What We Believe

"What comes into our minds when we think about God is the most important thing about us." - A.W. Tozer

Core Beliefs

The following are the core beliefs of Harvest Fellowship based on the foundational truths taught in the Bible. All of our teaching and ministry is rooted in and flows out of these biblical doctrines.


We Believe that there is only one God. He is the Author of all creation.  He spoke the worlds into existence, and everything that is either directly or indirectly exists because of Him. We Believe that God exists in three distinct persons; God the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.


We Believe that the Bible is completely true, accurate, and the fully inspired word of God.  It is the only true source for Doctrine, and any teaching that contradicts the Bible is not of God.


Humans, both male and female, were created in God's image for His glory. The first humans, Adam and Eve, were created without sin and appointed as caretakers of the rest of God's creations.

The Fall

We Believe that because of the transgression and fall of Adam, sin and death were ushered into this world, and that all men are now born into sin and are in need of salvation.


        We Believe that Jesus Christ is God’s only begotten son.
        That He was supernaturally conceived by the Holy Spirit.
        That he was born of a Virgin.
        That though He was tempted as all men, He lived a sinless life.
        (I Pet. 2:21,22)
        That He paid for our healing by the stripes he bore on His back. That He ransomed our souls by his death and atonement on the cross.
        That He was raised from the dead.
        That He ascended to the father (Eph. 4:10) where
        He now intercedes for those who believe on Him (I John 2:1).
        And He is preparing a place for those who believe on Him
        (John 14:2).
        That He will return again to claim His bride, the Church
       (John 14:3).


We Believe that regeneration through the atonement of Jesus Christ is the only way to inherit eternal life
(Rom. 3:25 and/ or Heb. 2:17).

Our Purpose

We Believe that Jesus gave clear instructions as to our purpose here on earth as his followers...based on scriptures found in Matthew 28 and Mark 16, this purpose has been dubbed “The Great Commission” …very simply put, to reach the world with the saving message of Jesus Christ, making disciples.  Every function of Harvest Fellowship should have this end in mind.

Holy Spirit

We Believe in the ministry of the Holy Spirit (Titus 3:5).
That He dwells within all who have accepted Jesus as savior, and is placed there as an earnest (or deposit) from God (I Cor. 6:19).
       That He was sent by God upon Christ’s ascension, to dwell among    
       us to convict the world of sin, and of righteousness, and of  
That Jesus offers a Baptism in the Holy Spirit that is a separate work
       from Salvation (Matt. 3 :11).
        This Baptism is not necessary for Salvation.
        This Baptism gives power to be witnesses (Acts 1:8).
        That the Gifts of the Spirit are still available to believers today,  
        including; Words of Wisdom and Knowledge, Faith, Healing,  
        Working of Miracles, Prophecy, Discernment, Tongues, and
        Interpretation of Tongues.  (I Cor 12: 7-11).
        These Gifts are given by the Holy Spirit as He wills (I Cor. 12:11).

Water Baptism

We practice Water Baptism by immersion and believe that Water Baptism is a direct command of the Lord, and that it is for believers only.  As one is baptized, not only are they being obedient, but they are acknowledging their identification with Christ, His death, burial, and resurrection (Rom. 6:3-7).


We practice open Communion, or the Lord’s Supper, meaning that all believers should feel free to partake.  We partake in this ordinance as symbolic remembrance of Christ’s suffering and death for our Salvation (I Cor. 11:23-26).
