The goal of Harvest Ministries is to help the people in need irrespective of caste, creed and religion in agreement with Galatians 6:10 “As we have therefore opportunity, let us do well unto all [men], especially unto them who are of the household of faith”. And 2 Corinthians 8:14 “But by equality, [that] now at this time your abundance [may be a supply] for their want, that their abundance also may be [a supply] for your want: that there may be equality”. And also our Lord Jesus Christ commended us at the conclusion of the parable of the Good Samaritan “Go and do thou likewise” Luke 10:37. “But by equality, [that] now at this time your abundance [may be a supply] for their want, that their abundance also may be [a supply] for your want: that there may be equality”. The organization works in response to this command for the glory of His Name thus providing a living example of Christ for all the people. As the name of the organization implies, Harvest Ministries finds vital importance of the spiritual work and gives as much attention to the emotional and material aspects. The Harvest Ministries sincerely attempts to fulfill its calling and attempts to realize its objectives. Thus Harvest Ministries is committed to both spiritual and social aspects of the needy people, and works for the Glory of God.
STATEMENT OF FAITH WHAT WE BELIEVE
THE LORD JESUS CHRIST
We believe in the deity of our Lord Jesus Christ, in the virgin birth, in His sinless life, in His miracles, in His vicarious and atoning death through His shed blood, in His bodily resurrection, in His ascension to the right hand of the Father, and His personal return in power and glory.
We believe that there is one God, eternally existing in three persons: the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit.
We believe that for the salvation of the lost and sinful men, personal reception of the Lord Jesus Christ and regeneration by the Holy Spirit is absolutely essential.
We believe in the present ministry of the Holy Spirit by whose cleansing and in-dwelling the Christian is enabled to live a sanctified life.
BAPTISM IN THE HOLY SPIRIT
We believe the baptism in the Holy Spirit is a gift from God. This experience is accompanied by the evidence of speaking in other tongues as the Holy Spirit gives utterance to the believer.
We believe that water baptism by immersion is a commandment by the Lord to believers. It is our identification with Christ in His death, burial, and resurrection.
We believe in healing for the human body wrought by the power of God through the prayer of faith, and by the laying on of hands. It is provided for in the atonement of Christ, and is available for the Church today.
We believe the Bible to be the inspired, the only infallible, authoritative Word of God.
RESURRECTION OF THE SAVED AND LOST
We believe in the resurrection of both the saved and the lost- they that are saved, unto the resurrection of life; and they that are lost unto the resurrection of damnation.
We believe in the spiritual unity of believers in our Lord Jesus Christ. The people are the Church and the building is where the church meets.
GIFTS OF THE HOLY SPIRIT
We believe in the expression of the nine Gifts of the Spirit to the church according to (1. Corinthians 12). “Now concerning spiritual [gifts], brethren, I would not have you ignorant”.
PRAISE AND WORSHIP
We believe in the freedom of expression in praise and worship. This includes standing to sing, clapping of hands, lifting our hands, audible praise accompanied by music.
