Who We are

Every church needs to have a purpose statement that answers the question, “Why do we exist?” At Highland Assembly, we filter every idea, program, and budget request through our purpose statement. If what we plan doesn’t help us meet our purpose, then we don’t do it.

Our purpose at Highland Assembly is summarized into a single statement:


"To reach people in the Tri-County area with the life-giving message of Jesus, that they might become fully devoted followers of Christ."


Our goal is to create an environment where our members can bring their friends and neighbors. Where visitors feel welcome and are introduced to Jesus, are provided discipleship opportunities and ultimately walk in the blessing of God watching their own lives and families flourish.


Our statement of purpose is based on two teachings of Jesus:


Love God, Love Others...

Jesus replied: “Love the Lord your God with all your heart…soul and…mind.’ This is the first and greatest commandment. And the second is like it: ‘Love your neighbor as yourself.’ All the Law and the Prophets hang on these two commandments.” (Matthew 22:36-40)

 

Go into all the world…

He said to them, “Go into all the world and preach the good news to all creation. Whoever believes and is baptized will be saved, but whoever does not believe will be condemned. And these signs will accompany those who believe… Then the disciples went out and preached everywhere, and the Lord worked with them and confirmed his word by the signs that accompanied it.” (Mark 16:15-20)
