GET TO KNOW US

Harvest's mission is built on the mission given by Jesus to his followers in Matthew 28:18-20. At Harvest, we simply say that we are people helping people know and follow Jesus.

We invite you to invest in your friends, family, neighbors, and co-workers by sharing your story and inviting them to attend church with you.

Service Times:

Sundays @ 10 a.m. in person and online

ATTEND STARTING POINT

In the years ahead we envision our mission being fulfilled as we fuel a movement of passionate, outsider-seeking churches that are built with a multiplication DNA to reach Central Florida and beyond. We will accomplish this through a combination of multisite and church planting strategies:

  • Multi-congregational: as the church grows, we will pursue opportunities to extend Harvest to new communities around us.
  • Church planting: we will deliberately build up pastors and leaders who will launch new churches in new locations.

Knowing and following Jesus means that we are becoming more like him in character and action. We value the following practices, worded as questions, to help us become more and more like Jesus:

We want to help you know God better and grow to become who He’s created you to be.

  • Share Jesus: Who am I helping to know Jesus?
  • Engage with God: How did I spend time with God this week?
  • Serve People: How am I using my gifts to serve others?
  • Establish Community: Do I have a community that is encouraging to my faith?
  • Live Generously: Does my giving show love for God and people?

While churches share much in common in their belief in Jesus, churches also have unique cultures. The following leadership values will tell you something about our unique culture and calling:

  • We don't play it safe, we follow Jesus. We believe big, pray big, but start small. We choose to think outside of the box but we purposefully do less to accomplish more.
  • Jesus is our message. We are Jesus people, not religious people. Methods will come and go, yet our message will remain the same. Furthermore, our mission to connect Jesus to outsiders trumps preferences for insiders.
  • We don't lead to maintain, but to multiply. We believe the leader wins by growing fruit on other people's trees. We lead toward a movement that multiplies outward not to protect what we've built.
  • We choose to take the hill and to take it together. The church is a multi-generational, ethnically diverse, team on a mission to help others know and follow Jesus. We are extremely dedicated to this mission and we are highly dedicated to each other.

God wrote a book

The Bible is God's Word to all people, written by human authors under the supernatural guidance of the Holy Spirit. Because of its divine inspiration, the Bible is truth without any mixture of error and is completely relevant to our daily lives.

Deuteronomy 4:1-2; Psalms 119:11, 89, 105; Isaiah 40:8; Matthew 22:29; John 5:39; 16:13-15; 17:17; Romans 15:4; 2 Timothy 3:15-17; Hebrews 1:1-2; 4:12; 1 Peter 1:25; 2 Peter 3:16

The Trinity: God exists as 1 and yet 3

There is one living and true God, existing eternally in three persons: the Father, the Son-Jesus Christ, and the Holy Spirit. Although each member of the Trinity serves different functions, they carry out those functions in perfect harmony while being equal in power and authority.

Deuteronomy 6:4; Isaiah 61:1; Matthew 28:19; Mark 1:9-11; Luke 1:35; John 5:21-23; 14:10, 16; Romans 8:9-11; 1 Corinthians 8:6; 2 Corinthians 13:14; Hebrews 1:8-10; James 2:19

Who is Jesus?

Jesus Christ is completely human and at the same time completely God. He is the only way to bring people who are enemies of God back into a right relationship with God. He lived a perfect life demonstrating to mankind how to live, so that He could be a substitution for us in satisfying God's demands for perfection. He defeated death in His resurrection so that we could have and experience true life.

Isaiah 7:14; 53; Matthew 1:18-23; 3:17; 8:29; 14:33; 16:16; 28:5-6; Luke 22:70; 24:46-47; John 1:1, 14; 10:30; 11:25-27; 17:1-5; Acts 1:9; 2:22-24; 7:55-56; Romans 1:3-4; 3:23-26; 8:1-3; 10:4; 1 Corinthians 8:6; 2 Corinthians 5:19-21; Gal 4:4-5; Philippians 2:5-11; Colossians 1:15; 2:9; 1 Timothy 2:5-6; 3:16

Salvation

The blood of Jesus Christ, shed on the cross, provides the only way of salvation through the forgiveness of sin. Salvation only occurs when people place their faith in the death and resurrection of Jesus as the substitute and sufficient payment for their sin. Salvation is a gift of God’s grace and it cannot be earned through our own efforts.

Isaiah 1:18; 53:5-6; 55:7; Matthew 1:21; 27:22-28:6; Luke 1:68-69; 2:28-32; John 1:12; 3:16, 36; 5:24;Acts 2:21; 4:12; 16:30-31; Romans 1:16-18;3:23-25; 5:8-10; 6; 1 Corinthians 1:18; 2 Corinthians 5:17-20; Galatians 2:20; 3:13; Ephesians 2:8-10; Philippians 2:12-13; Hebrews 9:24-28; Revelation 3:20

The Church

The church is a local community of believers unified through their faith in Jesus Christ. It is committed to the teachings of Christ, to obeying all of His commands, and it seeks to bring the good news of Jesus to the world. The Church works together in love and unity, intent on the ultimate purpose of glorifying Christ.

Matthew 16:18-19; 18:15-20; Acts 2:41-47; 5:11-14; 13:1-3; 14:23; 16:5; 20:28; 1 Corinthians 7:17; 9:13-14; 12; Ephesians 1:22-23; 2:19-22; 3:10-12; 5:22-32; Colossians 1:18; 3:15; 1 Timothy 4:14; 1 Peter 5:1-4; Revelation 21:2-3
