God has given each of us dreams in our hearts. We see them in our mind, and they inspire us every day to keep pressing forward toward the prize of the upward call of Christ Jesus. Higher Ground dreams many dreams, and we share them here and invite you to dream with us. We have a dream to be a place that reaches those not looking for religion, but for the real presence and power of God. Our vision is to create a place of God’s presence where unchurched and non-religious people would love to come. We have a dream to be an environment that hosts God’s Presence through worship and prayer. We have a dream to always be a vibrant community of believers that reaches all people…young people, middle-aged people, older people, families, singles, blacks, whites, Asians and Hispanics, ministering to both their spiritual and practical needs. We have a mandate from the Lord to “Prepare a place for His young people to minister His fire to their generation.” We have a dream to write and produce music and release the sounds of heaven that will go out and touch the body of Christ. We have a dream to fuel Revival in our region and beyond, and see prodigals come home and the lost be found; sicknesses healed, marriages restored, poverty broken and addicts set free. Each dream will come to pass, not by our might, nor our own power, but by the Spirit of the Lord. We have been forged in too hot of a fire to ever give up and not see what all the fight has been for. Yes, we thank God for those who have not believed in us; those who have rejected us, and for every trial. These have pushed us to dig deeper, pray harder and trust Him more, and find Him faithful. What we have been seeing only in the Spirit is soon to come to pass in the natural. We will see the fulfillment of our dreams and prayers, and the people will come from the north, the south, the east and the west. We won’t know how they got here. It won’t be because of a great marketing plan. The only explanation will be that God brought them. We will never, never, never, never give up on our dreams and promises God has given us. We encourage you to do the same. Dream, and dream big. Believe God, and believe big. FAITH pleases Him. If you share the dream we have, we invite you to come build the dream with us. We believe our dream; you can believe your dream, because God gave it to you, and His breakthrough is just around the corner.
We all though must fight the dream-destroyers. We all hear the voices that tell us it can’t be done and it will never happen! But we fight lies with the truth of God’s Word and His promises, and we declare here that… for every time we’ve been told that Higher Ground is in an area called “The graveyard of preachers…” For every voice that has said, “You don’t fit in around here; and people won’t receive your style of ministry or music; you’re too radical for this area…” For every time we’ve been told, “I already have a church…” We say, “Just watch…God is getting ready to bust a move at HG, and HE will get all the glory!” His dream is always bigger than us, and only He can bring it to pass. He tests us to prove us, to see if we will trust Him, even when everything seems like it can’t be done and we can’t go on. But never ever give up…all God’s promises are Yes and Amen! Come with us and be a part of the journey to fulfillment of God’s dreams and purpose for your life. We’d love to see you here.
