Horizon Codes

The Horizon Codes are nine beliefs that dictate how Horizon operates.

We are all about the “capital C” church!

    The local church is the hope of the world and we know we can accomplish infinitely more together than apart.

Matthew 16:18

 

We will lead the way with irrational giving.

    We truly believe it is more blessed to give than to receive.

Acts 20:35

 

We are faith-filled, big thinking, “bet-the-farm” risk takers.

    We’ll never insult God with small thinking and safe living.

Luke 7:1-10. Hebrews 11:6.

 

We will love you where you are but we will not leave you there.

    Jesus gives us grace and calls us to live obedient lives.

Romans 5:8. Luke 9:23.

 

We will laugh hard, loud, and often.

    Nothing is more fun than serving God with people you love!

Philippians 4:4.

 

We always bring our best.

    Excellence homors God and inspires people.

2 Peter 1:3-11.

 

We are spiritual contributors, not spiritual consumers.

    The church does not exist for us. We are the church and we exist for the world.

Matthew 5:14-16. Ephesians 2:10.

 

We will honor Christ and His Church with integrity.

    If we live with integrity, nothing else matters. If we don’t live with integrity, nothing matters.

1 Chronicles 29:17. 1 Peter 2:12.

 

We will do anything short of sin to reach people who don’t know Christ.

    To reach people no one is reaching, we’ll have to do things no one is doing.

Mark 2:1-12.
