About Us

The Higher Ground Always Abounding Assemblies, Inc., 870 St. Clair Avenue, Columbus, Ohio, was founded and organized by its present pastor Dr. Sherman S. Watkins in March, 1970. It started as a little store front at 517 St. Clair Avenue with only eleven (11) members and a seating capacity of approximately 60 - 70 people.

On May 18, 1988, with instructions from the Lord to enlarge His dwelling, lengthen the cord and strengthen the stakes, Dr. Watkins took the necessary steps to launch out into the deep by organizing an independent organization under the charter of the Higher Ground Always Abounding Assemblies, Inc.

"Our objective at Higher Ground is to take ordinary people, with ordinary backgrounds and introduce them to an extraordinary Savior. Who will forever change their lives for the better."
