Made to Glorify

We were made to glorify God. The chief aim of the Christian life is to bring glory to the creator of all things. Through pure, unashamed adoration we lift high the name of Jesus, for to Him belongs the highest praise, the honor, and all glory. As we gaze on the beauty of Christ, we quickly see that there is none like Him in all the earth. It’s this beauty that compels us to look to Him, ascribe worth to Him, and tell others about Him. We glorify God by making disciples.

Made to Gather

We were made to gather as the body of Christ. Every week, we passionately cry out to God in worship, we open our Bibles to receive His truth, and we find all things in common with sinners saved by grace. Our Sunday gatherings keep growing! More and more families are making Harvest their home! The joy of our corporate gathering is contagious to a community in need of a Savior.

Made to Grow

We were made to become more and more like Jesus. Growing closer to Christ and growing closer to each other honors Him. This is what it means to be a disciple. We use our spiritual gifts to minister to each other—working the gospel deep into our hearts and homes. This takes place when the Scriptures are opened, when lives are also opened to one another, and simple prayer is happening. At Harvest we are intentional to keep this kind of disciple-making growing and maturing.

Made to Go

We were made to share the Good News of Jesus with boldness. Increasingly and with greater effectiveness we intend to penetrate the darkness of Michiana with the hope of Christ. This will require each of us being more missional in our neighborhoods, schools, and workplaces. It will mean starting new campuses and churches in Michiana. But to fulfill our mission of glorifying God through the fulfillment of the Great Commission, many of us will need to leave Harvest and be sent to other cities and countries. We are a sending church—locally and globally. We will maximize our facilities to equip this missionary-mindedness.

YOUR PART

SIMPLY PRAY WITH US

Much time has been, and will continue to be, devoted to seeking the Lord’s will for Harvest Bible Chapel Granger in prayer. We ask that you join us as we continually run to God’s throne, asking that:

  • we would not be one step ahead or behind God’s plan
  • we would be compelled by the responsibility of the Great Commission
  • we would have a supernatural joy, unity, and generosity
  • we would see the supernatural provision of God
  • we would give God all of the glory

DEEPEN YOUR COMMITMENT

In order for our church to be fully invested in increasing the Kingdom of Heaven, each of us must be personally committed to maturing in our faith. Over these next 3 years, would you commit to deepening your relationship with Christ and His body:

  • GLORIFY God by spending personal time in the Word each day
  • GATHER by consistently attending weekend worship each week
  • GROW by participating in a small group each week
  • GO by using your God-given spiritual gifts to minister to your church and your community
