Welcome to HIGHLANDS

Our mission is simple.
We're venturing to follow Jesus together.
We'd be honored if you joined us.


Following Jesus Together

We believe the central action to our life of faith is the pursuit of Christ together.  He calls us to follow His way, in all things at all times.  


To Show The World What God Is Like

We believe the ultimate purpose for our life of faith is to glorify God with every word and deed.  God made us, saved us, and re-created us to reveal His goodness, and show the world what He is really like in ways only we can.


So The Lost Can Be Found And The Found Can Be Free

We believe the greatest possible end for our life of faith is to be found in God’s love, and to live free through His spirit.  All of God’s investment and intention points to this vision for the world.

Next Steps At

Highlands Church

We might not do everything, but what we DO we are intentional with. We encourage you to step in anywhere you are comfortable; we have a seat for you.



Checking out a new church can be more than a little nerve wracking.  “What should I wear?  Where should I park?  And WHERE ARE THE BATHROOMS!?”  
We get it, so we go out of our way to make your first time visiting as smooth as possible.  

We have an abundance of onsite parking, with signage that leads you into the building through an outer courtyard.  Once inside, directions are clearly marked as you make your way into the lobby for information or a great cup of coffee.  For real, it’s incredible coffee.  The lobby is also perfectly suited for connecting with friends, or even watching service with your small children 

If you have kids, we have an exciting program just for them upstairs in our secure kids wing called “Church Kids.”  There, the kids will learn about Jesus and what it means to follow Him in ways that are relevant to their age or grade.  (Note: All team members are background checked)

The worship gathering or “church service” is typically 75-90 minutes, filled with singing, communion, prayer, scripture, and a sermon.  It all happens in a beautifully modern, yet historic auditorium with hybrid seating.  Grab a spot wherever you want, on a chair or a pew.  

After the gathering, there is time for prayer or continued time of connection in the lobby. We hope you’ll join us!  But if you’d like to check it out online first, head over to our YouTube channel, or watch our livestream.



Each week we gather on Sundays for our weekend service. But what about the rest of the week? And how can I get more connected to the community? Midweek is our answer to both of those questions.

We start off eating together at 6 pm. Because eating together is a great way to get to know one another. Around 6:30 those with school age kids can take them to AWANA. From 7-8pm, in a social size small group, we begin discussing the practice for that week. There is teaching, dialogue, and practical application.

The goal is that we would take what Jesus has called us to do and put it into practice in our everyday lives. Midweek is an opportunity for all of us to grow closer in community and go farther in our commitment to Jesus. We hope you will join us as we follow Jesus together!



The easiest way to find your place at Highlands is to join a team. 

We weren’t made to do this life of faith alone.  God made us for community, connection, and to contribute who we are to show the world what He is like! 

Everyone is essential to make the church what God wants it to be, so join a team! 



We believe ministries are an important aspect of church life.  They are a place to serve and be served.  A place to connect and be connected.  A place to grow and a place to be rooted. Find more information on our ministries here.

Hello.  We’re the Johnsons, and we’re so grateful you decided to stop by.  Wherever you are on your journey of faith, we want you to know that you’re welcome at Highlands Church.  Why?  Because God loves you and so do we.  

We know the pace of life can be crazy, and things don’t always work out the way we plan.  We know parenting can be hard and relationship can be confusing.  We know faith can be scary as we try to make sense of the world.  

We get it.  That’s why we’re here.  To make a way through the wild, so the lost can be found and the found can be free.

Because even with all the questions, we believe there’s an answer, and His name is Jesus.  
So… come and see what God is like, as we follow Jesus together.

What We Value:


Jesus Is Our Message

There is no greater news than the Gospel of Jesus and His kingdom come.  This message literally changed the course of human history and our future eternity.  Jesus is our Savior, Lord, and Teacher.  We are His people, alive to share His message from here to heaven.

People Are Our Passion

matthew 28:19-20
Our vision is to be a place where the lost can be found, and the found can be free.  A church for anyone, knowing full well we won’t be a church for everyone.  We long to be an anchor for connection and community in a world without God and without hope.

Future Is Our Focus

john 16:13
We choose to see and believe that anything is possible with the power of the Holy Spirit.  That God has spoken a better ending and always only leads to peace.  This perspective forces us to see the world with optimistic eyes.  Focusing on this one thing, forgetting the past and looking forward to the future.

Honor Is Our Action

romans 12:9-10
We believe God made all of humanity with dignity and worth, so in reply we choose to honor always.  To acknowledge the identity and worth of anyone God puts in our way, independent of situation or circumstance.

Service Is Our Standard

romans 12:13
God has given everyone a unique set of passions and skills to serve His church.  This means, from the pulpit to the parking lot, everyone is essential.  No one is above serving, and there is no service too small.  Every role matters and contributes to the future God is building.

Humility Is Our Heartbeat

romans 12:16
In everything we do, we must approach it from a posture of humility.  While everyone is essential, no one is above another.  Regardless of worldly success or influence, the reality is we all find ourselves daily at the mercy of the King.   So let us bow, laying all we are down on the altar before Him

Gratitude Is Our Attitude

colossians 3:15-17
In a world where selfish entitlement is the norm, it’s up to us to be a people of gratitude.  To see what’s before us and respond with appreciation.  We must carry an optimistic vision if we’re to be the church God is calling us to be.

Generosity Is Our Privilege

Acts 2:46-47
We believe in giving more than the minimum.  We see generosity coming straight from the Father’s heart, which makes it not only an expectation for God’s people… but a privilege.  We choose to be generous with our time, our talents, our treasure and encouragement.  After all, we can’t take anything with us.

HIGHLANDS is a multi-generational church in the heart of La Crescenta. We exist so that the lost may be found, and the found may be free.
