Our Values

Formation | Community | Unity and Diversity | Congregation | Shared Leadership | Baptism & Communion


Our mission is to glorify God by making disciples of Jesus Christ through the power of the Holy Spirit. Our vision is to be an authentic community of Christ-followers, committed to biblical worship and teaching, that reaches all people, restores them to wholeness, equips them for service, and sends them to reach others.


We desire to provide a healthy experience of “family” for all kinds of people, including those who have suffered pain and loss in their nuclear and extended family relationships. We seek to rejoice with one another as well as bear one another’s burdens in all areas of life. We value relationships across generations, and structure our activities to encourage them.

Unity in Diversity

We come from a wide range of backgrounds and welcome Christian diversity. We desire to emphasize what is most central and important to the historic Christian faith, not allowing secondary issues to distract or cause division. We also seek Christian unity within our community as we serve alongside other local churches and ministries.


As a congregation, we value the work that the Spirit is doing among us and the things that He is speaking through us to one another. We make decisions, recognize God's call, and serve our community together. We value the gifting and callings of each member as integral to our sanctification and the carrying out of God's work in the world.

Shared Leadership

A team of individuals share the Sunday morning teaching responsibilities. We believe this approach is consistent with Scripture, and that it benefits our congregation with a rich variety of teaching styles, all of which rest firmly on a commitment to the Bible as God’s Word.

Baptism & Communion

Baptism and communion are practices given directly by Jesus to his disciples. Baptism occurs once as a rite of initiation. Communion occurs regularly as a rite of remembrance. Both are central to the Christian life. Despite historical conflict among followers of Jesus about baptism and communion, Harvest views these practices as signs of unity.
