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 church continued to multiply, and over the next 12 years, planted churches all over greater Boston, and even in Tokyo! Today Highrock exists as a dynamic and diverse spiritual community with congregations worshiping and serving in several locations across Greater Boston and online. We’re one church, with multiple expressions, excited about what Jesus 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!
Everything we do at Highrock is driven by our mission to create communities that encourage questions & inspire each other to love like Jesus. This can be summed up in three simple words:
Our essential beliefs are outlined in what is called Covenant Affirmations. Their purpose is to make clear the values and principles that have guided Highrock since the beginning.
Over the years Highrock has planted multiple churches in the Greater Boston Area, each of which began as a Highrock congregation or “campus.” Many of these congregations have now been sent out to operate as independent churches, though remaining as “siblings” under a shared denomination. We cherish these churches and are grateful for our history together!

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 Love Mercy, Do Justice team at Highrock is dedicated to helping Highrock listen to and learn from those on the margins and respond as an institution that upholds a more just and merciful vision of the Kingdom of God.
