“Not forsaking the assembling of ourselves together, as is the manner of some, but exhorting one another, and so much the more as you see the Day approaching.”
For the word of God is alive and active. Sharper than any double-edged sword, it penetrates even to dividing soul and spirit, joints and marrow; it judges the thoughts and attitudes of the heart.
God is spirit, and his worshipers must worship in the Spirit and in truth.
We have different gifts, according to the grace given to each of us. If your gift is prophesying, then prophesy in accordance with your faith;
(1 Corinthians 12 and Romans 12:6).
“No eye has seen, nor ear heard, nor the heart of man imagined, what God has prepared for those who love Him”
(1 Corinthians 2:9).
We worship God authentically when we know him truly and treasure him duly.
Are you facing a challenging situation at the moment? Because of the finished work of Jesus at the cross, today, you can come boldly to your heavenly Father's throne of grace with your cares and obtain mercy in your time of need (see Hebrews 4:16)!
You're important to God, and you're important to us at Harvest House International. When it comes to prayer, we believe that God wants to meet your needs and reveal His promises to you. So whatever you're concerned about and need prayer for, we want to be here for you!
Hebrews 13:7 says “Obey your leaders and submit to their authority.” That’s your part as “laypeople”. Here’s our part as leaders: “They keep watch over you as men who must give an account.” As a Church we take very seriously our responsibility before God to watch care for souls.

The truth is that we are being prepared for eternity. God is building character within us that will last forever. He is most concerned about our character and motives. The unique trials that each of us face on earth are designed by an eternal God who sees and knows all. They are not a mistake or by chance. Of course, we ourselves make mistakes, but God can turn them all into good (Romans 8:28). He knows our advantages and our disadvantages–our family backgrounds, our marriages, our education, and everything about us, even to the minutest detail. He sees the good and bad circumstances that we face. We must realize that God sees everything in the eternal context, but we live in a world that wants everything now.
All Scripture is God-breathed and is useful for instruction, for conviction, for correction, and for training in righteousness
