One of the main reasons I decided to align myself with the Harvest Bible Fellowship is because of an emphasis on God’s Word in everything.
Liberal churches deny the veracity and trustworthiness of the Bible. Pragmatic churches either “hide” the Bible (seeker-driven churches) or choose to focus only on the portions of the Bible that help a person fulfill their dreams (prosperity gospel churches).
But at Harvest Bible Chapel, we (along with many other Bible-based churches) believe that the Bible is God’s Word and the whole Bible is worthy of our diligent study:
Be diligent to present yourself approved to God, a worker who doesn’t need to be ashamed, correctly teaching the word of truth. – 2 Timothy 2.15, HCSB
All Scripture is breathed out by God and profitable for teaching, for reproof, for correction, and for training in righteousness, that the man of God may be competent, equipped for every good work. – 2 Timothy 3.16-17, ESV
If you come to Harvest Bible Chapel, bring a Bible. We will open it together to a section of Scripture and discuss it’s relevance to our lives, seeking God’s help in understanding and applying it.
If you need help understanding the role of the Bible in your life and how to approach God’s Word, we highly recommend God Wrote a Book by Pastor James MacDonald of Harvest Bible Chapel, Rolling Meadows, Illinois.
