CHURCH MINISTRIES AND MISSIONS OPPORTUNITIES
New Highland Baptist Church is committed to being an Acts 1:8 church. Acts 1:8b states, “…and you will be my witnesses in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the ends of the earth.” Through our budgeted missions giving, we support missions of the Southern Baptist Convention (SBC) and the Cooperative Baptist Fellowship (CBF).
