We are Harbour Church. We have established these Christ-centered, Holy Spirit-empowered, and relationally-focused values at the center of all we do as a community.
IDENTITY: His process in usWe are all on a journey…
We are destined to live the life that Jesus modeled for us. It’s a beautiful process of finding freedom all while discovering who we were always created to be, in Him. Progress over perfection. Take a deep breath and remember this: what He began in you, He will bring to completion.
INTIMACY: His presence with usThere is no distance here…
Through Christ, we have been restored back into an intimate relationship with God. Because of this, we are able to truly know God through unhindered access to His presence, which gives us comfort, hope, and empowerment along the way!
IMPACT: His purpose through usEvery life is essential…
We each have a specific calling to make a difference in this world. This is done by discovering the intent that He has for our lives. Our purpose is tied to our story and to the stories of those we are destined to run with in this life. That’s when it really gets fun, because we find out that we are way better together!
INHERITANCE: His promise for UsAll this really does matter…
As God’s children, we are heirs to all He has promised us. This is good news! A true legacy, however, is passing on all we have received to someone else, just as Christ did. The ceiling of our accomplishments serve as the floor for the next generation. This is how we build something that truly lasts. We are destined to make a difference in the lives of others. Let’s go!

BIBLICAL LEADERSHIP STRUCTURE
Ephesians 4:11 says that Jesus has called some in the Body of Christ to function as apostles, prophets, evangelists, pastors or teachers. According to the text, these gifts are given to the Body for two purposes: equipping the saints for the work of ministry and edifying the Body of Christ. As the following verses promise, when these gifts function in their correct purpose, “…we (will) all come into the unity of the faith and the knowledge of the Son of God, to a perfect man, to the measure of the fullness of Christ” (Ephesians 4:12-13).
We believe that God’s design is for a local church to be led and shepherded by a team of Ephesians 4:11 equippers; and we believe this takes place when a number of equippers function as a team of elders (Acts 14:23, 16:4, 20:17, 20:28, 1 Timothy 5:1, 5:17-21, 1 Peter 5:1-5). The members of this team are ordained and set in place by a lead elder, which in many church settings today is referred to as a Senior Pastor.
The lead elder’s role is to serve the other team elders by moderating, coordinating, envisioning and motivating, while functioning in the specific Ephesians 4:11 gift(s) that God has given him. This team works together to facilitate spiritual maturity in the life of every believer.
