Statement of Faith

  • God has given to parents the mandate of His Divine Word to teach, instruct, and train their children in the way they should go; and it is upon this foundation that we base our organization.
  • God exists eternally in three Persons as Father, Son and Holy Spirit; and these three are one God, and there is no other true God.
  • God is absolute and sole Creator of the universe, and creation was by divine act, not through the evolutionary process.
  • Jesus Christ is God the Son, and is both God and Man. He was born of a virgin, lived a perfect, sinless life, was crucified and died as penalty for our sins, raised bodily from the dead on the third day, appeared to His disciples and as many as 500 at one time, ascended to the Father’s right hand, and is personally, bodily, visibly coming again to earth.
  • The Holy Spirit is a person, is God and possesses all the divine attributes; He indwells all believers at the moment of their salvation, and fills them in response to confession of sin and being fully yielded to Him.
    Man is a sinner and totally depraved, void of any righteousness, without God; and the whole human race has fallen into the sin of Adam, bringing personally upon each one physical, spiritual and eternal death, unless one is saved.
  • Jesus Christ provides the only way to salvation through His substitute death and the shed blood on the cross, and salvation is entirely apart from good works, baptism, church membership, or any of man’s efforts, and is of pure grace.
  • We believe that God wonderfully creates each person as male or female. These two distinct, complementary genders together reflect the image and nature of God. Rejection of one’s biological sex is a rejection of the image of God within that person.
  • We believe that the term “marriage” has only one meaning: the uniting of one man and one woman in a single, exclusive union, as delineated in Scripture. We believe that God intends sexual intimacy to occur only between a man and woman who are married to each other. We believe that God has commanded that no sexual activity be engaged in outside of a marriage between a man and a woman.
  • We believe that every person must be afforded compassion, love, kindness, respect and dignity. Hateful and harassing behavior or attitude directed toward any individual are to be repudiated and are not in accord with Scripture nor the doctrines of Harvest Community School.
  • This Statement of Faith does not exhaust the extent of our beliefs. The Bible itself, as the inspired and infallible Word of God that speaks with final authority concerning truth, morality and the proper conduct of mankind, is the sole and final source of all that we believe. For the purposes of Harvest Community School’s faith, doctrine, practice, policy and discipline, the board of Family Harvest Ministries will be the final interpretive authority on the Bible’s meaning and application.
