Highland Baptist Church

Who We Are

Shining the light of God's love to Moore and the ends of the earth.

A faith family that focuses our lives around Christ and His Word, passionately worshipping God and encouraging community based on the "one anothers" of the New Testament. We are committed to practical missions and service in our community and missions partnerships around the world.

Our Services

Service Times

  • 09:00am - This service includes a large student community and multi-generation adults.
  • 10:30am - This service is attended by all ages, but usually includes lots of younger families and children (children's church meets during this service).

What to Expect

What are services like?
Our worship time is celebrative and warm led by a contemporary worship band. Our pastor's preaching / teaching is mainly *expository with emphasis on practical application for real life. In two morning services a guest will see multi-generational believers worshipping together with lots of students, young families and children--who start out in worship with parents but are given the option of transitioning to and from Children's church (creative lessons & fun activities to involve children in the lesson). Children return to "big church" during the Offering time near the end of the service. *Expository preaching presents the meaning and intent of a Biblical text, providing commentary and examples to make the passage clear and understandable. The word exposition is related to the word expose — the expository preacher’s goal is simply to expose the meaning of the Bible, verse by verse.

What is the community like?
We are a multi-generational community with lots of young families with children and a large student community (7th - College). We are striving to be a "real" faith family that focuses our lives around Christ and His Word, passionately worshipping God and encouraging community based on the "one anothers" of the New Testament. Our family consists of people from all walks of life and all kinds of experiences who have been saved by the grace of God. We have tons of military families (we're located near Tinker AFB) and we love to support and encourage them as they serve and protect our country.

What if I'm not a Christian?
You are most welcome to come check us out! We hope you will feel "at home and welcomed" by a community who has found hope and meaning in our lives. We love to meet new friends and to explore the "universal questions" of life (Who am I? Why am I here? Where did I come from? Where am I going?) We consider ourselves to be a "hospital for sinners" and not a museum for saints. We're all in process together on this journey called life. If possible, we'd like to lighten your load or brighten your road!
