From the first moment you set foot in Lincoln Heights Baptist Church, you will feel an overwhelming sense of friendliness and excitement. We desire for our church to be a place where you will be encouraged by others and accepted for who you are.
At LHBC we allow the Bible to teach, train, encourage, and motivate us to be all that God wants us to be.
At LHBC, our desire is to W.A.L.K. as Jesus did. We seek to do this by following hard after theses four principles:
Worshiping God with all our hearts
Accepting the call to be His witnesses
Learning to demonstrate love towards others
Keeping His commandments
From our earliest recollections of life, almost every one of us remember walking and running with ease. Physically walking is as natural and as easy as anything we do in Life. But as we look at a small child who is beginning to learn, we quickly see how awkward and difficult it can be at first. They begin by pulling up to things, then standing, then walking by holding on to objects, then a few steps and plenty of falling. Eventually they learn to stay on their feet and then quickly forget the early struggles they went through to learn that particular skill.
The Bible likens the Christian life to "walking". Not only are we called upon to spiritually walk, but also we are told in 1 John 2:6: "The one who says he abides in Him ought to walk in the same manner as He (Jesus) walked," To walk as Jesus walked and to faithfully follow Him is a bigger task than any of us can do on our own.
We as a church adopted a purpose statement that claimed that Lincoln Heights Baptist Church would walk as Jesus walked. W.A.L.K. stands for four purpose statements that give direction to where the church will go. This is a wonderful but challenging task. But we are not alone in our endeavor. God has given us plenty of help to accomplish the task. He has given His Son, His Spirit, His Word and He has given us His church. His desire is that we would walk hand in hand with each other. His desire is that we would love each other, lift each other up, and walk side by side as we endeavor to walk as Jesus walked.
