We seek to live out the following values as we use our expertise in the area of theological education to serve the body of Christ.
We believe that the Bible is the sound, complete, and incorruptible foundation and framework for all that Horizon teaches and practices. Therefore, we are committed to a growing understanding of God’s word and its integration in all that we do in preparing leaders for the church.
We believe that God is actively transforming his church into the likeness of Christ. Therefore, we seek to foster a commitment to lifelong learning in the context of community that transforms character, thinking, and ministry practice.
We recognize that Christ’s church is represented in diverse languages and cultures throughout the world. Therefore, we strive, along with our educational partners, to identify and understand the unique contexts that inform ministry training.
We affirm God’s desire that His church around the world steward wisely all that He has given. Therefore, we offer and support sustainable and affordable educational models to our partners through online learning and other educational technologies that extend quality training to leaders for the church, a vast majority of whom do not have access to theological education.
We believe God values all members of the body of Christ equally and is actively accomplishing His purposes in a variety of ways through diverse cultures. Therefore, we foster global partnerships, encouraging a spirit of interdependence, collaboration, and sharing that enriches the educational process.
We believe that God is creative and innovative, as demonstrated through his creation of the universe and humankind made in his own image. Therefore, we encourage our partners to employ strategic innovation in response to the changes within their cultures, communities, and contexts to effectively accomplish their mission.
We believe God continues to gift his church around the world with the necessary means to meet local ministry priorities. Therefore, to achieve long-term locally-sustainable theological education, we provide shared learning spaces for cross-cultural interaction, resource sharing, and professional development while assisting partners to meet local quality standards.
