O LORD, our Lord, how majestic is your name in all the earth! You have set your glory above the heavens. -Psalms 8:1

An independent Bible believing church

Located in McConnelstown, PA, Heritage Baptist Church (HBC) is a small independent church with a heart for spreading the gospel of Jesus Christ. HBC was born out of a home Bible study at 631 6th St. Huntingdon, led by Rev. Tim Shafer. With the prodding of the Bible study group and leading of God we started a church, calling it Heritage Baptist, sponsored by Emmanuel Baptist Church of Claysburg, PA and rented the Huntingdon Community Center in the summer of 1983. We purchased the Haverstock Funeral home and moved in October 1983 and had our official organization service in January of 1984. The church’s vision is “To encourage and equip families to honor Jesus Christ; to cultivate a lifestyle of worship; to creatively reach every generation with the Gospel; and to instill in every heart a passion for missions.”
