THIS WE BELIEVE








Who we are

A WORD + SPIRIT CHURCH

Harborview Fellowship is a non-denominational, Word and Spirit, evangelical church. Life in God’s Kingdom is to be filled with joy, freedom, purpose, power, and living life to its fullest in relationship with God and others through Jesus Christ! 


This is accomplished by God’s truth and the Holy Spirit. Introducing people to a

personal relationship with Jesus Christ is where it all begins.


CALLED TO EQUIP

We equip people to experience God’s liberating power to recover His original design and

purposes for their lives in and through personal freedom and the filling of the Holy Spirit. 

We train people to be effective in extending the Jesus life, love, and power to others.



CALLED TO JESUS MINISTRY

We are committed to live like Jesus lived and to do what Jesus did in ministering

His hope, love, and power to people in our community, region, and beyond.


Affirmation of Faith


SCRIPTURE

We affirm the Scripture, both Old and New Testaments to be the verbally inspired Word of God in its entirety, without error in the

original writings as the complete revelation of His person and His will necessary to be understood by mankind.


GOD
We affirm that there is one God, infinitely perfect and eternally existent in the persons of the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.


GOD THE FATHER
We affirm God the Father, the first of the Trinity, orders and disposes all things according to His own purpose and grace. He has decreed for His glory all that comes to pass. He has graciously decreed the plan by which mankind might receive forgiveness of sin and be reconciled to Him.


JESUS CHRIST
We affirm that Jesus Christ is true God and true man. He is without sin as to nature, unable to sin in principle, and did not sin in fact. We further affirm in His vicarious and atoning death by crucifixion, in his bodily resurrection, in His ascension to the right hand of God the Father. He will personally return in power and glory, and is the final judge of all.


HOLY SPIRIT
We affirm the present ministry of the Holy Spirit who convicts the world of sin, regenerates with spiritual life those who believe in the gospel, indwells Christians, and seals their salvation the instant they receive the gift of eternal life by trusting Jesus Christ as their Lord and Savior. We affirm that the Holy Spirit sanctifies the Christian in holiness, and provides one or more spiritual gifts to all believers, manifesting them as He wills, and that all the gifts of the Holy Spirit are operative today. We affirm the filling of the Holy Spirit which endows the believer with power to live supernaturally and that it is God’s will to continuously live life filled with the Holy Spirit.


HUMANS
We affirm that God directly and immediately created the first man and woman in His image, free from sin. The first man subsequently fell into sin by a voluntary act of willful disobedience to the revealed will of God. As a result, every human being of all ages is a sinner by divine pronouncement, nature and deed, subject to the wrath of God.


SALVATION
We affirm that salvation is by grace alone, through faith alone, in the life, death, and resurrection of Jesus Christ and mankind is utterly unable to save him or herself from the power or penalty of sin.
