What we

Belief

  • The Bible

    The Bible is the inspired Word of God, a revelation from God to mankind, the infallible rule of faith and conduct, and is superior to conscience and reason, but not contrary to reason (2 Timothy 3:15-16; 1 Peter 2:2).

  • God – Eternal, Creator, Redeemer

    The one true God has revealed Himself as the
    eternally self-existent “I AM,” the Creator of heaven
    and earth and the Redeemer of mankind. He has
    further revealed Himself as embodying the principles
    of relationship and association as Father, Son, and Holy
    Spirit (Deuteronomy 6:4; Isaiah 43:10, 11; Matthew 28:19;
    Luke 3:22).

  • Jesus – Son of God, Savior, Resurrected

    The Lord Jesus Christ is the eternal Son of God. The Scriptures declare His virgin birth (Matthew 1:23; Luke 1:31; Luke 1:35), His sinless life (Hebrews 7:26; 1 Peter 2:22), His miracles (Acts 2:22; Acts 10:38), His substitutionary work on the cross (1 Corinthians 15:3; 2 Corinthians 5:21), His bodily resurrection from the dead (Matthew 28:6; Luke 24:39; 1 Corinthians 15:4), His exaltation to the right hand of God (Acts 1:9; Acts 1:11; Acts 2:33; Philippians 2:9-11; Hebrews 1:3).

    That man was created good and upright, for God said “Let us make man in our image, after our likeness.” But man, by voluntary transgression, fell, and his only hope of redemption is in Jesus Christ the Son of God (Genesis 1:26-31: 3:1-7; Romans 5:12-21).

    Man’s only hope of redemption is through the shed blood of Jesus Christ the Son of God. Salvation is received through repentance toward God and faith toward the Lord Jesus Christ. By the washing of regeneration and renewing of the Holy Spirit, being justified by grace through faith, man becomes an heir of God, according to the hope of eternal life (Luke 24:47; John 3:3; Romans 10:13-15; Ephesians 2:8; Titus 2:11; Titus 3:5-7). The inward evidence of salvation is the direct witness of the Spirit (Romans 8:16). The outward evidence to all men is a life of righteousness and true holiness (Ephesians 4:24; Titus 2:12).

  • Holy Spirit – Co-equal, Co-eternal and Co-existent

    The Holy Spirit is the third person of the Godhead. He is co-equal, co-eternal and co-existent with the Father and with the Son. His ministry upon the earth is to convict and covert man as well as be the great paraclete (comforter, counselor, helper, intercessor, advocate, strengthener and standby) to the Church. The baptism of the Holy Spirit and Fire is a gift from God as promised by the Lord Jesus to all believers and is received subsequent to and is distinct from the experience of New Birth. With it comes the enduement of power for life and service, the bestowment of the gifts and their uses in the work of the ministry (Luke 24:29; Acts 1:4; 1:8; 1 Corinthians 12:1-31). The Baptism of the Holy Spirit is meant to empower the believer to be a witness of Jesus Christ by the preaching and demonstration of the Gospel. The gifts of the Holy Spirit are also evidence of this experience. Whereas there is one initial baptism, there are many subsequent infillings of the Spirit. The ultimate purpose of the Baptism of the Holy Spirit is so that we, the believers, may have power to be witnesses (Matthew 3:11; John 14:16-17; Acts 1:8; Acts 2).

  • The Bible

    The Bible is the inspired Word of God, a revelation from God to mankind, the infallible rule of faith and conduct, and is superior to conscience and reason, but not contrary to reason (2 Timothy 3:15-16; 1 Peter 2:2).

  • Healing

    Deliverance from sickness is provided for in the atonement and is the privilege of all believers (Isaiah 53:4-5; Matthew 8:16-17).

  • Baptism

    The Lord Jesus Christ, Head of the Church, established two ordinances for the Church to follow: Water Baptism and Communion. Baptism in water, by full immersion, is a direct commandment of our Lord. It is for all believers. This holy sacrament identifies the believer with Jesus in His death, burial and resurrection (Matthew 28:19; Acts 10:47-48; Romans 6:4; Acts 20:21; Hebrews 10:22).

  • Communion

    The ordinance of Communion is also a commandment of the Lord Jesus that must be received consistently until His return. Only believers can come to the Table of the Lord, which consists of the bread and the cup. The bread – His body, which was broken for us. The cup – His blood that was shed for us. Both elements are witnesses of the New Covenant believers now enjoy while prophetically declaring His soon return (2 Peter 1:4; 1 Corinthians 11:26).

  • Sanctification

    The Scripture teaches that without holiness no man can see the Lord (Hebrews 12:14). We believe in the Doctrine of Sanctification as a definite, yet progressive work of grace, commencing at the time of regeneration and continuing until the consummation of salvation at Christ’s return. (I Thessalonians 5:23; 1 Corinthians 1:30; 2 Corinthians 3:18; Philippians 3:12-14)

  • The Church

    The church is the body of Christ, the habitation of God through the Spirit with divine appointments for the fulfillment of the great commission. Each believer, born of the Spirit, is an integral part of the church of the firstborn, which are written in heaven (Ephesians 1:22-23; 2:22; Hebrews 12:33).

    A divinely called and scripturally ordained ministry has been provided by our Lord for the threefold purpose of leading the Church in: Evangelization of the world (Mark 16:15-20); worship of God (John 4:23,24); edification of the body of Christ (Ephesians 4:11-16).

  • Resurrection

    The resurrection of those who have fallen asleep in Christ and their translation, together with those who are alive and remain unto the coming of the Lord, is the imminent and blessed hope of the church (1 Thessalonians 4:16-17; Titus 2:12; 1 Corinthians 15:51-52; Romans 8:23).

  • Promises

    The revelation of the Lord Jesus Christ from heaven, the salvation of national Israel, and the Millennial reign of Christ on earth is the Scriptural promise and the world’s hope (2 Thessalonians 1:17; Revelation 19:11-14; Romans 11:26-27; Revelation 20:1-7).

  • Judgment

    There will be a final judgment in which the wicked dead will be raised and judged according to their works. Whosoever is not found written in the Book of Life, together with the devil and his angels, the beast and the false prophet, will be consigned to everlasting punishment in the lake which burns with fire and brimstone, which is the second death (Revelation 19:20; Revelation 20:10-15).

     

    “We, according to His promise, look for new heavens and a new earth wherein dwelleth righteousness.” (2 Peter 3:13; Revelation 21, 22).

Dr. Cindy Jacobs

President and Co-Founder Generals International Dallas, Texas
Mattheus van der Steen is a major pioneer in world evangelism. He goes to places that few others would consider going to preach the gospel; even into war-torn areas. He is a man of great courage and integrity. Mattheus is recognized by top world Christian leaders as one of the top young influencers in existence today.

His wife, Laura, works alongside him and is also known as a great Christian leader. Laura and Mattheus together are a team that effectually work to bring the whole gospel to the whole world.

Ev. Daniel Kolenda

Evangelist and President of Christ for all Nations | Lead pastor Nations Church
When I think of couples that God is using mightily in the world today, people who have a uniquely powerful and authentic voice to their generation, Mattheus and Laura van der Steen are at the top of that list. They have been dear, personal and faithful friends to me and my family for a long time, as they were to Reinhard Bonnke (who founded our ministry). Their relentless dedication to sharing the Gospel through Harvest Fields International, in challenging, unreached areas is nothing short of inspiring. Mattheus' Kingdom-minded leadership and Laura's gifted relational skills combine to form a dynamic force for good. I wholeheartedly endorse their ministry, a beacon of hope and transformation, as they touch countless lives, heal hearts, and bring the light of Christ to dark corners of the world. Partnering with Harvest Fields International means investing in eternal impact, and I am privileged to stand with them in this extraordinary journey of faith. May their passion for the Great Commission ignite your own faith and commitment to advancing God's kingdom.

Mattheus van der Steen is a man I love and trust. His courage is an inspiration, and the impact of his life is impacting nations.

Heidi G Baker, PHD

Co-founder and Executive Chairman, Iris Global
Mattheus van der Steen is a tenacious and passionate man of God. I love his childlike faith that leads him to make bold decisions for the sake of the gospel. When Holy Spirit speaks, he moves… no matter what, no matter where. As he launches Harvest Fields International, he is building upon a rich legacy and spiritual history with the Lord. I believe, through this ministry, many people will be trained and equipped to step into their own callings with this same bold faith that Mattheus and his team walk in. Spend time with Mattheus and you will definitely be encouraged, inspired and ready for more of God.

Ben Fitzgerald

Senior Leader, Awakening Europe
I have known Matt and his wife Laura closely for the last 8 years, and every time I see what they are doing for God I am excited. I am excited because they are stewarding the great gifts God gave them and using them to build up the global Church into a passionate Jesus focused people. The experience and history of walking in faith to see thousands saved in large crusades across the world, as well as their hunger to help people experience the Holy Spirit is second to none. I am thrilled they have started this new ministry and highly recommend them to anyone who is seeking them out, it will be a great blessing to you are your people.

Europe shall be saved | IAHM
The moment I’ve met Mattheus Van der Steen, I immediately saw the strong call of God in his life for this generation. He is part of this new anointed leader shaving a breakthrough anointing to bring the Kingdom of Heaven with a demonstration of power to territories and especially the closest one. Knowing Mattheus since many years, being my very close friend considering as my twin brother, I’ve seen how God is using him in front of big crowd but also how he fought the good fight of faith when he was passing through hell.

Johannes Hartl

Director of Augsburg House of Prayer, Germany
Mattheus van der Steen and his team of passionate missionaries have served the great commandment faithfully and with great impact in many nations. These are fierce pioneers who don’t hesitate to undergo dire circumstances in order to see souls won for the gospel. As a personal friend for years I am deeply moved by their work and fully endorse their missionary endeavours.
