Who we Are

Welcome to Christ Church of the Heartland online.  We want to thank you for taking a moment out of your day to be with us.  God is pouring out His Spirit as never before, and people are experiencing more of Him and His goodness.

At Christ Church of the Heartland, it is our desire for every individual to know the fullness of Jesus Christ in every aspect of their life.  Our church is not about perfect people but rather caring people helping others discover Jesus.  You are special to us and you are special to God.  He has a divine purpose and plan for you.

Programs are provided for all ages with energetic contemporary worship and powerfully anointed preaching and teaching.  Our relevant messages are sure to give you direction and answers in the Word of God.

We look forward to seeing you soon.
