Gospel Centered - (John 3:16; Rom. 1:16,17; Eph. 2:1-10)
We believe the Gospel: the good news that God’s love for us is so great that He gave His Son Jesus Christ for us, and that our salvation and adoption as His children is based solely on Christ’s work on our behalf and not our own effort or goodness sets us free. The Gospel frees us to stop taking ourselves too seriously and enables us to truly love all our neighbors and invite them to experience His grace.
Biblically Grounded - (2 Tim. 3:16-17; 2 Pet. 1:20-21; Heb. 4:12)
We believe the Bible is God’s self-revelation and thus authoritative over the church and indeed all people. The Bible is the Truth by which all other truths, words, and wisdom are to be measured and judged. The Bible is living and active, the ordinary means by which God speaks to His people today. Therefore our life together is rooted in God’s Word.
Intentional Discipleship - (Matt. 28:18-20; 2 Pet. 3:18; Heb. 6:1; Col. 1:9-10)
We are in Christ, disciples of Jesus - intentional about growing in faith and love. As disciples we are committed to encouraging others by inviting them into a relationship with Jesus and encouraging them to grow.
Grace-filled Community - (Acts 2:42; John 13:34-35; 1 John 4:11; Rom. 12:4-5)
We believe that the church is made up of very different people (generationally, racially, ethnically, culturally, educationally) who have nevertheless been made into one family in Christ. Therefore we seek to embody this reality by being a multi-generational church where people from all different backgrounds exhibit God’s grace in our common life: encouraging, loving, supporting, and forgiving one another as we share in life’s joys and sorrows.
Relentless Mission - (John 20:21; Luke 10:2; Acts 1:8; Gal. 6:9)
We believe that Highline Church does not exist for the members of Highline Church. We are a mission community existing to love our neighbors in our neighborhood, city, and the world, by embodying the gospel in deeds of love and words of grace and truth.
