bible to be the inspired, infallible, authoritative Word of God and inerrant in the original writings. We believe that there is one God, eternally existing in three persons: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. We believe in the deity of our Lord Jesus Christ, in His virgin birth, in His sinless life, in His miracles, in His vicarious and atoning death through His shed blood, in His bodily resurrection, in His ascension to the right hand of the Father, and in His personal return in power and glory.

We believe that the lost and sinful man must be saved, and that man's only hope of redemption is through the shed blood of Jesus Christ, the Son of God.

We believe in the present ministry and baptism of the Holy Spirit, by whose indwelling the Christian is enabled to live a Godly life.

We believe in the spiritual unity of believers in our Lord Jesus Christ.

What sets us apart:

Reformed
We are Reformed in doctrine and are committed to the Scriptures of the Old and New testaments as the only binding testimony to Jesus Christ, and as the only standard for what His disciples are to believe and for how they are to live.

Presbyterian
We are Presbyterian in government and are committed to the Scripture’s standard for the care of Christ’ people through Elders to teach and rule, Deacons to meet pressing needs, and all of God’s people using His gifts in service to others.

Church
We acknowledge Christ as covenant Lord in every area of life and are committed as a community called together by Jesus, to glorify Him and to bless one another and all those around us.


Goals
Our goals are to proclaim and live the good news of God’s kingdom, with HOPE.

History
Christian Heritage is a member congregation of the Reformed Presbyterian Church of North America.  Reformed Presbyterians have also been referred to as Covenanters because of their identification with public “covenanting” which originated in Scotland, in the 16th century. This act was a protest for Christ’s crown rights over the state. The goal was recognition of Christ as King over the Church, without interference from the government. The first Reformed Presbyterian congregation was organized in North America in 1743.

Christian Heritage was established in Endicott on September 16, 2007. Visitors are always welcome and are often interested to hear our musical praise using the book of Psalms and a cappella singing.
