Beliefs

We believe that Highland Baptist Church exists to lead people to Connect with Jesus and with others, Grow in Jesus, and Live out our faith in Jesus.

Even our best and most rewarding human relationships cannot completely fill the hollow place in the human heart that was made for a personal and intimate relationship with God. From the pages of the Bible, from the beauty of creation, from the hidden rooms or our souls, the Father is calling us into intimate relationship. It is not a relationship bound up in rigid rule keeping. It is not some private religious club that bars potential members until they measure up. It is a relationship of grace, which calls us

  • To stop running and allow ourselves to be “caught,”
  • To stop pretending and allow ourselves to be known,
  • To stop rushing and allow ourselves to be slowed down,
  • To stop hiding and allow ourselves to be loved.
  • It is a relationship that calls us home to him from whatever far country our hearts have inhabited from whatever love substitutes we’ve been relying on. Home –where our names are known and our gifts are celebrated.

    To know more about this intimate relationship you are invited to contact this church and to attend activities here and worship services here. You can ask questions of any staff member at any time. God has set us here waiting for your contact. (541-548-4161, email).
