Our vision can be summed up in one statement:"To Reap the End-time Harvest in The Bahamas and Beyond."
The two foundational pillars of the Vision are PRAYER and LABOR. A Laborer's responsibility is to be employed in the service of the Lord. Persons whom God has set in Bahamas Harvest Church have been excellent volunteers, sacrificially investing their time, talent and treasure in the fulfillment of the church's vision. By God's grace and appointment, this is who we are! This is what we do!
In 1992, Pastor Mario felt the call to attend World Harvest Bible College, Columbus, Ohio. During his time at the college, he acknowledged the call of God upon his life to become a pastor.
On Sunday, July 16th, 1995, Pastor Rod Parsley, their pastor and spiritual father, publicly released and commissioned Pastors Mario & Erika to fulfill the vision God gave them for the Bahamas. He commissioned them with these prophetic words, which are now engrafted in their lives and destiny:
· Integrity will be the Key
· Unction will be the Demonstration
· Glory will be the Reward
· Harvest will be the Increase
Bahamas Harvest Church was birthed on Sunday, November 19th, 1995, with a guaranteed Laborship of Pastor Moxey, his wife Erika and their two children, Alec and Rachelle.
Services for Bahamas Harvest Church were first held in a rented storefront at the Sea Grapes Shopping Plaza. On April 4th, 2000, a groundbreaking ceremony was held for the construction of the new church family facility located on Blueberry Hill Road, Prince Charles.
In February 2002, we completed our 9,600 square feet family worship facility and in 2007, the same facility was expanded to 15,000 square feet.

What We Believe:
“There is one Body and one Spirit …one Lord, one faith, one baptism, and one God and father of all…”Eph. 4:4-6 (NKJV)
God is the Creator and Ruler of the universe. He has eternally existed in three personalities: the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit. These three are co-equal and are one God.
Genesis 1:1, 26,27, 3:22; Psalm 90:2; Matthew 28:19; 1 Peter 1:2; 2 Corinthians 13:14
Jesus Christ is the Son of God. He is 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 return again someday to earth to reign as Kings of Kings, and Lords of Lords. His redemptive work on the cross provides healing of the human body in answer to believing prayer.
Matthew 1:22, 23; Isaiah 9:6; John 1:1-5; 14:10-30; Hebrews 4:14, 15; 1 Corinthians 15:3,4; Roman 1:3,4; Acts 1:9-11; 1 Timothy 6:14,15; Titus 2:13; Isaiah 53:4-5; 1 Peter 2:24; James 5:14-15; Matthew 8:17
The Holy Spirit is co-equal with the Father and the Son of God. He is present in the world to make men aware of their need for Jesus Christ. He also lives in every Christian from the moment of salvation. He provides the Christian with 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 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.
2 Timothy 3:16; 2 Peter 1:20, 21; 2 Timothy 1:13; Psalm 119:105, 160, 12:6; Proverbs 30:5
People are made in the spiritual images of God, to be like Him in character. People are 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 cause many problems in life.
