Building Up in Christ, Reaching Out in Love
"Welcome! Glad you found our website. We are Stone Harbor Church and I am Johnny Potter, serving the church as pastor. We are a small non-denominational Christian church with a high view of Scripture, Jesus and His church. You can find us at 235 Reindollar in Marina CA on the corner of Reindollar and Sunset. We meet for Bible study on Sundays at 9:30 and worship at 10am. Join us!
What We Are All About -- We are all about personally and relationally knowing God better as He has revealed Himself in all the Scriptures from Genesis to Revelation and most perfectly in the person of Jesus the Christ who has inaugurated the kingdom of God in His life, death, resurrection and the sending of His Spirit and who is Himself the fulfillment and epitome of all that God has promised. We rely on the necessary help of the Holy Spirit and seek to live in such a way that God would be glorified as our words and deeds help others to know Him as He is.
What Inspired Our Name
Here are some of the Scriptures behind our name.
"Therefore thus says the Lord God, "Behold, I am laying in Zion a stone, a tested stone, A costly cornerstone for the foundation, firmly placed. He who believes in it will not be disturbed." Isaiah 28:16
"And coming to Him as to a living stone which has been rejected by men, but is choice and precious in the sight of God, you also as living stones, are being built up as a spiritual house for a holy priesthood, to offer up spiritual sacrifices acceptable to God through Jesus Christ." 1 Peter 2:4-5
"So then you are no longer strangers and aliens, but you are fellow citizens with the saints, and are of God's household, having been built on the foundation of the apostles and prophets, Christ Jesus Himself being the cornerstone, in whom the whole building, being fitted together, is growing into a holy temple in the Lord, in whom you also are being built together into a dwelling of God in the Spirit." Ephesians 2:19-22
Our hope is that our congregation would be a harbor for many who would find here a place to be equipped and sent out, prepared and provisioned to accomplish God's purposes.
What we are up to right now? Currently, during the week we are considering Pastor Kit Culver's series entitled,
"Sacred Space: God with Us."
