Welcome

Harvest Baptist Church of Blue Springs has been part of our community for more than 25 years!
 
Our motto is “Ministry runs on the rails of relationships.” Our primary goal is to help the lost develop a personal relationship with Jesus Christ. We then strive to provide a biblical foundation for a lifestyle of faith through one-on-one discipleship. In Discipleship, we teach the importance of being established in God’s Word, the local church, worship and ministry.
 
Whether you are new to church or have been attending for years, there’s plenty of room to grow with us at Harvest.

Why Our Church?

OUR PRINCIPLE/MOTTO

Ministry runs on the rails of relationships

OUR VISION

Training Pastors  ->  Planting Churches  ->  Sending Missionaries
 

OUR PURPOSE

Our purpose is the Eternal Purpose of God: To glorify himself, by Jesus Christ, through his body the church, as we preach the gospel to the world (Ephesians 3:10-11, 21)
 

THEME VERSE

Then the heathen that are left round about you shall know that I the Lord build the ruined places, and plant that that was desolate: I the Lord have spoken it, and I will do it. Thus saith the Lord God; I will yet for this be enquired of by the house of Israel, to do it for them; I will increase them with men like a flock.
Ezekiel 36:36-37
 

DETERMINED TO DISCIPLE

Each week, we provide spiritual nourishment corporately through Pastor Alan’s Sunday morning inspirational sermon series, Sunday evening devotional series and Wednesday evening doctrinal exploration.
 
On a personal level, we encourage our members to seek spiritual development. First, through our Discipleship lessons in a one-on-one setting. Then, we provide additional opportunities for personal spiritual development through Discipleship 2, a small group study, and classes in our Living Faith Bible Institute (LFBI).

 

OUR MISSION

The Great Commission, Matthew 28:18-20
Reaching the lost, discipling the saved and equipping the saints to continue the work God has started.
Reaching –>  Discipling –>Equipping
 

HBC STRATEGY

Ministry, training and reproduction
– We have a church in which every member can be a minister
– We have a church in which biblical leadership is trained
– We have a church with a passion for churches and pastors in the community, the urban core, across the country and cross-culturally
 

HBC PLAN

To use God’s word to do the work and seek revival in faith, family, finances and fruit
 

GOALS

1. To be go-ing
2. For all the saints to see themselves as one body
3. To focus on reproduction through discipleship
 

HBC CORE VALUES

Harvest Baptist Church (HBC) values
– Glorifying God with our live and service
– Prayer as an expression of our desperate dependence on God’s grace
– Giving as proof of our prioritizing God in practice
– Living in obedience to the authority of Scripture as found in the King James Version (KJV) Bible
