“Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your MIND. This is the first and greatest commandment.”
Matthew 22:37-38


At Harbor, we want to pursue God with all our hearts, all our souls and all our MINDS. We believe we are not called to a blind faith, but a reasonable faith based upon the truth of reality. Throughout the Bible God repeatedly calls upon us to think rightly and to use our minds to come to a proper understanding of the world in which we live. God never desires for His people to neglect reasonable thought or to cling to the false idea that reality is illusionary. Join us in using our minds to discover the truth about God and the world in which we live!

“For wisdom will enter your heart, and KNOWLEDGE will be pleasant to your soul.”      Proverbs 2:10
