Harvesters is an international church planting, pastor training and Bible distribution ministry operating in 50 countries world wide and there are more than 51 000 churches planted already. We believe that saturation church planting is by far the most effective way of fulfilling the Great Commission. We thank God for every missionary who has gone ahead of us, preparing the harvest, as we find ourselves often building on the foundations laid by dedicated men and women of God who were called to the areas we work in. The foundation of our model was designed and built upon with the global church in mind with church saturation covering an entire nation. We aim to reach everyone. Our hope is that not one person will be left without having heard the Good News. Our greatest challenge remains Bibles. Currently we are planting 30 new churches every day! Just to supply the future leader of each church with a Bible means we need 1,000 Bibles per month or 12,000 per year. We need your help. Yours in His service Steven Loots Founder, CEO 2 Timothy 2:2 “and all the things you have heard me say in the presence of many witnesses entrust to reliable people who will also be qualified to teach others. “

Harvesters Statement of Faith

SCRIPTURE - We believe that the Bible is God's written revelation to man and that it is verbally inspired, authoritative and without error in the original manuscripts. (2 Timothy 3:16; 2 Peter 1:21; John 10:35; Matthew 5:18). It is our sufficient and final authority for faith and practice. GOD – We believe that there is one God, eternally existing in three persons: the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit. (Deuteronomy 6:4; 2 Corinthians 13:14) Father – We believe that the Father is the one true and living God. He is the Creator, Sovereign Ruler, and Preserver of all things whether visible or invisible. JESUS CHRIST - We believe in the deity of our Lord, Christ Jesus. Jesus is God incarnate, and was manifest in human flesh. He was like us in all ways except for one, being free from sin. (Isaiah 9:6-7) (John 1:1-14) (John 5:22-23) (John 8:54-58) (John 10:30). We believe that Jesus Christ was conceived by the Holy Spirit, born of the Virgin Mary. He led a sinless life, took on Himself all our sins, died and rose again, and is seated at the right hand of the Father as our mediator and advocate. We believe that Jesus Christ made a full payment for the sins of the whole world by shedding His own blood upon the cross as a perfect and sufficient sacrifice. We believe in the second coming of our Lord, Jesus Christ. (Matthew 24:1-44) (John 14:1-3) (Acts 1:9-11) (I Corinthians 15:20-24) (I Thessalonians 4:15-17) (I Thessalonians 5:1-3) (II Thessalonians 2:1-4) (Titus 2:11-13). HOLY SPIRIT - We believe in the personality and deity of the Holy Spirit, that He performs the miracle of the new birth in an unbeliever and indwells believers, enabling them to live a Godly life. (Acts 5:3, 4; Titus 3:5; Romans 8:9; Ephesians 4:30; 5:18). MAN, FREE-WILL, AND SIN – We believe that all men everywhere are lost and face the judgment of God, and need to come to a saving knowledge of Jesus Christ through His shed blood on the cross. Through Jesus Christ, God freely offers grace to all mankind; enabling all who turn to Him pardon and cleansing from sin. RESURRECTION, HEAVEN, AND HELL – We believe there will be a resurrection of the body for both the saved and unsaved dead. For those who are saved, they will be in the immediate presence of God. For those who are not saved, they will be cast into the lake of fire, or hell. THE CHURCH AND ITS UNITY – We believe that the Church is the universal body of Christ composed of all true believers in Christ, with Christ as its head. All true Christians are members of one another and should love one another, build each other up in the faith, and obey Christ’s great commission by reaching the whole world with the gospel of Jesus Christ.
