What We Believe
From Harvest Time Ministries
About the Scriptures
We believe the Bible is the inspired, infallible Word of God, written by the Holy men of old as they were moved by the Holy Spirit. (II Peter 1:20 & 21)
About God, the Father
We believe in one God who is Holy in nature, attributes, and purposes; as well as omnipotent (infinite in power), omniscient (all knowing) and omnipresent (everywhere at once). (Job 42:2; Isaiah 40:28 & 45:5; Psalms 139:1-12)
About God, the Son
We believe in the virgin birth (Matthew 1:21) and that Jesus was both human and divine. He was God manifested (revealed) in the flesh (I Timothy 3:16). We believe in the death, burial, and resurrection of Jesus Christ (I Corinthians 15:1-11).
About God the Holy Spirit
We believe that Jesus Christ ascended on high and has sent the Holy Spirit, which was poured out at Jerusalem on the day of Pentecost over 1900 years ago, and is still in-filling those who diligently seek Him today (Acts 2:1-4).
About the Godhead
We believe that one God was revealed to us, Father in creation, Son in redemption and Holy Spirit in His comforting grace that never leaves those who trust Him. (Joel 2:28; John 1:14; I Corinthians 8:6; II Corinthians 5:19; Ephesians 4:6). We believe that in Jesus Christ dwelleth all the fullness of the Godhead bodily; for it pleased the Father that in Him should all the fullness dwell. (Colossians 1:19 & 2:9)
We believe in repentance, the baptism in water by immersion in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ for the remission of sins and the baptism (in-filling) of the Holy Spirit. This constitutes the complete new birth process (Acts 2:4, 38; Acts 19:5-6).
About the Church
We believe the Church, consisting of all believers in Jesus Christ is the Body of Christ. Our chief aim is to glorify our Savior Jesus Christ, who gave Himself for us, that He might redeem us from all iniquity and purify unto Himself a peculiar people, zealous of good works (Titus 2:14).
