You marched, Atlanta. Nice job. Well done.
Virginia-Highland Church is a progressive and inclusive community of faith in the heart of Atlanta – a city that gave us such civil rights heroes as Nobel Peace Prize-winners Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. and President Jimmy Carter. We seek to embody the values of justice and peace for which they both worked so hard. Our congregation has a rich history of standing 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. We honor the courage of those who led those efforts.
Today the church has witnessed a rebirth and renewal that has been energizing. 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.
