Welcome to Kenwood Heights Christian Church! Here you can learn more about our history, what we believe, and what to expect when you’re here!
Kenwood Heights Christian Church began on November 16, 1969 as a merger between Flora Heights Christian Church and Kenwood Christian Church. Our first building was located on Third Street, and in 2004 we moved to our current location on New Cut Road. KHCC continues to reach into the South Louisville community, and it is our hope you will join us and be part of our story that is continually begin written.
What to Expect
We know going to a new church for the first time can be intimidating. We want to help make your first experience at Kenwood Heights Christian Church a great one!
First of all, don’t stress about what to wear! Jesus cares more about your heart than your appearance, and we feel the same way.
Once you’ve parked come in through the Main Entrance, where you’ll be greeted by some awesome people who would be more than happy to help you find your way around!
If you have your kids with you and would like to take advantage of our Children’s Ministry, you’ll want to turn right and head down the hallway. The Nursery/Preschool area is at the end of the hall, and is available during Worship Service at 10:30 a.m.
If your kids are Elementary age, you’ll want to head upstairs to their area: The Treehouse! Activities for Elementary students are available during both Bible School at 9:15 a.m. and Worship Service at 10:30 a.m.
Worship Service is held down the hall to the left of the Main Entrance, in what we call the Multipurpose Room (MPR). Weekly bulletins are right inside the door, where you can find out what’s currently happening and more. Find a comfortable seat anywhere you like!
Our services usually last about an hour, and consists of a time of worship through music, communion, and a message from one of our ministers. Current and past messages can be found on our YouTube page!
Before you leave, be sure to visit the Connection Center in the MPR – we have a gift for you! Our hope is that while you are here, you will experience the love of Jesus and be drawn closer to Him. Please don’t hesitate to speak with one of our leadership (they are usually wearing gold name badges) if you have any questions!
What We Believe
Jesus Christ is the one and only Son of God, who died for our sins and arose from the dead.
(1 Corinthians 15: 1-8; John 3:16)
The Bible is the inspired word of God – a lamp unto our feet and a light unto our path.
(2 Timothy 3:16; Psalm 119:105)
Every person has worth as a creation of God, but that all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God.
Forgiveness of sins and the promise of eternal life are available to those who trust Christ as Savior and Lord.
Those accepting Christ should repent of sin, confess their faith, and be baptized into Him.
(Romans 10:9; Acts 2:38)
The Church is the body of Christ on earth, empowered by the Holy Spirit and exists to lead everyone to becoming a disciple of Jesus Christ.
Jesus Christ will one day return to earth and reign forever as King of kings and Lord of lords.
(1 Thessalonians 4:13-18)
Statement of Faith
I believe in one God the Father, Son and Holy Spirit.
(Matthew 5:16, 45; 6:1, 4, 8, 9; James 1:17 / John 1:1; 14:9 / Genesis 1:2; John 4:24; 14:16-20; 2 Peter 1:21)
I believe in God the Father Almighty, Creator of all things visible and invisible.
(Genesis 1:1; Acts 17:24-28; Hebrews 11:3)
I believe in Jesus Christ, God’s one and only Son, my one and only Savior,
(John 1:14; 1 John 4:9 / John 3:16; 2 Peter 3:18)
Who was born Jesus of Nazareth, both fully human and fully divine, conceived of the Holy Spirit and the virgin Mary,
(Matthew 21:11; John 19:19 / John 1:14; Romans 5:15-17; Colossians 2:9; 1 John 1:1 / Matthew 1:18; Luke 1:26-38)
Who suffered and was crucified under Pontius Pilate,
Who died and was buried, and Who rose again bodily from the dead on the third day,
(Luke 23:44 – 24:8; John 20:24-29; 1 Corinthians 15:3-8)
Who ascended into Heaven and now sits at the right hand of the Father,
(Luke 22:69; Acts 1:1-9; Colossians 3:1)
and Who will return to earth to judge both the living and the dead.
(Matthew 24:36-42; John 14:1-3; Acts 1:10-11; 10:39-42; 1 Peter 4:5)
I believe in the Holy Spirit, Who is an active and operative part of the triune God
(John 16:5-15; Acts 1:7-8; Romans 8:26-27), and Who indwells every Christian. (1 Corinthians 3:16; 6:19; 2 Timothy 1:14)
I believe in the Bible and God’s Holy Word, Scripture. I believe God inspired the autographs (original writings) of the Scripture and those autographs were consequently without error.
(Mark 12:36; John 14:26; 16:12-15; Acts 1:16; 1 Corinthians 2:12-13; 2 Timothy 3:14-16; 2 Peter 1:20-21)
I accept the Bible as the final authority for all matters of faith and practice.
(Isaiah 40:8; Matthew 5:18; 24:35; Romans 15:4; Hebrews 4:12)
I believe the Bible teaches that every individual person, created by God, willfully sinned against God and is consequently lost and without hope apart from Jesus Christ.
(Acts 4:12; Romans 3:23)
I believe the Bible teaches that salvation and the forgiveness of sins is achieved only by grace through the blood of Jesus Christ.
(Matthew 26:28; Romans 5:9; Ephesians 2:8-9; 1 Peter 1:18-19; 1 John 1:7)
I believe the Bible teaches that one receives God’s grace by putting faith in Christ, repenting of sin, confessing Christ, and being immersed into Christ, but that none of these is sufficient in and of itself for the assurance of salvation.
(Romans 5:1-2 / Luke 24:45-47; Acts 3:19; 17:30; 2 Peter 3:9 / Matthew 10:32; Romans 10:9; Philippians 2:11; 1 John 4:15 / Acts 2:38; Romans 6:1-7; Galatians 3:27; Colossians 2:12; 1 Peter 3:21)
I believe in the Church of Jesus Christ, founded on the Day of Pentecost and consisting of all Christians everywhere. (Matthew 16:13-18; Acts 2:14-47)
I believe the Bible teaches that the Elders are to exercise authority over the local congregation.
(Acts 20:28; Philippians 1:1; 1 Timothy 3:1-7; Titus 1:5-9; 1 Peter 5:1-4)
