LOVE ON PURPOSE

Jesus replied: “‘Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind.’ This is the first and greatest commandment. And the second is like it: ‘Love your neighbor as yourself.’ All the Law and the Prophets hang on these two commandments.” MATTHEW 22:36-40 NIV

At Harbor.City Church our mission is to inspire people to have a passionate growing relationship with Jesus Christ, build strong families, and learn how to walk in faith.

Your Personal Life

Whatever stage of life you may be in right now, you matter and have a purpose. We want to help you discover the incredible life God designed for you. We would love to be a part of and to help you with the next steps of your journey.  This could look like getting to know God, get connected by joining us regularly, discovering God’s purpose for your life, giving, or serving.

At Harbor.City we believe that we aren’t meant to do life alone and you definitely don’t have to take these next steps alone. We encourage you to find one of our groups to join so that you will have a community of people on our journey with you.

Your Family

Beyond having a strong personal life, we believe it is important to build strong families. That’s why we enable you to help yours grow by providing specially designed services for every age group. Your children are lead every weekend through an age appropriate message to help them grow their individual relationships with God.

Your Faith Walk

We believe that building your faith is an important aspect of accessing all God has in store for your life. Learning to walk in faith is as simple as growing to understand what the bible says about who you are in Christ.

Senior Pastor

Michael Collins is the founding and senior pastor of Harbor City Church (HCC) in Glen Burnie, MD.  Following a vision God gave him and his wife Lisa, they founded the church in 2001 with a purpose to “love God, seek the lost, and disciple the found”.  

Pastor Michael has a deep heart for the poor and hurting, emphasizing that “everyone is significant and to reach people no one is reaching, we [HCC] will have to do things no one is doing”.

In his teaching, you will discover his unique love of rich biblical history and a thorough depth of knowledge of the Word of God. All of his teaching is explained in a way that is very easy to understand and apply. 

Michael and Lisa live in Anne Arundel County, Maryland and have four children, a son-in-law, and a granddaughter. 

Originally from Houston, Texas Pastor Michael is rarely without a glass of iced tea nearby. He’s deeply passionate about creating a life-giving church to help lead you to discover your gifts, and teach you how to use them to serve others, while also keeping life fun and authentic.
