THE CHURCH IS ON A RESCUE MISSION
The Harvest Life Church Reach Culture is the undergirding foundation that speaks to consistently and perpetually REACHING individuals through the ministry of Jesus Christ primarily through salvation and discipleship but through other means as well.
The Reach Culture is a living concept by which Harvest Life operates in our functional environment and through its membership to bring the quality of “spiritual reach” – ministering to everyone and their need with priority and care.
This begins with reaching people with:
(1) Salvation through Jesus Christ concerning the eternal heavenly destination of the soul and
(2) Discipleship – the guidance and training in righteousness and Christian principles.
We believe that every member of the Body of Christ, from young children to senior adults, can be REACH LEADERS. This concept of REACHING is also employed within the context of our preaching, teaching, training, services, music ministry, youth ministry, events, ceremonies, conferences, projects, correspondence and social media.
The Local Church serves as the central setting for the training, equipping, modelling and fellowship of the Reach Culture. It is at the church that people can not only come to Christ and be disciple but learn to do the same. Reaching through fellowship, music, small groups, ministry events and activities all enhance and encourage the culture.
You Get Saved
The first element of Reaching deals with giving your life to Jesus Christ. You must be “reached” with the saving grace of God through the hearing of the Gospel. It is being rescued from sin and its consequences by faith in Christ. If you have not given your life to Jesus, or would like to renew your commitment to Christ, say the prayer below.
Lord Jesus, I repent and turn from my sins and I ask You for forgiveness.
I invite You to come into my heart and life.
Wash me clean and fill me with Your Holy Spirit, and I will trust and follow You as my Lord and Savior.
Thank You Jesus, I am born again – I am forgiven, I am saved and I am on my way to heaven.
Jesus, give me passion for the lost, hunger for the things of God, and holy boldness to reach somebody else for You. In Jesus’ Name, Amen.
You Are Discipled
After salvation, it is important to have a continuous connection through teaching and nurture. Reaching through discipleship is the process when the Pastor, a teacher or a friend with the empowerment and guidance of the Holy Spirit, disciples you to become more like Christ.
You Win Souls
At any point in the reach process you can participate in winning souls for the Kingdom of God. As you share the Good News of Jesus and tell of the testimony of what the Lord has done for you – you will reach new souls for the Kingdom of God.
Full circle in the reach process is actually YOU helping to nurture and guide someone else in righteousness and Christian principles. As you make yourself available, discipleship is enabled and empowered by the Holy Spirit who transforms individuals into the image of Christ.
