About Our Church
Harvest Pointe Community Church was established in 2001 and has ties to the Southern Baptist Convention. We are an elder-led and theologically reformed church that is contemporary in musicality, holds a high view for the inerrancy and authority of the Bible,
whose discipleship process is modeled around the community group format, and has a mission statement that reads “Love God. Love People.” We currently have an average attendance of 200-250 on a given Sunday morning between 2 worship services, and maintain 12-15
community groups that meet in homes throughout the week. The demographic of the church lends itself to young families (median age of 40) and has growing children and student ministries. The church has grown over the past 18 months from an average of 130 to
240 on Sunday morning and is primed for continued growth. We currently meet in a local elementary school but have aspirations to purchase property or build on 17 acres of land that we currently own outside of town.
