Growth

The Growth Track is our six step process to help launch you into your God-given destiny.
You are an important part of God's plan, and your life will never make sense until you
discover your purpose. Learn more about each step below.

 



Above all else, salvation will always be the first step. This is the first step in our HighRidge Growth Track.
Nothing else matters if you do not have a life in Christ. This is the easiest and most fulfilling step you can take.
Here at HighRidge, our number-one goal for everyone is the gift of salvation.

Salvation is a gift from God to man. Man can never atone (or make up) for his sin by self-improvement,
nor can he earn his salvation through good works. Only by trusting in Jesus Christ can man be saved from the
penalty of sin which is eternal separation from God. Everlasting life and fellowship with God begins the
moment you receive Jesus Christ into your life by repenting of your sins and confessing your faith.

Scriptures: John 14:6 | Acts 4:11-12 | 2 Corinthians 5:17 | Matthew 16:25

Also, we want to encourage you to take the next step in your relationship with Christ and be water baptized.
This is the second step in our HighRidge Growth Track. Find out more information on baptisms below.

 



Once we have committed our lives to Christ, the Bible clearly instructs us to signify that commitment through
 baptism. Baptism allows us to, first and foremost, identify with Christ and, secondly, with the local body
of believers. Baptism is the second step of the HighRidge Growth Track.

Water baptism says, “I want to live for Jesus and not just for myself!” If you have given your life to Christ
and you haven’t been water baptized, we want to encourage you to get water baptized. This is a huge step
in your walk with Christ, and we’d love to celebrate it with you!

What is the meaning of baptism?
Baptism illustrates Christ’s burial and resurrection. [Colossians 2:12]

Who should be baptized?
Every person who believes in Christ as their personal Lord and Savior. [Acts 2:41 | Acts 8:12]

Why should I be baptized?
To signify that you have received new life through Christ. [Romans 6:4]
To follow the example set by Christ. [Mark 1:9]
Christ calls us to be baptized. [Matthew 28:19]

Why should I be baptized by immersion?
Christ was baptized by immersion, therefore, we should be also.
[Matthew 3:16]
Every baptism in the Bible was by immersion. ‘Baptizo’ in Greek literally translates to: immerse or dip under water.

When should I be baptized?
As soon as possible after you have accepted Jesus Christ as your Lord and Savior.

What if I have already been baptized?
If you have been water baptized, your next step is to enter into community with other believers.
Groups are the next step in the HighRidge Growth Track.

 



HighRidge Groups are the third step in the HighRidge Growth Track. They offer the opportunity for biblical
community through Bible study, fellowship, communion and prayer. Our hope is for you to be surrounded
by people where you can openly share the joys and struggles of life with as we pursue Christ together.
We have seen first-hand how lives are transformed when people meet together for the purpose of connecting
relationally and growing spiritually. Regardless of your age, stage, or even location, we have a place for you!

Groups are designed to connect people with one another and the Lord. Our model for group ministry is the
early church. The book of Acts records the tremendous growth of the first church in Jerusalem. Group meetings
in homes were the foundation of the early church.

Scripture: Acts 5:42

Want to find a group to join? Fill out the form on the Contact Us page, or check out our Groups page.

The first three steps are all about developing you. The next three steps in the HighRidge Growth Track are
about developing others. The next step is Membership Class where you can find your fit in the church body.

 



Our vision at HighRidge is for the Word of God to truly become a way of life, as we move forward from salvation
all the way to leadership. This is the heartbeat behind everything we do. We accomplish this vision by
leading people through our HighRidge Growth Track and encouraging them to do the same.

Our Membership Class is designed for you to learn more about this vision and our culture. It is also a time
for you to discover your place at HighRidge and give you the opportunity to join our Dream Team!

What should I expect at Membership Class?
    -Free food, free childcare, and a chance to meet great people
    -To discover your giftings and strengths

Serving is the next step on our HighRidge Growth Track.




Serving is the fifth step in our HighRidge Growth Track. God gives each of us the ability to meet the needs
of others and we are each created with spiritual gifts which are to be used to serve others. Even if it only
seems like a small role, every team member has a part to play in the life of our church. God uniquely gifted
you to contribute to the local church. There is no better time than now to take the next step and serve.

Scripture: Mark 10:45

Leadership is simply influence! At HighRidge Church, we take leadership seriously and encourage every person to be a positive
influence in the lives of people around them. If you are actively encouraging others and helping them grow in their
relationship with Christ by taking steps in the Growth Track you are a leader. As a follower of Jesus we have been
commanded to fulfill the great commission of making disciples and we do this by encouraging everyone to
take their next step in the Growth Track.

Matthew 28:18-20 NLT
Jesus came and told his disciples, “I have been given all authority in heaven and on earth.
Therefore, go and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and the Son
and the Holy Spirit. Teach these new disciples to obey all the commands I have given you.
And be sure of this: I am with you always, even to the end of the age.”

Hebrews 13:7 NLT
Remember your leaders who taught you the word of God. Think of all the good that has come from their lives,
and follow the example of their faith.
