I'M A NEW BELIEVER
God, the creator of the universe, has a plan for you and your life. He loves you and he wants the very best for you, because he made you. He has a purpose for your life, and he knows that you cannot do it on your own. That's why He sent JESUS!
You don't have to be good enough, you don't have to clean you act up, and you don't have to follow the spiritual checklist. If you know that you cannot do it alone, and you have made the decision to run to Jesus, we want to walk with you!
Let us know that you have made the decision to follow Jesus so we can get you connected!
At Harvest, we believe that Christian baptism is the next step after declaring Jesus as Lord of your life and that it is a public declaration of and identification with Christ in His death, burial, and resurrection signified by immersion in water. It is commanded of all believers and is for believers only (Matthew 28:19-20; Acts 2:38, 41; Acts 18:18).
Scripture shows that a person was baptized after personally receiving forgiveness of sin through accepting Jesus Christ. The waters of baptism are a symbol of our death, burial, and resurrection to newness of life that happens when we become a new creation in Christ (Colossians 2:12; 2 Corinthians 5:17; Romans 6:1-4).
Step 1 Connect
Let us get to know you—meet our pastors for refreshments in a casual environment. Step 1 happens after services on the first weekend every month.It's a great opportunity to get to know the pastor, learn more about Harvest, and find out how to take your next step. And no matter what weekend it is, you can always visit with our pastor who would love to answer your questions and help you get connected to the life of our church.
Step 2 Consider
Step 2 is a great way to learn about or grow in how to follow Jesus and the mission He has given us. This class happens on the third weekend of every month. Led by our pastor, you'll find out what it means to worship, walk with, and work for Christ—and how to put those into practice in your life. At Step 2 you'll also learn about how to become a committed part of our Harvest family and how to continue growing in your relationship with God and with others in our church. And remember, on any weekend you can always talk to our pastor who will help you with questions and getting connected.
Step 3 Commit
In Step 3, we'll walk together as a family—worshiping, walking with, and working for Christ. This step is about growing spiritually and relationally in a life group, by serving, and making Harvest your church home through membership.
Life Groups are one way that we “do life together” at Harvest. It’s tough to have deep relationships by merely attending a big event like a church service. That’s where life groups come in. Real relationships are built out of shared experiences: meals together, conversations, adventures, serving others together, being there for each other when a need arises, and creating memories together. As we follow Christ TOGETHER ‘iron sharpens iron’ friendships emerge and true discipleship takes place. It is more than just a Sunday thing. It is a way of life.
It is our goal to help you find your purpose. We want you to find that place where you can do what God has created you to do. The truth is that sometimes we don't know where that is yet. Here at Harvest we invite you to join a team for a set amount of time and see if it fits. If not, lets try something else. Find a place where you can leave the fingerprints of Jesus in our church and in our community!
Take that first step of working for Jesus today, join a team!
