The Harrodsburg Community Church was founded as a distinct fellowship in 1978. It grew out of a women’s prayer group which had been meeting in homes for some time prior to this. The prayer group was interdenominational in nature, with many churches in the area represented in the group. This group was seeking a more intimate and caring fellowship, and cherished the opportunities to come together for times of sharing from the Bible, sharing testimonies and worship with greater freedom.
Experiencing in the home prayer group an intimate, caring fellowship with dynamic teaching and worship, the group decided to form an interdenominational community church in which believers from all church traditions would be welcome on the confession of faith in Christ Jesus and a desire to be His disciple, embracing the whole body of Christ, the church.
Since 1978, the Harrodsburg Community Church has grown into a more established congregation. In 1986, a building was completed that currently houses the church, as well as several classes for the local Christian School. In 1994, a second building was constructed to be used by the church and Central Kentucky Christian School, and today is being used by God’s Tree House Academy. The addition of this 7,000 square foot building has been a wonderful blessing to both the church and the school.
Harrodsburg Community Church holds strongly to the unity of all believers in Jesus Christ, and therefore seeks to work together with them in the building of the Kingdom. The church seeks to work with other fellowships within the area to advance the cause of Christ in the local community.
As we seek to clearly define our purpose and mission as an individual congregation, we have seen the need to provide the hope of Jesus Christ to our community in just the way God has best equipped us.
Harrodsburg Community Church, therefore, has developed this mission statement, “Our mission is to minister God’s healing grace, enabling every person to be all that God created them to be.”
The mission is built upon Jesus’ anointing when He said, “the Spirit of the Lord is upon Me, because He hath anointed Me to preach the gospel to the poor; He hath sent Me to heal the brokenhearted, to preach deliverance to the captives, and recovering of sight to the blind, to set at liberty them that are bruised, to preach the acceptable year of the Lord.”
