What We Are About
Gospel Centered Community
Keeping the gospel central in everything we do.
In 1 Corinthians 15, Paul says that the most important thing to learn is who Jesus is and what He has done through the gospel. Therefore, we keep the gospel at the core of everything we do. We do this by gathering each week to devote ourselves to the book that God wrote, the Bible.
We see the early church was gospel centered. Acts 2:42 records that the early church, “continued steadfastly in the apostles doctrine and fellowship, in the breaking of bread and in prayers.” The church was submitted to the authority of the Scriptures and eagerly devoted to learning them. We too, are a learning community who gather each week to hear Gods word rightly preached, and respond together in worship. We believe that “all Scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness, that the man of God may be complete, thoroughly equipped for every good work” (2 Tim 3:16). As we study the scriptures we find our identity as His people, and our mission as His church.
Loving and serving one another
Horizon is a large church with thousands of people who attend services each week. However, church is more than attending a service or event. In the bible, the church is described as a body. As a body relies on every part to function properly, so we are interconnected and dependent upon one another. This gives a sense of ownership to the Christian, changing the mindset from spectator and attendee, to participator and missionary. When we gather, we intentionally love and serve one another as we eat, pray, worship, witness and do life together.
Missionaries to our local and global community
Jesus was a missionary sent from God the Father. He left heaven and came to earth on a rescue mission to seek and to save lost and broken people (Luke 19:10). Jesus told His disciples that in the same way the Father had sent Him, He now sends us, commissioning us to go into all the world making disciples in the power and authority of Jesus (John 20:21, Matthew 28:19-20). As people who have been reconciled to God, we now live as missionaries to our local and global community. We will engage our local college campuses, and participate in short and long-term mission trips to fulfill the commission God has given us.
