Our Statement of Faith

We believe the Bible is the final authority for our faith and we therefore affirm the following:

  • That the universe was created by the one true God;
  • That all human beings are made in the image of God and are of infinite worth;
  • That because of humanity’s original and ongoing rebellion against God, not only are we separated from God but all creation suffers the result of sin;
  • That God sent his one and only Son, Jesus, to provide the way back to God and to pay the price for our sin by his death on the cross and resurrection from the grave;
  • That we are called to follow Jesus and be active participants in his redemption of the world through the work of His Church;
  • That God is with us through His Holy Spirit, enabling us to live a life that honors God;
  • That one day Jesus will return and bring complete restoration to all of God’s creation.

Our History

Horizon Church got started through a Bible Study that began meeting at Bud & Donna Daneker’s home in July of 2004. About 15 people participated in that original Bible Study. We held our first public Sunday morning service on Sunday, October 24, 2004, at the Salisbury Township Middle School. Approximately 35 people came to that first service. Renovations at that school caused us to move to the Harry S. Truman Elementary School in June 2005, where we met and grew through the end of 2012. By the time we left Truman, we had grown to around 100 people on an average Sunday.

We were blessed in 2012 with the opportunity to purchase our new church home, located at 2613 West South Street, Allentown, PA 18104. We were able to close on the purchase, and move into our new location during the first week of 2013. January 6th was our first worship service, where Pastor Bud helped remind us of the vision, as well as share a bit of the history of our current building in his message The Heart of the Neighborhood. While we are not part of the same denomination as the previous owners, we are brothers and sisters in Christ, and honor and respect them for the ground work they have laid in our new neighborhood.
