Our mission is God’s mission. Jesus gave us His mission when He said in Luke 19:10 that He came “to seek and to save that which was lost.” This is our mission—to take the message of Jesus Christ to all of the world. Spreading the Gospel world-wide is not a part of what we do; it is what we do.
Our church is functioning as Jesus wants it to function when we are helping people begin a relationship with Jesus Christ. The most important decision a person can make is regarding eternity. It is our prayer that you will believe on Jesus Christ and receive Him as your personal Savior. After beginning a relationship with God, Harvest is a place for you to connect with other believers. We all want people who can “do life” with us. There is no greater place to build life-long friendships than in the church. All of us will need encouragement along our spiritual journey; and a church family can provide that encouragement.
After connecting with God through a personal relationship with Jesus Christ, you must anchor your life to God’s Word. A person must become grounded and rooted in their faith in order to be established in a world that is constantly changing. Whether it is in one of Pastor’s Bible messages, a lesson in Connection Groups, or a devotional around a camp fire, the teaching of the Word of God is essential to our growth. Our goal is to equip you to be able to read and study the Word for yourself—not depending on a Pastor or a teacher—so that God can speak to your heart and grow your faith.
As we become true followers of Jesus, we take His purpose and make it our purpose. Jesus came “to seek and to save that which was lost” (Luke 19:10). It is God’s plan for His church to reach out to a lost world with His message of hope and salvation—whether to a neighbor across the street or to a person on another continent. True followers of Jesus engage in serving those inside the walls of the church and to those outside the walls of the church.
