Vision & Values  

Why Are We Here?  JESUS CHRIST! 
Highland Park UMC has a long history of being a strong presence in the city of Dothan.  We exist for one reason...the transforming power of Jesus Christ.  We care about the community.   We care about you.   


Our Purpose
"To make disciples of Jesus Christ
for the transformation of the world."


 "Therefore, go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit.  Teach these new disciples to obey all the commands I have given you.  And be sure of this: I am with you always, even to the end of the age."    
- Matthew 28:19-20

with low living,
sight walking, small planning, smooth knees, colorless dreams,

learn by faith, love by patience,
lift by prayer, and labor by power.
My pace is set,
My gait is fast,
My goal is heaven,
My road is narrow,
My companions few,
My guide reliable.

I will not flinch in the face
of sacrifice,

of adversity,
or negotiate at the table

I must go until Heaven returns,
give until I drop,
preach until all know,
and work until He comes.
And when He comes,
He will have no trouble
recognizing me,
for my colors are clear.

I am a disciple of
