We at Camp Horizon believe that the Scriptures are of paramount importance, and as such, must be the foundation for all of our thinking and activities in our camping program.
We believe in the Scriptures of the Old and New Testaments as verbally inspired by God and inerrant in the original writing; they are of supreme and final authority in faith and life.
We believe in one God, eternally existing in three persons: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. We believe that Jesus Christ was begotten by the Holy Spirit, born of the Virgin Mary, and is true God and true man.
We believe that man was created in the image of God, that he sinned, and thereby incurred not only physical death but also that spiritual death which is separation from God. All human beings are born with a sinful nature, and, in the case of those who reach moral responsibility become sinners in thought, word, and deed.
We believe that the Lord Jesus Christ died for our sins, according to the Scriptures, as a representative and substitutionary sacrifice, and that all who believe in Him are justified on the basis of His shed blood.
We believe that all who receive by faith the Lord Jesus Christ are born again of the Holy Spirit and thereby become children of God.
We believe in the resurrection of the crucified body of our Lord, in His ascension into heaven, and in His present life there for us as High Priest and Advocate. We believe that the Church began with the descent of the Holy Spirit at Pentecost and is composed of all true believers in the Lord Jesus Christ. The local church is composed of believers in a locality who gather together in Christ's name for worship, prayer, ministry, and testimony.
We believe that there are two Christian ordinances--baptism and the Lord's Supper. Baptism by immersion signifies that the believer, having died with Christ, is buried with Him in baptism and also is risen with Christ to walk in newness of life. The Lord's Supper is a remembrance feast instituted by the Lord Himself for His own, to show forth the Lord's death until He comes.
We believe in the imminent personal return of the Lord Jesus Christ to translate the Church; that this will be followed by the tribulation on earth, followed by the new heaven and new earth with God all in all.
We believe in the bodily resurrection of the just and unjust, and everlasting punishment of the lost.
