Our Story, Mission, & Values

Our Story

Highrock began in 1999 around a dinner table. A small group of believers shared a dream for a church where people of all backgrounds, ages, and ethnicities could encounter Jesus. In time, this small group became a congregation, outgrowing several spaces in Cambridge and Somerville. In the Spring of 2006, Highrock set down roots in Arlington, the current site of our main campus. 

Redeemer Community Church (RCC) also began in the homes of a small group of people who were passionate about a fresh experience of Christian community in MetroWest Boston. After launching in 2004, they moved from living rooms to worship spaces in Wellesley, then Needham. 

In 2017, Highrock adopted RCC to create a dynamic and welcoming Christ-centered community with the aim of ministering specifically to those living in the MetroWest region.  

The resulting campus, Highrock MetroWest, joins the diverse and growing spiritual network of congregations worshiping and serving in four locations across Greater Boston and online. We're excited about Jesus and what He can do through the lives of ordinary people. We hope you’ll take the time to get to know us and join in what God is doing at Highrock!


Our Mission

Everything we do at Highrock is driven by our mission to create communities that encourage questions & inspire each other to love like Jesus.

Our Logo

The combination of an upwardly directed arrow, a house, and a starburst, our logo is representative of the three core aspects of what we are all about: Transformation through connecting to God personally, connecting to God's people, and connecting to God's purposes.

The Highrock House logo is explained. The House represents Connecting to God personally, the Upward arrow refers to God's people, and the Splash refers to God's purposes
