Core Values / Church Covenant
O U R    V I S I O N    S T A T E M E N T :
  “To build a healthy, exciting, Spirit-led Church; willing, equipped and actively reaching out to others for Jesus Christ.”
O U R   C O R E    V A L U E S :
  1. God is Head
We value the Triune God above all as Lord of HRBC.
        As God the Father – Creator of the Universe, Sovereign, Holy
        and God the Son - Jesus Christ, the Son of God, Redeemer, Messiah, Saviour
        and God the Holy Spirit – Counselor, Empowerer of Spiritual Gifts

2. God’s Word
The Holy Bible: We value God’s Word as the only, authoritative foundation for all truth in preaching and teaching. Within His inerrant and infallible Word, God reveals Himself, with historical and prophetic accuracy. II Timothy 3:16 – “All Scripture is God breathed and useful for teaching, rebuking, correcting and training in righteousness.”

3. Prayer
We value prayer as a means to regularly acknowledge God, confess our sins before Him, thank Him for all He has done and present our supplications (requests) for Him to address.

4. Loving and Caring
We value people, with a priority to making Harmony Road Baptist Church a friendly, loving and caring Church family through service to one another.

5. Ministry Groups for Personal Spiritual Growth
We value a variety of groups that foster and encourage spiritual growth and discipleship for all ages.

6. Worship
We value the individual and corporate worship of our God and Saviour Jesus Christ, lifting up our voices in praise and adoration. We value God’s people sharing in word, song and instrument, according to their giftedness.

7. Outreach
We value and support ministries that meet physical and spiritual needs both in our community and abroad. We encourage generosity in love, understanding and compassion toward all peoples.

8. Stewardship
We value proper care of the resources that the Lord has given us, being cognizant that all we have belongs to Him.

9. Leadership Development
We value strength in leadership – understanding that potential leaders require opportunities for discipleship and development, and those in leadership position need to be empowered with our support.

C H U R C H    C O V E N A N T :
Believing that the Holy Spirit has led us to recieve Jesus Christ as Saviour and Lord, and upon the public profession of our faith, having been baptized by immersion in the name of the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit, we do now in the presence of God, gladly enter into covenant with one another, as one body in Christ.
The Lord being our helper, we purpose:
  to care for one another in Christian Love;
  to work for the growth of Harmony Road Baptist Church in spiritual maturity, holiness and fellowship;
  to faithfully support its worship ordinances, discipline and doctrines; and
  to strengthen its ministry by the cheerful and regular giving of tithes and offerings.
We acknowledge that God has called us:
  to be His lights in a world of sin and injustice;
  to make disciples of all nations, baptizing and teaching them to obey Christ's commands; and
  to seek the relief of those in distress.
We accept the responsibility:
  to honour God in our homes;
  to educate our children from the Word of God and in the ways of our faith; and
  to be an example by our zealous Christian service.
Should we move from this place, we will unite with another Church, as soon as possible, in whose fellowship we can carry out the spirit of this covenant and the principles of God's Word.
