September 19 – November 7



Jesus died on the cross to take away our sin, give us new life, and become our king. We do everything by the power of the cross.


Jesus lives in perfect fellowship with the Father and Holy Spirit. Like the Trinity, we do everything in the context of community.


Jesus’ mission is to build a growing kingdom of grace and love on earth. We do everything in light of his redemptive mission.


Jesus lives to bring glory to the Father. We do everything to glorify God above all else, and we want to influence others to do the same.

Only love for Christ has the power to incapacitate the sturdy love for self that is the bane of every sinner, and only the grace of Christ has the power to produce that love.

Why Is Prayer So Hard?

What happens when you sit down to pray in the morning? If you’re like me, sometimes you’re not even fifteen seconds in when your mind starts wandering off. You start thinking about your to-do list, and you realize you forgot to put something on your to-do list....

A Guide to Fasting and Prayer

Why We Need Mirrors

I’m a pretty good guy. I love my wife, I provide for my family, I volunteer my time in the community. I even serve God full-time. Compared to many people in the world, I think I’m doing well. I’ll bet Isaiah felt the same way. As a prophet, his job...

Which measuring tape are you using?

Quick, think of one thing you’re pretty good at. Got it? OK, now think of one thing you’re not that great at. I asked a few people those questions and got answers like these: “I think I’m pretty good at cooking.” … “People...

Opportunities to Serve

We believe that one of the best ways to experience the fullness of life as a Christian is to serve others both inside the church and outside the church.  There are many opportunities that we have to do both here at Harbor Church.  Serving others is the way that God...

Why God gave us crazy prophecies

Have you read the book of Revelation lately? What about Ezekiel or Daniel? There’s some crazy stuff in there. Pictures of dragons, beasts, flaming chariots, armies of angels, and on and on. Some people live for those parts of the Bible. They spend a lot of time...

God’s power is soothing. And scary.

Anyone who’s been in a Sunday-school class or a seminary study has learned about God’s omnipotence. He’s in control of everything, and has power over everything. Yawn, next topic. Viewing God’s ultimate power as just one out of a long...

Ministry Focus: Common Grace

You’re a 3-watt nightlight shining like a nuclear reactor.

God is supremely glorious. If there’s one thing clear from Scripture, that’s it. But what’s amazing to me is how he chooses to display his glory. David says it this way: O Lord, our Lord, how majestic is your name in all the earth! You have set your...
