What We Believe

Core Beliefs

If you want to go fast, go alone. If you want to go far, go together.

The following are the core beliefs of Higher Ground Church based on the foundational truths taught in the bible. All of our teaching and ministry is rooted in and flows out of these biblical truths.

Jesus is Lord.

We believe in the deity of the Lord Jesus Christ, in His virgin birth, in His sinless life, in His miracles, in His vicarious and atoning death through His shed blood on the cross, in His bodily resurrection, in His ascension to the right hand of the Father, and in His personal return in power and glory. Matthew 1:23; John 1:1-4 and 1:29; Acts 1:11 and 2:22-24; Romans 8:34; 1 Corinthians 15:3-4; 2 Corinthians 5:21; Philippians 2:5-11; Hebrews 1:1-4 and 4:15.

Jesus is the way, the truth, and the life. 

We believe that all people everywhere are in need of Hope and Restoration that can only be recieved through Jesus Christ, He is the only way of salvation, renewing your mind to the things of Christ is the greatest step towards living the amazing life God has called us to.  Furthermore we believe that when opening up your heart and believing in Christ as Lord and Savior God will reward the righteous with eternal life in heaven. Luke 24:46-47; John 14:6; Acts 4:12; Romans 3:23; 2 Corinthians 5:10-11; Ephesians 1:7 and 2:8-9; Titus 3:4-7.

We believe in the gifts of the Spirit. 

We believe in the present ministry of the Holy Spirit, whose indwelling enables the Christian to live a godly life and minister supernaturally. The baptism of the Holy Spirit is poured out on believers that they might have power to be His witnesses. John 3:5-8; Acts 1:8 and 4:31; Romans 8:9; 1 Corinthians 2:14; Galatians 5:16-18; Ephesians 6:12; Colossians 2:6-10; Acts 1:4-8; Acts 2:4.
