About New Heights Church

The Vision of New Heights Church is to be a multiethnic, multigenerational, mission-shaped community that loves God completely (Upward), ourselves correctly (Inward), and our neighbors compassionately (Outward). The vision of New Heights Church is birthed out of the very heart of Jesus.

The Great Commandment

And He (Jesus) said to him, “You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind. This is the great and first commandment. And a second is like it: You shall love your neighbor as yourself. On these two commandments depend all the Law and the Prophets.” Matthew 22:37–40 ESV

The Great Commission

And Jesus came and said to them, “All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to Me. Go therefore and make disciples of all nations (ethnic groups), baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all that I have commanded you. And behold, I am with you always, to the end of the age.” Matthew 28:18–20 ESV

In New Heights Church’s vision, “multiethnic, multigenerational, mission-shaped community” is from the Great Commission and “love God completely (Upward), ourselves correctly (Inward), and our neighbors compassionately (Outward)” is from the Great Commandment.
