Themes and Messages

Douglas Decicco began Higher Ground Church with a passion for helping others develop an authentic connection with God and with each other. Those seeking a greater purpose for their lives, a way to integrate their educational life and their faith, a way to express themselves creatively, or just meet like-minded people will find Higher Ground with us.

Higher Ground Church is a voluntary member of the Assemblies of God Churches, the defining beliefs of which include the key role of the Bible in clarifying God's truth and intention and the unending possibilities of the miraculous in everyday life. We serve the area of North Broward County, including Lighthouse Point, Hillsboro Beach, Parkland, Deerfield Beach, Pompano Beach, Sunrise, Tamarac, Margate, North Lauderdale, Lauderhill, Lauderdale-by-the-Sea, Coral Springs, Coconut Creek, Margate. We are also service the Palm Beach County city of Boca Raton.

Here are just a few of the Sunday service themes. Don't let the interesting titles fool you; they are all biblically based and life-giving.

What is a Christian Service?

At Higher Ground Church, we listen for what God might be saying, not assuming we know all the time what it is we are to do. Although God is steady and true, His desire for us continuously unfolds, and we would be wise to listen for His voice.

Douglas is interested in the growth and maturity of those who attend and participate in Higher Ground Church services and activities and is motivated by a love for people. His leadership provides for those who are not interested in ritual or the pious trappings of typical religious organizations. It is a vital relationship with God that can make a woman or man soar over the mountain tops.

Here are some of the things that make Higher Ground Church fun, relevant, and positive experience.

A Typical Order of Things

Although each Sunday Service is different, there is a typical order that we follow most of the time. Of course, if the Holy Spirit has a different idea, it is wise to listen.
