History of Our Church
Our church was founded as Central Baptist Church in 1955, under the leadership of Pastor Merle May. We were located in Garland and served the people of that community for many years. In 1993, we began to experience new life under our new pastor, Steve Foster. Thankful for the Lord’s grace toward us and expectant of His continued work in our lives, we renamed our church New Heights Baptist Church.
By 2005, we voted unanimously to relocate to Wylie. With a prayerful and wise plan in place, we began to build on our current property and invest our lives into our new community. Having purchased twenty-eight acres of land here and shortly thereafter selling the Garland property, we began meeting in various locations in Wylie until construction was completed. The first service in this beautiful, new facility was held in March, 2010. We greatly rejoiced that day, celebrating God’s blessings and provision of the past and reaching toward God’s mission for the future!
Since then, God has blessed us beyond measure, with renewed growth, vision and ministry for the Lord Jesus Christ. He is growing us into a mature body of believers who seek with all our hearts to do our part to make more and better Christians here and around the world. He guides us through our faithful Pastor who skillfully leads us to Christian maturity, unity, and purpose in the Lord’s work. He is opening doors wide for us to invest into the next generation of pastors, missionaries, and Christian workers who aim to go the right way a long time. For this, the people of New Heights Baptist Church are truly grateful.
Who We Are
New Heights Baptist Church is a conservative Baptist church. As such, this church stands for Christ in Biblical, personal and corporate holiness. Our efforts will be to strengthen godly standards, families and people. This good work will be accomplished through direct Bible preaching, teaching and modeling. We stand against modernism, new evangelicalism, ecumenicalism, the charismatic movement, the New Age movement, a social gospel, socialism, the homosexual movement and worldliness. This church will separate itself from groups who believe or practice the aforementioned erroneous belief systems and behaviors. We do so in an effort to be holy and unashamed at the rapture of our Lord.
