Our Story

Highland Baptist Church has faithfully served it's community and the greater Hickory area since it was founded in 1912 with 20 charter members and their families. Highland has a huge heart for Hickory and is regularly serving the city by being the "hands and feet" of Jesus in many different ways. Our passion is that God would use us to be a beacon of hope to this area, and that He would open doors so that we could bring our community closer to Jesus.
