Greetings with the joy of Jesus!

Welcome to the web site of the First Baptist Church of Highland Park. We count it as an extreme blessing to have you join us today so you can witness an exciting Ministry that is “Bible Believing, Christ Centered, & Spirit Led” and on the move for the cause of Christ.

Every time we enter the First Baptist Highland Park Sanctuary we experience the power of God and that is evidenced when Cynics become Seekers, Seekers become Believers and Believers becomes Achievers. It is extremely clear that “There’s Power at The Park!”

Growing in the love of Jesus Christ is paramount in our church we place great emphasis on Missions, Evangelism, Bible Study, Prayer, Praise, and Worship. Our belief is that Disciples at First Baptist should go beyond a mere surface faith and make sure that their lives are in line with the will of God, seeking to have a Faith Forward approach in Ministry, possessing a Kingdom mentality. A membership mentality must be transitioned to a discipleship lifestyle.

Our goal is to be Disciples of Jesus Christ and not just Members of the local church. We serve a global God and that is why we must be visionary, proactive, and progressive in our approach to sharing the Gospel of Jesus Christ. This is a vibrant and expansive Ministry that continues to reach higher and higher in the name of the Lord.

Praise is preeminent at “The Park” and it such a blessing to witness the energy that exudes through the entire First Baptist Highland Park Campus on Sundays and throughout the week.

First Baptist Church of Highland Park seeks to minister to the entire Body of Christ, as our church is extremely diverse and has relevant ministries for all age groups. At the core of everything we do is the Gospel of Jesus Christ. Thank you for your prayers, presence, and participation in that which God has called us to do, because we know that this is a special church that is filled with the love of the Lord.
