About Our Church
Family Heritage Baptist Church was founded in February of 2001 by Pastor Ernest Ruemenapp. We are an independent New Testament Baptist church committed to preaching the gospel of Jesus Christ. Together we are standing firm on the foundation of the Holy Bible. We are a family centered ministry; our church has different ministries whereby we are reaching out to children and adults with the gospel of Jesus Christ. Our church also maintains a strong commitment to world missions. We invite you to come by and visit our church.
