WHAT WE BELIEVE
There is one true God. He has revealed himself as the Father, Son and the Holy Spirit. God is One, yet He is three distinct persons. This is the mystery of the Trinity: God is three in One. [Deuteronomy 6:4]
The Bible is the inspired Word of God and is the final authority for all matters of faith and doctrine. [2 Timothy 3:16]
The ‘new birth’ is offered to each person through faith in Jesus Christ. [John 3:3]
The gift of the Holy Spirit is offered to all believers as spiritual power for service. [Acts 1:8]
The provision for physical healing is available through prayer. [James 5:14]
The return of Christ is our blessed hope. [1 Thessalonians 4:16]
The judgment of all men by God will determine a person’s eternal destination. [Rom. 14:10]
OUR CORE VALUES
Providing opportunities to establish a connection with God through Salvation, Baptism, and a life filled with the Holy Spirit.
Providing opportunities for spiritual growth by developing real, honest and Christ-like relationships.
Providing opportunities for EVERY believer to use their time, talents and treasure to positively impact our world.
Providing opportunities for children and youth to fully commit to Christ and fulfill God's purpose for their lives.
In February 1992, Pastors Kevin & Robin Crow moved to North Ridgeville to start the church that is now Harvest Ridge. The first meeting was held in their one bedroom apartment with 12 people present. That core group of 12 people launched services in the Liberty Elementary School gym on May 2, 1992.
God’s blessing has been upon this church in a remarkable way. For over 2 decades, the church has grown each year, with many people coming to a life changing experience with Jesus. These encounters have resulted in healed marriages & families, restored relationships, and physical, emotional & spiritual healing.
From the first days, Harvest Ridge has had a focus on families with young children. We have always had a fully staffed nursery and children’s ministry. Our vision is to create an environment where young families can develop a relationship with Jesus, receive hope and encouragement to have healthy marriages and raise Godly children.
At Harvest Ridge, we also believe in making a positive impact on our community & world. One example is HarvestPalooza. On the Sunday before Labor Day at South Central Park in North Ridgeville, we throw a free party for thousands, including food, games and fireworks!
Harvest Ridge has a great history, but that is nothing compared to the future! You are invited to join HRC as we make an impact on our community, country and world.
