Core Values of New Horizons Christian Church (expressed in action words) As the people of God, we commit ourselves to:

Word of God

We are committed to the Bible as the Word of God, and our final authority for rule and practice. We cherish and honor God’s revealed Word. We value careful biblical teaching and doctrine. We welcome the exposure of our own error and sin so that we can walk with Jesus in the truth.
Deuteronomy 6:20 & 11:18-21; Psalm 119:160; Proverbs 30:5; Matthew 28:18-20; 2 Timothy 3:16-17; Hebrews 4:12; 2 Peter 1: 19-21; Isaiah 55:11

Spiritual Growth

We are intent on discipleship for people from childhood and beyond through the study of God’s word. We teach and practice kingdom principles that encourage Christ-like spiritual transformation. We provide teaching for believers to carry on a personal daily devotional life with God in a way that deepens their intimacy with Him. Our goal is to pursue
excellence in all aspects of church life to bring glory to God. We desire to be conformed to the image of Christ as individuals and as a congregation.
Matt. 28:20, Matt 5:13-15; Matt 7:17-19; Romans 8:29; Gal 2:20; 2 Corinthians 3:18. 2 Corinthians 5:17


We will be a “House of Prayer”. We value prayer in all we do. Prayer must be the power source behind everything we do. It is essential that we seek God first before doing anything else. We believe that prayer changes things; changes lives; and demonstrates our full dependency upon God.
Matthew 7:7-11; Philippians 4:6; I Thessalonians 5:17-18


Our goal is to express our devotion to God through joyful praise and intimate worship. We will gather with instrument and song, to praise God with joyful enthusiasm.
Romans 12:1-2; John 4:24; Psalm 22:22; Psalm 35:18; Ephesians 5:19-20; Colossians 3:16, Hebrews 12:28-29


We are a community of caring relationships who care for each other. Our goal is to see every person loved and cared for in such a way that they feel accepted, valued, and have a sense of belonging. We share our lives with others in the body of Christ, getting to know one another and letting ourselves be known. We share hospitality. We seek to be a place of unity and peace amid a de-personalizing society.
1 Peter 4:8; Matt 5:41; Luke 10:34-37; Ephesians 4:2,25-32


We teach and model servant-leadership through our church members who apply their spiritual gifts to the work of ministry to others. Our desire is to see every member develop their God-given abilities, gifts, and passions. We live to give of our time, talent, and treasures to those in need within and outside our congregation.

We are a life focused church, where everyone is encouraged to participate in the mission and goal of the church, seeking opportunities to use their gifting within the body of our local believers.
Mark 12:31; Romans12:6-8; Ephesians 5:1-2; I Peter 4:10-11


With the changing tides of modern Churches, it is necessary for us to know what we believe, know why we believe it and be able to share it with confidence. Statements of faith help to establish the basic belief system of a church and promote unity among members. A statement of faith is not a replacement of scripture it is simply a summary of scriptural truth’s that we are called to adhere to if we are to be a part of the church.


We believe that the Scriptures in all 66 books of the Old and New Testaments are verbally inspired of God, error free in the original manuscripts, and the supreme authority of faith and practice for followers of Christ.
     2 Timothy 3:16-17, 2 Peter 1:20-21, Hebrews 4:12


We believe there is one living and true God, who is one in essence, while eternally existing in three distinct persons: Father, Son and Holy Spirit.
     Deuteronomy 6:4


We believe that mankind was directly created in the image of God to enjoy His fellowship and fulfill His purposes on earth. However, in Adam, all mankind fell into sin; consequently, all people are spiritually dead and subject to the certainty of both physical and spiritual death apart from faith in Jesus Christ.
     Genesis 1:26-27, Romans 1:18-32; 3:10-23

Salvation and Grace

We believe that Jesus Christ died for our sins as the only sufficient sacrifice. Salvation is by the grace of God through faith in the death, burial and resurrection of the Lord Jesus Christ. Salvation is wholly of God based on the redemption of Jesus Christ, the merit of His shed blood, and not based on human merit or works. In order to be saved we must personally accept these truths and thereby accept the cleansing blood of Christ, which alone can atone for sins.
Genesis 12:1-3; John 1:12; 3:16; 14:6, John 3:16; Romans 5:9-10;   28-39; Ephesians 2:1-10

The  Church

We believe that all who are “born again” by the Holy Spirit belong to the one true church and are instructed by the Scriptures to associate themselves in local, visible churches.
      Acts 2:41-47, Hebrews 10:24-25, 1 Corinthians 12-14


We believe in worship as a vital part of our service. We believe that true worship is an expression of our love and commitment to God for who He is, what He has said, what He has done, and what He is doing. We believe that God’s people worship Him in Spirit and in truth, and that He is both pleased and present when we do. We believe that worship is an active response to God whereby we declare His worth. We are committed to genuine worship where God’s presence is felt, God’s pardon is offered, God’s purposes are revealed, and God’s power is displayed.
      Isaiah 43:7; I Peter 2:9; Psalms 95:6-8; Revelation 14:6-7


We believe that the life of our church should be bathed in prayer, and we are committed to calling the church to prayer, and training members to be prayer warriors. We believe that the course and direction of our church will be as empowered and directed of the Spirit of God according to our prayers. Prayer is VITAL.
     James 5:16-17

Baptism and the Lord's Supper

Baptism is a clear injunction of the Scriptures which outwardly expresses the inward reality of new life in Christ. Our method of baptism is immersion as described in the New Testament and practiced in the early church. We believe that the Lord’s Supper is a memorial of Christ and His redemptive death. It is also an expression our fellowship with one another. In communion we are reminded of Christ’s first coming and encouraged to look forward to His coming again.
Matthew 28:18-20, Romans 6:3-7, 1 Corinthians 11:23-29


Once you become a believer in Christ, we believe you should make a commitment to grow. Discipleship is a life-long process of following Christ, which takes faith, patience, endurance, and determination.
John 8:31-32; 15:7; John 13:35; John 15:1-7; Luke 14:26; Luke 9:23; Luke 14:33. Luke 11:1; Matthew 10:24


Biblical Stewardship means receiving and sharing God’s gifts and managing them for God’s purposes. Christian Stewardship is the practice of systematic and proportionate giving of time, talents, and material possessions based on the conviction that these are a trust from God to be used in His service for the benefit of all mankind in grateful acknowledgment of Christ’s redeeming love. Giving is a means of honoring God and is a great indicator of our heart.
I Corinthians 3:9; I Peter 4:10; Luke 6:38


We believe that Jesus Christ leads the local church through a plurality of elders who have been called, gifted, and appointed by Him. By seeking the mind of Christ, depending upon the Holy Spirit and diligently examining the Word of God, the elders provide spiritual oversight and direction for the church. The qualifications of elders are character based as defined in 1 Timothy and Titus, and the decisions of the elders require unanimous agreement.
1 Timothy 3:1-13, Titus 1:5-9, Acts 6:1-6

The Sanctity of Human Life

We believe that all human life is sacred and created by God in His image. Human life is of inestimable worth in all its dimensions, including pre-born babies, the aged, the physically or mentally challenged, and every other stage or condition from conception through natural death. We are therefore called to defend, protect, and value all human life.
Ps. 139

Marriage and Family

We believe that marriage is an ordinance of God, established by Him and is the union of one man and one woman for life.

Enormous cultural and legal landscape changes were made concerning the nature and definition of marriage in the United States. We affirm all human beings, including those in the Lesbian, Gay, Bi-sexual, Transgender, Queer/Questioning (“LGBTQ”) community, are made in God’s image, precious in God’s sight, and deserve the fullest measure of love, respect, dignity, and support. While we fully offer them our love and pastoral support, we nevertheless, hold to our beliefs that marriage is intended for and ordained by God as a solemn covenant between one biologically born man and one biologically born woman for life.
Genesis 2:15-25; Matthew 19:1-12

The Future

We believe the next great event of human history will be the personal return of Jesus Christ. This is the blessed hope for which all those who love Christ yearn. While the exact time of Christ’s return is unknown; it is imminent and certain.
     Matthew 24-25, 1 Thessalonians 4:13-18
