Three of the church sanctuaries are standing in a row telling the story of growth in the church.  The first permanent church building was completed in 1922 under the leadership of Dr. J. B. Phillips.  The brick building shown here is now known as the Phillips Memorial Chapel.  Dr Phillips was paster until September of 1930.  The building next to Phillips Chapel was originally an airplane hanger and has a wonderful wall size photo in the foryer of a service in the building.  The third and current sanctuary of Highland Park Baptist seats 3,700 people.  Asbury Chapel, located across the street, is also used by Highland Park Baptist.

Dr. Lee Roberson began his ministry at the  Highland Park Baptist Church in 1942 and served for 40 years.  In 1946, he led the church to establish Tennessee Temple University . The school is a four-year college, Bible school and seminary.   His tenure was marked by phenomenal growth at the church with over 60,000 joining the church by profession of faith.  He has overseen the training of thousands of pastors, evangelists, and missionairies; and has preached around the world in revival meetings and conferences.
