This body of believers dates back to 1985 when Kim Gray, with his wife Tina and their children moved to Arizona from Oregon so that Pastor Gray could lead Liberty Baptist Church in Phoenix. They moved to their currently location and incorporated as Harvest Baptist Church of Goodyear in September of 1999. They met for several years in the house that was on the property.
By faith in 2007 they trusted God and built the campus that currently sits on the property. The original house is still there and serves as the Fellowship Hall and Missionary Apartment for visiting missionaries.
Over the years we have hosted many missionaries, evangelists and preachers, as well as music and drama teams from several fundamental Christian colleges. God used each of them to mold us to where we are today. By God's grace and help, we as a church will continue in the path He has prepared for us.
Our desire is that the gospel is given here through solid Biblical preaching and teaching, and abroad through a strong missions program. Our church verse is 1 Cor. 1:23a, "But we preach Christ crucified."
