Meet Nick & RyleyWe have some really amazing students here at Horizon.  Our community is small and tight knit, and therefore it is easy to get to know one another.  It has been a joy to get to know each and every one of these students over these past few months and we want to give you the… Read More Meet Nick & Ryley [...]

Did You Know?Recently, some of the staff members were reading the story of our college’s history in Songs of the Reaper. As we read through it, we were struck by the rich history of Horizon College.  While there were many facts and stories that stood out, the one thing we could not ignore were the parallels between history and modern day.  … Read More Did You K [...]

What it Really Means to be BAPTIZED IN FIREI’m not talking about “fire tunnels,” where people walk in between two lines of people who place their hands on them and pray for them. Instead, I’m talking about when John the Baptist says Jesus “will baptize you with the Holy Spirit and with fire” (Matthew 3:11 and Luke 3:16). What does this mean? [...]

3 Beautiful Facts about the Holy Spirit Every Christian Should Know (but too often get wrong)Many Christians have the incorrect (dare I use the H word?) idea that the Holy Spirit only works in Christians.

She Believed God Called Her, So She Did.Beloved, what if we took God seriously when we’re invited to “Be Strong & Courageous” and “Go Do”? How would your daily life be different if you actually believed yourself in Christ to be strong, to be able, to be gifted? What would be different for you today if you absolutely believed that God called […] [...]

Yearning for God…intentionallyPrayer was a continuous way of life in the desert. It was intentionally cultivated until it became second nature. Prayer involved the hard work of learning a new language – the language of heaven. For the ascetic, prayer was not merely the speaking of words. It was the yearning for God, reaching out in hopeful […] [...]
