In these challenging days everyone needs a caring family where we can receive spiritual strength and encouragement for the uncertain days  ahead. We trust that this will be your experience as you engage with us.

It is our desire as a church family to assist you in whatever way we can. We are a group of ordinary people from all walks of life who have been touched by the love of God and have a personal relationship with Him. We enjoy informal, warm and uplifting services on Sundays with our Sunday School meeting in the hall during this time. We believe that the preaching of God’s Word is vital to our spiritual growth and to help us to live as God intended us to, in order to glorify Him in every way.

 

We look forward to meeting you in person at one of our normal Sunday Services which are at 9am and 6pm.

Bible Studies

Here at Horison Baptist Church we love God’s written word.
It is not just a line in our statement of faith that declares the authority of His written word but rather it is an attitude we refer to as a Berean attitude. We desire that we would be of noble character like the Bereans who “received the message with great eagerness and examined the Scriptures every day to see if what Paul said was true” Acts 17:11 .

What is Baptism?

What we Believe at HBC concerning Believers Baptism

The Scriptures teach us that there is only one Baptism (Ephesians 4:5) for those who have received Christ as their personal Lord and Saviour i.e. true believers.
Baptism is a command of our Lord Jesus to all who would follow Him as a true disciple. (Matthew 28:18-20)
Jesus Himself was baptized by John the Baptist in order to fulfil all righteousness (Matthew 3:15). There are numerous other instances in Scripture where believers are baptized in the Early Church for example
Acts 2:41 and Acts 8:26-40.
The act of baptism in water, by full immersion, is according to the Scriptures: Acts 8:38 and is a demonstration of the spirtitual reality which happens when a person receives Christ astheir personal Lord and saviour as outlined by the apostle, Paul in Romans 6:1-4.
Baptism also speaks of initiation into the body of Christ (Gal 3:27) and also of identification with the church (Eph 4:3-6)
While Baptism cannot be a prerequisite for Salvation (Ephesians 2:8,9), it does however demonstrate the true believer's obedience as a disciple who is willing to acknowledge Christ publicly.
