Highland Missionary Baptist Church was born on the second Sunday of September 1968 when a small group of people assembled and entered into a sacred covenant, vowing to God that they would faithfully obey His command to ” Go, evangelize, baptize, and disciple” the people of our community and beyond. Since that day by the grace of God , we are still here earnestly contending for the faith which was once delivered to the saints. Over the years thousands of sermons have been preached and Bible lessons taught. Many souls have repented of sin, believed the Gospel and embraced Jesus Christ as their Lord and Savior. Missionaries have been sent and supported prayerfully and financially. A multitude of prayers have been offered and many tears shed for the cause of Christ. The people in this church love God and are as determined as those saints who went before them to be faithful to God’s call. With that as our motivation we continue to stand unified in our resolve to passionately follow Christ, for “He only is our rock and our salvation. He is our defense and we shall not be greatly moved .” Psalm 62:2.
Highland Missionary Baptist Church is an independent Baptist church in Gainesville, Florida. The pastor is Richard Hartmann.
