Our mission is to cultivate vessels of honor devoted to prayer, teaching, worship, service, and discipleship, who represent Christ in every sphere of influence that God has called them.
We exist to see multitudes of believers from multiple ethnicities and backgrounds unified for the kingdom, encountering God’s presence, experiencing community, and making a difference.
Encounter God’s Presence: Our desire is to see those who are far away from God come to know Him, and those who know Him to come into intimacy with Him.
Cultivate His Character: We desire to see disciples making other disciples, raised as an overflow of their fascination with Jesus and their experience in His community. This to us is the heart of our assignment.
Influencers in the World: We hope by doing the two above, we will raise a people of influence who are making a difference in their sphere of influence.
We believe that there is only one living and true God, who exists in three distinct persons — God the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. These three, the Trinity, are equal in essence and distinct in function.
- Deuteronomy 6:4
- Matthew 28:19
The first person of the Trinity orders and directs all things according to His purpose and pleasure. He has created humanity to bring Him glory and honor, through His grace. While He is transcendent, He is also actively involved in His creation — offering an eternal relationship with us through His Son, Jesus Christ.
- Matthew 6:9
- John 5:19-24
- Ephesians 1:3-6
- Ephesians 2:1-10
Jesus Christ is both the eternal Son of God and virgin-born Son of Man. Fully God, fully man, He surrendered nothing of His deity during His earthly life. His sinless, sacrificial offering on the cross satisfied the Father’s justice, offering atonement for all of humanity’s sins, for all time. We believe in His bodily resurrection, His physical ascension, and His visible return back to earth to establish His earthly kingdom.
- John 1:14-18
- 1 Corinthians 15
- Hebrews 1:3
- Colossians 2:9
- Revelations 20:11-15
The third person of the Trinity executes the will of God in this world through humanity, by leading, by guiding, by filling, by teaching, and by convicting. The Holy Spirit is not merely an impersonal force, but a person, displaying the qualities of personhood (intellect, emotions, and will). He equips believers upon conversion by giving the gifts to be used for the building up of the church, and by bearing fruit through their yielded lives.
- John 3:1-8
- John 16:5-16
- 1 Corinthians 12
- Ephesians 1:1
- Ephesians 2:10
- Galatians 5:16-25
We were created in the image of God, destined to enjoy an intimate relationship with God, fulfilling His will here on earth. But because of Adam and Eve’s willful sin in the garden, sin entered into the world, and has infected all of humanity. Therefore, because of our inherent sinful nature received from our father Adam, we are all separated from God, spiritually dead, and destined for physical death and an eternity removed from God.
- Genesis 1-3
- Romans 1: 18-32
- Romans 3
- Romans 5
- Ephesians 2:1-3
We believe that Jesus Christ died for our sins as the only sufficient sacrifice, offering the atonement of sins for all mankind through His death, burial, and resurrection. While salvation is available to all, it is only experienced by those who respond to His gracious gift by faith apart from works. For those who do respond, we are regenerated and baptized by the Holy Spirit, becoming children of God, given a new nature and placed into the universal body of Christ, making us eternally secure in Him. As a result of our new relationship with God through His Son Jesus, we are now called to a life of submission to the Holy Spirit, manifesting spiritual fruit, and walking in good works that God has prepared beforehand for us to do.
- John 1:12, 14:6
- John 3:16
- Titus 3:4-7
- Acts 4:12
- Romans 3:21-26
- Ephesians 1:7
- Ephesians 2:8-9
- Hebrews 10:10-12
- 1 John 5:11-13
- Galatians 3:26
We believe that every word in the original writings is inspired by God and is without error. The Word of God reveals God’s nature and will for all of humanity, and, because of this, it is to be the foundation of faith and practice. We affirm that while the Scriptures are accurate in all matters, they were never given to be an end in and of themselves, but rather a means to a relationship with God. Because of this, the authority and teaching of Scriptures will have a preeminent place in our church.
- II Timothy 3:16–17
- II Peter 1:20–21
- Hebrews 4:12
- John 17:17
For all who have placed their faith in God through His Son Jesus Christ, they are a part of the universal body of believers known as the church. This placement of the believer into the universal church requires an association of the believer with other followers of Christ in a local assembly. The purpose of the local church is to lead people to Christ and to bring them to maturity in Christ. The members of the local church are to live their lives in humble submission to other Spirit-led believers, and to the God-appointed leaders of the church. His Holy Hill Church is an autonomous local assembly that is led by Jesus Christ, who gives direction as the head of this body through a body of appointed elders.
We affirm that the doctrines of the Trinity, the deity of Christ, the bodily resurrection, the atoning work of Christ on the cross, and salvation by grace through faith make up the essential, distinctive nature of Christianity. In regards to these essential doctrines, there can be no conflicting opinions of those who call themselves true followers of Christ. However, we do acknowledge that there are peripheral or non-essential doctrines that are important, but not critical to the follower of Christ as it relates to our salvation. Some of these topics include the exact timing and nature of the rapture, the extent and use of certain spiritual gifts, and the relationship between election and free-will in salvation. While our church will be diligent to establish positions as it relates to these non-essentials, we will not allow these peripheral doctrines to cause division within the church. We will accept into our body those who have differing views on the non-essential doctrines, but will not allow those of a different opinion to fracture the church. While we celebrate diversity along all lines (racial and theological), we will ultimately pursue the unity of the church.
Mo & Nikki are excited to be a part of what the Lord is doing in Middle Tennessee. They have continued to serve relentlessly to curate a culture of intimacy with God in prayers, disciple-making, and releasing leaders. Their message is anchored on this verse “Him we preach, warning every man and teaching every man in all wisdom, that we may present every man perfect in Christ Jesus” -Colossians 1:28. They are disciple-makers at heart! Mo & Nikki are happily married and blessed with four children; Zion, Eden, Bethel, and Zoe.
The H3 Direction Team comes alongside our pastors to build in the same direction. They steward and carry the DNA of His Holy Hill, lead other leaders, make pivotal decisions in a community, and help shape what God has placed in our hearts.
The Teaching Team stewards as a community the ministry of the Word at His Holy Hill. The teachers come together to study and plan the different teaching series at His Holy Hill, by the leading of the Holy Spirit.
We are strengthened by this group of leaders who help shape the vision and trajectory of His Holy Hill, while providing oversight for doctrinal, ethical, and financial accountability.

IT'S A GOD THING
H3 Church is a response to God’s divine call and desire to birth something fresh. The ministry was birthed in the place of prayer. Almost a decade prior to the official launch of the ministry, the Lord spoke to Pastor Mo while spending some time in fellowship with the Lord to cultivate vessels. The mandate “To Cultivate Vessels” was directly from:
2 Timothy 2:20-21 (NKJV) “But in a great house, there are not only vessels of gold and silver, but also of wood and clay, some for honor and some for dishonor. Therefore if anyone cleanses himself from the latter, he will be a vessel for honor, sanctified and useful for the Master, prepared for every good work.”
The Lord led our leaders to plant in the city of Murfreesboro and from there the vessels cultivated would go to the ends of the earth and impact the world. Using the story of Peter’s encounter with Jesus from Luke 5:1-11, the Lord also instructed that the new work would have a tripartite expression:
1) The Supernatural: where people can have an authentic encounter with the Lord Jesus.
2) Discipleship: where people would cultivate the character of Christ.
3) Leadership: where vessels are released to make an impact in their world.
The “H3” stands for His Holy Hill. The name of the church was divinely extracted from:
Psalm 3:4 (NKJV) “I cried to the Lord with my voice, And He heard me from His holy hill.”
Psalm 48:1 (NKJV) “Great is the Lord, and greatly to be praised In the city of our God, In His holy Hill.”
Psalm 99:9 (NKJV) “Exalt the Lord our God, and worship at His holy hill; For the Lord our God is holy.”
The believer in Christ, is “His Holy Hill”:
1 Corinthians 6:19-20 (NKJV) “Or do you not know that your body is the temple of the Holy Spirit who is in you, whom you have from God, and you are not your own? For you were bought at a price; therefore glorify God in your body and in your spirit, which are God’s.”
Pastors Mo & Nikki had served in different capacities in the Church for almost two decades prior to planting H3 Church, having served as Youth Pastors, Prayer Coordinators, etc. It has always been their joy to serve the Local Church. They have lived in Tennessee since 2009, and are blessed with three beautiful children; Zion, Eden, Bethel, and Zoe.
While we celebrate our prophetic history, we prayerfully anticipate our glorious future as the story of this assignment continues to unfold.
