Welcome to Virginia-Highland Church

We are a Progressive Community of Faith. No matter where you are on life's journey, you are welcome here!

Rev. Michael Piazza, Senior Pastor

Virginia-Highland Church is a progressive and inclusive community of faith in the heart of the city that gave us such civil rights heroes as Nobel Peace Prize-winners Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. and President Jimmy Carter. This church seeks to embody the values of justice and peace for which they both worked so hard. This congregation stood up for the inclusion of women, and lesbian, gay, and transgender folks and, as a result, had to give up their place in the Southern Baptist and Georgia Baptist Conventions. Courage such as that should be honored.

Today the church has witnessed a rebirth and renewal that has been energizing and challenging. We have grown into a vibrant and diverse community, anchored by our progressive faith and vision . If you are looking for a place where you can make a difference, this may be it. That is why we are here, and we invite you to find out if this is where you belong, too. No matter where you are on life’s journey, you are welcome here.

We were not able to be present for the resurrection of Jesus; however, we now have a chance to participate in the resurrection of this part of the Body of Christ. If you are looking for a place where your life can have greater, perhaps even eternal, meaning, we hope we will see you Sunday morning at 11:00!
