At Harvest Christian Fellowship, we unite around the following beliefs:
We believe in the one true God, who is the Divine Creator and Sovereign Ruler of the Universe and has eternally existed in three equal persons, The Father, The Son, and The Holy Spirit. God is holy, unchangeable, all-present, all-knowing and all-powerful.
Deut. 6:4, Gen. 1:26, Matt. 28:19, Gen. 1:1, Psalm 33:6, 102:25, Isaiah 43:13, John 1:1, Mal. 3:6, Psalm 139:1-10, I Samuel 2:2
We believe Jesus is the Son of God and Son of Man. He was born of a virgin, is fully God and fully man, lived a sinless life and offered himself as the perfect sacrifice for the sins of mankind by dying on a cross. He was buried, physically arose from the grave, ascended into Heaven, and will return to earth to reign as King of Kings and Lord of Lords.
Isaiah 9:6, John 1:1-5, John 14:6, Hebrews 4:14-15, I Corinthians 15:3-4, Acts 1:9-11, Colossians 2:9, Revelation 19:16, 21:6
The Holy Spirit
We believe that God the Holy Spirit is present in the world to make men aware of their need for Jesus Christ, the Savior. He abides in all believers as our Comforter, Helper and Guide, giving us the power for living, the understanding of spiritual truth and sealing us with security. As Christians, we seek to be filled by the Spirit and live under His control daily.
II Corinthians 3:17, John 14:16,17,26, Genesis 1:1-2, I Corinthians 2:11-13, Ephesians 1:13, Galatians 5:25, Ephesians 5:18
We believe the Bible is God’s Word to us, without any mixture of error. It is the absolute and infallible authority in all matters of faith and conduct because God inspired every word of it.
II Timothy 3:16, II Peter 1:20-21, Psalm 119:105-106
We believe mankind is the supreme object of God’s creation, created in His image, but that through the sin of the first man, Adam, mankind fell so that all of us “miss the mark” and need salvation. Our sin separates us from God and causes many problems in life.
Genesis 1:27, Isaiah 53:6, Romans 3:23, Isaiah 59:1-2
We believe salvation is God’s free gift to us received through repentance toward God and faith by trusting in Jesus Christ as God’s offer of forgiveness. Eternal life begins the moment one receives Jesus Christ into his life by faith.
Romans 6:23, Ephesians 2:8,9, John 14:6, Titus 3:5, John 3:16
We believe every person who has been genuinely saved is eternally secure in Jesus Christ. Salvation is maintained by the grace and keeping power of God, not by the self-effort of the believer.
John 10:29, 2 Timothy 1:12, Hebrews 7:25
We believe people were created to exist forever in eternity, either eternally separated from God by sin, or eternally in union with Him by forgiveness and salvation through Christ. We believe Heaven and Hell are real places of eternal existence.
John 3:16, John 14:17, Romans 6:23, Revelation 20:14-15, Revelation 21:1-4, 1 Corinthians 2:7-9
