Welcome to Heaton Christian Church

They say home is where the heart is! The same could be said for a church home, that is where the believers heart is! The church is where we get the opportunity to grow spiritually alongside brothers and sisters, and draw nearer to a loving Creator who longs for nothing more than the unity of HIs children. It is in this home, our church home, that we get to experience the preciousness of our awesome God, and fellowship with other faithful disciples.

What is a Christian Church? 

HCC-Building-CropA christian church is a nondenominational, independent, protestant church.  In the 1800’s “Christian” churches were formed in a time of interdenominational friction.  These new churches were based on the teaches of Jesus, as taken directly from the New Testament, independent of any denominational doctrine.  Today at christian churches across the country, unity among all Christians continues as the dominant them.

How Do I Meet People?

Heaton Christian Church is not a place for spectators. It is a place for team members. Whether you are a five-year old child, a ninety-five year old grandmother, a busy mom, or a businessman with big responsibilities, we want you to be a part of our vibrant church community. Here is how you can learn, serve, and grow at Heaton Christian Church.

Bible Study

Often, small groups of people are better able to interact and learn about a topic than larger groups are. For that reason, Heaton Christian Church has small bible studies held in member homes. The size of the group is anywhere from six to twelve. At a time, designated by your group, you can participate in the small group study.

Each Sunday morning, children get to participate in their own classes. Bible lessons are taught in such a way that every child gets to participate and learn. Each of the class teachers is carefully screened and thoroughly trained in children’s instruction. The youth ministry of Heaton Christian Church is recognized for their close interaction.

Youth Group

Young Adults

Life can get complicated once you cross that nebulous threshold into adulthood. There are complicated decisions. Bigger stakes. Serious relationships. And a whole lot more decisions. The young adult group of Heaton Christian Church provides a welcoming atmosphere for college and early-career aged young people.

Women’s Group

Heaton Christian Women’s Groups gives the ladies in our church family special times of interaction. Our women’s groups, located in several locations throughout our community, are times of Bible study, prayer (and, of course, food). These groups provide a refreshing discipleship opportunity for the women in the church.

Men’s Accountability Group

Accountability among men is an act of integrity. Accountability is designed to protect, encourage, and develop men of all ages. Accountability groups of three are formed among the men of Accountability groups meet together as their schedules allow and keep in touch by email or phone.

Married Couples

Even though marriage is one of the most important institutions, it is the one which is under the most attack–internally and externally. Heaton Christian Church gives married couples the opportunity to join four-month long marriage classes ranging on topics from Marriage and Money, Getting Ready for Kids, Shepherding Children, Marriage and Sex.

Over 50s Bible Study

Over 50’s

Once you get past fifty, the fun has just begin. Whether retired, just plain tired, or active as ever, the over-50 group of Heaton Christian Church provides refreshment, ministry, and times of valuable interaction. A mentoring ministry gives older believers a chance to meet with and help younger believers grow in Christ.


When you give to Heaton Christian Church, it effects change not only in Elk Park and the local community, but around the world. Heaton Christian Church partners with all kinds of ministries to be a part of initiating what God wants to see happen in the earth.
