What We Believe
We believe in the triune God, who has revealed himself as one God in three Persons, Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. We believe that all people are sinners and can not have fellowship with God apart from what Jesus has done. We believe that God, in love, sent Jesus, His only Son, into the world to die on the cross for our sins. This Jesus rose from the dead and is now in heaven with God.  He will return visibly on the last day to judge all people. We believe that God will accept all who repent of their sins and believe that the finished work of Jesus Christ is the only basis of salvation. We believe that God wants us to love and care for one another. We believe that God wants us to be disciples and disciple makers.

Our History
First Christian Reformed Church of Sioux Falls called Pastor Jim Hoogeveen to begin a new church in Sioux Falls. Pastor Jim moved to Sioux Falls in August of 1995 and began the work of gathering a core group of people who would help start this new church. The focus of the church is to reach out to people who do not have a church home and those who are moving into this community. Heartland held its first public worship service on September 6, 1996. Since then Heartland has grown to what it is today. We continue to experience God's blessing as we go about the wonderful task of caring for people and helping them know and love God.


Our Logo
We carefully chose our logo to represent our task as a church. Heartland Community Church is a group of people committed to sharing God's love with everyone. The heart in the logo represents the brokenness in our world. We all experience pain and distress in life. The cross represents the solution that Jesus Christ offers for healing our brokenness. At Heartland we help provide love and healing for the brokenness people experience in life.

Heartland Community Church is a part of the Christian Reformed Denomination. The Christian Reformed Denomination, established in 1857, has 1021 congregations in the United States and Canada. It's membership includes 274,000 adults and children. It sends missionaries to many nations of the world. It provides for the needs of many people through the Christian Reformed World Relief Committee. Heartland is a community church as we have people who have come out of twelve denominational backgrounds as well as many people who have little or no church background.

Doctrinal Standards
The Christian Reformed Church subscribes to the following confessions:

  • Ecumenical Creeds*
    The Christian Reformed Church subscribes to the following three creeds:

* Article 9 of the Belgic Confession names three writings, dating from the first centuries of the Christian church, that we willingly accept as creeds: the Apostles' Creed, the Nicene Creed, and the Athanasian Creed. The adoption of the Belgic Confession by the synods of the Reformed churches in the Netherlands during the late sixteenth and early seventeenth centuries implicitly approved the three creeds mentioned above. They are called ecumenical (general, universal) because they have been approved and accepted by nearly all Christian churches.
