Cedar Heights is member church of the Brethren In Christ  (BIC) denomination.  The BIC is a church that has its historical roots in south-central Pennsylvania in the mid 1700s.  Originally known as the River Brethren, the BIC was formed upon the influences of Anabaptism, Pietism, Wesleyanism.  We regard the Bible as the authorized word of God.  We value simple living, actively working towards peace, and a genuine and personal experience of renewed life in Christ - amoung others.  To discover more of our denominational core values, and articles of faith and doctrine - please visit the website at bic-church.org.

     The Cedar Heights Church will celebrate its 100 year anniversary in 2013.  The church has evolved from a modest beginning in the 1800s where attenders would meet for worship in homes and schoolhouses.  On May 11, 1913, the congregation completed the building of their initial location in Cedar Springs.  In April of 1972 we moved into our current location just up the road on route 64 in Mill Hall.  Our newest addition to the building was completed in 2001 which has given us more space for classrooms, offices and fellowship times.

Following the Shepherd

"When he has brought out all his own, he goes on ahead of them, and his sheep follow him because they know his voice."  John 10:4

Vision Statement:

Understanding that change is inevitable we seek to be a body that introduces people to the love of God by being His hands and feet.  We will follow the leading of Jesus found in the New Testament scriptures and his examples of love, acceptance, and community.  We will seek to allow His love to transform us from our inmost being as we become developed into His image in ever-increasing likeness.

Core Values:

Many of our core values reflect those of our parent denomination.  These include Believing the Bible, Experiencing God's Love and Grace, Worshipping God, Following Jesus, Belonging to the Community of Faith, Witnessing to the World, Serving Compassionately, Pursuing Peace, Living Simply and Relying on God.  Our core values are focused on the fact that a life transformed by The Living God should reflect His love for us and our gratitude to Him.
John 3:16-21

16 For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life. 17 For God did not send his Son into the world to condemn the world, but to save the world through him. 18 Whoever believes in him is not condemned, but whoever does not believe stands condemned already because they have not believed in the name of God’s one and only Son. 19 This is the verdict: Light has come into the world, but people loved darkness instead of light because their deeds were evil. 20 Everyone who does evil hates the light, and will not come into the light for fear that their deeds will be exposed. 21 But whoever lives by the truth comes into the light, so that it may be seen plainly that what they have done has been done in the sight of God.
