worship, walk, work

 

It's a Process

Everyone who authentically follows Christ goes through a continual process—sanctification—which simply means we’re becoming more and more like Jesus. Around Harvest you’ll hear that described as worshiping, walking, and working for Christ. When we’re intentional about honoring God in these ways, we can’t help but become “mature in Christ” (Colossians 1:28)—growing deeper in our relationship with Him and our relationships with others.

It's a commitment

Disciple-making is worked out together in our ministry to one another. It’s not about one or a small number of pastors bearing the full responsibility to care for our church (Ephesians 4:11-12). Rather it’s about all who follow Christ using our God-given spiritual gifts to minister to each other, in the context of our Christ-centered church.

Worship

Worship is the fuel for our discipleship

God desires to be worshiped in spirit and in truth (John 4:24) and promises to inhabit the praises of His people (Psalm 22:3). At Harvest we approach every weekend with the expectation that we will experience the manifest presence of God through passionate and sincere worship and the power of His word. When we do this, God shows up and lives are changed.

Walk

Community is the context for our discipleship

True growth in Jesus Christ can only be experienced by participating in gospel-centered community (Ephesians 4:15-16). At Harvest, this community is found in small groups where we gather together throughout the week to apply God's word, lift one another up in prayer, hold each other accountable, and care for each other's needs. Small groups are even an integral part of our kids and student ministries. We offer many kinds of small groups in our church, and new groups are continually forming.

Work

Service is the overflow of our discipleship

Jesus said, "I came not to be served but to serve" (Mark 10:45). As members of the body of Christ, our aim is to model His heart in service toward others by participating in the work God is doing in the local church. Harvest would not be what it is without the hundreds of volunteers who serve our people each week. We believe it is a privilege to work for Christ and we encourage everyone who calls Harvest their home to exercise their faith in a tangible way by serving this community.
