Our Mission & Vision

 The mission of Horizon Community Church is to be a church with the community where followers of Jesus are in an ever deepening relationship…

With God through worship, prayer and the spiritual disciplines;

With God's Word to grow in knowledge and truth;
With one another in deep community; and

With others by loving them and sharing the Good News of grace through Jesus .

 

What We're About:  (Vision)
We want to live the life of Jesus … so we are modeling our ministry after his.
Matthew 4:23 – Jesus went throughout Galilee, teaching in their synagogues, preaching the good news of the kingdom, and healing every disease and sickness among the people.

Teach:
The Bible is inspired by God to give us instructions for living life to the fullest in this world he has created.  Each of us is on a journey of faith where we should be asking how we are to best live out the life of Jesus.  This leads us to explore and wrestle with God's Word, both communally and individually as we further our journey of faith, seeking to love the Lord with our whole being – mind, body, soul, emotions and experience.

Preach:
God's salvation is for the whole person and his redemption is for every part of creation.  We share the good news of God's grace through Jesus Christ and invite people into a relationship with him.  Jesus Christ is our only hope for the complete renewal of our relationships with God, with each other, with ourselves and with all of creation.

Serve (Heal):                                                                                                                              

The church is called to be a compelling force for good in this world.  It is not made to serve itself, but to serve and love this world.  God is already at work in the world and we are invited to join him to relieve suffering, fight injustice and oppression, meet the needs of the poor, and engage in making a transforming difference in the lives of our neighbors, in our community, and in this world.

Community (among the people):
God has created each person to image God.  To best image God, we live our life together in deep, significant relationships.  Living deeply with one another includes sharing each others burdens, celebrating with each other, correcting each other in love, confessing our sins to each other, sharing our possessions, and praying for each other.  God works in and through community.  Life as a follower of Jesus is not meant to be lived alone.

Joy & Celebration                                                                                                                

To live the life as a follower of Jesus is to live a life of joy.  Joy is experienced in communal worship, seeing God at work in people's lives, as well as in the little moments in life.  True joy comes from living a life of gratitude to God.  To live the life of God is to live life to the fullest.

How We're Going to Get There
We strive to be a church with the community where followers of Jesus are in an ever deepening relationship…
with God through worship, prayer and the spiritual disciplines;
with God's Word to grow in knowledge and truth;
with one another in deep community; and
with others by loving them and sharing the Good News of grace of through Jesus
