Our Mission Brief
At Harvest Cry our Mission is “To Equip the Saints for the Work of Ministry”
In Ephesians Chapter 4, Paul admonishes all Equippers to help the Saints to Develop into Maturity. That maturity should naturally look like the character and nature of Jesus Christ. At Harvest Cry we try to enable and equip all believers into to maturity through the application and growth by the Holy Spirit

Growth . Spirit . Power .
True Christian maturity is derived by one’s ability to serve others by means of their spiritual gift. This maturity comes through Anointed Equippers who enable Christians to grow in their knowledge and experience in giving away their gift to others.

Our Beliefs & Values
This brief statement of faith does not cover the full extent of our beliefs. The Bible itself, as the inspired and authoritative 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 purposes of Harvest Cry’s faith, doctrine, practice, policy, and discipline, our President and Elders are Harvest Cry’s final interpretive authority on the Bible’s meaning and application.
We believe in only one God who has existed eternally in three persons: the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit. We believe in the deity of the Lord Jesus Christ, his virgin birth, his sinless life, his miracles, his death as an atonement for sin through the shedding of blood, his bodily resurrection, his ascension to heaven, and his personal return in power and glory. We believe in the bodily return of the Lord Jesus Christ and the resurrection of the dead for both salvation and final judgment.
We believe that human beings are sinful, guilty, and lost without Christ and that salvation from the consequences of sin comes only through the work of Jesus Christ on the cross where he bore our sins and died on our behalf.
We believe that sinners are made right before God only by God’s grace, through faith in Jesus Christ.
We believe in the ministry of the Holy Spirit whose presence enables believers to live by faith and grow in spiritual maturity, gives Spiritual Gifts for today, and enables believers to operate in power.
“Christians everywhere have undiscovered and unused spiritual gifts. The leader must help bring those gifts into the service of the kingdom, to develop them, to marshal their power. Spirituality alone does not make a leader; natural gifts and those given by God must be there too.“
– J Oswald Sanders
