The Harbor Verse

They rejoiced when the waves grew quiet. Then he guided them to The Harbor they longed for.”

Psalm 107:30


Here at The Harbor Church, we cherish the Bible's words, finding personal guidance in them. The verse that moves us is Psalm 107:30 "They rejoiced when the waves grew quiet. Then He guided them to the harbor they longed for." CSB.

When you read "They rejoiced," it reminds us of how we, together, REJOICE IN JESUS. It's a celebration of the joy and peace He brings into our lives.

The part "when the waves grew quiet" speaks to me about how WE OVERCOME WITH JESUS. We find calm and strength in Him amidst life's trials and storms.

"Then He guided them" resonates with our belief that WE FOLLOW THE GREATEST LEADER. Jesus is our compass, guiding us towards wisdom, righteousness, and eternal life.

And "to The Harbor they longed for" illustrates our journey where WE BECOME MORE LIKE JESUS EVERYDAY. This is our path of spiritual growth, striving to reflect His love and compassion in everything we do.


The Harbor Church exists to help people love fully and live authentically with God and others.


To develop transparent and authentic followers of Christ who become safe Biblical harbors by teaching others how to love fully and live authentically.

GOD is the Creator and Ruler of the universe. He has eternally existed in three persons: the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit. These three are co-equal and are one God.

The Harbor Church Odessa, FL: BELIEFS

JESUS is the Son of God, co-equal with the Father. Jesus lived a sinless human life and offered Himself as the perfect sacrifice for the sins of all people by dying on a cross. He arose from the dead after three days to demonstrate His power over sin and death. He ascended to Heaven’s glory and will return again to earth to reign as King of Kings, and Lord of Lords.

The Harbor Church Odessa, FL: BELIEFS

The HOLY SPIRIT is co-equal with the Father and Jesus, the Son of God. He is present in the world to make men aware of their need for Jesus Christ. He lives in every Christian from the moment of salvation, providing power for living, understanding of spiritual truth, and guidance in doing what is right. He gives every believer a spiritual gift when they are saved. As Christians we seek to live under His control daily.

The Harbor Church Odessa, FL: BELIEFS

The BIBLE is God’s Word to us. It was written by human authors under the supernatural guidance of the Holy Spirit. It is the supreme source of truth for Christian beliefs and living. Because it is inspired by God, it is the truth without any mixture of error.

The Harbor Church, Odessa, FL: BELIEFS

PEOPLE are made in the supernatural image of God, to be like Him in character, as the supreme object of God’s creation. Although every person has tremendous potential for good, all of us are marred by an attitude of disobedience toward God called “sin”. This attitude separates people from God and causes many problems in life.

The Harbor Church, Odessa, FL: BELIEFS

SALVATION is God’s free gift to us but we must accept it. We can never make up for our sin by self-improvement or good works. Only by trusting in Jesus Christ as God’s offer of forgiveness can anyone be saved from sin’s penalty. When we turn from our self-ruled life and turn to Jesus in faith, we are saved. Eternal life begins the moment one receives Jesus Christ into his life by faith.

The Harbor Church, Odessa, FL: BELIEFS

Because God gives us eternal life through Jesus Christ, the true believer has ETERNAL SECURITY in that Salvation forever. If we have been genuinely saved, we cannot “lose” it. Salvation is maintained by the grace and power of God, not by the self-effort of Christians. It is the grace and keeping power of God that gives us this security.

The Harbor Church, Odessa, Florida: BELIEFS

People were created to exist forever. We will exist ETERNALLY, either separated from God by sin, or with God through forgiveness and salvation. To be eternally separated from God is Hell. To be eternally in the right relationship with God is eternal life. Heaven and Hell are real places of eternal existence.
