Everything we are and do at New Heights is defined by what we call the Irreducible Core. In a sense, being the Church is quite simple. There are many good things that a church can do, but there are only a few that are of eternal importance. We prayerfully and intentionally choose not to do the good things so that we can do that which is best. As a church, we can surely do more than the Irreducible Core, but to miss or neglect these three irreducible components would be tragic. To do these well is the ultimate success. And so, at New Heights we live by:
Loving God with all that we are – our first priority.
Loving Others with all that we are – our second priority.
“Jesus said, ‘Love the Lord your God with all your heart…soul…and mind. This is the first and greatest commandment. And the second is like it: Love your neighbor as yourself. All the Law and Prophets hang on these two commandments.’” Matthew 22:37-40
Making Disciples as we live life – our third priority.
“Jesus said, ‘Go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you.’” Matthew 28:19-20
