OUR MISSION & VISION

TAKING RISKS TO PURSUE GOD AND LOVE LIKE JESUS

We believe that pursuing God with your whole heart can sometimes feel risky, but is always worth it. Jesus was a risk-taker. He risked humiliation, ridicule and most of all His life to reach the lost and to show them the love of God. We want to be a church willing to take these same risks to reach our community for Christ!

Our Story

Ours is a story of trusting and believing in an ever-faithful God and being willing to follow wherever He leads.

A STORY OF FAITH

God led a handful of believers and a bi-vocational pastor in 1952 to begin a house church. Two years later construction began on a building at 955 South Washington, and we became the First Church of God. By faith and the labor of willing volunteers, the church was completed and God filled the building with people.

OUR BEGINNINGS

God led a handful of believers and a bi-vocational pastor in 1952 to begin a house church. Two years later construction began on a building at 955 South Washington, and we became the First Church of God. By faith and the labor of willing volunteers, the church was completed and God filled the building with people.

THE DREAM CONTINUED

The dream continued and faith expanded when the small church stepped out again in 1975 to relocate to 12th and Missouri. Upon completion three years later, we took the name of the community we hoped to serve and became known as Highland Park Community Church.

As the congregation continued to thrive, the building was expanded several times until space limitations necessitated another relocation, this time to the vacant LaBelle’s building on 2nd Street. God honored our faithfulness and continued to bring significant growth and impact, not only in Casper but literally around the world.

WHERE WE ARE NOW

Over the course of two decades that building was remodeled, completed and filled to accommodate four-weekend worship services, vibrant children, and youth ministries, a life-changing counseling center called The Healing Place, over 100 community groups for youth and adults, and a Faith Promise Missions outreach that spanned the globe.

BUT THE STORY DIDN’T STOP THERE…

God brought us into a new house, the place we sit today, a house that HE built. But with this gift comes great responsibility. What now? How can we utilize this new “hub” to serve God? To serve others?

The beginning of the rest of our story starts today, and it begins with YOU.
