Statement from World Harvest Church

The complaints filed by a consortium of liberal ministers against World Harvest Church, the Center for Moral Clarity and Reformation Ohio are baseless and without merit.
Contrary to today¹s media reports, at their inception all three organizations were chartered and founded according to IRS guidelines, and all subsequent activity has been in full compliance with federal tax law.
It¹s interesting that on a Sunday evening, while World Harvest Church is having worship services, a group of left-leaning clergyman gathers in another church across town with what appears to be a political agenda.
Had they come to us directly, as people of faith are instructed to do in Scripture, they could have saved themselves a lot of time and embarrassment.
If this group was interested in our stand on moral issues, rather than generating media attention, why did they send a statement to the press on a weekend prior to a federal holiday, when IRS offices are closed?
Our goals are clear. Reformation Ohio has given out 140,000 pounds of food, helping to feed and clothe nearly 10,000 people across the Buckeye State. Thousands more have heard a Gospel message and almost 4,000 of that number have made commitments to Christ. We are helping to register 400,000 new voters from diverse and varied communities. In fact, our outreaches in Toledo and the Miami Valley were in predominantly urban neighborhoods. Our efforts are helping make Ohio a better state &SHY; one family at a time.
