Beach Praise Unplugged

We meet every Sunday at 4 pm

We're under or very near the first tiki hut just south (to the right) of the Deerfield Beach Pier. It's all contemporary praise. There's a short Bible study after the music. Bring a friend. Additional guitar players are welcomed. Don't forget 8 quarters for the parking meter.

Higher Ground Perspectives

These are some of Higher Ground's defining beliefs and practices.

Higher Ground Activities

Check out our church activities. We no longer have a Sunday service, or any traditional service for that matter. The reasoning is simple.

Higher Ground Music

We recognize the value of many musical styles. Our emphasis is on contemporary Christian music including alternative rock, R&B, dance, rhythmic pop, progressive folk rock, soul, hip hop, nu metal, hard rock, ska, reggae, retro, pop Gospel, and progressive Gospel.

Higher Ground Approach to Attire

Our members come in casual clothing or dress more formally as they see fit. We do ask that attendees avoid provocative cuts because they have no purpose in a community seeking truth and personal growth.

Higher Ground's View of Church

We believe that a biblical church body is a group of people who

The Location of Higher Ground

We have services and outreach events in multiple facilities throughout N.E. Broward County, Florida, including Lighthouse Point, Pompano Beach, and Deerfield Beach, and serve the people who live in these areas. We also provide information and resources for those seeking God throughout the world.

The central location for all public information about Higher Ground and its events and structure is this web site. Our main offices are in Pompano Beach, Florida. See our Contact Us page for our office mailing address.

Higher Ground Finances and Operations

Higher Ground Church is a 501(c)3 tax-exempt organization, so contributions are tax deductable. So that the impact of your contributions are maximized, we are also registered as a State of Florida not-for-profit corporation, and we keep our church's operational costs low, making use of contemporary communication techniques and technology, including web forms, postings, forums, email notices, and social networks. We save money by using existing public and private facilities in a way that is guaranteed by the free exercise clause of the Constitution of the United States. We are not overly concerned with facility ownership, finding unbalanced emphasis on such things as counterproductive to the cause of Christ. We consider careers and salaries important only to the extent that it permits us to do God's work within the local community and worldwide.


Higher Ground voluntarily adheres to the constitutions and bylaws of the General Council of the Assemblies of God and the Peninsular Florida District.

Higher Ground enjoys a cooperative relationship with Whirlwind Magazine and other affiliate Christian organizations.
