Our History


Horizon Community Church began when two churches partnered together to reach the surrounding community for Christ. Lee Memorial Baptist began in 1984 and Sunrise Community Church began in 2000, both with a heart for the Western Branch of Chesapeake and surrounding cites.  On February 1, 2010, the two churches combined and officially became Horizon Community Church.



Our Vision

To be a healthy, fun, and vibrant church that develops Christ followers and is involved in changing the world through church planting, and other innovative and creative ministries.



Our Purpose and Mission


To lead people into a personal relationship with God through Jesus Christ and to become totally committed followers of Jesus Christ.

Is growing in healthy relationships with others.

Is developing a servant attitude and is using their gifts, talents, abilities, and finances to help a local church lead people to become totally committed followers of Jesus Christ

A totally committed follower of Christ will serve, be connected to a local church, be involved in fellowship, share Jesus Christ with others, and will give financially to a local church.
