The Highlands Institute 







Statement of Faith








The Scripture

We believe in the scriptures of the Old and New Testament as being verbally and completely inerrant in the original writings and of supreme and final authority in faith and life (2 Timothy 3:16; 2 Peter 1:20-21).

One God

We believe in one God, eternally existing in three persons: Father, Son and Holy Spirit (Genesis 1:26; Deuteronomy 6:4; Matthew 28:19; 2 Corinthians 13:14).

Jesus Begotten of the Holy Spirit

We believe that Jesus Christ was begotten of the Holy Spirit and born of the Virgin Mary and is true God and true man (Matthew 1:18; Philippians 2:5-8).

Role of the Holy Spirit

We believe the Holy Spirit was sent by the Father as promised to convict the world of sin, to glorify Jesus and to transform the lives of believers into the likeness of Christ (John 16:7-8; John 16:14; Titus 3:5).

The State of Man

We believe that man was created in the image of God; that he sinned and thereby incurred not only physical death, but also spiritual death, which is separation from God; and that all human beings are born with a sinful nature (Romans 3:10; Romans 3:23; Romans 5:12).

The Substitutionary Atonement of Christ

We believe that the Lord Jesus died for our sins according to the scriptures as a representative and substitutionary sacrifice, and that all who believe in Him are redeemed and justified on the ground of His shed blood (Romans 5:8-9; 1 Corinthians 15:3-4).

Resurrection of the Lord

We believe in the resurrection of the crucified body of our Lord, His ascension into Heaven, and His present life for us as High Priest and Advocate (1 Corinthians 15:3-4; 1 John 2:1).

Belief and Faith

We believe that all who receive, by faith, the Lord Jesus Christ are born of the Holy Spirit and thereby children of God, a relationship in which they are eternally secure (John 10:27-30; Acts 16:30-31; Romans 8:31-39; Ephesians 2:8-9).


We believe in "believer’s baptism". That is, baptism is a conscious decision made by one who has already trusted Christ as their personal Savior (Acts 8:12).

The Reality of Heaven and Hell

We believe in the bodily resurrection of the just and of the unjust; the everlasting blessedness of the saved, and the everlasting conscious punishment of the lost, along with Satan and the other fallen angels (Acts 24:1, 1 Corinthians 3:11-15; 1 Corinthians 15:42; Revelation 20:11-15).

The Church

We believe that the Church is a spiritual organism made up of all believers in Christ that, in its local manifestation, it is an autonomous (self-governing) assembly (Ephesians 4:12, Hebrews 10:24-25, 1 Corinthians 12:12-31).

The Blessed Hope

We believe in the personal, pre-millennial, and imminent return of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ (Titus 2:13).
