What's an ordinance?

Baptism and the Lord's Supper are “ordinances” which means God ordered them to be done. Ordinances symbolize a believer's union with Christ.

The Lord's Supper

At Harvest, we celebrate the Lord's Supper quarterly. 
 
The Lord's Supper, also called communion, demonstrates the doctrine of substitution -- Christ died for us -- and reminds us of the means by which God's salvation was secured on our behalf. The unleavened bread is a symbol of the perfection of the Person of our Lord Jesus Christ in His body, soul and spirit. The wine symbolizes the blood of an innocent sacrifice, shed for the remission of the sins of the guilty.
 
Schedule for 2017
July 30th and October 29th
 
We observe 
close communion
, which means we welcome all like-minded believers to join us in this ordinance.

Baptisms

At Harvest, Baptisms are also celebrated quarterly. 
 
Baptism commemorates our identification with Christ -- a visual reminder of the death, burial and resurrection of Jesus; the death of the old nature through the reception of God's saving grace through Jesus Christ; and the promise of our future hope when our mortal bodies will be raised for eternity.
 
Schedule for 2017
July 16th during 9:30 & 11 a.m. services.
October 8th during 9:30 & 11 a.m. services.
 
Baptism is NOT salvation. Baptism pictures our salvation, but does not save us.  We are saved by God’s grace, not by anything we do to earn it.  (John 3:16, Eph 2:8-9)
