Who We Are
At Highland Baptist Church we exist to make fully devoted followers of Jesus Christ to the glory of God.
The foundation of our church is the good news of reconciliation that God has graciously provided humankind through the life, death, resurrection, and future return of His Son Jesus Christ.
True worship of God involves the entire life of a believer and is marked by individual obedience along with regular gathering as the people of God. When we come together, we are committed to worship through God-honoring preaching and teaching, music, prayer, giving, and administration of the ordinances of baptism and the Lord’s Supper.
The Christian life was not meant to be lived out alone. We strive to fully experience that life by developing transparent relationships, nurturing and encouraging one another, and holding each other accountable to the holy calling which we share.
At Highland, every member is considered an integral part of the community, and is encouraged and empowered to serve others in a capacity that best engages his or her own giftedness, abilities, passion, and experience.
As Christians we have both the privilege and responsibility of telling others God’s story of reconciliation and redemption through the life, death, resurrection, and future return of His Son, Jesus Christ. We are committed to actively sharing the gospel message and making disciples as God grants opportunities in the local community and abroad.
Who We Aspire to Be
Our vision is to build a church where God is glorified, lives are changed, purpose is fulfilled, and joy is experienced. At Highland we desire to be a body of believers where:
- curious people can engage in open and meaningful conversations to have issues discussed and questions answered
- hurting people can find healing and hope as they are offered grace and acceptance in their specific life circumstances
- families are nurtured and supported and children are given a solid, biblical foundation for life
