New Here?

Thank you for your interest!


We’ll try to respect your space and let you warm up to us at your own pace—but don’t expect to be anonymous. The commons is a beautiful public space and we think you’ll find our “round table” atmosphere will put you at ease. This is not a “get in and get out” congregation. You’ll find us eager to hang around long after the service concludes.

We are not aware of another setting like this in Omaha. Round tables, a mix of music styles offered by our Eagle Heights Worship team followed by relevant teaching based on solid Biblical doctrine. Not everyone will appreciate our style, but we find it relaxing and fulfilling. Children are welcome to stay in the service. However, for those that wish to take advantage of it, a nursery, is available during the service.

Our master plan is not about bricks and mortar, sidewalks and steeples. Building the church means building community.

Mike Friesen is a second-generation pastor. His father started a new church in Omaha in 1964. Although growing up in a ministry minded home, Mike didn’t consider professional Christian service until after exploring an education in engineering.

After transferring from the University of Nebraska, Mike met Carolyn at Grace University. The two were married six months after graduation. Between 1985 and 1990 Mike completed requirements for a Master’s degree in Theology from Dallas Theological Seminary. God’s work in the world has always been an interest, and both Mike and Carolyn have served overseas on several occasions. Pastor Mike began service at Eagle Heights in April of 2005 following ministries at two other churches.

God has blessed Mike and Carolyn with seven children. Between all kinds of activities with the kids, Mike enjoys home remodeling projects.

Pastor Mike: “My great delight is to serve God’s people by using the shepherding and teaching gifts He has entrusted to me. I’ve been asked if teaching in a Bible college was a consideration for the future. I love to teach and have served as an adjunct professor at Grace University-but to me it’s never been academic. The abundant life that Jesus tantalizes us with is not out of reach, nor is it the reward of simply “doing church.” My heart’s desire is to equip believers to passionately worship God, sensitively minister to one another and effectively witness to the lost. As an eager student of God’s Word, I am constantly amazed at the soul-satisfying truth of His revelation. Through creative and thought-provoking communication in both large and small group settings, I long to see men and women transformed by the renewing of their minds with the goal “that we may present every man complete in Christ.”


  • We believe the Bible to be the inspired, authoritative Word of God
  • We believe there is one God, eternally existent in three persons: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit
  • We believe in the deity of Christ, His virgin birth, His sinless life, His death on the cross for our sins, and His resurrection from the dead
  • We believe that one day He will return from His place at the Father’s right hand to establish His kingdom on earth
  • We believe that all men are separated from God by sin. We believe that God in His grace has solved man’s sin dilemma by providing salvation through faith in Jesus Christ, and apart from any effort on man’s part
  • We believe that in the power of the Holy Spirit, believers may live fruitful lives that bring honor to God
  • We believe that eternal life in His presence is God’s promise to each of His children

(If you would like a more fully developed statement of faith, please ask!—we think it is important too.)


Eagle Heights Church believes that local churches can best promote the cause of Jesus Christ by cooperating with one another in a denominational organization. Therefore, Eagle Heights has chosen to be affiliated with the Converge Worldwide (Formerly known as the Heartland Baptist District of the Baptist General Conference).
