We trust that you will find this Web site to be useful as you learn about Harvest Church for the first time, or become involved with one of our ministries at a deeper level. Here are a few basic facts about Harvest Church:
1. Harvest Church is founded on the following six distinctives:
- Fervent Prayer
- Bold Preaching
- Passionate Worship
- Purposeful Disciple-Making
- Courageous Evangelism
- Strategic Church Planting
2. Harvest Church believes true disciples passionately and actively worship, walk with, and work for Christ.
- Worship, Walk with, and Work for Christ - The Process of Sanctification and Maturity
- Mature disciples worship Christ,walk 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.
3. Harvest Church is a church of Small Groups. Small Group involvement is essential for each person who attends Harvest.
- 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)
