Core Values

And Jesus said, “Neither do I condemn you; go, and from now on sin no more.”

We want to be the best church we can be. Aiming to bless the Lord at all times and to be a helping hand and guiding light to those around us.

9

Church is a Spiritual Experience

We do not go to church to punch our "Went to Church Card." We seek a genuine spiritual experience as we worship God.

9

Biblical Preaching & Teaching

The Bible is God’s Word. And God’s Word changes lives.

9

Coorperate Prayer

God smiles, the Devil’s afraid, and Our faith is strengthened when we pray together. Jesus said, “My house will be called a house of prayer.”

9

Passionate Worship

Our voices are free to praise, Our hands are free to raise, and our hearts are free to be captivated by an Awesome God.

9

Freely Giving

We believe it is more blessed to give than to receive. We give to the church because we believe it is the hope of the world. We help others because we care.

9

Laughter

Living for Jesus is fun. We take serving Jesus seriously, but we don’t take ourselves too seriously. “A joyful heart is good medicine” -Proverbs 17:22

9

People are Important

People are our #1 priority. From the youngest to the oldest, everyone is important to God.

9

Families

Keeping a family healthy can sometimes be a daunting task. Therefore we are champions for families, helping anyway we can.

9

Authenticity

We do not put on our ‘church mask’ and pretend to be people we are not. We are Real People, exercising Real Faith, serving a Real God. Perfect people not allowed.

9

Hand Up Not Beat Down

We are not judgemental gossips. We are ambassadors for Jesus offering people a hand up out of their mess, not a beat down because they are in a mess.

9

Excellence

We will do everything with an attitude of excellence as an act of worship to God, as an act of service to others, and because it is what mature Christians do.

What we believe

Simply put, we believe in Jesus and we believe the Bible.

We believe that the Bible is the Word of God and it is Truth.

We are part of the Church of God denomination. A more detailed look at our beliefs can be found on the Church of God website.

A Spirit Filled, Loving Church where everyone is treated like family

A Vision to help families survive and thrive in today's difficult landscape

Our Team

We can acheive far more working together than we can on our own. At Harvest we take a team approach to ministry. The Bible says God has created all of us with our own gifts and talents so that we compliment each other working together to do the kingdom work of Christ.
