Heritage Presbyterian Church

Who Are We?

We are a new church in Cumming, Georgia, based on biblical and historical Christianity. We are evangelical and reformed. What we believe the Bible teaches is in the Westminster Confession of Faith and Catechisms.

The center of our lives as individuals, families, and a congregation is the adoring worship of the triune God. We love to fellowship with and serve each other as the body of Christ. Our mission, to use the words of the Great Commission, is to make the world’s nations Christ’s disciples, to serve the world by working to bring it to Christ. The local church is the base of our operations for evangelism, discipleship, education, and world missions. All races and nationalities are welcome to our church.

We equip our members to live loving, Christ-like lives, obedient to God’s ethical standards in the whole Bible, in the strength of the Holy Spirit, for the glory of God. As a community of God’s friends in Christ, we believe God’s promise that He has entered into a covenant bond with us in which He is our God and we are His people in Christ, down through our generations. Therefore, confident in God’s faithfulness, we look forward to the future with well-grounded optimism that “posterity will serve Him; it will be told of the Lord to the coming generations. They will come and will declare His righteousness to a people who will be born that He has performed it.” Psalm 22:30-31

Our church and its pastor are affiliated with a small denomination called the Reformed Presbyterian Church, Hanover Presbytery. “Reformed” means that we are heirs of the Protestant Reformation. “Presbyterian” means that we are shepherded by elders who are elected by the congregation. “Church” means that our one requirement for church membership is a credible profession of faith in Christ and the Bible. Hanover Presbytery has a colorful history. It began in the early 1700’s and Patrick Henry grew up in one of its churches. It was re-constituted in the early 1990’s. Its churches are found from coast to coast.
