Highlands Statement of Welcome

As a congregation of the Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.) we honor its Constitutional invitation to all who seek affiliation: “A congregation shall welcome all persons who trust in God’s grace in Jesus Christ and desire to become part of the fellowship and ministry of his Church. No person shall be denied membership for any reason not related to profession of faith.”

Highlands Presbyterian Church (HPC) recognizes and welcomes all people regardless of race, color, national origin, ethnicity, cultural history, gender, political affiliation, economic condition, age, appearance, disability, and sexual orientation. HPC celebrates the differences in each of us and our unique contribution to the work of this congregation.

We invite all who wish to find a church home to discover it at Highlands Presbyterian Church in Columbus, Ohio.
