Our Story, Vision, and Values

Our Story

One of the things we Highrockers like to do from time to time is to tell our lifestories. We talk about the good times, the hard times, and the ways we’ve seen God move, redeem, and transform our lives.  

And as a church, we have a lifestory too. Our story starts long before our church did, all the way back in 1999 when we were just a twinkle in our parent church’s eye. A small group of Christians from a hodgepodge of different backgrounds gathered together at a home in Needham on a street called High Rock.  But despite their differences, they shared a common vision that God could actually do something new through them in Greater Boston.  


Creating Communities that encourage questions & inspire each other to love like Jesus.


The original vision of the church has remained strong over the years and is encapsulated in a single simple statement: Transformation through Connecting with God Personally, God's People, and God's Purposes.

The combination of an upwardly directed arrow, a house, and a starburst 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.

Through corporate worship, community involvement, and personally investing in the lives of one another, we at Highrock hope to be a real reflection of God's love from our spot on the North Shore.
