Philosophy of Ministry
Parenting in the twenty-first century is no easy task! Years ago parents could go to their immediate family for help/advice about raising their children. But so many parents don't have that as an option anymore. What makes it even more difficult is we live in a world where there are so many experts or those who give advice in field of parenting. But what's a parent to do when the experts don't agree? Who can they turn to with confidence today?
We at Harvest Bible Chapel Lake Zurich are first and foremost committed to sharing with parents the instruction that is available from God's Word. We also support those parenting experts whose approach is taken from God's Word or does not directly violate its teachings or principles.
We understand every child is created uniquely and that no one parenting style will work for every child or family. However, there are several Biblical principles that all healthy families will hold to be true. Therefore, we will make a variety of good Christian information available to our parents.
Our prayer is that each child will accept Jesus Christ as their Lord and Savior, develop a personal relationship with Him, learn to know and live the Word, learn to pray effectively, learn to worship God in a personal and corporate setting, learn to lay down lives for Him, and learn to take the Word to their world. We want to help each child come into a greater knowledge of the Bible by studying its characters, stories and principles, as well as, know that Jesus loves them totally and provides for their every need. Our purpose is to help each child find and fulfill their God-given destiny.
