A Welcome from Our Pastor

We are so thrilled that you have taken the time to visit our website. We trust you will find your visit one that is inspiring and informative. Our church has a passion to know Christ and make Him known to others. We believe that the Bible is the inspired Word of God and our standard of faith and conduct. We are a group of worshippers from different ethnic and denominational backgrounds who have come together to seek God's presence, see His kingdom come, and His will to be done on the earth. Our desire is to see heaven invade earth.


Our Mission

New Horizons Church of God exists to reach local, national, and international peoples of the world with the gospel of Jesus Christ. To heal, restore, equip, and engage followers of Jesus in the work of His ministry locally and abroad. 

 

 



Pastor Keith and Hae Suk Arensmeyer


What to Expect

New Horizons Church of God is a Pentecostal church which means we embrace the spiritual outpouring and empowerment known as the baptism with the Holy Spirit. Because this outpouring is so similar to the experience of the early Christians on the day of Pentecost, it is called a Pentecostal experience, an enrichment of the Christian life through the power of the Holy Spirit that empowers believers to be effective witnesses of Christ and to walk in victory over sin. We believe that the Lord is still able and willing to heal both our spirit and our body. You will find many personal testimonies of His healing power bearing witness to this reality in our church.

We believe true, heartfelt worship brings us into the very presence of the Living God and that it is a sweet fragrance to Him. For this reason, we:

What We Believe

Scripture 

We believe in the verbal inspiration of the Bible.

God

We believe in one God eternally existing in three persons; namely, the Father, Son, and Holy Ghost.

Jesus

We believe that Jesus Christ is the only begotten Son of the Father, conceived of the Holy Ghost, and born of the Virgin Mary. That Jesus was crucified, buried, and raised from the dead. That He ascended to heaven and is today at the right hand of the Father as the Intercessor.

Salvation By Grace Through Faith

We believe that all have sinned and come short of the glory of God and that repentance is commanded of God for all and necessary for forgiveness of sins. That justification, regeneration, and the new birth are wrought by faith in the blood of Jesus Christ.

Sanctification

We believe in sanctification subsequent to the new birth, through faith in the blood of Christ; through the Word, and by the Holy Ghost.

Holiness

We believe holiness to be Godís standard of living for His people.

Baptism with the Holy Spirit

We believe in the baptism with the Holy Ghost subsequent to a clean heart. In speaking with other tongues as the Spirit gives utterance and that it is the initial evidence of the baptism with the Holy Ghost.

Water Baptism 

We believe in water baptism by immersion, and all who repent should be baptized in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost.

Divine Healing

We believe divine healing is provided for all in the atonement.

Lordís Supper & Foot Washing

We believe in the Lordís Supper and washing of the saintsí feet.

Premillennial Second Coming

We believe in the premillennial second coming of Jesus. First, to resurrect the righteous dead and to catch away the living saints to Him in the air. Second, to reign on the earth a thousand years.

Resurrection, Eternal Life & Eternal Judgment

We believe in the bodily resurrection; eternal life for the righteous, and eternal punishment for the wicked.


Practical Commitments

Spiritual Example

We will demonstrate our commitment to Christ through our loyalty to God, our commitment to His church and to the work of Christ as good stewards.

Moral Purity

We will engage in those activities which glorify God in our body and which avoid the fulfillment of the lust of the flesh. We will read, watch and listen to those things which are of positive benefit to our spiritual well-being.

Personal Integrity

We will live in a manner that inspires trust and confidence, bearing the fruit of the Spirit and seeking to manifest the character of Christ in all our behavior.

Family Responsibility

We will give priority to fulfilling family responsibilities, to preserving the sanctity of marriage and to maintaining divine order in the home.

Behavioral Temperance

We will practice temperance in behavior and will abstain from activities and attitudes which are offensive to our fellowman or which lead to addiction or enslavement.

Modest Appearance

We will demonstrate the scriptural principle of modesty by appearing and dressing in a manner that will not cause a fellow brother or sister to fall into sin through lust.

Social Obligation

We will strive to fulfill our obligations to society by being good citizens, by correcting social injustices, and by protecting the sanctity of life.
