To share Jesus with as many people as possible and develop dynamic disciples that love and live their lives in Christian maturity
To be disciples that make disciples
We were created to worship and bring glory to God our Creator. Our desire is to worship God in all that we do. Our weekly worship services are designed to allow you the opportunity to engage in powerful and meaningful worship through singing, praying, giving, and serving.
The gospel is the Good News that Jesus lived the life that we could not live, died the death that we should have died, and rose triumphantly from the grave to give us victory over sin, death, hell, and Satan. We seek to not only share this message with our community but also the world.
God did not just create us to believe but also to belong. We need each other for love, comfort, support, accountability, and encouragement. People were made with a need for community. Everyone has the opportunity to engage with a group of believers, to experience Christian growth, and to build meaningful friendships at High Street.
A disciple is a follower of Jesus. We are committed to being disciples of Christ. We seek to learn more about Jesus so that we can become more like Him and show His love to the world.
The Bible says that Jesus "went about doing good." We believe that Christians are called to be ambassadors as visible representations of Christ. God has called and equipped everyone to serve others as Christ did. We seek to serve as Christ served and love as Christ loved.
believe the Holy Scriptures, composed of the thirty-nine books of the
Old Testament and the twenty-seven books of the New Testament, are the
verbally inspired Word and Revelation of God. We believe that the Bible
is the inerrant, infallible, and inspired Word of God and is therefore
the final authority in all of our faith and practices. We also believe
that the miracle of this divine inspiration also extends to the divine
preservation of a pure text to this day. Therefore, we believe and stand
firmly that we have the very Word of God preserved in the King James Bible
for the English-speaking people.
(Psalm 19:7-11; II Timothy 3:16-17; II Peter 1:16-21; Luke 24:13-28; John 16:12-16; Psalm 12:6-7; Isaiah 40:8; Psalm 138)
believe that there is one and only one living and true God: an infinite, intelligent Spirit, the Maker and supreme Ruler of heaven and earth, inexpressibly glorious in holiness and worthy of all possible
honor, confidence, and love. In the unity of the Godhead there are three
persons: the Father, the Son, and the Holy Ghost, which is the
Trinity. Each of the three entities is equal in power, deity, and
1:1; Matthew 28:19; John 4:24; 10:30; 15:26; 17:5; Acts 5:3-4; Romans
11:23; I Corinthians 8:6; II Corinthians 13:14; 4:6; I John 5:7-8)
believe in the eternal Deity and personality of the Holy Spirit, who is
one of the three Persons of the Trinity. We believe the following are
among His ministries: the restraining of evil in the world to the
measure of the divine will; the conviction of the world regarding sin,
righteousness, and judgment; the calling and regeneration of all
believers; the indwelling of those who are saved; and, the continued
filling for power, teaching, and service of all among the saved who are
truly yielded to Him. We believe the Holy Spirit produces His fruit in
the lives of all believers.
8:28, 29; I Corinthians 1:24; II Thessalonians 2:7; John 3:6; John
16:7-11; Romans 8:9; Ephesians 4:30, 5:18; Galatians 5:22, 23;
Colossians 1:10, 12)
believe in the Deity of Jesus Christ, that he was supernaturally
begotten by the Holy Spirit, born of a virgin, and that he is God and man at the same time. We believe that the entire life of Jesus
Christ was spent free from sin. He was not only sinless
in nature but also sinless in deed, thought, and performance. This qualifies Him to be the only Savior of mankind, as no other person has
ever, will ever, or shall ever, be able to meet this just demand of God for a
(Matthews 1:20-21; Luke 1:35-36; Luke 2:10-11; John 1:14; John 3:16-18; I John 4:9; John 8:46; John 18:38; Matthew 17:5)
believe when Jesus gave His life on Calvary. He died for all
mankind and declared that those who trust Him as Savior will be
righteous in the sight of God.
(John 3:16, John 10:17-18, Romans 5:1, Hebrews 9:22-28)
believe salvation is received when a person willingly and sincerely repents (changes his mind) and places his trust in the Lord Jesus Christ as Savior.
(Acts 20:21; Romans 10:9-10; Ephesians 2:8-9; John 1:12)
believe in the bodily resurrection of Jesus Christ after His
death on the cross. Christ’s ability to rise from the dead by His own power
gives us assurance that He will also resurrect those who trust Him for
salvation into heaven.
28:1-10; Mark 16:1-6; Luke 24:1-7; John 11:25-26; John
20-21; I Corinthians 15:1-8, 51-57; I Thessalonians 4:13-18; Revelation
believe man was created in the image of God and voluntarily sinned, and thereby incurred not only physical death but also spiritual death.
Man’s sinful nature separates him from God and sentences him to an everlasting hell. All human beings are born with a sin nature. Those who reach moral responsibility are sinners by choice. Sin creates a
debt which no man can pay for himself.
(Romans 3:23; Romans 5:12; Genesis 1:26-27; I Corinthians 11:7; Psalm 51:5)
believe that at the very moment an individual puts his trust in Christ,
he is born into the family of God. He is redeemed by Jesus's death on the cross and eternally preserved in Christ.
(John 10:28-29; Romans 8:38-39; John 5:24; Ephesians 1:13; Ephesians 4:30)
believe our Lord’s return is literal, personal, and imminent. He will
rapture the dead in Christ first, and then the living saints will be
caught up together to meet the Lord in the air prior to the seven years
of tribulation. At the end of the tribulation, Christ will return with
His saints to establish His thousand-year reign on the earth.
Thessalonians 4:13-18; Titus 2:13; I Thessalonians 1:10; Revelation
3:10; Zechariah 14:4-11; Revelation 19:11-16; Revelation 20:1-6; Psalm
believe that Jesus Christ established the church during His ministry on
earth. It is a local, visible assembly of saved, baptized believers to carry out the great
commission. Each church is an independent, self-governing body.
Jesus gave the great commission to the New Testament church, and He
promised perpetuity of the church.
(Matthew 4:18-22; Matthew 16:18; Matthew 28:19-20; Ephesians 3:21)
believe each person who trusts Christ as their Savior should promptly make a public profession. Each new believer should follow the Lord's command for baptism by immersion under the authority of a local New Testament church.
Baptism does not save, but it is the Lord’s way for us to identify with him. Baptism is a symbolic
representation of the death, burial, and resurrection of
(Matthew 10:32-33; Matthew 28:18-20; Luke 9:23; Acts 16:30-34; Romans 10:9-10)
believe Christ gave the church two ordinances: baptism
and the Lord’s Supper. We use unleavened bread and unfermented fruit of the vine to commemorate the death of Christ. This is the time for Christians to examine themselves.
28:19-20; Acts 8:12; I Corinthians 5:11-13; I Corinthians 11:23-29;
Matthew 3:6; Matthew 3:16; Matthew 28:19-20; John 3:23; Acts 2:41-42;
8:36-39; Romans 6:3-5; I Corinthians 11:23-28)
believe that saved people should live in a manner that does not bring
reproach upon their Savior. God commands Christians to separate from the world.
