TRUTH BE TOLD
THE TRUTH ABOUT...
TRUTH is 'that which corresponds to reality'! TRUTH is at the heart of Jesus' mission on earth. Jesus said "…For this purpose I was born and for this purpose I have come into the world—to bear witness to the truth. Everyone who is of the truth listens to my voice.” JOHN 18:37B
We invite you to join us as we put truth on trial in our new series TRUTH BE TOLD.

COLLEEN GLEN SITE
Sunday 9am at 17 De Stades Road.
Our first Multi-Site launched in 2015 in the Colleen Glen community under the Pastoral Care of André and Lizelle Botha and led by our Multi-Site Pastors David and Christine Walland.
A MultiSite carries our heart and ministry style in it's Welcome, Worship, Word, Ministry, Kids Programmes, Events, and even the same great coffee that is served before and after the services.
Our Church exists to draw people into a love relationship with Jesus Christ, to help them live the victorious life that He promises and to see every person being a source of blessing to others.
Our Vision is that we as a church family would continue ‘Taking Ground for Christ & His Kingdom’ in every part of our community.
Our Mission is to Draw the Lost to Christ, The Found to Victory, and Being a Resource to Others.
Our leaders are here to equip people for the work of the ministry, which is always meant to be outwardly focused, looking to the needs of others, extending His Kingdom. We have been called by God to be a resource church and so our heart is to equip people to be whole in themselves, to be victorious in life and then to be there for others.
Our Motto is to Love Extravagantly, Live Victoriously and Touch the World.
Our mission and motto sum up for us in our own language the Great Commission (Matthew 28:19-20) and the Great Commandment (Matthew 22:37-39), which Jesus has given us.
Our Values are formed upon the foundation of the heart and beliefs we share as a family within Church of the Nations, they are; People and Family, Fatherhood and Sonship, Spirit Filled Living, Bible Based and Spirit Led, Kingdom Living, Apostolic Mission, Servanthood, Team, Excellence and Godly Stewardship.

CHURCH OF THE NATIONS
Harvest is a member of an international family of churches known as Church of the Nations
It is not a denomination, but an apostolic network of churches held together by relationships.
Our aim is simple. We are here to build a family of churches, reaching the nations.
At this stage we have representation in over fifty nations and based on simple family values and relationships, COTN continues to grow and change lives.
We have minimal structure founded on the Hebrew model of family and hold ourselves accountable to one another through meaningful, growing relationships based on fatherhood and sonship.
For an in-depth understanding of our heart and belief we encourage you to attend an
EXPLORE NEW MEMBERS CLASS
OUR STATEMENT OF FAITH
We believe in the Scriptures of the Old and New Testaments in their original writing as fully inspired of God and accept them as the supreme and final authority for faith, life and the governance of this Church.
We believe in one God, eternally existing in three Persons - Father, Son and Holy Spirit.
We believe that Jesus Christ was begotten of the Father, conceived by the Holy Spirit, born of the virgin Mary and is true God and true man.
MAN, SIN & DEATH
We believe that God created man in His own image; that man sinned and thereby incurred the penalty of sin which is death, physical and spiritual; that all human beings inherit a sinful nature which issues (in the cases of those who reach moral responsibility) in actual transgression involving personal guilt.
We believe that the Lord Jesus Christ died for our sins a substitutionary sacrifice according to the Scriptures and that all who believe in Him are justified on the grounds of His shed blood.
We believe in the bodily resurrection of the Lord Jesus, His ascension into Heaven, and His present life as our High Priest and Advocate.
We believe in the personal return of the Lord Jesus Christ.
We believe that all who repent of their sin and receive the Lord Jesus Christ by faith are born again of the Holy Spirit and thereby become children of God.
We believe in the baptism in the Holy Spirit, empowering and equipping believers for service, with the accompanying supernatural gifts of the Holy Spirit; and in fellowship with the Holy Spirit.
We believe in the divinely ordained ministries of Apostle, Prophet, Evangelist, Pastor and Teacher.
We believe in the resurrection of both the just and the unjust, the eternal blessedness of the redeemed and the eternal banishment of those who have rejected the offer of salvation.
We believe in and subscribe to the Biblical principle of heterosexual relationships between a natural man and a natural woman and that this is the only marriage relationship that constitutes holy matrimony.
We believe that elders carry the responsibility for oversight and care of the members. Where necessary pastors must carry out biblical discipline for the protection of the local Church.
We believe that the one true Church is the whole company of those who have been redeemed by Jesus Christ and regenerated by the Holy Spirit, that the local Church on earth should take its character from this conception of the Church and therefore that the new birth and personal confession of Christ are essentials of Church membership.
BAPTISM AND COMMUNION
We believe that the Lord Jesus Christ appointed two ordinances - Baptism in water and the Lord’s Supper - to be observed as acts of obedience and as perpetual witnesses to the cardinal facts of the Christian faith; that Baptism is the immersion of the believer in water as a confession of identification with Christ in burial and resurrection and that the Lord’s Supper is the partaking of the emblems symbolic of the Sav iour’s broken body and shed blood, in remembrance of His sacrificial death, ‘till He comes.
We believe that divine healing was provided for in the Old Testament and is an integral part of the Gospel.
We believe the Bible teaches that without holiness no man can see the Lord.
We believe in the doctrine of sanctification as definite, yet progressive work of grace, commencing at the time of the new birth and continuing until the consummation of salvation.
The Church is open to any further truth, which the Holy Spirit may illuminate from the Scriptures.
