The following comprise the core beliefs of Harbor Community Church (P.C.A.) based on the foundational truths taught in the Bible. All of our teaching and ministry is rooted in and flows out of these biblical doctrines.
The Bible is true, the Gospel is exclusive, the mission is essential. Harbor is first and foremost a church which finds its place in the overall narrative of scripture and affirms what Christian churches over the centuries have affirmed: The Apostles Creed.
The Gospel message is not the ABC’s of the Christian faith, but instead it is the A-Z of the Christian life. The Gospel is our primary motivation and power for all that we preach, sing, pray, and do. As a result, we believe the Gospel of Jesus is the good news not simply for the “lost” but also for the “found.” We never grow tired of hearing this good news.
We find ourselves in the Reformed Tradition, which traces its roots back to the Protestant Reformation in the 16th century. The Reformed Tradition emphasizes the Sovereignty and Glory of God, goodness of creation, the centrality of God’s story in all of life, and the necessity of grace for salvation.
This means that we are governed by elders elected by our congregation and tangibly connected to a number of other churches in a given geographic region. We are a congregation of the Presbyterian Church in America, although we have people from a variety of different backgrounds who have found a home at Harbor.
