Highland Park Baptist Church

Our greatest desire at Highland Park has nothing to do with the church you attend, the clothes you wear, the work you do, or the past you've come from. Our greatest desire is for you to know Jesus.

OUR MISSION:

Mobilizing all people to live as Jesus followers.

 

OUR CORE VALUES:

Living life on purpose is important,
whether as an individual or as an organization.

Taking the time to discover and define the ideas that we believe to be most valuable provides an essential, life-giving framework.
Additionally, it gives us freedom to live out our individual and corporate ministry callings under the banner of Biblically-based principles.
At Highland Park, we believe that God has revealed to us five central principals that are the basis on which we build all our activity and ministry.
These “core values” are listed below:

#1 // GOD DEPENDENCE

John 15:5
//
We believe that . . .
without Him, we can do nothing.

#2 // KINGDOM ADVANCEMENT

Acts 1:8, Matthew 28:18-20
//
We believe that . . .
we exist for something greater than ourselves.

#3 // AUTHENTIC COMMUNITY

1 Peter 4:8-11
//
We believe that . . .
following Jesus happens best in relationship with others.

#4 // LIFE TRANSFORMATION

2 Corinthians 3:18, Galatians 2:20
//
We believe that . . .
our lives are a growing reflection of Jesus' life.

#5 // GOSPEL UNITY

Ephesians 4:2-6
//
We believe that . . .
the local church should reflect the diversity of Heaven.
