About Higher Praise

Mission

Our Mission is to be the “church” where God freely reigns; a place where acceptance, restoration, salvation, and commission out into the vineyards is of utmost importance. Higher Praise shall focus on doing the works of the ministry of which its people have been called; to further the Kingdom of God. We shall care for the sick and the destitute, offer assistance in the rebuilding of lives, but beyond all of that we shall teach and preach the Gospel of Jesus Christ … His message of SALVATION. We shall worship Him in this “holy” temple giving Him all glory, honor and praise until that awesome day of His return.

Doctrine

We believe:

  • In ONE GOD who is eternal in His existence, having manifest Himself as God the Father, Son, and Holy Ghost, and that He is Sovereign and Absolute in HIS AUTHORITY. (I John 5:7, Deut. 4:39)
  • In God the Father as the Author and Creator of the universe. (Gen. 1:1)
  • In the Bible in its entirety as being the Holy, Inspired, and Infallible written Word of God. (II Tim. 3:16)
  • In Jesus Christ as the Son of God, and the atoning work accomplished through His death, burial, and resurrection. We believe that Jesus Christ is the ONLY WAY to Heaven. (John 14:6)
  • In the Holy Spirit who is God indwelling, empowering, and regenerating the believer. (Romans 8:11)
  • That SALVATION IS A FREE GIFT as a direct result of the sacrificial death of Jesus Christ on the cross (Eph. 2:8-9)
  • In worshiping God in spirit and truth through praise and worship with our whole heart, in song, dance, and the lifting of our hands! (John 4:24, Psalms 149:3)
  • That Godly living and the pursuit of a holy life should be the goal of every believer. (I Peter 1:15)
  • That believers should be water baptized, to identify with the death, burial, and resurrection of Jesus Christ. (Mark 16:16)
  • That all Christians need to partake of the Lord’s Supper (Holy Communion), that we may proclaim His death until His return. (I Cor. 11:23-26)
  • In the Manifestation of the gifts given by the Holy Spirit through tongues, interpretation of tongues, prophecy, words of knowledge and wisdom, discerning of spirits, faith, working of miracles, and healing. (I Cor. 12:7-10)
