About Highlands Church Denver

Our Mission: To do justice, love kindness and walk humbly with God. (Micah 6:8)

Highlands Church is a progressive Christian church rooted in a Trinitarian understanding of God with roots in the evangelical traditions of worship.

People who call Highlands Church home find themselves on a wide spectrum of beliefs. While making plenty of room for that, the teachings of HC are grounded in the beliefs about God consistent with the early followers of Jesus as expressed in the Apostle’s Creed:

I believe in God, the Father Almighty,
the Creator of heaven and earth,
and in Jesus Christ, His only Son, our Lord:
Who was conceived of the Holy Spirit,
born of the Virgin Mary,
suffered under Pontius Pilate,
was crucified, died, and was buried.
The third day He arose again from the dead.
He ascended into heaven
and sits at the right hand of God the Father Almighty,
and He will come to judge the living and the dead.
I believe in the Holy Spirit, the holy *catholic church,
the communion of saints,
the forgiveness of sins,
the resurrection of the body, and life everlasting.
*catholic in this context simply means universal

As a community, we are committed to living relationally according to the values of our Ethos:

Married, divorced and single here, it’s one family that mingles here.
Conservative and liberal here, we’ve all gotta give a little here.
Big and small here, there’s room for us all here.
Doubt and believe here, we all can receive here.
LGBTQ and straight here, there’s no hate here
Woman and man here, everyone can here.
Whatever your race here, for all of us grace here.
In imitation of the ridiculous love Almighty God has for each of us and all of us,
let us live and love without labels!

Our mission is to equip and inspire everyone to do justice, love kindness, and walk humbly with God, knowing that each person is gifted to do this in a unique way. We have many ways to partner within Highlands Church towards these ends, and we believe that all of us have opportunities to live this mission outside of this faith community.
