URBAN HARVEST MINISTRIES
STATEMENT OF FAITH
We at Urban Harvest Ministries are bound together by these eternal truths:
We believe that the Bible is God’s anointed Word. It is divinely inspired, infallible, authoritative, and relevant to all people for all time. Its truth is implanted in us through the Holy Spirit and it is the unchangeable foundation upon which we stand.
We believe that Jesus Christ is the only begotten Son of the Father, present with God in creation, born to this earth of a virgin, sacrificed for our sins, and risen from the dead with hope, healing and forgiveness for all mankind.
We believe that man is created in God’s image but that man is fallen and in need of redemption. Sin abounds in our cities and communities because they are populated by fallen men and women. The hope for all mankind is found in Jesus Christ alone.
We believe that we can be saved only by God’s grace through faith in Jesus. There is no other name but Jesus through which we can be saved. When we confess our sins, He forgives our sins and promises us eternal life. This is the promise of God for all who believe. It is the privilege and duty of all Christians to make this message known to all mankind.
We believe that God calls us to a lifestyle that is an example of Jesus Christ in our fallen world. The Holy Spirit fills the Christian with His power and anointing, conforms us to the image of Christ, and empowers us with spiritual fruit and gifts for the accomplishing of the Great Commission to “Go and make disciples of all nations” (Matthew 29:19).
We believe that Jesus’ promised return for His pure bride – the church – will be accomplished at God’s appointed time. We, His children, are to be busy about His work, looking earnestly for His coming.
We recognize that God has called us to a higher calling than to build unto ourselves. Our passion and purpose is to make the name of Jesus Christ known and to bring all glory and honor to our Lord on earth and in heaven above.
