The vision of Grace Heritage Church is to be a Bible-based church whose chief delight is our infinitely glorious and sovereign God and Savior. We desire to experience and testify to the grace, joy, and freedom of the gospel. The perfect and holy law of God shows us that we are guilty before God and unable to bring about the inner change necessary to obey God from the heart and to delight in His ways. The gospel ( good news ) is that Christ has fulfilled the demands of the law and opened the way for the believer to have a relationship with God. He comes to powerless people and grants repentance from sin and faith in Christ. He takes away guilt and credits his righteousness to those who believe in Him. He gives us hearts that find their chief delight in God. Worship is the corporate expression of the delight, awe, and thankfulness that come from knowing our infinitely glorious and sovereign God and Savior. Because the distance between God and His creatures is so great, the only acceptable way of approaching God in worship must be revealed to us by God Himself. Therefore, He may not be worshiped in ways invented by us. The central act of worship is the preaching of God's Word, through which we are made alive and fed spiritually. Preaching should be pervasively biblical, unashamedly doctrinal, intensely pastoral, and unmistakably Christ-centered. Singing is to be governed by the purpose of true worship - the exaltation of the Lord, the instruction of God's people, and the spiritual feasting of God's people on their Savior and His grace. An entertainment mentality has no place in the worship of God. As a result of these principles, worship services should be simple and reflect the emphases and actions of worship as described in the New Testament. God must be the center of our worship service.
