It’s more than just practicing religion, God wants a relationship with us. Therefore, our weekend services are where we focus on that relationship. You can be new to faith, have questions, or a long time Christ follower, either way our services are a safe place to learn more about knowing God and growing closer to Him.

One of the ways God designed us to live in freedom is to have people in our life to help us in the journey. Therefore, connecting with others in life groups is a practical and enjoyable way to find that kind of life-changing community. In other words, we believe life is so much better together and that we should never walk alone.

We are all an important part of God’s plan, and our life will never make sense until we discover our purpose. The growth track is designed to help us take a step in that important process of discovering our purpose, and it also will help you learn more about the church. There are opportunities to jump into the track all year long. 

This is God’s ultimate plan for our life to make a difference in the lives of others. When we do, the Bible tells us we will experience joy. Through the New Heights Dream Team, we hope to connect every person to an opportunity to live out their calling by using their gifts and talents to serve others in the church and community.

“A tithe of everything… belongs to the Lord; it is holy to the Lord.” Leviticus 27:30

At New Heights Church we practice tithing as God commands. We recognize that giving 10% of our income is the Biblical standard of giving.

Many people love to give to God, but need to have confidence in the organizations to which they give. People need to see honesty, integrity, and genuine spiritual values reflected in the lifestyles of their church leaders.

The giving of tithes and offerings is worship to Jesus Christ. It is an expression of the re­lationship between the individual giver and the Lord. Funds are not “income only,” they are worship, and must not be considered as a business transaction, but as an expression of gratitude toward God.
