Welcome to Higher Heights Community Church!
Welcome to Higher Heights Community Church, an affiliate of the National Baptist Convention and the Baptist General Convention of Texas that is located in Tyler, Texas. Higher Heights has been ministering to residents of Smith county and the greater east Texas area since it was founded in 1996 by our pastor, James Earl Hawkins, and is characterized by (1) the faithful preaching of God’s Word, (2) humble worship, (3) authentic relationships, and (4) community outreach and involvement. We hope the following will serve as a helpful introduction to Higher Heights Community Church. To learn more about us, we would encourage you to look under the “About” tab in the navigation menu above, contact us directly, and/or visit during one of our weekly services.
Faithful communication and meaningful application of the Word of God is the most critical element of Higher Heights. Click “Resources” in the navigation menu above to access our sermons online.
Our desire is to worship God humbly, (1) trusting that Jesus has accomplished for us everything we need to be made right with God, (2) loving God wholeheartedly, and (3) seeking wholeheartedly to submit ourselves in obedience to His commands.
The pursuit of authentic relationships at Higher Heights is a deep commitment of ours. We would invite you to “meet” us right here online, and then come and join us in person. We would love to have you!
Community Outreach & Involvement.
Perhaps our most significant outreach to the city of Tyler and surrounding east Texas area is Potter’s Restoration House, a ministry of Higher Heights Community Church aimed at helping those affected by unemployment, abuse, addiction, broken relationships, etc. For more on Potter’s Restoration House, click here or look under “Ministries” in the navigation menu above.
