Welcome to Highland Baptist

People who have encountered the extraordinary love of Jesus Christ and the transforming power of His gospel. We are still stunned by the good news that His mercy, forgiveness, joy, hope, wisdom, power, forever life and more have been freely given to us—and are available for everyone!

Jesus and His gospel are at the core of everything we are and everything we do. It’s steadily transforming our lives. None of us have this thing figured out, but we’re committed to helping people of every life stage grow as disciples of Jesus and live life as God designed it.

Jesus and His gospel bind a very diverse group of people into a loving faith-family. We are old and young, single and married, rich and poor, new parents, empty-nesters and grandparents, blue-collar and white-collar, employed and unemployed, long-time Christians and not-quite-sure faith-explorers, Cards & Kats fans. In other words, there’s somebody here like you!

Jesus and His gospel propels us to love all people in our world and serve their everyday needs. We’re jumping into the stuff of life in our neighborhoods, schools, ball fields, golf courses and workplaces. At the same time, we’re also going where Jesus goes among the poor and broken of our community, and where people don’t yet know Him among the nations of the world.

What should I wear?

Some who attend are comfortable in casual attire (in the summer, you’ll see lots of shorts) while others are more comfortable with more traditional clothing (coats and ties or dresses). Please feel free to come “as you are."

I have children, do you have childcare during services?

Children younger than age 3 will receive care during the Sunday School hour in our Nursery and Toddler room. Nursery and Toddler care is also provided during our 10:30AM Worship service. Parents who utilize the Nursery/Toddler care service are provided a pager so that nursery workers can contact them if a need arises with their child. We also offer a "Listen and Learn" room that allows parents with young children to hear the sermon while watching through a sound-proof window.

What denomination is Highland Baptist?

Our church is associated with the Southern Baptist Convention and we affirm the 2000 Baptist Faith and Message. The Southern Baptist Convention is the largest association of Christian churches in Kentucky. One out of every 10 churches in America is affiliated with the SBC (40,000 churches and 15 million members).
