New Horizons Community Church is located in the central Sarnia neighbourhood. We are a welcoming community who are passionate about living for and serving God together, and sharing His love within the Sarnia-Lambton community and beyond. From humble beginnings over a storefront in Point Edward in 1889, NHCC has grown through loving relationships and the genuine generosity of spirit that Jesus calls us to.
Our Vision: We envision with anticipation a Christ-centered, relevant community that is faithfully anchored yet intentionally flexible as we obediently respond to the Spirit's leading to bring God joy. Embracing the Great Commission and following Jesus, we will actively and passionately go beyond our doorsteps as His witnesses, serving others and building healthy relationships to share God's love. Meeting and partnering together as a hospitable, welcoming community, we will focus on teaching truth, equipping and mentoring one another in becoming mature disciple makers, trusting that as we do so, God will be glorified.
