Wednesday Night Gathering

The Christian Story // 6:45 pm in the Chapel

Welcome to the New Wednesday Night at HBC!

At Heritage, our beliefs are grounded upon the truth found in the Bible. We believe the Bible to be inerrant, infallible, and authoritative for all of life.

Therefore, we cherish the Scriptures and seek to proclaim that we all are sinners, yet God in His infinite love has made a way for us to be saved through faith in His Son, Jesus. Yet, many of us are not as familiar with the Bible as we would like to be. Seeing scripture as a series of disconnected, short stories rather than one unified narrative pointing to Jesus that reveals God’s purpose for us and all of creation.

Whether you are new to the faith or grew up in the church, this 17-week study will help you understand and explain the true story of the world, and help you find your place within it.


After completing this study, our hope is that you will:

  • Understand the overarching narrative and themes of the Bible and how it all points to Jesus
  • Know the basic “chapters” in the story of Redemptive Human History
  • Know and appreciate their own place in the larger story of the Scriptures
  • Summarize and share the story of the Bible
  • Explain how Jesus is the fulfillment of the promises of the Old Testament
