At Highland Baptist our mission is to "Lead all people to treasure, live, and spread the Gospel of Jesus Christ". 

The purpose of this congregation is to give visible evidence to that faith and fellowship to which God has called His people. We acknowledge ourselves to be a local manifestation of the Church by which Jesus continues to minister to the world through the Holy Spirit. We shall seek to fulfill this calling through corporate worship, a program of Christian nurture, the proclamation of the Gospel by word and deed, and ministering to human needs in the name of Christ.

To fulfill Jesus’ Great Commission, Highland Baptist Church will seek to be a fellowship of disciples of Jesus sacrificially investing our lives and resources to make disciples of Jesus who:
