Highland Park Baptist Church

Worship & Music

We are people, called by God, to worship Him with our whole hearts. This is the only response worthy of a God who granted us life!

We believe that worship is essential for connecting with God, praising God, and through the Holy Spirit, growing deeper in our faith in Christ.
While worship comes in various forms and includes few or many participants, all vital worship includes common elements such as praise to God, prayer, confession, teaching and ordinances, all of which express our willingness to offer ourselves as living sacrifices in response to God who shows us love and mercy. 
The language and format of worship must make God’s Word accessible and relevant to all who desire to hear it. 
We seek to be TRUE WORSHIPERS!
