"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 complete, equipped for every good work."

 2 Timothy 3:16–17

What We Believe

As a Southern Baptist Church, the Baptist Faith and Message 2000 stands as our corporate doctrinal statement.

The elders of Harbins are also in doctrinal alignment with the 1689 Baptist Confession of Faith as reflected in our Elder Affirmation of Faith. We firmly stand on the Five Solas of the Protestant Reformation.

The Sufficiency of Scripture

We believe that God has given us everything that we need to know and glorify Him in the Bible. At Harbins, we submit everything we do to the authority of God's Word.

The Supremacy of the Gospel

We believe that God has written the entirety of history with the gospel at the center. If all of history has Jesus' life, death, and resurrection at the center, so should God's church.

The Priority of Preaching

We believe that God still speaks today. Every time the church gathers and God's Word is preached, God speaks. God builds His Church through the preaching of His Word.

The Necessity of Discipleship

God gave the church one mission—to make disciples. The Christian life is not meant to be lived alone. Discipleship is necessary for healthy growth in the Christian life.

The Solemnity of the Family

The family is the first institution in the world and the bedrock of civilization. The family is vital for the local church and the goal of reaching every generation with the gospel.

The Gravity of Missions

The Church is composed of a people from every tribe, tongue, and nation. We must go forth into all the earth, preaching the good news of the gospel to all nations and calling everyone, everywhere to repentance & faith in Christ.
