A church that proclaims and demonstrates His kingdom on this earth!
Higher Ground is a place where the people create an atmosphere for the power and presence of the Holy Spirit, knowing that a power encounter with God will transform every area of a person‘s life. We are praying that as lives are transformed, our community will be transformed by the power of God, from local government to the school system.
The church is a spiritual hub where the Kingdom is advanced. A place where we see lives being changed and people, young and old, are equipped to make an impact in their sphere of influence. A place from which ministries are launched for God‘s glory.
Higher Ground is a no walls church. We strive to make a difference in our community by taking the ministry outside the four walls by holding outreaches and having church in the park, street evangelism, holding prayer walks, and doing flyer distribution.
