Vision isn't about reality, or what is. It's about our dreams and aspirations...what could be.
... Community Harvest Church
We envision a place where the lonely, the hurting, the bound, and the oppressed can find love, healing, freedom, hope and salvation.
We envision sharing the Gospel of Jesus Christ with thousands of unsaved friends and people in our communities and around the world, many of whom will receive Christ as Lord and Savior.
We envision all of our members developing into fully devoted and fully equipped followers of Jesus Christ through our worship services, Bible classes, children’s ministries, etc.
We envision a larger facility that will accommodate our growth. This facility will provide ample room for our worship services, adult Bible fellowships, children’s ministries, and other meetings and programs that will encourage growth in Christ. While we do not adopt the philosophy that “bigger is better,” numerical growth is, however, a by-product of evangelism. Therefore, we desire to grow by converting lost souls to Christ.
This is our dream – our vision
At Community Harvest Church, our focus is Christ; our mission is souls.
We as a body of believers exist to:
* Exalt the Lord Jesus Christ
* Evangelize the world
* Equip the saints for ministry
We will accomplish this through biblical instruction, prayer, worship and fellowship.
