OUR DECLARATION OF PURPOSE
In Ephesians 3:19, Paul implores us to increase our perception of God’s love by letting it expand from head knowledge to actual experience. Those two levels also describe our process of commitment to these decisions.
These are not arrogant proclamations of our accomplishments. We continue to comprehend the high cost and great value of each of these declarations of purpose.
Here are the Decisions We Have Made:
We have decided that teaching the Gospel without demonstrating the gospel is not enough. Good preaching, good doctrine, and being good people is not enough.
We have decided that having a good church club is not enough, good fellowship is not enough, and just being a member of that club is not enough.
We have decided that having good Bible studies is good, but not good enough, that just making it to Heaven is not our goal, and that knowing about God without truly knowing and experiencing God is meaningless.
We have decided that having good programs is not enough, that change without transformation is intolerable, and that staying the same is not an option.
We have decided that gifting without character is futile.
We have decided that singing songs without worshiping is shallow, and having meetings without God’s presence is pointless.
We have decided that having faith without works is not enough, and having works without love is not acceptable – that our function comes FIRST out of our relationship with the Father, and second with each other.
We have decided that reading about the book of Acts without living the book of Acts is unthinkable.
We have decided that confident faith is good, but bold faith is better.
We have decided that hearing about the Holy Spirit without experiencing Him is silly, that believing in His presence without seeing it manifested in signs and wonders is hypocrisy, that believing in healing without seeing people healed is absurd, and that believing in deliverance without people being delivered is absolutely ridic

So you’re invited to come visit us and soon you will feel like you’re part of the Heartland Church family.
Baptism in water is by immersion, is a direct commandment of our Lord and is for believers only. The ordinance is a symbol of the Christian’s identification with Christ in His death, burial, and resurrection. (Matt.28:19, Rom. 6:4; Col.2:12; Acts 8:36-39)
The following recommendation regarding the water baptismal formula is adopted: to wit: “One the confession of your faith in the Lord Jesus Christ, the Son of God, and by His authority, I baptize you in the Name of the Father, and the Son, and the Holy Spirit, Amen.”
BAPTISM IN THE HOLY GHOST
The Baptism in the Holy Ghost and Fire is a gift from God as promised by the Lord Jesus Christ to all believers in this dispensation and is received subsequent to the New Birth. This experience is accompanied by the initial evidence of speaking in other tongues as the Holy spirit Himself gives utterance (Matt.3:11; John 14:16, 17; Acts 1:8; Acts 2:38, 39; Acts 19:1-7; Acts 2:4).
The Bible teaches that without holiness no man can see the Lord. We believe in the Doctrine of Sanctification as a definite, yet progressive work of Grace, commencing at the time of regeneration and continuing until the consummation of salvation and Christ’s return (Heb.12:14; 1 Thess.5:23; 2 Peter 3:18; 2 Cor.3:18; Phil 3:12-14; 1 Cor.1:30).
