About Our Services:
As a visitor to Breakthrough Harvest Church you might notice some things that stand out from the "church as usual" crowd. We are a people that believe Jesus Christ is the same today as He has always been, and that by the Holy Spirit He is still moving in the earth to save people from their sins, offer healing to the sick and the broken-hearted, and to manifest His presence and power through the Gifts of the Spirit. If you have never been to a Pentecostal church before, to help answer the questions that sometimes arise concerning the order and flow of the service, we share the following information with you. If you would have lingering questions, please feel free to ask our leadership, or to contact the Pastor.
FREE EXPRESSION IN WORSHIP:
We believe, as the Bible teaches, that all things are to be done "decently and in order" (1 Corinthians 14:40) and that the scriptures do encourage God's people to worship Him with great joy and fervor. As a result, we consider our services to be a time of celebration and rejoicing. Knowing that we serve a risen and resurrected Savior that loves and blesses His people makes it easy to praise Him with all our hearts and strength. Our time in Praise and Worship is important, not only to set the tone for the service but also in the battles we find ourselves warring against every day. With praise as a weapon we can put our adversary on the run and release the victory Jesus has purchased. (1 Samuel 16:23 ~ 2 Chronicles 16:23)
THE RAISING OF HANDS:
The Apostle Paul instructed believers by saying, "I will therefore that men pray everywhere, lifting up holy hands, without wrath and doubting." (1 Timothy 2:8) Also, in Lamentations 3:41 the prophet declares "Let us lift up our heart with our hands unto God in the heavens." When we lift up our hands in worship, we are making an outward expression that we are also lifting our hearts and lives to our Lord Jesus Christ in complete surrender.
THE LAYING ON OF HANDS:
Speaking of believers in His Name, Jesus said that they would "lay hands on the sick" and they would recover (Mark 16:18). James 5:16 also says to " . . . pray one for another that you may be healed . . . " In many instances recorded in scripture, when Jesus and others ministered healing to or prayed for the various needs of people, it was often done by the laying on of hands. There are in fact a number of situations in which the laying on of hands is practiced here at Breakthrough Harvest Church, all in accordance with the scriptures and in an appropriate manner.
THE GIFTS of the SPIRIT:
In chapters 12 and 14 of 1 Corinthians, the Apostle Paul discusses the different ways the Holy Spirit moves in the church and in the lives of believers. The pastoral staff endeavors to be sensitive to the Spirit of God when He might choose to manifest Himself in any of these ways. For instance, God may give a word of knowledge regarding those in the service with a particular problem whom God is desiring to minister to. Or perhaps there may be a prophecy -or an inspired utterance- which edifies, exhorts, and comforts God's people.
The Bible also speaks of different kinds of tongues in the book of Acts. When believers were filled with the Holy Spirit they began to speak in other tongues. (Acts 2:4) There is a type of tongues, known as a congregational tongue, that requires a public interpretation to be in order and another that is for personal edification. (1 Corinthians 14:1-5 ; 12-28) This topic is discussed in greater detail in the section titled "The Baptism in the Holy Ghost".
