Horizon City Forms of Unity:

In lieu of crafting a new statement of faith or new eldership affirmation of faith, our plan is to declare our joyful affirmation of a collection of pre-existing doctrinal statements that will be known as the “Horizon City Forms of Unity” (head nod to the theology nerds). The Horizon City Forms of Unity will include: the Baptist Faith and Message 2000, the Bethlehem Baptist Church Elder Affirmation of Faith, the Chicago Statement on Biblical Inerrancy, the Danvers Statement, and the Nashville Statement.
