At Harris Creek, we desire to be biblical, which has implications for us as a church, but also as individuals. If we believe that God’s word is our authority, our conscience, and our guide then it is imperative that each and every member of Harris Creek (and all followers of Jesus) be students of God’s word. We have to know what it says, what it means, and how it applies to our lives. To learn more about the importance of this, check out the sermon Biblical from our series Fresh Start.
