Home - About - Who We Are
Our foundation is Jesus Christ. 1 Corinthians 3:11 says “For no one can lay a foundation other than that which is laid, which is Jesus Christ” Our church stands on the reality of who He is and what He has done. Anything built on less will ultimately be torn down. Building on this foundation guarantees success - whether it is in our church or our individual lives - this foundation stands for eternity.
Our church is founded on Jesus Christ and supported by four pillars. These pillars are not specific to Harvest Bible Chapel as they are derived from Biblical truths, but they help us understand and clarify what we are committed to as well as explain what we choose to emphasize throughout our church. These pillars will define our church at every level from children’s ministry to small groups.
Lifting high the name of Jesus through worship
John 4:24 - "God is spirit, and those who worship Him must worship in spirit and in truth."
We seek to worship Jesus for who he is and what he has done in our lives. Our worship team will lead us in songs each week to help us engage our minds and hearts and give him the praise he deserves. Our hope is that all who join us will experience God's presence and develop a hunger for God.
Proclaiming the authority of God's Word without apology
2 Timothy 4:2 - "Preach the Word; be ready in season and out of season; reprove, rebuke and exhort, with complete patience and teaching."
Each week, we will devote time to opening up the Bible to a specific passage to explain the truth it contains and apply the principles to our lives. We believe this Book and the God it reveals can make a significant impact in our daily lives.
Believing firmly in the power of prayer
Ephesians 6:18 - "Praying at all times in the Spirit, with all prayer and supplication. To that end keep alert with all perseverance, making supplication for all the saints"
We started our church with prayer and will continue to pray as we've seen God free us from sin, heal our hurts, exceed our expectations and raise up a group of faithful leaders who desire to love, support and pray for you.
Sharing the good news of Jesus with boldness
Ephesians 6:19-20 - "and also for me, that words may be given to me in opening my mouth boldly to proclaim the mystery of the gospel, for which I am an ambassador in chains, that I may declare it boldly, as I ought to speak."
When you've embraced the truth of who Jesus
is, you develop a desire to share this truth with others. We encourage you to go tell others about the change God has made in your life, and we provide many opportunities for you to reach out to the community and the world.
The mission of our church is to glorify God by making disciples—to fulfill the Great Commission in the spirit of the Great Commandment (Matthew 28:19-20; Matthew 22:37).
Our obedience to this mission is the foundation of every Harvest ministry. From worship services to Children's Ministry to Student and Adult Ministries, our chief aim is to make disciples of Christ who love Him and follow His ways in their Worship, their Walk, and their Work.
Our Discipleship Model
Mature disciples Worship
with Christ, and Work
for Christ. A person committed to a relationship with Christ focuses on personally walking with Him, worshiping Him, and working for Him. That person will experience significant growth in personal sanctification and therefore will experience a closer personal relationship with the Lord Jesus Christ and will become "mature in Christ."—Colossians 1:28
We are committed to multiplying the godly characteristics of leaders' lives into others.—2 Timothy 2:2
We strongly believe this multiplication of ministry is key to the healthy growth of the church.
We believe the disciples of Jesus Christ should minister to one another in the local church, rather than one or a small number of professional pastors bearing total responsibility to care for the entire congregation. God has given spiritual gifts to all of His people to provide mutual ministry in the context of the healthy and strong local church.—Ephesians 4:11-12
