Statement of Beliefs

These core beliefs make up the foundation upon which our Bible Institute is based.  At Harvest Bible Institute we believe the following:

The One True God: We believe God is a triune being, Father, Son, and Holy Ghost. (Deuteronomy 6:4, Mark 12:29)

The Scriptures: We believe the scriptures are the inspired, infallible, revealed will of God.(II Timothy 3:15-17, Hebrews 4:12)

The Salvation of Man: We believe that in order to receive the gift of salvation one must confess with your mouth while believing by grace through faith in the shed blood of Jesus Christ, and believe in your heart that God raised Jesus from the dead. (Romans 3:2; 10:9, Ephesians 2:8)

Water Baptism: We believe water baptism is an ordinance of the church symbolizing to the world that one has died with Jesus and has been raised with Him to walk in newness of life. (Matthew 28:19, Acts 10:47, 48)

The In filling of the Holy Ghost: We believe in the infilling of the Holy Ghost with the evidence of speaking in tongues. (Acts 2:1-4)

Divine Healing: We believe that as believers, we can receive divine healing through faith and that healing is included in the atonement. (Mark 16:18, Isaiah 53:45)

Operations of the Gifts of the Spirit: We believe in the operation of the Gifts of the Spirit. (I Corinthians 12:4-10, Romans 12:5-8, Ephesians 4:11)

The Lord’s Supper: We believe that communion is an ordinance of the Church symbolizing the broken body and shed blood of Jesus Christ as the new covenant between God and man. (I Corinthians 11:24, 25, 28)

The Church: We believe that the Body of Christ is the home of God through the Sprit. Each believer born of God’s Spirit is an integral part of the general assembly and Church of the First Born which is written in Heaven. (Ephesians 1:22; 2:19-22)

The Tithe: We believe in tithing (10% of our gross income) as support for the local Church. (Proverbs 3:9, Malachi 3:10, Matthew 22:21)

Sharing Christ With Others: We believe in sharing Jesus Christ with others through local evangelism, world evangelism and missionary work in accordance with the Great Commission, with signs following. (Matthew 28: 19,20)

The Lake of Fire: We believe hell is a real place and we believe in the Lake of Fire. Revelations 19:20; 20:10-15

The Blessed Hope: We believe in and await our blessed hope, the appearing of the great God and Savior Jesus Christ. (Titus 2:13)
