OUR FOCUS is relentlessly vertical

Glorify God Through The Fulfillment of The Great Commission

God's glory is central to all we do at Harvest. We preach, worship, pray and witness for the purpose of making His name famous! We hope you enjoy exploring our site! If you are interested in finding out more about our church planting effort in Albany, send us an email. We'd love to hear from you! harvestalbany@gmail.com

Our foundation and pillars

Christ alone is our cornerstone and the foundation on which we build our lives and ministry! However, the practical outworking of this at Harvest Albany is done through an undistracted focus on our Four Pillars. This is simply what we are about. We are committed to unapologetic preaching, unashamed adoration, unceasing prayer and the unafraid witness of the Gospel.


We Make Disciples

The great commission certainly includes the idea of making "converts" but the main emphasis is in making disciples. It's for that reason that we spend ourselves on the pursuit of seeing lost people saved, saved people matured and matured people multiplied. We do this through an intense focus on quality discipleship. If you're looking for a place to get lost in the crowd or you simply want to just hang out, we may not be a great fit. However, if you want to dive into all that God has for you in a pursuit of maturity and meaning, join us!


We Keep It Simple

What it means to be a disciple is often times confusing

and grossly misunderstood. We believe the teaching

of God's word is simple, a follower of Christ should

worship, walk with and work for Christ!

A strong focus on each of these elements is vitally

important for the health of both the individual

and the local church.


 Contemporary Without Compromise

When it comes to corporate worship, we believe that fresh and contemporary expressions are both good and healthy. Yet, while we are more contemporary in style, we refuse to compromise when it comes to the truth. For this reason, we strive to lift high the name of Jesus and we exert ourselves in leading God's people to lift their hearts and voices to Him, giving Him praise and thanks in music and lyrics.

It's our firm belief that God is glorified when His people not only acknowledge His omnipresence but yearn for His manifest presence! This is one of the key components that distinguishes a Vertical Church from a Horizontal one.
