About Us

National Heights has a family of ministries designed to minister to your family. Find out information about our services, ministries, directions, where to park, and more.


We seek to provide every individual opportunities to connect with God. In each of our services, you will find a variety of folks, some in coat and tie, some in jeans and a T-shirt, all worshiping the Savior. The 8:30 Sunday service has more of a classic feel, while the 11:00 service includes a praise team and worship band. All services include a message based on the Bible and applied to life.

NHBC Heritage

National Heights enjoys a rich history and continues to celebrate its wonderful heritage. Founded in July 1889 as the third Baptist church in Springfield, the church has experienced a blessed ministry. Formerly known as the East Avenue Baptist Church, the building was relocated to its present location in 1979 and adopted the National Heights name.
