Why does it matter what a church believes? What is the benefit of knowing and understanding doctrine? Isn't that just for the theologian and the scholar to debate? 

We feel that as a church, and as individual believers, we must give close attention to the Word of God--adhering to its doctrine in every area of our life so that we may grow in faith and understanding. 

"Watch your life and your doctrine closely.
Persevere in them, because if you do, you will save both
yourself and your hearers."

1 Timothy 4:16 


The Bible is completely adequate by itself to serve as the guide for our beliefs and way of living. Highpoint Community Church is part of the fellowship of the Assemblies of God. As part of that fellowship we adhere to the Constitution and By-Laws of the Assemblies of God and the Statement of 16 Fundamental Truths. 

The following condensed version of the Statement of 16 Fundamental Truths is intended to bring clarity and summary to the non-negotiable tenets of our faith. The full statement, as it appears in the Constitution of the Assemblies of God, is intended to be the common basis for our fellowship and unity. (1 Corinthians 1:10; Acts 2:42) 

All of our fundamental truths are based on God's Word (the Bible) and highlight basic fundamental teaching which we consider vital to successful Christian living.

JOHN 3:16

"For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life."



We believe in one God who exists in three persons: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. The concept of one God or Being of three persons is called the
Trinity. God is infinite, which does not always make sense to our finite understanding. He is not limited by time or space. He is the Creator of Heaven and Earth and the One who redeems, saves or rescues mankind from sin and it's painful consequences. 



Jesus Christ is the second person of the Trinity, the eternal Son of God. The Scripture declares his virgin birth, his sinless life, His miracles, His substitutionary death on the cross, His bodily resurrection from the dead, and His exaltation to the right hand of God.



The Holy Spirit is an integral part of the Christian life. The third person of the Trinity, He is given to every follower of Christ to guide, comfort, convict and help us to grow into Christ-likeness. We believe that every Christ follower should earnestly seek and expect a subsequent experience called the baptism in the Holy Spirit. With it comes God's power which enables us to present Jesus to a world in need.



Comprised of 66 books authored over thousands of years by dozens of authors, the Bible tells one seamless story: a passionate God on a relentless pursuit to redeem His creation. The Bible is the authoritative and inspired Word of God and is trustworthy and reliable for telling us what to believe and how to live.



Sin separated humanity from God. Man was created in the image of God, however, by a voluntary act of the will, Adam and Eve disobeyed God. That first sin had several repercussions. Man was kicked out of the Garden of Eden, a curse was pronounced, the process of physical death began, and man died spiritually. Sin separated humanity from God and left humanity in a fallen, or sinful condition.



We were created in the image of God to have community with Him and represent Him on earth. However, through a willful act of disobedience, we were separated from Him. The Father sent Jesus to redeem us through an act of atonement which culminated with Jesus' death on the cross and resurrection from the dead. This gave us the opportunity to trade our sin for His righteousness through faith. Jesus' sacrifice is the only means for our salvation and reconciliation with the Father. 



The Church is the Body of Christ and Jesus is the head of the Body. The Church is not a building or an event but the community of individuals who have put their trust in Jesus Christ. The purpose of the Church is to glorify God, make disciples, make Jesus known to a lost world, and meet the needs of those in our communities and around the world. We celebrate baptism as a first step of obedience for new followers of Christ, in which they identify with Christ's death and resurrection and make a public declaration of their faith. We also celebrate communion as an ongoing remembrance of the sacrifice Jesus made for us on the cross. 



When we put our faith in Jesus Christ, it ignites a spiritual chain reaction and produces evidence of our salvation. We are forgiven of sin, declared right before God, and given eternal life with Him. The Holy Spirit is given to assure us of our salvation, adopt us into God's family, and to live in us and empower us for a life of following Jesus. As we follow Jesus, others can see evidence of His influence in our lives (the fruit of the Spirit) - love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self-control.



Baptism and communion are ordinances of the church and important to the life of every believer. 
BAPTISM IN WATER: The Scripture teaches that all who repent and believe in Christ are to be baptized by being immersed in water. Baptism is a public profession of faith in Christ. It is symbolic of the death, burial, and resurrection of Christ, and it is a declaration to the world that we have died to sin and have been raised with Christ to walk in newness of life. 


COMMUNION: The Lord's table consists of two elements: the bread and cup. Those elements are symbolic of the body and blood of Christ. Communion is a memorial of Christ's sufferings on the cross and a celebration of our salvation. it is an opportunity for a believer to examine oneself and repent in order to experience the forgiveness granted to us in the cross.



In the end of all things, Jesus will reign eternally. He will judge His creation according to the character that has been revealed in us through His word with justice and mercy. Those who have found salvation through Jesus Christ will enjoy His presence forever; those who have not will be separated from God for eternity. 


But God demonstrates his own love for us in this: While we were still sinners, Christ died for us.
