Frequently Asked Questions
How is Harvest different than any other church?
We say “All Churches Aren’t the Same. Come See Why!!” because Harvest is a family oriented, multi-cultural, multi-generational, Spirit filled church for everyone. At Harvest, we believe that regardless of your yesterday, God has a great future in store for you. We’re not a place of judgment nor condemnation, but a place full of life. You’ll leave energized, encouraged, inspired, and informed with the practical tools to make changes in your life.
What denomination is Harvest?
Harvest is a non-denominational, charismatic (Spirit-filled) church.
Why does Harvest have a bishop? What’s the difference between a bishop and a pastor?
A bishop is a “pastor’s pastor.” Bishop Foreman’s dynamic leadership allowed him to be chosen to serve as a bishop.
What is the dress code at Harvest?
Dress how you feel comfortable. Maybe for you that’s a suit and tie or maybe it’s jeans and a t-shirt.
What does your “V” symbol represent?
Our “V” represents the victory that we have through and in Christ according to 1st Corinthians 15:56. The cross in the middle is shaped like a sword to represent Christ’s sacrifice on Calvary as well as the Word of God being sharper than a dual edged sword.

Why do we baptize in water?
Jesus commanded the apostles to baptize those who would believe in Him in water (Matthew 28:18-20). Water baptism is for the remission of sins (Acts 2:38) and for the believer’s identification with Christ (Colossians 2:12).
Why do we dedicate children?
We dedicate children to set them apart to live for God.
I have seen people randomly bringing their offering to the altar. Why does this happen?
The Bible admonishes us to “bring our offering to the altar” (Matthew 5:23-24). This typically occurs when a message is speaking in a very distinct way to an individual. You are free to do this at anytime during a worship experience.
Why do we worship God as we do?
Standing – Nehemiah 9:2-3 Prayer – Psalm 143:1 Bowing – Psalm 95:6 Dancing, Leaping, or Running – Psalm 30:11 Lifting Hands – Psalm 63:4 Singing & Clapping – Psalm 47:1 Using music – Psalm 150:4
