Harvest Bible Church was started on October 4, 1994. Pastor Mark Butler came to Stockton from Pittsburgh PA, where he had pastored a church there. Sensing that God had a new assignment for him, he set himself to pray and through that he came to Stockton. God spoke Hebrews 11:10 to his heart and told him that Stockton was a city who’s builder and maker is God! Stockton and San Joaquin county may get a lot of bad press, but Harvest Bible Church is here to make a difference and to tell of the great love God has for the people of Stockton, Lodi and surrounding SanJoaquin community! Pastor Mark and his wife Pamela and the whole body of believers at Harvest Bible Church are continuing to bring faith, hope, and love to everyone they meet! Come and be a part of our story that is going to continue until the return of the Lord!
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
