We strategically plan events and organize creative outreach that allow us to repeatedly connect with our neighbors, folks in the workplace, and people in the community. We desire to compassionately engage people, praying ultimately for open doors to build ongoing, life-on-life relationships with the lost.
The church needs to remember that it isn’t a building or that “church” only happens during the hour and a half of Sunday morning service gatherings. These Small-group Communities will be the church scattered throughout the week who are on mission together, caring for each other, pastoring and discipling each other, and living life with one another.
The main emphasis
of our corporate gatherings is ultimately for the adoration and celebration of
Christ Jesus, the Gospel, and for the building up and encouragement of the
saints in the Body of Christ. Harvest View desires to Worship our King who is WORTHY of our praise! As a church, we seek to teach of the whole counsel of the Word of God (Hebrew 4:12, 2
Timothy 3:16), regularly practice the sacraments of baptism and communion (1
Corinthians 11:23-29), and apply what the Apostle Paul says:
"Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly, teaching and admonishing one another in all wisdom, singing psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, with thankfulness in your hearts to God.” (Colossians 3:16).
