Ministry is what Jesus Christ called us, as His disciples, to do. It is when we actively take part in touching peoples lives with what the Lord has done for us. Highland Baptist Temple has goal for Highland, and the world, to fulfill it's potential for ministry. Many folks have gotten the wrong impression of what "church" is all about. The idea that a church is there to pay the communitys' bills and buy their groceries is demeaning, and is not what the Lord intended when he instituted the church ministry. At Highland Baptist Temple our first and foremost ministry is to reach souls with the gospel of Jesus Christ, that they may have the opportunity to make the informed decision for their eternal life. We do this through our church-wide visitation program Thursday nights at 6:00pm, and as well as our support of missionaries around the world. We want to take the opportunities God gives us to reach out to people. Our Wednesday night prayer meetings are a spiritual ministry, with people being touched by the hand of God in their lives through intercession. The transportation ministry is more of a physically direct outreach to help people get to our church services that they may learn and grow in the Lord. We always want to do our best to address our needy in the church. According to the Bible, these are the widows and the fatherless. Our ministry is to be the light set upon the hill, bringing attention to the Lord Jesus Christ.
