Loving God, Loving Others

If you are looking for a place to experience God's presence and love, come to Heritage Fellowship in McDonald, TN. McDonald is a small and peaceful community between Cleveland and Ooltewah in the scenic southeast Tennessee region. It is a perfect place to escape the noise and stress of everyday life and focus on what really matters: your relationship with God and others. You will feel the warmth and friendliness of our family atmosphere as soon as you join us.

At Heritage Fellowship, we worship God with passion and joy. Our music and message are designed to help you connect with God and grow in your faith. You will see people expressing their love for God in different ways: raising their hands, praying on their knees, embracing each other, sharing their stories, and welcoming newcomers. We believe that the Holy Spirit is moving among us every time we gather. We also believe that we are called to a) live a life of worship that honors God in everything we do and b) build authentic relationships that support and encourage each other. That's why Heritage Fellowship is a wonderful place for you to belong.

What We Believe

Our church is founded on Jesus Christ, the Son of God, and His teachings. We affirm the basic doctrines of the historic Christian faith. We uphold the key principles of the Protestant Reformation, such as justification by faith, the priesthood of believers, and the authority of the Bible. We accept the evangelical beliefs about the inspiration and authority of the Word of God; the Trinity; the deity and virgin birth of Jesus Christ; salvation by faith in the atoning death of Christ; His bodily resurrection and ascension to the right hand of the Father; the ministry of the Holy Spirit; the second coming of Christ; and the spiritual unity of believers in Jesus Christ. We seek to live in a way that honors our Lord, not out of legalism but out of love and devotion. We examine our own hearts according to the Scriptures. We aim to be conformed to the Image of Christ. We believe in the present ministry of the Holy Spirit as shown in the Book of Acts. We encourage believers to be filled with the Spirit and anticipate supernatural phenomena such as speaking in tongues, prophecy, divine healing, and other spiritual gifts to happen among us. We are committed to unity within the Body of Christ. We consider ourselves as only one expression of Christ’s Body on the earth. We believe that we should strive to keep the unity of the Spirit with all true believers in Christ, acknowledging them as our brothers and sisters in Christ.
