Welcome to the Highline Community Church website! I’m glad you took the time to check us out. I’d like to tell you a little about what is going on at 6160 S. Wabash Way.
We are a Bible teaching church. Someone told me our motto should be “we teach, not preach”. There is nothing wrong with the traditional preaching style where the pastor gives a “message”. It just isn’t our emphasis. I believe that people need to know and understand the Bible, so our emphasis is more on a teaching the Bible in a way that people can understand it and apply it to their daily lives.
We are a church that also emphasizes worship. Our style is contemporary, but we also sing the classic hymns of the faith. Our worship team is led by Biff Gore, and he has assembled a world-class worship team. As we worship, we attempt to connect people with God in a way that is honoring to him, and uplifting for you.
We are a church that is working to build community. To that end we have monthly brunches that are designed to be a first step toward getting to know and love a few friends. We also have a wide range of smaller groups, classes, and events during the week to help you experience authentic fellowship and know that if you have a crisis, there are people who will have your back. Make sure and check out what is available under the “Ministry” section of this site.
We believe that “ church” is not an end in itself. In the New Testament, the weekly gathering of the believers was a time of refreshing and equipping that launched a week of ministry and service outside the doors of the church building or gathering place. We are committed to service and ministry and believe that every member is a minister. As a result, we try to provide many opportunities to share the love of Christ in the community, the city, the nation, and the world.
I believe we are a friendly and welcoming place, and we will try to make you feel at home when you come visit. We won’t put you on the spot or put pressure on you. I believe that people need to find a church home where they feel like they “fit”, and are being spiritually fed and challenged. For some of you, Highline might be that place. So, I invite you to come check us out.
