At Highland Community Church, we believe...


  ...the Bible to be the only inspired, inerrant, infallible, authoritative Word of God written. We believe that the scriptures give believers everything they need to know how to live for God.  II Timothy 3:16, 17 
  ..in one God, creator of all things, infinitely perfect and eternally existent in three persons: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. Genesis 1:1; John 4:24; John 10:30
  ...in the deity of Christ, in His virgin birth, in His sinless life, in His death on the cross for our sins, in His bodily resurrection and in His personal return in power and glory.  Isaiah 7:14; Philippians 2:5-11; Romans 8:34 
  ...that man was created in the image and likeness of God, but that in Adam’s sin the race fell, inheriting a sinful nature. We believe that man is totally depraved, and of himself unable to remedy his lost condition.  Romans 3:22, 23; Ephesians 2:1-3, 12 
  ...that the shed blood of Jesus Christ and His resurrection provides the only ground for justification and salvation to all who believe. We believe that only those who are born again by the Holy Spirit are children of God.  I Corinthians 15:4; Romans 8:34
  ...in the present ministry of the Holy Spirit toward believers. The Holy Spirit indwells believers, guides them, instructs them and empowers them to serve and live a Godly life in this present evil world.  John 16:8; I Corinthians 3:16; Ephesians 1:13, 14 
  ...that Satan is a person, the author of all sin, the enemy of God and the deceiver of mankind. We believe that he shall be eternally punished in the lake of fire.  Job 1:6, 7; Matthew 4:2-11; Revelation 20:10 
  ...in the resurrection of both the saved and the lost; they that are saved unto the resurrection of life, and they that are lost unto the resurrection of damnation.  John 5:28, 29; Matthew 25:46
  ...in the spiritual unity of all believers in Christ.  I Corinthians 10:17; John 17:11; Ephesians 4:3

The ordinances of the church are Baptism and the Lord’s Supper. As a visible sign of a personal acceptance of Jesus Christ as Savior, we believe and practice baptism by immersion. The Lord’s Supper is a time of remembering the death of Christ for man’s sins. It is currently served on the first Sunday morning of each month and is open to all who profess to know Jesus Christ as Savior and Lord.
