ABOUT US

OUR PURPOSE


We believe that we are created to love God, love people, and impact our world.

 

Unfortunately, all of us have experienced distance in our relationship with God and difficulties loving people—even the people closest to us. What's more, the impact we are making often falls short of the good one we desire.

 

At Harvest, we believe that Jesus provides us with the only workable solution to these problems. The Bible describes these problems as sin and demonstrates how Jesus uniquely provides the solution to the sin problem we all face.

WHAT WE BELIEVE

HARVEST IS A NON-DENOMINATIONAL, BIBLE-TEACHING CHURCH.

OUR BASIC BELIEFS ON THE BIBLE, GOD, JESUS, AND THE CHURCH ARE:

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

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 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
