Our Mission

To glorify God through the fulfillment of the Great Commission (Matthew 28:19-20) in the spirit of the Great Commandment (Matthew 22:37-39).

Our foundation is Christ

The Four Pillars

Core Values of Harvest Bible Chapel

  • Unapologetic Preaching

    Proclaiming the authority of God’s Word without apology. (2 Timothy 4:2)

  • Unashamed Adoration

    Lifting high the name of Jesus through worship. (John 4:24)

  • Unceasing Prayer

    Believing firmly in the power of prayer. (Ephesians 6:18)

  • Unafraid Witness

    Sharing the good news of Jesus with boldness. (Ephesians 6:19-20)

Life At Harvest

Our Discipleship Focus

  • Worship

    Following Jesus with hearts that know, follow and treasure God above all things. This heart of worship will grow as we pursue Him through personal spiritual disciplines (Bible study, prayer, fasting, etc.) and overflow in outward acts of worship.

  • Community

    Following Jesus together as we worship together weekly and commit to walking alongside each other in loving, intentional and intensive discipleship and deep authentic community.

  • Mission

    On mission with Jesus through shouldering weekly kingdom responsibilities in the church as well as being involved in the community through serving others and sharing the message of Jesus.

What to Expect

Our service begins with worship, led by a band. Most people stand during this time, however, there is complete freedom to be seated if you prefer. The words of all of the songs are projected onto a screen. Our hope is that you’ll hear songs you know or can relate to, even if you haven’t been to church before.

Like most churches we take an offering in our service. If you are a guest, please do not feel obligated to participate, as this is intended for those who consider Harvest their church home.

As our guest, we only ask that you take a few moments to fill out our Connection Card which is found at the end of each row. The Connection Card is where you can request information, ask for prayer, let us know your thoughts, or just indicate your presence with us. In any case, our church leaders pray for each of the prayer requests every week.

Harvest provides practical Bible messages that help you deal with real life issues. Pastor Kaj preaches from the English Standard Version, but please feel free to bring whatever version of the Bible you use.
