We are a group of imperfect people aiming to point to a perfect Jesus in all we do. We believe the Bible is God's Word and God says that Jesus came to earth being fully man and fully God. Jesus came as the Son of God to die for our sins. We cannot earn God's favor. God freely forgives us when we trust in His Son, Jesus. He is Christ. He is Savior. Jesus is our mediator so that when we enter into a personal relationship with Him, we can boldly approach the throne of God. There is no in between when it comes to a relationship with Jesus. You are either for Him and His teachings or against Him. Where are you with Christ and what will you do about it? Click here to speak with someone about committing your life to Jesus.
At Harlan Park Baptist Church, we desire to BE a place where God is glorified over all as we fix our eyes on Jesus and seek first His kingdom. Our motivation is the glory of God (1 Corinthians 10:31). We believe God is best glorified as we DO these things:
Teach the Truth of the Bible
Form Family Relationships
Honor Faithful Disciple Making
Express Love to God and Others
Practice Outreach and Missions
2 Timothy 3:16
"Body of Christ"
1 Corinthians 13
Matthew 4:19/Matthew 28:18-20
Our mission as a church and our discipleship process are the same. Our plan for moving people into greater levels of spiritual maturity is outlined in our process below. We believe loving God well involves doing these things. These are our family expectations. If you commit yourself to this process, there is a high likelihood you will grow in faith and become more committed to the cause of Christ and the local church (Matthew 28:18-20).
