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 Bethlehem Baptist Church Elder Affirmation of Faith, the Chicago Statement on Biblical Inerrancy, the Danvers Statement, and the Nashville Statement.
