Thank you for your interest in Harvest USA!
We would like to tell you a little about our history...
Harvest USA began in 1983, as an outreach ministry in Center City, Philadelphia to the homosexual community to provide hope in the Gospel of Jesus Christ. The ministry reached out to men and women who heard the gospel and desired to leave behind the gay lifestyle.
Since then Harvest USA has expanded its outreach to include those who struggle with sexual sin issues of all types, such as pornography, sexual addictions, etc. The ministry today works directly with men, women, youth and even entire families who have been impacted by these devastating issues. We remain committed to our vision statement: Proclaiming Christ as Lord to a Sexually Broken World.
Today, the larger mission of the ministry is to partner with and equip the church in bringing the power of the gospel of Jesus Christ to transform the lives of those affected by sexual sin. The church is called by God to be the primary community in which life-changing transformation happens. The church needs, perhaps more so than ever before in this culture of rampant sensuality and broken sexuality, to be a place where sin-struggling men and women—believers and non-believers—can find transforming hope in the grace of Jesus Christ. Our goal is to partner with local churches to help them address these issues, and equip men and women to step into the lives of those impacted by sexual sin and brokenness. Read more.
And, we would like to tell you what we believe:
We believe God is one Being existing in three persons: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. God is the Sovereign, the Creator, and the Sustainer of all things. God is the source and the end of all truth. Jesus Christ is the eternal begotten Son of God, conceived by the Holy Spirit and born of the Virgin Mary, fully God and fully man. Christ, having accomplished a perfect, substitutional, sacrificial, and atoning work in His life and death, now lives as resurrected and ascended Lord to act as intercessor and mediator before God on behalf of all believers.
We believe that the Scriptures, consisting of the Old and New Testaments, are the inspired and written word of God, inerrant in their original writings, the infallible authority by which He directs and governs all our activities. The Scriptures are in and of themselves the basis for teaching, reproof, correction, and training in godly living.
We believe that man was created in the image of God as a rational, moral, and spiritual being. Man sinned in Adam and fell with him in his first transgression into a state of death and separation from God. Man’s fall affected him spiritually, intellectually, and physically. He is restored and reconciled only by the renewing grace of the Holy Spirit and the cleansing blood of the Lord Jesus Christ. Read more.
