The purpose of Highland Bible Church is to glorify the God of the Scriptures by maintaining and promoting His worship both individually and corporately. To that end, we are committed to the proclamation of the whole counsel of God and the glorious Gospel of His grace throughout all the world, and “to contend for the faith that was once for all delivered to the saints.”
God has graciously entered into a covenant relationship with His people. Jesus Christ is the Mediator of the New Covenant. Through His blood shed on the cross, the New Covenant infallibly secures all the benefits of the covenant for all of God’s people. In this New Covenant God has made us members one of another. Therefore, we have covenant responsibilities to each other, as well as to God. God has promised in this covenant to write His laws in our hearts and to cause us to walk in His ways; that is, to enable us to walk according to His statutes with all sincerity. The motivation and ability to sincerely obey God’s law springs from the atoning sacrifice of Jesus Christ, who, by His death, satisfied the holy wrath of God that was against us due to our sins. It is by the enablement of the Holy Spirit that we obey, in loving gratitude for Christ’s righteousness, which has been imputed to us, and not to establish our own righteousness before God. We obey with the confidence that the goal of Christ’s death will be realized in us; that is, “that the righteousness of the law might be fulfilled in us” and that we should be a people “zealous for good works”. We as individuals or as a corporate body will never attain perfection in this life and thus we should always be thankful for His marvelous gift of forgiveness given to undeserving sinners.
