WHY WE EXIST:

We exist so that people will Know God, Find Freedom, Discover Purpose and Make a Difference.  

KNOW GOD
God unconditionally loves you and desperately wants to have a personal and daily relationship with you. Weekly services and groups are where we help people know God, and we’d love for you to join us.  

FIND FREEDOM
We all need freedom from the things that are holding us back from God’s best for our lives. God designed us to be in community with other believers. We do this through groups and believe it is one of the best ways to find freedom. We encourage everyone to go through a Freedom group, Financial Peace University, and join one of our many small groups.

DISCOVER PURPOSE
You are uniquely created for a purpose and your life is an important part of God’s plan. Membership class is designed to help you discover your spiritual gifts and talents.  

MAKE A DIFFERENCE
We all desire to make a difference. Every person has a part to play in the life of the church. Serving is an opportunity to use your unique gifts and talents to make an impact.

Statement of Faith

 

HOW

The Spiritual Growth Track provides practical steps to help people grow and progress in their spiritual journey. It includes Salvation, Baptism, Groups, Membership, Serving and Leadership. Taking these steps will help you Know God, Find Freedom, Discover Purpose and Make a Difference.

SALVATION
Salvation is a gift from God to us. We can never pay for our mistakes by self-improvement or through good works. Only by surrendering our lives to Christ can we be saved from eternal separation from God. Relationship with God begins the moment you acknowledge what Christ has done for you, pray to receive Him into your life, repent of your wrongdoings and confess your faith in Him

BAPTISM
Water baptism is an outward expression of an inward change. After you have committed your life to Christ, your next step in your spiritual journey is obedience through water baptism. If you have not taken this step, we encourage you to make a public declaration of your faith by getting water baptized. We’d love to celebrate this moment with you! 

GROUPS
Groups are how we do ministry. They are a great way to build life-giving relationships, to find freedom and to use your gifts. This makes a big church stay small. You’ll grow in community through encouragement, scripture and prayer. Groups are also a great place to discover the next step you need to take in your spiritual journey. 

MEMBERSHIP
Members are contributors, not consumers. They are committed to HighRidge as their spiritual family and are actively involved in church life. They are generous with their time, resources and talents. Our Membership Class is designed for you to learn more about who we are and where we are headed. It is the perfect place to discover purpose and give you the opportunity to join our One Team!

SERVING
Serving is sacrificing your time and using your abilities to make a difference by joining the One Team. The One Team is our volunteer team which includes anyone who serves in any capacity for our church. Everyone has a part to play in the life of HighRidge. God created each of us uniquely with spiritual gifts to be used to serve others. Use your gifts to make a difference!  

LEADERSHIP
Leadership is simply influence! If you are actively encouraging others and helping them grow in their relationship with Christ, you are a leader. A great way to step into leadership is to lead a Group and help people take their next step in their spiritual journey.
